Hello everyone!

I'm a huge Splinter Cell fan and it's such a shame that Pandora Tomorrow is unable to be played on modern PCs.

I always wanted to play the game, never did as a teenager, and recently I was able to fulfill this lifelong wish and I built two machines to compare the game side by side. Compared to the original Splinter Cell, which is a little bit broken on new machines, Pandora Tomorrow is full of missing Lights and Shadows. I believe in the first level alone there are over 50 instances of visual differences.

Here is the video, enjoy:

I also started a "Let's Play Perdiod Correct" video series starting with this game. I've played the first four missions. They are all played on a GeForce 7800 GTX at 1600 x 1200 resolution. Proper authentic 4:3 aspect ratio and rendered in 4K too.

The game is gorgeous and really good. You can see how Splinter Cell transitioned to Chaos Theory.

We obviously don't know each other and I'm probably late at the party, but I wanted to thank you for these videos and your dedication. I've just learned there's a great fix in development for Pandora Tomorrow that restores most of the broken lighting effects. Hopefully, we will enjoy again this great game in all its glory.
According to me, It's people like you who represent the best part of the video gamers enthusiasts and the PC community. I find it sad that no one cared to reply before and I just wanted to let you know that your efforts didn't go unnoticed.
Cheers.

Thank you for the kind words :)

I've recently tried out Komat's Wrapper, and it's awesome! How cool is it to play this awesome game on modern computers. Such a shame that Ubisoft didn't patch this themselves.
