Meh... I will try it when it is available to everybody... but I don't have my hopes up much... I know it is just a slightly updated PT engine for the SVM part and I know the PT engine sucks (at least for SVM).

Wow, They changed the controls, For the worste in my opinion. Your movement speed is nolonger anolog, its now a toggel, walk or run... You no longer roll with crouch but now with the action key...

So far its eh, but that was the tutorial (which could use a big facelift) gonna try some MP action, I will post some screens and opinions after it.

I've been reading some of the responses on the official forums, and 99% of them are not good... apparantly, the Splinter Cell Multiplayer, and Singplayer are 2 entirely different engines. I dunno why they did this.

Well the Coop portion of the multiplayer is on the Chaos Theory engine as far as I know... but the Spy vs. Merc MP portion is a "slightly updated" version of the Pandora Tomorrow engine. Which pisses me off because the PT engine has terrible EVERYTHING (the netcode is so freaking terrible). The singleplayer and coop portions are what I am REALLY waiting for.

EDIT: Oh... and in Pandora Tomorrow the roll WAS a key also... but only in the multiplayer part. So that isn't a change. But yeah I heard about the walk/run toggle and I HATE it.

Eh? What was so bad about the PT engine? I though it worked just fine, and aside from lag on my dial-up when I had my mic plugged in I didn't see any problems with the netcode.
