Before Ubisoft’s other hit, Assassin’s Creed, players trekked the world as Third Echelon agent
Michael Ironside, uh, Sam Fisher. Now, Ubisoft is bringing the original trilogy back to gamers in the form of a trilogy package that includes HD graphics and 3D gaming. Players might also be surprised about a huge unadvertised feature in the PS3 edition of Splinter Cell Trilogy collection.
A total of three games from the previous generation will be in the collection package. The original Splinter Cell, Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow and Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory. Readers might be wondering if this port of the Splinter Cell series is a port of the PS2 version, this is not the case.
“When we started this project, one of our main goals was to provide the players with the best possible content. Hence we decided to port the game from the PC version which had more content and detail compared to the PS2 version,” said Ubisoft rep Alex Monney on PlayStation Blog.
What a relief! We were actually in a bit of shock when the original rumors broke out that the Splinter Cell Trilogy would be ported to the PS3. Let’s all take a moment to thank Ubisoft of giving gamers the best possible presentation of the game. The PS3 version of the Splinter Cell Trilogy includes:
- Graphics in HD resolution
- 3D Stereoscopic support for 3D TVs
- Trophy support
Let’s keep this our little secret: Our favorite chapter of the Splinter Cell series is Pandora Tomorrow. In it, Sam Fisher gets to travel to the jungle and wear some green camouflage sneaking suit. Yes, we liked it because his outfit looked particularly cool and reminded us of Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater. Chaos Theory was a great game too, which featured improved animation and better graphics over the previous versions. Sam also had a big knife in that one.
If you like stealth action, it’s difficult not to recommend the trilogy pack. Ubisoft will be offering the collection in both Blu-ray and individually on PSN.
What is your favorite Splinter Cell game? Is it the one where he is bald?
