Tech-Gaming writes: "In the interest of full disclosure, a declaration needs to be issued: I am a Splinter Cell fanatic. I have purchased every Sam Fisher game on release day, and feverishly played each until the final credits rolled. Embarrassingly, three of the pulpy novels have also been digested; each carefully read to glean any new intelligence on the internal workings of Third Echelon. So, when word got out that Ubisoft was shifting direction, pushing the next Splinter Cell into more action-oriented territory, I was worried. Fisher was developed with a mystique and depth absent from the archetypical Domingo Chavez / Scott Mitchell / Logan Keller variety of protagonist."
