Naked Gun Redux

So I'm just about done w/ solo play in Splinter Cell. It's a short game and fairly entertaining. It's nowhere near as good as I'd hoped it would be, though.

I was chatting with Brandon this morning and the best comparison I can make is that solo play in this game is like The Naked Gun.

Remember the scene in NG when Frank Drebin is firing from behind a wooden crate and then the camera pans out and you see the criminal he is shooting at -- is also behind a crate but only like 2 feet from Drebin?

That's SC: Conviction. Only in the movie it was hilarious. The game takes itself seriously.
