Released in 2005 for PC, Xbox, PS2, GameCube, DS, N-Gage and Mobile, Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory or SCCT in short is the third game in the Splinter Cell series and is probably the best in the series. Well at least in my opinion. Taking the things that made the first and second game good and improved it. It's also the first in the series to feature ragdoll physics.

And it's also the last game before Sam Fisher started channeling Jack Bauer and it's shift from stealth to more action.

As the other games in the series it's a stealth game. With a Tom Clancy style story. With all that comes with it. We will once again take the role as Sam Fisher (voiced by the ever so awesome Michael Ironside) as he travels the world to deal with terrorists and it's ilk.

It's so far the only Splinter Cell game that features a Coop campaign for two players that runs parallel to the main campaign and intersects with the actual game at one part.

Now SCCT came with a lot of improvements over the first two games. Including one very particular one.

Is it the 5-7 SC Pistol with the new Optically Channeled Potentiator (OCP) that can disable electronics for a short duration?

Is it the SC-20K rifle with a new multitude of attachments such as foregrip for increased stability, a non-lethal weapon launcher, an undermount shotgun and a 20mm Sniper attachment?

Is it the expanded set of moves Sam can do that includes such things as chocking or breaking peoples necks while hanging upside down, or the attacks that instantly disable enemies regarding of direction?

The greatest addition to the game is:
The Knife
But what can this knife do?

It can slice!

It can cut!

It's very handy. (Although the other additions are pretty neat as well.)

The LP will be a non-lethal run through mainly, with alternate paths and methods shown as well whenever possible.

Hey, also remember to check out Erenthal's LP of the first Splinter Cell game.
And also check out his LP of the sequel Pandoras Tomorrow.
