Splinter Cell

Splinter Cell is Free This Month Thanks to Ubisoft’s 30th Anniversary

Ubisoft’s 30th anniversary continues. This time around, hop on over to the Ubisoft Club and grab yourself the original Splinter Cell – for Uplay – and then wait till next month to see what the next game is. Then repeat that for four more months.

Splinter Cell marks the second of seven games that will be offered for free in celebration of Ubisoft’s 30th anniversary; last month they gave us Prince of Persia: Sands of Time. If next month is anything like this month, then expect something from their “vault” of classics. I would assume as the months go on, perhaps newer games will be offered. We might actually get some from this decade if we’re lucky.

Not that I’m knocking either game. Splinter Cell a great, fourteen-year-old game. I remember how lauded its lighting was back in the day. That stuff seemed unreal. Of course if I went back now and played it again, I’d probably still be impressed by it.

At the very least, it’s a good opportunity to go back and see where the series began and compare it to where it is now. I’m talking purely about shadows. Just watch the evolution of shadows through the Splinter Cell franchise.
