3. 'Splinter Cell 3: Chaos Theory' (NGC/PS2/Xbox/PC)

In Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Chaos Theory, the year is 2008. Citywide blackouts, stock exchange sabotage, electronic hijacking of national defense systems: This is information warfare. To prevent such attacks, operatives must infiltrate hostile territory and aggressively collect critical intelligence, getting closer than ever to enemy soldiers.

Kris Graft: Stealth fans, rejoice. It doesn't seem that long ago when Sam Fisher kicked ass in Pandora Tomorrow, but like it or not, he's back. With new moves, weapons, modes, and better A.I., SC3 will outrank even the excellent SC2. The new co-op mode requires you to perform team tactics, such as repelling and constructing a human ladder. The SC series has always been known to raise the bar in the graphics department, and SC3 appears to be following the pattern. It's only a matter of time before Armageddon erupts between MGS and SC


Nathan Mourfield: I have been a fan of Tom Clancy's work in general and the Splinter Cell series in particular. I love the campaign mode in the previous two games, and Chaos Theory promises to take that ball and run it from goal line to goal line. The graphics are just truly amazing, taking them beyond what anyone expects from the Xbox. I was less than impressed with the previous installment's multi-player co-op, but I'm interested in seeing how things are implemented this time around.

Corey Owen: Splinter Cell has done something for me that no other series has ever been able to do: deliver an innovative gaming experience with each subsequent release. The team at Ubisoft could simply have written a new story, thrown together some new levels and re-released Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow, and we would have bought it just the same. Instead, they put together the most original multiplayer experience delivered in game in over 10 years. If that weren't enough, they are doing it again by including online co-op in Splinter Cell 3. Are we seeing a pattern here? There is something extraordinary about teaming up with your friend to save the world that elevates a game to greatness, and this game looks to take the cake.
