Kyle at GameSpew: The news for more Splinter Cell is exciting, even if it is as a part of a different game entirely.
Me too, but I have high hopes Sam will make an appearance at E3 this year.
I miss you guys too.... Serious note i miss him most 😭
That's a boring stealth game. TLoU has the best stealth.
@mikeslemonade Such a weak attempt at trolling. You're not even trying anymore.
But will we get classic Splinter Cell.. the one we're missing or is it going to be some open world Splinter Cell with an emphasis on co-op play? That's the real question, I hope Ubi stays true to what made Splinter Cell great and go back to say Chaos Theory for inspiration.
Conviction and blacklist were great too though.
Me too! The first trilogy was awesome!
Chaos theory was a damn fine game...
I was concerned when Chaos Theory hit so soon after Pandora Tomorrow(it was in the same year I believe) but the moment I was on the ship my worries subsided! It really was a benchmark of what the Xbox could do because the jump in visuals from part 2 to 3 was astonishing! Also the story was awesome! More games like those would be welcome!
Hardiman Pandora Tomorrow came out in 2004 and Theory came out in 2005. Releasing two games in the same year would be overkill.
Hell yes it was, i dint try conviction yet but blacklist was pretty good also
@FantasmA thats right it wasn't the same year but twelve months apart from each other.
Blacklist was actually great as well. If you missed it, consider playing it.
I miss when Splinter Cell was mostly game play focused, too much story just doesn't fit the series. Splinter Cell and Metal Gear Solid used to compliment each other perfectly, now we dont really have either anymore.
Indeed...the good old days are long gone my friend.
He'll be at E3 for sure.
Still remember when Ubisoft had us believing this was how it was gonna look on the 360, was super hyped. Only for it to be scrapped... https://youtu.be/f04N6CXHp2...
I remember that too!
I’m pretty sure that ended up being the engine for watchdogs. The open world aspect is not what splinter cell is about. The later games were ok. Splinter cell is one of those ideas that blew its load early then to make any others just kind of became forced. Not that they were bad, but just not as memorable of an expirence.
I only miss pandora tomorrow and chaos theory.
I really liked the concept of Double Agent though. I liked all 4 of them! Those WERE my stealth games back in the day. I am trying to get into the new Hitman game because I heard that was really good.
The real king of the stealth genre.
That's Solid Snake.
okay, whatever makes you sleep at night
Yes, and Blacklist doesn't count :/ Couldn't bring myself to finish that one.
Oddly, I already miss Metal Gear Solid more :'(
Splinter Cell Chaos Theory is the best!
Wouldn't work in todays world, millennials want pay to win features that could ruin the game. Also like unrealistic features found in Hitman that ruined the game. I miss the days of having single player, multiplayer and Co op all rolled as one from SC.
Splinter cell was the benchmark in graphic when it was first come out I wish this would also
the last two were really good.
Played the Splinter Cell mission/event that's going on in Ghost Recon Wildlands, and they made a reference to Snake and when you hear Michael Ironside's delivery on how "It's just him now?" ... that definitely just gave me this great sense of nostalgia about stealth games. MGS, Splinter Cell, Syphon Filter, Tenchu, etc. These were games I remember game magazines commenting who dominated the stealth genre back then, it was a fun rivalry. Comparing those games to what we have now, it really makes me appreciate that I got to play stealth games from that time, where stealth and gameplay mechanics weren't completely copied from other games or used between games from the same company like the game engine.
me too, but the ones I miss are thr true Splinter Cell games and those were from 1 to 3.
What about a new prince of persia game? no one is talking about that. I really missed POP.
