    Splinter Cell faces the technical limitations of the King

    Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Double Agent

    Splinter Cell faces the technical limitations of the King

    As much as I love my PS2 I have to admit that maybe Double Agent shouldn't have been made for it - it simply isn't capable - a lot of time is wasted waiting on saving/loading and the lighting limitations really show too.... Read Full Review

    Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Essentials

    It's great if you don't keep your expectations high

    I mean what did people expect? The PSP can only do so much and has one joystick. Personally I'm enjoying Essentials, I would give it 7/10 but I'm giving it +1 for being Splinter-Cell-on-the-PSP.Bad controls? Try Metal Ge... Read Full Review
