Inventive, with room for polish

User Rating: 7.7 | Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Essentials PSP
I just give explanations for the attribute scores I gave to make it easier for you to decide on whether or not its worth a buy.

Gameplay-definately harder controls without 2nd joystick(bad); can swap the camera controls(good); can reverse left-right with the camera(good) however it also screws your aiming left-right(bad) but leaves your walking alone(good)

Graphics-as stated in another user review the gameplay vids on Gamespot are better looking than the actual game(bad); shader quality is poor(bad); there are cutscenes(good) however they are mostly still action(bad)

Sound-voice acting(great); even while tiptoeing along your footsteps come pounding out of the speaker(bad) constantly(worse)!

Value-any brand new game at $40 gets a 10 from me

Reviewer's Tilt-Its Splinter Cell(always good); its enjoyable so it shouldn't be screwed with a terrible score
