I've played the demo, it was quite impressive.
Only thing that bothered me was the fact that the lightning searching thingy sight doesn't detect lightning.

Yeah, I'm picking up a copy today as well. I've heard a lot of good things and the online co-op sounds fun.

Ugh, I have the busiest week this week, and almost no time, but I DID play some Versus mode, and it was sweet. Oh was it sweet. Some of the new gadgets are really nifty, and the team-spy moves are super cool :D

I thought it wouldn't be released until tomorrow? Ah well. I might get it. I mean, i really like splinter cell and i have nothing better to do, so...

hmmm....I have no idea what you are talkin about. I thought this was a thread about the metaphysical concept of Chaos Theory :(

Maybe you can fill us in or linky us to something :)

Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory Greatness (http://www.splintercell.com/us/splintercellchaostheory/index.php)

That is what ET is talking about and I am excited for playing the co-op.

I just played the first level of Co-op with my friend, and it was honestly the most fun I think I've ever had in a video game. It was absolutely BRILLIANT, and chock full of awesomely cool moments. Like the time there were two guys sitting on a couch watching TV and we shot them both in the head at the same moment, or when my friend followed a guy into a room, and just as he stabbed him in the back I stepped up and cut the throat of his buddy watching the doorway.


Amazing. Absolutely amazing.

Are the co-op levels from the singleplayer campaign (well, campaign... you know what i mean) or are they speciffically made for co-op?

EDIT: oh, and if you like splinter cell and humor, check this out.

Little off-topic, but still splinter cell...

Co-op has it's own levels,specifically made for them, but do go along the story line of single player. I heard there are only like 4 levels. But the first level took about an hour to beat. And it is serouisly awesome. I love using the headset, and yelling and the mercs actually hear you and come looking for you. And when they do, theres a knife waiting for them from your partner. It is so awesome doing co-op moves. Words do not describe how cool it is, you have to play it!

ET Warrior

Seriously, what he said.

It is absolutely delightful timing your executions of guards or terrorists or whatever so they both drop at the same time and you have two badass looking spies standing over their cooling corpses :D


It's also sweet when a teammate lowers you down by your ankles so you can use a computer or a keypad that is unreachable by other means.


I could go on, it's just something I totally recommend for anyone who likes video games and has at least one friend :D

You realise that requirement rules out at least half of LF, right? :p

Anyway, I played the demo a bit and it seems cool. Too bad I can't pick up the weapons of my slain foes...

Actually, what they do need is a katana. You know, like the one Sephiroth had in FFVII. Then, like, Sam can just jump down and go "swoosh" and kill countless revolutionaries in a bloody rampage.

That'd be sweet.

I'm a little strapped for cash atm for the PC version. Happens to me when a new game comes around.

With good reason too, this game can be downright gruesome. Like when I came across a guy sleeping on a cot and I snuck up and just slit his throat....


I felt kinda bad :(

Tokarev

When you grab a victim, is there no way to incapacitate without that knife? I tried it on the demo, but I guess not..

In almost all scenarios, pulling the left trigger will incapacitate a victim in a non-lethal manner. If you have a hold of them you simply choke them, if they're walking you punch 'em in the head, and if they're laying down you knee them in the head.

I've been playing the versus Beta for some time now, getting the hang of it.

I haven't played the single player yet, and I don't know if I want to buy the game. I'm trying to cut back on the amount of video games I play.

I am really looking forward to Battlefield2 but right now I just play Counter Strike: Condition Zero.

I just don't know if I want to spend the money on SC:CT, I've already played it and I can't make up my mind. Sure it's an awesome game, but I think I can hold out until Battlefield2 comes out and then I'll be satisfied gaming wise.

But I definetly rule that SC:CT is an awesome game.

I got the XBOX version on the 30th, for the CO-OP and Live.

Lol, I didn't think of that, my bro and I just froze the TV, made them freak out, and grabbed them. Basically when I play it, its a back breaking and throat slashing fest. :p

Oh, try smacking a baddie at between "9-11" and "1-3" o'clock, oh- and when you do it, it helps to yell "And stay down you little bitch!" :D

But it doesn't have to be. In fact, to 100% a level, you can have no killed gaurds. That's the only reason I was able to rent the game.

This game is sweet. I loved the upside down neck snap and the first level when you toss the guy to his doom from the tower. And the fishing boat when you stab them and add insult to injury by throwing em overboard at the same time. It's sooooo much fun.

Can't wait until monday, me and a friend are gonna clean out the co-op mode :D

Oh yeah :D

Well, my bro turned 18 last week, so I could convince him to get it for me, but I really haven't been playing many games right now, and for some reason have no inclination to do so :(

I'll get it when the price goes down.

Sounds like a cool game, maybe after ive saved up for Halflife2 and got cable and saved up for more games ill buy it :p.

I have the game, and it's good and all. but I think I built up the anticipation and hype for myself a little too much, because I was slightly let down with it. Metal Gear Solid 3 was better imo.

this is called "Meeting a Chick You Scored When You Were Drunk" Phenomenon. Its in stephen hawkings book. p.69 :p

I may play this game at a firends just to see what the hype is about. Of course, I'll probably have a seizure before Ive fired a damn shot :( damn malfunctioning brain :(

So I finally played the Versus Mode on Chaos Theory and I have to say that I love it. All of the new gadgets make it a completely different game from the Versus Mode on Pandora Tomorrow.

This is definately going to be taking up a lot of my time.

Hence the small font. :D

But I shall make this post to get us back on track:

SC:CT has been getting some good reviews lately, and although I've never tried more than a small demo at a store of any Splinter Cell game, CT is making me think about checking out the series.

Now, if only I could play gun games :xp:

I've changed my opinion on this game quite a bit since my original post in this thread. It really is an outstanding title. One of the best this year for sure.

But it's no God of War. God of War=best game I've ever played. Hands down. Seriously.

ET Warrior
04-18-2005, 01:12 PM
I'd really like to play God of War, but I've no PS2 to do so.

Yesterday I got into the versus mode for the first time, and it was REALLY fun. The new maps, new gadgets, and new weapons for mercs really changes the game a LOT.

LukeKatarn
04-18-2005, 01:46 PM
If only it wasn't rated M... The box says "STRONG LANGUAGE" and "INTENSE VIOLENCE", is the language really THAT strong? If it is then they ruined SPlinter Cell, Pandora Tomorrow had like 3 swears in the first three levels. :( Never played the first one though.

ET Warrior
04-18-2005, 03:07 PM
I honestly didn't notice any cursing, but that COULD be due to the fact that I myself curse like a sailor on shore leave, and such things don't really stick out to me.

The Seeker
04-19-2005, 01:58 PM
The cursing is nothing you wouldn't hear in a PG-13 movie. The violence can be pretty gruesome. At least gruesome in the manner in which you do it if not with blood, of which I saw none.

The knife just made the game for me, but consequently, I think that the knife is what earned the M rating. I guess sniping unwary foes from a hundred yards is less violent to the ESRB than sneaking up beside a guy and slitting his throat. Though, you can't help but smile when he falls over making gagging noises and never even knew you were there.

Feanaro
04-19-2005, 03:46 PM
Theres mostly cussing when you make a noise and they know you're there. They call you a B@*$&, and such. Thats the only cursing i've noticed.
