Ok, this game impresses me. I had purchased the first Splinter Cell for I
was on the Xbox team at the time and had watched with awe at the graphics.
Overall I thought it was an ok game but never finished for there were better
games out at the time. I was not caught up by the game for again, felt it
was cool and all but nothing to draw me in for long time periods.
SO, now SC:CT is released. I see all the reviews love it. It gets unreal
scores and is said to be a visual masterpiece. So, being the gamer I
am....I buy it. WOw, I am soooo glad I did. This game is so fun and looks
amazing. The best thing I can say about the game is, no matter how many
times I die or how stupidly I do something and need to restart, I am never
angry. You know when you are playing a game and you have to keep doing a
level over and over again. You get so mad that you never play the game
again out of pure frustration? Never have that here. I want to do it again
to do it better.
SO, I am not going to talk in depth here for I do not want to give anything
away. I will also say that I am only on mission 2 but I want to redo mision
1 all over again. I only got a 33% upon completion. I was spotted 6 times
and killed everyone. Guess my stealth needs to get a little better...lol.

So, buy this game. It is worth every penny :)

Ditto on everything you said. When I first played it I thought it was going
to be too difficult to pass the levels with only 30 bullets on the hand gun
and 60 on the machine gun. I thought i would find more ammo but I came to
find out that it can be done without extra ammo.

I'm on the 4th level and I like that I'm finding new uses for all the
gadgets, like the red light on the hand gun, it has come in handy many
times.

If I remember right, you go into a vent that is to your left. Follow the
vent and you will come to a room where the pumps are at. There are 2 baddies
to take care of and then you turn the pumps on. This will allow you to go
into the room that was flooding.

I got stuck there too til I checked the map and saw there was some kind of
narrow passage between that room and another area. Went back and sure enough
there's a vent you can crawl into.

Once you get the hang of using the map (it's a little confusing at first)
you'll hardly ever get stuck or lost.

I hate dieing in games over and over, its the height of frustration. But for
some reason being killed over and over in the Splinter Cell games never
bothered me. Pandora Tomorrow was alot easier and did not die alot in that
game.
Chaos Theory is a visual beauty. I am having a few problems with the
camera, sometimes it gets too close up to Sam, but graphically to look at it
is amazing eye candy. The level of detail is amazing. Trouble is, its
games like this that turns people into graphics whores.

Yes I can see why this could cause people to demand awesome graphics and
then base a game's worth on it but, it is also games like this that show
you, if used correctly, graphics can really enhance an already great game.
SC:CT is a real example of how presentation should be done. That is more
important than just how the game "looks". I mean, the graphics are great
but it is the atmosphere that they help create that is indeed awesome. If
more games concentrated on immersing me into their world rather than trying
to wow me with graphic features, I would be writing more posts about how
great games are :)

Have you managed to work out the hacking? I do not understand how to do it
and I feel it is blocking my progress.

It's actually rather simple, although my explanation might not be, but here
goes.

On the left is a series of numbers of which you will eventually choose one.

On the bottom right is another display with numbers that light on and off.
Keep an eye on those numbers, and remember which ones light up. Some show up
on the screen but don't light up so you don't have to remember those. They
also don't light up in the same order as the list on the left, so sometimes
the middle number will light of first or the last number.

Once you have the numbers look them up from the list on the left and choose
that series of numbers.

Hope I didn't confuse you, tell me if this helps.

That's "Chaos Theory", not "Tomorrow". The "T" in SC:CT stands for
"Theory", not "Tomorrow".

Great game! I like that you can save at any time (instead of making
it to checkpoints), even though I know it will shorten the game,
because you don't have to keep repeating sections.

I also like that you can temporarily disable lights and cameras
without the noise of shooting them.

The only real thing that bothers me in this game is that it seems alot
darker than the other two. Its all very well having lovely graphics, but at
least give us a chance to see them. Having to use nightvision for alot of
the game takes away the joy of the eye candy.

Yes. I was joking. That was what the smiley was trying to show. I was
playing the dumb certain-hair-colored gamer card.

On the right hand number display, correct numbers will
occasionally highlight. Enough of them should highlight to
let you know which one is the correct code in the left
column. If you don't figure it out before time runs out,
hit the B button to back out and try again, but it will be a
different code the next time.
