Who requested "All Star" for a Rock Band download? Please, take it back...

I bought Splinter Cell, and after playing the demo and watching all the videos and stuff, I don't know why. I knew it wasn't gonna be traditional Splinter Cell. I knew the online was gonna be less traditional Splinter Cell, and more along the lines of Metal Gear Online. But I bought it anyway because I'm a fan of the franchise. I've gotta say, I'm regretting it. They've alienated me here. It feels like a game that doesn't know what it wants to be. They give you the option of taking a stealth approach or taking everyone out, and my issue is that neither mechanic feels fully realized. The presentation is great, but the story is cheese. The graphics are slick, but nothing revolutionary. The voice acting is downright awkward at times. I just can't help but kick myself for buying it when I knew what I was getting myself into. I guess I had my Sam Fisher-loving blinders on. And now I can't play Pandora Tomorrow online anymore, since the original Xbox Live servers went offline last night. Balls. Buyer beware, here. If the first three (and to a smaller extent, four) Splinter Cells were too hardcore and niche for you, then maybe this is your thing. Otherwise... rent it first.
