EGM: "To this day, I consider the 2002 original and it’s 2004 follow-up, Pandora Tomorrow, to be the two greatest stealth games ever made.
It should come as no surprise, then, that I was a little flustered by the E3 announcement of Splinter Cell: Blacklist and its debut gameplay footage. Why is Sam Fisher killing everyone in sight? Why doesn’t he sound like Michael Ironside? Did he just call in an airstrike?
That being said, first impressions aren’t everything, and I was excited to go hands-on with Blacklist and discover if those apprehensions would melt away once I’d walked an incredibly quiet mile in Sam’s shoes."
