First, I was really dissapointed at this game at first, but i got used to the single-player. At first, i thought the level design and overall story-line was bad, but starting on about the 4th level it grew on me. The graphics are good but dont blow me away. i like unlocking new gadgets the further i advance. Im very dissapointed that there's no offline co-op. Personally, I believe that the multiplayer is awful. It seems way to arcade like and fast paced compared to games of past, so i wouldnt recommend this game for online play. If your looking for some classic splinter cell action, single player should treat you well.
