Yeah....If it makes you feel better. I said it could take 'SOME' methods....Just to make the game feel more complete and fresh from the previous Splinter Cells (which is what I wanted). If SC:CT character models were up to scratch, they could actually have some short non-FMV cut-scenes here and there just to make you feel immersed and make the game flow, and add a much needed break in some of the repetitive gameplay. And between each mission, all the Splinter Cell games have this stop-and-start feel to it. Like you're just thown into some place to complete some mission/objectives which I've done many times before. Basically you're a MGS-bashing Splinter Cell-loving fan. Bias sees no truth. You dont even know what you're talking about anymore: The first comment I SUPPOSEDLY said was that 'I think Splinter Cell and Snake Eater are similar games'. There's a difference between THAT, and me wanting Splinter Cell to use some story-telling methods used in Snake Eater. Is that such a crime? Fix up man. If you look at the post above yours, I stated that Chaos Theory is the best game in the series. I called it a 'great' game. There's a difference between CT and the previous games - correct. But in CT, the gameplay is still repetitive as time goes on. Sure they've added some nice features, but every level is more or less the same - Missions are usually completed by looking at a computer etc and in the end killing or interogatting some hostages along the way. And when you've got past one guard, you can get past them all. At least with MGS, you have these cut-scenes, and a great interwieving story to break-up and add to the gameplay. I just felt CT added little to the series.....and towards the end of the game, I was antcipating the ending (hoping it would come sooner than later), and when it did come, it was just like 'oh...ok'. So all I do is pick this guy up and walk over to the window - great. I just thought maybe they would've had better story-telling in it. As said, SE has raised my expectations - I cant help that. The thing with you is, you seem to think I hate the game. I like it alot...It's just that after playing the other versions of Splinter Cell, I just felt that maybe more could've been done to evolve to game as a whole. The actual gaming experience wasnt THAT great. When I first played SC, I was TOTALLY emmersed. But by CT, my enthusiam wasnt as high due to boredom at times. You're just presuming what I think, and reading too much between the lines.......Go to sleep. Thankyou.
