Hitman Episode 2: Sapienza

Hitman Episode 2: Sapienza builds on the first episode in just about every way. The dense multi-layered map, creative assassination opportunities, and an overall better performance makes this easily the best episode of the two so far.

Hitman Episode 1: Paris

Killing hasn't been this fun since Blood Money. Despite the technical issues, Hitman is off to a promising start to the "season". The smooth controls, beautiful visuals, and incredibly detailed level design does a solid job in bringing the world's deadliest assassin to current generation consoles.

The Marvellous Miss Take

The Marvellous Miss Take is a fun and near flawless heist adventure. The visuals, soundtrack and simple controls are the healthiest elements of the game. The only thing holding it back is the game’s often crippling difficulty and the feeling of being put up against impossible odds. You’ll bang your head against the wall a few times but the real key to success is to not play angry. A measured approach and a careful step are needed to guide Sofia Take towards artwork yearning to be free.

Thief

It’s impossible to look at Thief and not compare it to Dishonored (which is heavily inspired by the original Thief games), Deus Ex Human Revolution, and of course the original series. As reboot, it does everything it needs to, to bring the core mechanics to 2014. As Eidos Montreal’s second game, it shows that the studio learned much in the process of making Human Revolution (especially in regards to boss battles). But as a game on its own, Thief a fantastic ride and great game in which to merely be a thief in. It’s just a shame that it exists in such an uninteresting and disjointed world.

Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Blacklist

Splinter Cell Blacklist is a good game. Actually it's a great game. The action is tight, the missions are fun and customization is deep and varied.

Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Chaos Theory

Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory when looked at, as a whole is just an average stealth game on the PS2. It suffers from frame rate problems and just doesn’t offer as much as we all would have hoped. If you don’t own an Xbox but still are a fan of the series, you will still enjoy this game for the PS2. Just don’t expect all the nice extras that you get form the Xbox version.

Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory is by far the best game that the series has produced, which is not an easy task. The game just combines both great single and multiplayer experience, which really makes your $50, go along way. If you’re a fan of the series I really think this is a must have and I can guarantee you, you won’t be disappointed.

Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell

After months of rumors regarding the quality of this port or how well it would be handled, it’s great to see that it turned out to be a very good product. While this may not live up to the quality of the Xbox version, it’s perfectly suitable for those who were simply hoping for a good PS2 version. The game itself is not perfect and there are some unfortunate design quirks, but it’s innovations such as the optic cable and reliance on stealth and realism make it a terrific addition to the library of any stealth action fan.
