April has been an expensive month for me, and here's why:

Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory
On the Xbox, it's a beautiful game, the boys(girls) at UbiSoft certainly know how to push the Xbox to the max in the graphics department. While I have only played a little, single player is the same, high-quality stealth action it has always been with a little more reliance on the player to figure out exactly how they want to approach a certain situation, because there are multiple, perfectly capable ways of dealing with any situation in the game.

Multiplayer is enjoyable, the versus is an updated version from Splinter Cell: Pandora tomorrow. It's the best cat & mouse game available, and a refreshing break from Halo 2 Team Deathmatch. The co-op has to be played to be believed. Watching your teammate slink out of the shadows to grab a terrorist from behind is an experience like no other.

Now all I need is LameAim to actually respond to me when he's online, and for MosBen to actually buy the game.
