Pandora Tomorrow Today

Pandora Tomorrow Today

When I'm not playing Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance 2 with Mrs. Lock, I'm fighting for control of the Xbox to load up another game title passion of mine, Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow aka Splinter Cell 2.

This past weekend I got quite a bit of playing time where I met up online (via Xbox Live for those in-the-know) with a fellow friend and we really got to know the multiplayer aspect of the game very well.

Here are a couple of things we noticed:

As the spy, if you use your dark vision goggles and the mercenary that's hunting you is using his EM vision goggles (the blueish-white facemask), you light up like a snowy Christmas tree.

The merc has the advantage on a smaller map. The spy has the advantage on a larger map.

The opposing team can not see your laser guided scope beam, only a little red dot on the surface you have it pointed at.

Getting the merc into a choke hold is a very difficult thing to do therefore requires a lot of practice.

More as we continue to scrimmage and get better...
