    It is very good, BUT I like a bit more action, and although Stealth is flavour of the day, you cannot beat a bit of all out killin'!!!

    Thats why you should check out Dead To Rights!!!

    Splinter Cell is very good though, but for me I have to be in a certain mood to play a game like that!

    Snap - i have to be in the right mood - as if im not i tend to run out of bullets very quickly :)

    Graphics are great though. And it looks like a great game - if a bit frustating in places - trying to find where you have to go - nicely hidden exits out of places - was wandering around for about 1 hour in a court yard last nite till i found the way out.

    I must admit my cube is gathering dust sine Mario Sunshine was done!!! Just waiting for Metroid now!!!

    At the mo PS2 is getting most attention with The Getaway.

    The amount of time spent on each console depends on the games I am playing!!

    The joys of having all 3!!!

    Birds House - Her dad has PS2

    So not tooooooooooo bad, may do a meet and greet smile at the cack DVD mum bought, and wear the lovely sweater, and laugh at the 'comedy' present and then slope off!!!!

    Then off to bird's parents where I slowly get drunk and play Evo soccer with her dad!!! Who will be mashed!!!

    really didnt get on with winback at all.

    as far as splinter cell goes, absolutly top game, if it keeps the same silly grin on my face all the way through to the end it may have to knock a title off my top 10 in the other post on here.

    I really think it is that good.

    at the moment i am in the cia building, just gone through the janitors' office down into a store room where 2 blokes are counting stock, however as i walk down the stairs the guy who talks to you over your comms link warns that one more alarm and the mission is over, as soon as i grab one of the guards ( and i do this without him seeing me, and can't creep past ) an alarm goes off and it is mission over ????

    tried it about 20 times last might and can't work out any other way to do it , any ideas ??

    is that where you go down the hall with the camera at the end & the stairs to the right of the camera.if so go up the stairs then run back down the guard runs down after you so hide under the stairs then jump out crack the t**t then if the other 1 comes down do the same.

    yeah basicaly you have to creep up on every guard on that level and take them out, a couple of them have data sticks on them with keypad codes so you have no choice but to take them out.

    Sounds to me like you forgot to hide a body. Turn around and go back over the level. You'll probably find a guard in a room or a body that's in the light somewhere.
    It took me hours to get past this bit too. I went back and found a guard hiding in a room (near a Coke machine if I recall)

    When you do get to the bit with the two stock takers, run past the first one and go for the second guy. He runs to an alarm button very close to him. The one you run past will go up the stairs and hide like a girl!



    Oh, Best game I''ve ever played BTW.
    It's like the first time I play Super Mario 64.

    No worries Mr Pool, as I said, with Game as long as you swap it for another title they do not mind, just do not ask for cash or vouchers!!!

    Greenthumb,

    Basically your best bet is to activate both the sentry guns and make sure you disable IFF. Then run down the middle to the wall nearest the left hand entrance and pick off the guys as they come around the corner. You should be in shadow if you're in the right place. There's 3 in the first group who throw the grenades. Wait 10 secs and 2 more mercenaries come around the corner. Make sure you pick off the guy furthest away as he's the one who lobs a grenade into the soldiers room and kills them. After you through there, head over to the far right corner of the room where the shelves are and pick up the ammo if you haven't already. Either lob a couple of grenades out the middle door to kill the guy or wait untill he makes his way up to your position at the far right door....then simply fill him full of hot lead!

    Does the game come with a decent tutorial level ? I remember everyone raving about Hidden & Dangerous and I never got into that as there was zero training and a crap manual. Bah.

    The tutorial level is fantastic. It covers everything you'll need to do in the game itself including advanced moves such as the split jump. It does however leave enough for you to discover on your own like silent landings, gadgets etc.
