    Splinter Cell is not realistic. But it was amazingly good fun [img]/i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif[/img] . Im not usually a big single player fan but im a big Tom Clancy fan as well as Jimmy Bond fan too so I was well impressed with Splinter Cell. But it aint realistic, real life spook work is far more mundane and usually involves bugging places using safer methods (firearms not usually required) (an example was when a building next door to the old Soviet Embassy was being renovated, a team used the cover as workmen and worked all night to drill a tiny hole into the Soviet Embassy wall to emplace a microphone). As for work in more hostile enviroments groups like the SAS and the Navy Seals perform CTR's (close target recces) to drop off intermediate recce equipment. The final nail in the realism coffin is the fact that the Department responsible for the Splinter Cell is the NSA, a group whose task is moniter electronic transmissions such as radio and radar as well as the telephone networks and the internet.

    So please enjoy the game for what it is, a challenging game with great atmosphere and cool gadgets, not for what you think it is. [img]/i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif[/img]

    Enjoy

    (PS im here from the other forums as I just got the email about PT, so far it looks really good, cant wait to suit up with a couple of mates and do some wet work)

    Who hell wants a ultra realistic game? A game being governed by absolute realism would be stupid and completely boring.

    For the most part, we play games to *gasp* escape realism

    You know I've been saying that for a while. If you were really to play a "realistic" spy game you'd probably have Sam Fisher sitting in an Ice Cream truck listening to wire taps for 16 hours. Not very exciting.

    Take it at face value. It is after all a video game.
