    Not on par with splinter cell but worth picking up.

    Rated on July 30, 2006 by bigplaya77

    After buying this game, i really liked it. The game takes a minute to get you into the action, but well worth the wait. While nowhere as good as splinter cell, this game has some innovative attribu...

    A poor man's Splinter Cell.

    Cold War is unoriginal, uninspiring, broken and ultimately not worth your time.

    Rated on March 15, 2006 by ChipsDubbo

    Picture Splinter Cell. Now take every single aspect about that game that made it so fun to play and rip it to pieces. The outcome is a remarkably bad game called Cold War. Boy oh boy, where do I start...

    Cold war is nothing but a cold, boring and unneccesary war to battle the other stealth action-adventure genre games.

    Rated on November 30, 2006 by esbshalo

    Cold War looks like a game that's worth a look or maybe an effort to go through or check it out. It's a stealth action and adventure game that has some tricks up it's sleeves. Unfortunately, the tr...

    Not Excellent, yes not bad by a long shot!

    Rated on December 03, 2005 by dspent

    After reading reviews of this game one would believe that it sucks. In fact I find it quite the opposite. Sure at first glance you think you are playing a Splinter Cell wannabe that just doesn't add...
