Splinter Cell: Blacklist Announced

Microsoft took the lid off of Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Blacklist during its E3 presentation, with Alex Parizeau and Maxime Beland of Ubisoft showing off the next installment in the stealth/action series. They show Sam's enhanced command role in the next game and some of its international plotline. The command functions made use of Kinect, and a PC version of the game is not confirmed at this point. In conclusion they say: "Splinter Cell: Blacklist is the most ambitious Splinter Cell yet. It features compelling single-player, co-op, and of course, spy versus mercs. Shipping spring 2013."

As a splinter cell fan I get more depressed with each release. The first 3 were the pinnacle of being an operative. The objective was not to be seen, and you get heavily penalized if caught. That's not what I miss the most though. I miss the classic Sam Fisher character. His banter with Grimsdottir and Lambert made for some really good dialogue and his humorous yet cheesy dialogue. Now he's just another generic pissed off rogue agent. Why is he killing all the bad guys? I remember in the first three Sam was against killing, unless it was a last resort. Now it's the complete opposite.

Memorable settings and enemies from the first 3 replaced by generic middle eastern settings.

Also whatever happened to continuity. I remember Sam Fisher being in his twilight years in the first 3 game, with grey hair and slow movement. Sam Fisher was slow, to match his old age. He wasn't some Jason Bourne bullshit knockoff that he is now. Sam Fisher used to be one of my favorite game characters. Can't say the same now.

And no Michael Ironside...need I go on?

Yep, my thoughts exactly. Can't beat the original ones.

Similar things can be said about Resident Evil for me too. The first three were awesome, but after that they went in a direction I don't agree with at all.
