    Splinter Cell faces the technical limitations of the King

    Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Double Agent

    Rated on April 17, 2014 by margevich

    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 limitati...

    Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Essentials

    Rated on March 09, 2014 by margevich

    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 co...
