Splinter Cell is one of the first shooter games on WP7!
Overall Score: 5/5
After you learn the controls, Splinter Cell is extremely fun with good presentation and great lasting value!
Getting used to the controls will take some time, but after that, you’ll probably love Splinter Cell. There are so many different elements in the game, from taking cover to fire fights, that it is always entertaining. Plus, the pacing is just perfect. The action keeps going, and you simply want to keep playing. The only thing that can be difficult is trying to move while shooting, but you hopefully won’t have to do much of that, since this is a stealth game. Figuring out how to sneak up on enemies is extremely fun. You can even use a small mirror to look under doors and see what’s behind them!
The visuals are good, but nothing absolutely stunning. Load speeds are slower than the iPhone (probably because it was ported from the iPhone, and not made primarily for WP7). A lot of the dialog in the game doesn’t have a voice to it, so you’re stuck reading. But the music soundtrack is dynamic and flows perfectly with the action!
Lasting Value: 5/5
You’ll find yourself spending many hours on this game! Plus, after each level you are rated via grade letters on how well you did, so there’s an incentive to go back and perfect levels. And finally, there are three different difficulty levels, so you can always step up to the next level and challenge yourself.
