Sam Fisher makes his N-Gage debut in an enhanced port of Tom Clancy䀙s Splinter Cell for Game Boy Advance. Players must use stealth and an assortment of gadgets to find two CIA operatives missing somewhere within the Soviet republic of Georgia. Among the tools of the clandestine trade are lock picks for bypassing secured doors, night and thermal vision goggles, smoke grenades, and a silenced pistol. N-Gage exclusive features include two-player cooperative action and a sniper mode that challenges players to quickly take out hostile targets.
Fisher has a number of agile moves to help him infiltrate enemy compounds without detection. As in games like Rolling Thunder, players can duck into the background's shadowy alcoves to hide from patrolling guards. Fisher can also climb hand-over-hand across ledges or along ceilings to sneak through open windows or to avoid contact. Eleven missions are initially available, including an optional training exercise designed to familiarize players with the different techniques Fisher can perform while on assignment. ~ Scott Alan Marriott, All Game Guide
