“Pandora Tomorrow” is one of the most interesting and enchanting video game play delivered in the Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell series. The game was originally titled as the “Shadow Strike” and was later renamed as “Pandora Tomorrow”. The game is an external player oriented “Stealth-based” video game that has already gained popularity. This game is the second in the series of video games of Splinter Cell.
What the game provides
As in case of other games in the Splinter Cell series, here also the hero is Sam Fisher, the lone splinter from Third Echelon. Voiced by popular TV artist Michael Ironside, the character Sam Fisher works for the black – ops branch of NSA and indulge in covert activities in the line of a James Bond. The background music is provided in the video game by Lalo Schifrin and the popularity of the game is quite evident from the fact that it has been translated in multiple languages and distributed all over the world.
The game play
Although the name has been changed, the game play remains nearest to the original Splinter Cell game. A few graphical improvements have been inserted here and there. Minute game play changes have been affected too. For example the collectible health kits are no longer an inventory item. Another such example of minor game play change is the addition of a laser sight to the pistol that Sam carries. Sam Fisher can now open a door while carrying a body on his back. He can shoot hanging in a reverse pose and can also perform a jump that is half split.
The multiplayer version
Originally the “Pandora Tomorrow” was a single player game. But one notable change has been introduced lately by converting it to a multi player game because it can accrue the advantages provided by the popular Xbox Live device. Even the Play Station 2 and Personal Computer versions have also been made multiplayer compatible. But the Game Cube version continues to be a single player one. The two combatants in the fray are very well equipped and armed mercenaries against stealthy Shadownet spies. Mercenaries are played as first person and spies are played as third person. The charm of the game is that mercenaries have fast shooting power but spies can hide in the dark and attack with stealthy moves. In some cases they may just sneak past the mercenaries. The maximum number of players that can participate in a multi player game is limited to four players. There are three versions of multiplayer game in “Pandora Tomorrow”. The first one is “Neutrilization” in which the spy tries to deactivate the devices and mercenaries try to protect it. The second one is “Extraction” where the spy tries to locate the ND133s and mercenaries try to protect it killing the spies. The third and last one is the “Sabotage” where a modem is to be placed near the wall where the ND 133s are located that would neutralize the device when the timer on the modem stops. Spies try to place the mode, and mercenaries try to prevent it by killing the spies.
Finally, we may have a brief glimpse of the story on which the game is based. The curtain raises at Indonesia 2006 where the militant leaders Darah Dan Doa and Suhadi Sadono have planned a suicide bombing of the U.S military base. The task of Sam Fisher is here in two phases, first infiltrating U.S Embassy and retaking it by Delta Force and then tracking down Sadono in Indonesian soil. Fisher finally finds Sadono and the bomb and Shadownet spies are deputed to neutralize it and catch Sadono alive. Fisher succeeds but is entrusted a further assignment to trace and eliminate Norman Soth, a CIA defector. How? You will know by playing the “Pandora Tomorrow” yourself.
