!!!A FASCINATING EXPERIENCE!!!

To start with, the storyline, which is always a vital element in any game, is one that follows the general Splinter Cell medium. This is good because it keeps SC fans interested; I mean they don't want to see an almost tragic change in storyline do they. The whole information warfare fiasco is one that is intriguing and keeps gamers on the edge of their seats; as THEY ARE Sam Fisher, and they have to deal with terrorist threats, as they feel necessary.
The outstanding aspect of this game is that unlike in the previous games, where Sam had to maintain a code red level of secrecy at all times (which I found acceptable, seen as he is an American spy being somewhere he's not supposed to be), in this game the player (as Sam) can complete the mission in the professional, stealthy manner OR they can do it Rambo style. This is because the game now allows you to carry different attachments with your SC-20K, such as the shotgun attachment, sniper attachment, and foregrip attachment as well as the default launcher attachment.
Another improvement that has been made is that, enemies are now a lot more intelligent than they used to be, as they don't fall for any lame distractions that may have helped players get rid of enemies in previous games. Yes, you can always argue that enemies have weak attributes that gamers can take advantage of; but consider this: it is very likely that gamers who play Chaos Theory have played the previous two SC games, and this means that their method of playing will have evolved along with the game itself. Therefore, if you were to get someone who has played the previous games, and check their overall rating at the end of the game, they are more likely to get a score of over 90% than a player who is playing for the first time.
Finally, I'd like to add that having played the game, and now seen the trailer for the upcoming new edition to the series Splinter Cell Double Agent; I can tell you with certainty that this franchise is one that can carry on evolving, due to its innovative creators. Be sure that the new game will have features that at the moment are unthinkable; but then that's why the creators of SC are sitting by their computers creating the game, and we're here playing the games and writing reviews to compliment and praise those who dedicate their time so that us gamers can play fantastic games such as Splinter Cell.
Another final comment; I'm going to give the game a 9.8 as oppose to a 10 because I know that the next Splinter Cell is going to be outstanding, and if I were to give this game a 10, how could I possibly rate that game any higher :D
