Inventive, with room for polish
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
