Summary

Great Single-player game, but the true beauty of this game is the amazingly addictive and fun multiplayer.

The Good

The single player missions are all right, and true to most all other Clancy games this one has a wonderful story and 9 missions, though the box said that there were 17 single player missions. Even so, it doesn't matter to me because all that I do is play the multiplayer. The graphics are even better than the first game, and the sound has gotten even better. The music will start to get more intense as the enemy grows in suspicion. As you raise the alarm level, by somehow getting detected, the guards upgrade their armor and awareness levels. As I said, the true beauty of this game is the multiplayer. The multiplayer is simple and ingenious. You play as either a spy or a mercenary(merc). There can only be 4 people playing at once, 2 mercs, and 2 spies. You can play with a system link, or via Xbox live. The spies try to hack the ND1333's, these are boxes that contain a virus that the spies must neutralize. The spies have nonlethal weapons, but ultimately a skilled spy will kill a merc. every time they meet. The mercs. have assault s, frags, mines, and a very powerful tazer. The maps are large and well laid out. It is so fun. There are also so many glitches it is not worth mentioning them all. I know of 9 in the warehouse level alone. You can find them elsewhere, as I consider them to be cheap. Splinter Cell Chaos Theory(due out sometime in November of this year) will have amazing graphics, I just hope that it's multiplayer will stand up to the test.

The Bad

Not much. Some levels where you couldn't get any alarms were hard, but that's it.

The Bottom Line

Buy this if you've got Xbox live, and even if you don't, it's worth at least renting.
