Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell High Definition hits PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360

Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell High Definition is a remake of the award-winning Splinter cell trilogy that debuted back in 2002. Not much has changed with Splinter Cell on PlayStation 3 or Splinter Cell Xbox 360, but this isn’t always a bad thing for fans of the Splinter Cell series. Each Splinter Cell game on Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell High Definition is mostly presented as gamers remember, except with updated gaming graphics.

Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell High Definition – The Plot

Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell High Definition follows the adventures of Sam Fisher, who is an expert covert operations agent. Fisher has to sneak past guards, plant explosives and kill his enemies mostly without being seen. Each Splinter Cell game included in Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell High Definition combines slow, steady yet tense stealth espionage with action-packed battles that will be sure to keep longtime fans of the Splinter Cell trilogy and newcomers to Splinter Cell Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 entertained.

 

The Splinter Cell Game – What You Get

Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell High Definition contains the entire Splinter Cell trilogy: Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell, Pandora Tomorrow, and Chaos Theory. The best Splinter Cell game to be included in Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell High Definition is undoubtedly Chaos Theory. It’s the most open ended Splinter Cell game, which allows for more exploration and creativity. The visuals have also aged much better than the other games in Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell High Definition, and it is clearly the Splinter Cell game that has benefitted the most from the High Definition conversion. Some minor technical issues that were present in the first two games in the Splinter Cell game series have also been fixed. Overall; Chaos Theory is the superior Splinter Cell game.

Full Splinter Cell Trilogy – For the Fans

Unfortunately, the other games included in Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell High Definition don’t hold up nearly as well as Chaos Theory. They are much more linear than what gamers would expect from Splinter Cell Xbox 360, and the graphics aren’t nearly as sharp. Still, the first two games in the Splinter Cell trilogy are welcome additions for those who want to experience an early Splinter Cell game. There are also new High Definition missions in the first Splinter Cell game to give longtime fans something new.

Splinter Cell PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 – The Drawbacks

The only real drawback to the Splinter Cell game is the lack of the multiplayer options that were included with the release of each Splinter Cell game before. These multiplayer modes were very popular and an essential element to any Splinter Cell game, so it’s a shame that most of them have fallen by the wayside.

Splinter Cell Xbox 360 vs. PlayStation 3

Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell High Definition is available on both the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. There isn’t a big difference between Splinter Cell Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3 version, so as usual it comes down to which system you would rather play Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell High Definition on. Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell High Definition is still very much worth a look, both for the excellent Chaos Theory (which still holds up as the best Splinter Cell game) and for the earlier games that are included. Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell High Definition gets a thumbs-up.
