I'm buying the game anyway, despite not being able to play it (not having a PS3.0 card etc.) since i'm a fanboy of the series and don't want it to see the rapid depreciation that Chaos Theory suffered.

What confuses me is the whole PS 3.0 only rubbish. Include both the new engine and the old one which is still powering the vanilla Xbox version (hell, really make use of the DVD format) and give us people who aren't buying a new computer because we are waiting for Vista/DX10 a chance to play.

Funny it gets better, isn't Tom Clancy extremely dissatisfied at how the games are portrayed?

Maybe, it was like he wanted a game crafted about John Clark's little brother (don't know if he has a sibling or not, but the similarities between Clark/Fisher are numerous). But then I would have trouble seeing how he could justify it, his last couple of books in the Ryanverse were almost as bad as far as believability in plots and conventions went.

Either way, I saw this was released for Xbox so I might pick it up for that. Yeah, not as pretty, but...$50 (or less) vs. $60.

Is this a new engine? Or the same one as the first? Does it support advanced shaders 3.0 etc?

Yes, and yes. Unreal 3 engine, and SM 3.0 is required (ATI x1300/x1600/x1800/etc, or Nvidia 6xxx/7xxx series required)

Chaos Theory was better than both. I'm hoping Double Agent will be better than Chaos Theory, but given that DA is developed by Ubisoft Shanghai (same one who made Pandora Tomorrow), I have my doubts.

Totally agree, and I had my doubts as well, but so far I'm enjoying the 360 version at least as much as CT. If it keeps on at this rate, it may even surpass that one.. have to finish it before I'll know for sure, but it's really great game.

I agree. Pandora Tomorrow is my least favourite SC based on the fact that it is more gung-ho and run&gun than the original.

One of the rare franchises where each sequel actually gets better.

I'd say that the first Splinter Cell was definitely better than Panda Tomorrow, though Chaos Theory was better than both. I'm hoping Double Agent will be better than Chaos Theory, but given that DA is developed by Ubisoft Shanghai (same one who made Pandora Tomorrow), I have my doubts.

I think I read in the PC system reqs that you NEED to have a shader 3.0 card. The requirements are pretty steep that's why I bought it for the xbox 360.

The graphics really look sweet. Is this a new engine? Or the same one as the first? Does it support advanced shaders 3.0 etc?

Last one I tried was the original Splinter Cell.
