In 2008, modern warfare has become a battle of - and for - information that threatens to throw the world out of balance. To counter new information attacks originating in North Korea, Third Echelon deploys elite Splinter Cell Sam Fisher, a highly skilled covert operative deep into hostile territory to collect critical intelligence by any means necessary.
Tom Clancy's name on gaming titles is rapidly becoming synonymous with outstanding gameplay and cutting-edge visual quality. This third episode in the Splinter Cell series is no exception.
Like its precursors, Chaos Theory is a stealth action game, sporting superbly detailed locations brought to life by some of the best dynamic lighting ever witnessed in a game. Once more, players will find themselves immersed in this unstable geopolitical environment as the thrilling storyline unfolds.
Supporting the intriguing plot and atmospheric visuals is a wealth of features, including totally open levels and secondary objectives that add immense replay value. Adding to the challenge of sneaking through the hostile environments is the advanced enemy AI, which now sees your foes remembering their environment and past events.
Sam also comes equipped with a bevy of hi-tech weaponry and gadgets, and his range of athletic and stealth skills have been expanded further still, making for an incredibly fluid, hyper-real experience.
Split-screen two-player cooperative missions make for a stark contrast to the lonely crusade of the 'regular' covert operations, requiring teamwork and careful coordination to succeed.
If playing well with others is not your thing the evolved online two-on-two versus multiplayer option will be. All semblance of cooperation goes out the window as you take on friends in one of two game modes (scenario and disk hunt) as either stealthy Shadow Net Spies or heavily armed Argus Mercenaries.
