    The Metroid franchise seems to hold a special resonance to US reviewers and gamers.

    Was the franchise as big a hit in Europe? there doesn't seem to be half as much buzz about the new game on these shores.

    Splinter Cell review on IGN . Yes i know its a Metroid thread and you need IGN insider to view it but i couldnt resist. Basically the below

    Presentation
    The Tom Clancy realism, great voice acting and well integrated storyline will convince you that Jack Ryan's got nothing on Sam Fisher
    9.0
    Graphics
    Revolutionary. Splinter Cell has raised our expectations for what kind of lighting and animation can be done on Xbox
    10.0
    Sound
    Exeptional score and the sophisticated application of sound and music to gameplay are all kicked out in glorious 5.1.
    10.0
    Gameplay
    The definition of stealth-action.You get to do so much cool covert agent stuff in this game, enemies of the state shouldn't be allowed to play it.
    10.0
    Lasting Appeal
    Can be played multiple times with varying degrees of aggression, so it has lots of legs for a solo-only game.
    8.0
    OVERALL SCORE (not an average)
    9.6

    Lasting appeal is rubbish though, as for those people with Xbox live can get extra content (lvls, etc..)
