I've played each of these to completion.   I can still remember hunting down the demo at Toys R' Us for the original Splinter Cell on the Xbox!  This is, by far, one of my favorite genres, and Splinter Cell (for the most part) has been a shining example of it.

Nope.  I like stealth games, but the modern military setting of the SC games never clicked with me.

I would kill for a new Tenchu game.  frown

Never even got close.  I tried a couple of them, but as much as I enjoyed the gameplay I just never stuck with it long.  I think there was always some other title competing for my time.

I've beaten every Splinter Cell game so far and enjoyed them all. I think Chaos Theory is the pinnacle of the series, but Conviction did take things in an interesting new direction. I like the gadgets and sneaking of the early games more, but the faster pace of Conviction is fun in its own way and left me thinking that the next game will probably be worth playing once it's released.

I've finished all of them, IIRC.

I agree that Chaos Theory was the best by far.  I liked the first one a lot, but I imagine it wouldn't be as fun to play today.

I'm not convinced about Conviction, but the shift in art style was neat.

Definitely *snap neck* and a big YUP for me.

Beaten:
Splinter Cell (Xbox)
Splinter Cell (GameCube, w/GBA as game aid)
Splinter Cell Pandora Tomorrow (Xbox)
Splinter Cell Chaos Theory (Xbox & PC)
Splinter Cell Chaos Theory co-op missions (Xbox)
Splinter Cell Double Agent (Xbox, played on 360)
Splinter Cell Double Agent co-op missions (Xbox, played on 360)

Started
Splinter Cell Conviction (360)

So yeah I'm a big fan of the franchise, but I have to say the direction UBI took the series in with Conviction has left me feeling less enthused about it. I know a lot of people felt that beginning with Double Agent, but then most played the 360 or PC version and missed the truly excellent and superior Xbox version.

[Edit] Oh yeah, Chaos Theory was by far the best.  slywink

I think I may have beated Chaos Theory on the PC.  I know I played it a ton at least.

I unfortunately missed out on the Xbox version of Double Agent as well.  It sounds like Ubisoft is really focused on this new Splinter Cell though - they are looking to revive the franchise, and they've brought three studios to bear to do it!  Glad to see Spies vs. Mercs back on the map - I think I see a GT Game Night on the horizon...

I'm pretty sure I beat the original (on PC) on an easier difficulty level. I bought one sequel but didn't stick with it long enough to finish it.

I didn't play Double Agent or Essentials. Otherwise I've beaten them all.

Conviction was less than Chaos Theory, due to Sam pretty much "going loud" the whole time. Felt like a cover-based shooter more than a sneak-fest. Art style and direction was fantastic otherwise.

The new one? It's the best of both worlds. As Ron can attest, I like to kill everything and toss 'em in the drink. Even the dogs. biggrin biggrin

I've beat them all except for Essentials and the next-gen edition of Double Agent.

When I played Pandora Tomorrow I didn't realize it had save anywhere so I played the whole game checkpoint to checkpoint. The guards had pretty set patrols in that game so I got really good puzzling out each area. I would go into a room, turn off lights, hug the walls and walk right behind a guard as he came by to check on the switch and sneak out the back door. All sorts of long stretches of perfect stealth. Felt really cool playing that way. If I had known about save anywhere I probably wouldn't have enjoyed it as much.

I'd like to replay the original on PC sometime soon because I only played the crappy PS2 version.

I finished the first one.  Do not know why I never wanted to play another.
