Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow for Xbox
The ultimate action-adventure stealth game series is back! Hail Sam Fischer, the lone guardian of the Earth from terrorists and other such uncouth rogues; this time around the popular NSA agent must travel to Indonesia in order to stop the bad guys in their diabolical plan.
Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow was at first mistaken as being identical to its predecessor, and whilst that claim isn't entirely unfounded one thing you will not find in the original is the excellent multi-player mode. Here, Fischer must find the location of biological bombs and then, in a twist, eliminate a rogue colleague to rid the world of the last remaining smallpox virus bomb.
Players can choose from a wide range of solutions to any given situation; arm yourself to the teeth, or attempt to conceal yourself. The choice is yours.
The two teams are called Spies and Mercenaries; one player must act as a spy and fight against the other player, who is a mercenary. This makes for a more complex multi-player experience than a typical death match game. Both characters have particular skill sets and weapons to help in their plight against the enemy.
All of these attributes can be used in the single-player campaign too, making for a more engaging challenge. Whether you prefer to creep around in the shadows using night-vision goggles, or are more interested in blasting your way through each stage, Pandora Tomorrow's atmospheric lighting and elaborately designed maps ensure the experience is nothing short of revolutionary.
