What Happened to the Sam Fisher I Knew and Loved?

Planet Ivy: With the newest Splinter Cell game coming out later this year it’s interesting to see how the game play has changed since its beginnings, over ten years ago. For anyone unaware of the series, Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell follows the activity of Sam Fisher, top NSA operative. So far the story has spanned seven games including the newest offering, Blacklist, which will be on sale in August this year.

One of the best game franchises ever, never got old for me

gorillabiscuits1394d ago

I don't know, I actually thought the games got weaker and they ran out of fresh ideas and the franchise is dragging now a bit..

moviewatcher1394d ago

Rubbish- I think it's one of the few series of games which has retained a level of quality even to this day

"What Happened to the Sam Fisher I Knew and Loved?"

xbox happened.......

Campy da Camper1393d ago

@movie watcher...I respectfully disagree. Chaos Theory was head and shoulders above the last installment. Even tops double agent. Some of the best mp I have ever played was spies vs merc.

moviewatcher1394d ago

Yes! I love each instalment. I still love Sam Fisher, the brute

gorillabiscuits1394d ago

ha. Is looking very tired these days..

Regardless, Tom Clancy has maintained this game series better then it has with Ghost recon!! I just hope they too don't end the same.

the hd collection is all that was good, the rest not so much.

gorillabiscuits1394d ago

I like the ideas, but generally they haven't been executed all that well

moviewatcher1394d ago

Yeah, a lot of the best of SC. I have spent too many hours on this game...

appleandroid1394d ago

@tentonsoftube- You're right, it sucked, haha. Still a great game though

e-p-ayeaH1394d ago (Edited 1394d ago )

Looking forward fro SC: Blacklist the gameplay videos show promise.

StrongMan1394d ago

Double Agent and Conviction sucked.

coolbeans1394d ago (Edited 1394d ago )

Enjoyment of Double Agent varied to me because of the difference between last-gen/this-gen versions. I like sleuthing around JBA HQ in plain clothes (360's version), but it's a shame that story-based co-op wasn't on all versions.

For Conviction: That felt like a great shot in the arm for the series (conceptually)...just executed too heavily on action imo.

Campy da Camper1393d ago

Bingo. I liked the sneaking around in double agent, too. The last one was OK but that auto take down stuff has got to go.
