splinter cell is a blatant rip off from MGS and that is a fact. MGS maybe more arcadey, but it gives u the freedom to play the game the way u want......so ppl may think u can use brute force to finish the game thats a lie, if people actually play the MGS2 the way its meant to be played then u can see its even more stealthier than SC.
Another thing SC is way to restrictive......u can only do 1 thing 1 way.....its way too linear and doesnt give u the freedom to do the things u want....MGS is more exploration and experimentation, while SC is trial and error....i was sick of triggering 3 alarms in the first level....and have to do it over 20 times....thats pathetic....its way too trial and error.................and ubisoft just released SC to one up MGS..........its pathetic, they couldnt come up with anything original so they copied MGS right down the enemy AI patterns....dont believe me.......then read this
"It wasn't long before Sony's rivals would secure their own stealth hero. Ubisoft readied Splinter Cell for release on Microsoft's Xbox a year later, and the game quickly became Xbox fans' answer to Metal Gear. Though very different in gameplay, the similarities between Metal Gear Solid and Splinter Cell are obvious. In fact, Splinter Cell copies Metal Gear's AI design outright, with various stages of enemy alertness, sound triggers, and patrol paths."
yeah so please dont even tell me, they ubisoft made splinter cell with no inspirations from MGS.....anyone who thinks SC is the better game is either a fanboy or very bitter.....MGS is MILES AHEAD of SC.....in each and every MGS game they gameplay has changed significantly from MGS2 to MGS3 (camouflage) (no - radar)....and then look at SC......the gameplay has not evolved ONE IOTA....its pathetic... MGS IS LEAGUES AHEAD OF SC and thats a fact
