• Combining the sleek black of the 8GB Microsoft Xbox console with the black-ops action of Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow, the Microsoft Xbox Espionage Pack is an excellent choice for fans of stealth gaming. The original edition of Microsoft’s game consoles, best known as the platform for Halo, the Xbox packed a number of powerful features into its striking case with front-loading disc tray and four controller ports (which can be accessorized for wireless controllers). Around the time of its release in 2001, the Xbox was noted for having the internal processing power of a PC, with a 733MHz Intel processor, 64MB of RAM, and a custom Nvidia graphics board called the NV2A. It was designed for compatibility with both standard type 4:3 TVs and HD-ready sets, offering 480p, 720p, and 1080i output signals in normal and widescreen aspect ratios. The Xbox also supports 5.1 Dolby Digital surround sound, along with 256 voice channels, for an immersive gameplay experience. The built-in 8GB hard drive is ample for saving games, while Xbox memory cards are also available to share data between consoles. The 8GB hard drive also goes a long way toward boosting load times and storing cache levels from games so the system is not entirely dependent on game disc information. The 8GB hard drive can also be used for data storage of other kinds, including music copied directly from CDs, making the Microsoft Xbox an all-round entertainment system and not just a gaming console. Bundled with the black Xbox console, Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow makes great use of the console’s features and functionality. In this espionage classic, which was better received on the Xbox than on any other console, players assume the role of Sam Fisher to search for information on and help tackle CIA-trained guerilla Indonesian militia leader Suhadi Sadono. Fans of the original Splinter Cell appreciated the return of many integral gameplay mechanics, with stealth and infiltration being a central focus. In Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow, players use the controller to dictate some of the tiniest movements of Sam Fisher, shifting his weight to prepare for specialist maneuvers, such as split jumping between walls or whistling to attract enemies. The game also benefits from new moves like spinning from the shadows to silently murder enemies, who have been given an AI overhaul to make them more intelligent and reactive than before. All of this translates into a more realistic and more challenging black-ops simulation. Several other improvements from the first game include static health kits, binoculars, better lighting, and alarms that can be set off during play without automatically failing the mission. Other new features in Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow include secondary weapon functions that can be equipped during missions, such as the laser sight. The game takes place across a varied range of exciting levels, including jungles, rooftops, and the outside of a moving train as well as several different countries, jetting between East Timor, France, Israel, Indonesia, and the United States. Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow was the first installment in the Splinter Cell video game franchise to feature a Microsoft Xbox Live multiplayer mode, which was based on the single player game, to position players as either SHADOWNET spies or ARGUS mercenaries. The game has an ESRB Teen rating. For fans of stealth games, the black Microsoft Xbox 8GB Espionage Pack with Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow is an excellent choice that features plenty of all-new content and gameplay improvements right out of the box.
