Raymond: 'Complexity' holds back Splinter Cell popularity, "really is a thinking game"

This is just another excuse to down dumb the franchise even more

Wow I always thought Ms. Raymond was smarter than to say something this dumb.

I'm sorry what?! the whole reason people starting bitching and the reason it became less popular than it used to be is because the series has been severely dumbed down FROM a thinking mans game to more of an action TPS

I wonder what the sales will do now that they are back to basics.

I don't care about this franchise without Ironsides voice. He is Sam Fischer. Boycott this game, I would rather they end any series then throw new voices which are not identified to the main character. Same with Masterchief, Kratos, etc. end series and start a new game in the same universe.

You want them to end the entire series and reboot it or whatever because one voice actor left? You're delusional my friend.
