It might take some time to adjust but a new Splinter Cell with a new Sam Fisher is just as good, if not better, than some of its predecessors. CanadianBoarder over at COG takes a look and gives his impressions.
"Ok, wait just a second here. You expect me to play a Splinter Cell game where Sam Fisher isn’t played by Michael Ironside? Yeah, that’s not going to happen.
Those were the immediate thoughts that ran through my head when it was announced that Mr. Ironside felt like he was too old to keep up as Splinter Cell’s main protagonist in Blacklist, the newest game in this storied franchise. In my eyes it was like replacing the lead singer of a well-known band. We know that often times that scenario just doesn’t work out. I mean let’s be serious for a second, who actually likes Sammy Hagar before David Lee Roth? NOBODY, that’s who. Kids, if you don’t know who I’m talking about feel free to fire up Wikipedia."
