GR: "By trimming the fat, Ubisoft takes Splinter Cell back to its roots in sandbox stealth play and globe-trotting espionage."
Glad to hear it.
Agreed. I liked Conviction but it seemed kind of held back by the story/Sam Fisher's age.
Out with the old. In with the new.
Crazy how little buzz there is for Splinter Cell. There was once a time when it was a AAA release and people went nuts for it. Shame that a series can fall so far from the top.
It didn't help that the last game was exclusive to Xbox 360.
actually it was on pc as well and it was much better on pc, way better visuals, ZERO jaggies, 60 frames per second, no awful textures, no ugly screen tearing, better/more control options (splinter cell games play better with kb/m, can access all gadgets with the touch of a button over fumbling through menus) just like this one is going to destroy the console versions on pc
Seems like Saints Row 4 is getting more pre-release attention.
I didn't even realize that this was coming so soon! I thought it was further away. Like others are saying, sad the amount of pre-release attention that is being diverted from it. Seems like it will be a good game.
People getting too attached to a voice actor? You don't say.
No offense, and I'm sure Blacklist is great (I'll be buying it today), but, after watching some gameplay vids, Ubisoft has in no way taken Splinter Cell "back to its roots." >_< Admittedly, I am a little bummed that Ironside isn't the voice actor for Fisher anymore considering he played the part perfectly. However, it looks like Ubisoft has done an excellent job with this latest title. Can't wait to play it!
