"Your jaw will drop!"

The wait is finally over! Splinter Cell Pandora Tomorrow is here! The game re-defines the genre like its predecessor did back in 2002. This game takes stealth action to a new level with awesome graphics, sound, gameplay and superb online capabilities. This game is worth every penny and even comes with a free two month x-box live subscription (which you still need a credit card to activate). If you liked the first title then you will LOVE this game.

Game play: 10/10

The controls for this game are easy to use. The buttons take a little getting used to if you have never played a splinter cell game. Take the time to learn the controls, you will have so much fun with this title. Ubisoft did everything right here giving you a very immersive game experience. The action is fluid and handles well. I have yet to find a glitch in the game play. Online play is un-believable and playing this game without trying it Live would be a sin. All your stealth moves look very well refined and the motion capture is at the top of its class. This being a stealth game, some people might find it frustrating because you can't just go around shooting people, you have to take your time and plan your attacks. Playing patiently is the key to the game.

Graphics: 10/10

Another home run here. Graphics look incredible. Jaw-dropping as far as console games are concerned. You would be hard pressed to find a better looking game in this genre on any console. Smooth textures, great frame rates and a really polished look. Ubisoft took a lot of time on the graphics and it shows. The cinematic's are in a class on its own. They are very well rendered and could even be mistaken for live action in some parts. This is the future of all games and I can't wait.

Sound: 10/10

Complimenting the stellar graphics, Ubisoft threw in some great voice acting and sound effects. Lots of effort was put into the sound effects and can be noticed when listening to your footsteps on different surfaces etc. The score for this game is fitting, but I like playing with the music off as it adds to the atmosphere of sneaking around silently.

Replay Value: 10/10

With some of the best online play on X-Box Live this game will keep you interested for a long time. Perfecting you game in each level is also a challenge. You will likely get at least a month out of playing this game and I personally have put in over 20 hours so far and I only picked it up five days ago.

Pros

- Stellar graphics and sound
- Top 3 X-box Live games
- Tonnes of replay value
- One of the best games for Xbox

Cons
- All games are not like this
