don't expect a stealthy tactical shooter. it's more action oriented this time. If you don't mind that, and like fancy graphics go for it!!!

Raven shield is definately fun because of your own team's AI. You can give them plenty of orders.

Relatively speaking it gave me the same feeling has swat 3, just another shooter but with kickass friendly AI.

Splinter cell however... well, not my style. I played the demo and got bored with it before fininshing it.

Played the demo?

Personally, I think it's worth having based on that. As you mentioned, the graphics are lush.

The game is much more action oriented. You have four "blocks" of health and getting shot may or may not remove one depending on what weapon you're shot with.

You've only got the one squad and you lead them rather than setting WP's (although TBH, I played the PC game with two squads and I sort of leapfrogged them through the level. WP's just seem to get you killed).

Each of the weapons now comes with a special by default. You can look through the reflex sights (which I guess replace the "mini-scopes").

Not sure about the headset. Depends how much of a tit you'll feel sitting there shouting "Breach, bang and clear on zulu" at your TV. I found the headset for SOCOM added to the immersion no end, but a mate of mine never used it because he found the concept embarassing.

If I saw someone doing that, I would have to laugh, really hard lol. :D

Speaking of RvS, what about the expansion pack for PC, Athena something?

Why not just rent it, and see if it's worth it? Cost alot less then buy'n it and finding it's not what you wanted.

Since I don't own an XBox, no, I won't be buying the new RS. The serie sucks pretty bad anyway. :p
