Michael Ironside is a great voice actor. Have you ever seen Heavy Metal 2000? What a deliriously fun guilty pleasure it is. Gratuitous violence, nudity, profanity... well, gratuitous everything, really... and Michael Ironside playing it up as the mentally unstable, vicious, maniacal villain. I highly recommend you go find a copy of it to watch the next time you need to kill an hour and a half. Great stuff. What? You came here looking for a review? Damn, I was really hoping it wouldn't come to that. I'd really rather talk about Michael Ironside (or maybe just animated boobies) some more. When you get right down to it, Splinter Cell 3D just isn't worth discussing. In fact, the reason I kicked off with that digression is because the voice acting is the only decent thing I could come up with in this game's favor. But if you've already played a Splinter Cell game, you're already aware of the quality voice acting, and Ironside's portrayal of Sam Fisher in particular. And actually, if you've played Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory, then you're already aware of everything that happens in Splinter Cell 3D; this is just a port of the old 2005 game that was released on last-gen hardware, with a light dose of 3D sprinkled on top.
Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory on the original Xbox is like the master spy of stealth games. The re-release on 3DS is more like the junior detective. This portable Splinter Cell may have the same levels and the same storyline, but it's just a shadow of what Chaos Theory offered. What's been lost? Competitive multiplayer, co-op storyline, heat vision goggles, choosing mission loadouts, quick save anywhere, great graphics, and smart enemy AI. Remaining is the core single-player story, the gameplay basics, the original voice work, and some of Sam Fisher's cool gadgets. There are a few things added in for a little bit of spice to a pretty watered down experience. You'll be hacking quite a bunch of computers and those hacks are handled with a spatial puzzle. Select from a half-dozen puzzle pieces to guess which fits a broken cube. It's only easy for the first level and then the puzzles start to get pretty tough. Also new in Splinter Cell 3D is a nifty bit of presentation called "projected text." Tips and objectives are written out on the walls. Splinter Cell 3D takes place long before the recent Xbox 360 game, Splinter Cell Conviction. Sam Fisher needs to stop a mad man from starting World War III. No pressure.
Chaos Theory - any self respecting Splinter Cell fan will tell you - is the best entry in Tom Clancy's stealth action series. With new moves, rag doll physics and some of the best visuals to grace the Xbox up until that point, it's fair to say that Sam Fisher hit his stride with number three. Of the original trilogy, then, this was the perfect candidate for a three-dimensional port.I have a tendency to rely on the phrase 'spruced up' to describe a remake of an old game, but using it here would be all kinds of wrong. Ignore the three-dees and you're left with something that is significantly less pleasing on the eye than the original; a game that was first released over six years ago.It pains me grumble about graphics this early on in my appraisal, but many people will be expecting more out of their shiny new 3DS, especially if - like me - it's the first full game you've played on the system. Character models lack detail and the impressive lighting that made the original such a looker is nowhere to be seen. True, Fisher pops out the screen nicely and there's a good sense of depth to each environment, but the novelty of this wears off about the same time the dull ache behind the eyes starts to kick in.
Well-regarded stealth-em-up Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory was ported to the original DS back in 2005 with little success. Splinter Cell 3D is another attempt at a handheld version of Chaos Theory, and though this reworking benefits from the 3DS's new controls and, to some extent, from its extra graphical oomph, it is an insubstantial offering: the original game's single-player campaign re-created in 3D, with a couple of forgettable minigames. Beyond the 3D visuals, there's no big innovation for the 3DS. You can control the optic cable used for peering under doors by tilting the console from side to side, but there are no multiplayer modes. (Even the critically panned 2005 DS port had co-op and versus modes.) The most adventurous it gets is to project mission objective text into the environment, as lifted from the recent Splinter Cell: Conviction, which looks smart, but that's all. There's nothing as exciting as that game's mark and execute feature, making this a disappointingly timid first sortie into the third dimension for the Splinter Cell series.
