    "How to **** up a loved series", written by Ubisoft.

    Tagline: "Just when you thought it couldn't get any worse".

    "First take a great book, then make it into a game. Get people to like it and they subsequently screw it over with more and more problems, bugs and "original" concepts to detract it further and further away from what it was originally".

    In all good bookstores now, priced £9.95.

    I understood that the games had bugs but was SC: DA that bad?

    Now now Bindi, 1,2, and 3 were awesome games. I'm playing through SC: DA for the first time now, and although the gameplay's excellent, it's very buggy, badly explained and very, very fat (No game should need minimum 2GB of RAM to run vaguely playable imho).

    The single player's always fun, but my favorite part of SC was the multiplayer and Ubisoft really screwed with that in Double Agent. Bring back the co-op and spy v. merc games from Chaos Theory!

    Well a broad daylight stealth game sounds like a nice new take on the stealth game series. Also the idea of misinformation adds a new edge to the genre as well, forcing people to find creative solutions to otherwise bland problems.

    (PS - Only played SC:1 and 2)

    Well I love the Splinter Cell Series, sure DA was kind of buggy but is was a hell lot of fun, too! I hope Ubisoft wont do as it does best: Ruin a great series... Rainbow Six comes to mind! It were those tacticle elements that made you spend hours on one god damned misson and made it so challenging, but with Vegas it has evolved to a sensles "holywood-shooter". I beg that they wont do this do SC.

    1 was fantastic

    2 was a little meh

    3 was good but really buggy and had the whole ATI/NVIDIA SM3.0 fiasco.

    4 was so buggy it was seriously flawed. It was also quite boring and I missed Lambart.

    The worst one was the DS version.

    It made little children who walked past me whe I was playing it burst into tears and want to die.

    I always thought sc was a great concept game wise but there
    never was a balance between stealth and action. playing sc/da was great with sm3 but the bugs were obvious. I think
    the game is getting a little stale and needs some new blood!
