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. (Industry, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

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

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..
moviewatcher  +   514d ago
Rubbish- I think it's one of the few series of games which has retained a level of quality even to this day

@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.
moviewatcher  +   514d ago
Yes! I love each instalment. I still love Sam Fisher, the brute

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.
gorillabiscuits  +   514d ago
I like the ideas, but generally they haven't been executed all that well
NastyLeftHook0  +   514d ago
the menu sucked
moviewatcher  +   514d ago
Yeah, a lot of the best of SC. I have spent too many hours on this game...
appleandroid  +   514d ago
@tentonsoftube- You're right, it sucked, haha. Still a great game though

Double Agent and Conviction sucked.
coolbeans  +   514d 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.

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.
MilkMan  +   514d ago
Game series is excellent. Sp had to change with the times like all living things. Its evolved over the years to adapt to market changes. Thats why we keep the older ones, in case we want to go backwards and relive those experiences.
Cant wait for the next one, although I WILL be missing "The Voice" Michael Ironside.

Ubisoft made him into another typical guns blazing junkie

S-T-F-U  +   514d ago
The series died to me after Chaos Theory. They just don't make them like they used to...it sucks getting old :(

Hopefully he learned that you can't be too stealthy while wearing bright green flourescent goggles.

The creators of Sam Fisher disregarded the term ''If it ain't broke, don't fix it''.
