Game Reviews: Splinter Cell Pandora Tomorrow

Splinter Cell Pandora Tomorrow is the second game of the Splinter Cell game series. The Splinter Cell game series is an espionage game series that stars the Third Echelon NSA agent Sam Fisher. In the games of the Splinter Cell series Fisher has come against various terrorist groups and in Pandora Tomorrow Fisher is up against the Indonesian terrorist Sadono who has planted biological bombs on American soil.

In many respects, Splinter Cell Pandora Tomorrow is very much the same as the original Splinter Cell game. There are few noteworthy modifications. This is probably not a bad thing, after all the original Splinter Cell game was a very good game and so the sequel did not need to change that much.

The most notable new addition to Splinter Cell Pandora Tomorrow is in fact its multiplayer mode for the Xbox Live. As such, Splinter Cell Pandora was the first game in the Splinter Cell series to include a multiplayer gameplay mode. The team based multiplayer mode includes Argus mercenaries against Shadownet spies. This multiplayer mode is a good addition to the Splinter Cell game, even if it is limited to four players.

Although Splinter Cell remains more a single player game than one for multiple players. The single player game includes up to eight missions to play through. Most of these missions are somewhat linear, and during the game Third Echelon give Fisher mission objectives to meet. These objectives are always given in a specific order during the missions. Although the missions in Pandora Tomorrow have a variety of settings such as jungles, airports, passenger trains and cities such as Jerusalem.

From a graphical perspective it is not a big enhancement on the first game either, with some moderate enhancements. Again, however, was a graphical overhaul ever required? There are still plenty of good effects in Pandora Tomorrow, among which the game's lighting effects are the highlights in much the same way as the original Splinter Cell game. Pandora Tomorrow also has some great animations.

The game's audio is crisp and clear. However, Pandora Tomorrow includes little in the way of soundtrack during missions. There are some short musical scores included at points in the missions which could have been further expanded.

Overall, Splinter Cell Pandora Tomorrow is a worthy sequel to the original Splinter Cell game. Although the single player campaign is not greatly enhanced, the innovative multiplayer mode was certainly an exciting enhancement to the Splinter Cell game series. Aside from that there was not much else new in this Splinter Cell game, but its single player game certainly matched the original.
