Splinter Cell Essentials

#1Arok2092Posted 3/14/2012 8:14:25 AM
I'm a huge Splinter Cell fan but never owned a PSP. Is Essentials its own game or is it a port of Double Agent? Also does it being on the Vita make it any better?

Thanks for any help!

I'm curious to know this, too. And if the right analog can somehow be used to control the camera and aiming. I remember the reviews mainly complaining about that.

i was/am also curious. i dug this up from metacritic. It looks like its a combination of levels from a few games to get you up to date (2006) with the story. i may be wrong.

I had the game on PSP....honestly its not worth the money. Yes its a compilation of previous SC levels, but its very clunky, technically its pretty rough and its just not as good as you are hoping

If its just a compilation I guess I'll probably pass on it. But otherwise you underestimate my love of SC. The only one I don't like is Conviction.

Yea the 1 button kill everything in the room was fun at first and but it really wasn't Splinter Cell anymore. I want the old school Splinter Cell.

I have a lot more hate for it then just that but that was a big problem. I want the classic Splinter Cells back too.

You really think its worth it?

I don't care what critics say. Scores don't matter to me. As long as I find a game fun its worth it to me.

Im a huge SC fan as well (Chaos Theory is still one of the best stealth games ever made) but I still think this game isnt worth the money, but thats just my opinion.
