Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell 3D 

Available on Nintendo 3DS (Ubisoft)

Splinter Cell 3D is very similar to one of the most critically acclaimed parts in the series, Chaos Theory. This portable version, however, is clunky and awkward. All of the elements you’ve come to expect are here---creeping around in the dark, silently disabling enemies, using night vision---but the controls are awkward at the best of times (the main character moves like a tank). There are compelling moments of the game where you have to be as silent as possible, or avoid using your gun altogether. The story is a typical Tom Clancy post-Cold War affair and feels unsubstantial. The game is presented fully in 3D, which is pleasing to the eye, and the graphics are good, especially for a portable game. There is no multiplayer to be found and if you’ve already played through Chaos Theory on last generation’s consoles you may want to skip out on this stealth action game.
