    There is no question - Splinter Cell. Splinter Cell is "Game of the Year" quality. Enter the Matrix is below average.

    Get Splinter Cell and rent Enter the Matrix. You won't be disappointed.

    What I guess I am somewhat afraid of is the normal Tom Clancy first person action. The seemingly too fast paced movements and interface, but it looks very intriguing.

    I have both for x-box , but i would say go with splinter cell. Its a very good game. The matrix is a ok game. Its fun to play if your in the mood for some matrix action, but its not even as close to good as splinter cell

    I havent played Enter the Matrix, and probably wont, but Splinter Cell is outstanding. I played on the PC, so I had the advantage of being able to save whenever I wanted. Get Splinter Cell, you wont be sorry. It's not 1st person, BTW, it's 3rd person, and it's not a twitch fest either, a lot of it is about how well you can sneak around and not draw any attention to yourself.

    Splinter Cell is without question one of the best games I have played since Halo. Very, very good (I own the Xbox version).

    I don't own the matrix, however, as I understand it it's a pretty good game, but likely one to rent or purchase when the price drops.

    Good call on Splinter Cell. It's the absolute best combination of Thief/Thief II and the Rainbow Six series.

    Well, I decided to go give Enter the Matrix a test run on PS2 at my friends house (man his basement is so nice) and I must say, I find that very fun, but can tell you have to be in the mood post excitement of first playing it to pick up the controller again (unless for the FMVs).

    He let me play a bit of the Waterway (the part where you need the flashlight to advance [odd that it was on that part because I remember reading a post where someone didn't know where it was]) and I was doing some "phat" Focus moves. I watched until he got to Waterway 3 and then he showed me unique DOS hacking interface...very damn cool.

    Oh well fellas, I just picked Splinter Cell from my revamped Best Buy (plasmas with furniture and XBOX connected and Alienware usage sections with spiffy furniture and broadband). I will fire it up once I clean the kitchen.

    Thanks a lot buddies!

    Have both on the XBox - Splinter Cell, hands down.
