They could make good games but they should Montreal make the SC games. Montreal's SC's are just way better

Oh ****, sorry, I read it wrong, I thought you meant UBISOFT in general, I vote no, and that UBI Montreal keeps making them. But, UBI Shanghai made some cool new features though, like the jumping, exploding, gas releasing sticky cam. And how you can pick up your air foil rounds after you shoot them, also the fast recharging OCP, and how the SC-20K has perfect accuracy, like having the foregrip on Chaos Theory, if you guys remmember the foregrip, and how it improves accuracy, well the SC-20K has that good of accuracy with the launcher attached. And the pistol just has awesome accuracy. Shanghai may make the game worse then Montreal, but they do make better gadgets and weapons. I know I was disappointed when they didn't have the fast recharging OCP and whatnot. So to me, Shanghai ain't all that bad, but I still vote no. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Too true they should never, ever, eve,r be let near another Splinter Cell game, ever!

Worst version ever!

The abomination they made for the 360 should never have been aloud to see the light of day.
Kill it, kill it, kill it now!

Well, if I'm not mistaken, the GC, PS2, and Xbox versions of SCDA were made by Ubisoft Montreal. I have the GC version (I'd like the PC version, but my PC fails to meet the rather extreme minimum requirements), and I have to say that while I enjoyed it, it's still not at the top of my SC list. The way I rank them is Chaos Theory, Splinter Cell, Double Agent, and Pandora Tomorrow. Like every SC fan, I'm sure, I replayed all 3 previous games while waiting for DA. I even played the Gamecube and PC versions of the original (I only have the PC versions of PT and CT). The Gamecube version of SC is harder if only because the controls are awful (thankfully not the case with DA).

Double Agent should have been an awesome game, but it's really not. There is a distinct lack of tension and suspense in the story, no matter how you play it. There is also a serious lack of sympathetic characters, mostly because there's no backstory to them. What is the reason for Williams' knee-jerk dislike of Third Echelon, the "Splinter Cell" program, and those most involved in it (Fisher and Lambert)? Why would he allow the president to be killed by the Red Mercury device in Nashville when he knew about it more than a day in advance? Why did Emile Dufraisne create John Brown's Army? Why would somebody from the "Deep South" found a group named after a rather violent 19th century "Yankee" abolitionist? Even Enrika, who is supposed to be a love interest, is hardly memorable. You hardly interact with her throughout the game, and there is no reason for Sam's defense of her to Williams in the last level. Except as a plot device of course. Almost every single character in the game seems to be an example of a "deus ex machina", because the whole story line in really pretty implausible.

personally, what's good about this game has never had anything to do with sam's personal life, other than the fact that he's a badass. they should've forgotten about this story and just made another badass splinter cell that didn't require Sam's daughter dying. I mean, why? Who cares? It anything, it may have provided a little humor when you have to maybe kill your friend or whatever, which by the way I laughed hysterically when Sam said "goodbye, old friend"

if i remember correctly shanghai did the first splinter cell.Anyway they didnt expect the game to be a hit but when it did become a hit they gave it to their headquarters which is montreal to do the next one.Cant say that shanghai sucks because the graphics on the game are awesome i own the pc version by the way.The main charecters reactions are deffinetly better(for example sam and enrica).but the story line and the ending seems better in the xbox,gamecube and ps2 versions so it would bu really great if the graphics and charecter motions had the pc version and the story line based on the regular versions so i think shanghai and montreal should work together next time.

srrw: Other way around. Montreal made SC1, and handed it over to Shanghai while they worked on Chaos Theory.

No I'm sure it's like this:

Splinter Cell - Montreal
Pandora Tomorrow - Shanghai
Chaos Theory - Montreal
Double Agent (Next gen) - Shanghai
Double Agent (Current gen) - Montreal

Yes the game wasn't expected to be so successful but it was Shanghai that created PT while Montreal having finished the first game set to work on CT.

I wouldnt be suprised if you are right, Pandora and Double agent were the worst two.
