E3 2009: Sam Fisher’s gone rogue
Yesterday at the Microsoft press conference and later at Ubisoft’s, shall we say, LESS entertaining press conference, new Splinter Cell Conviction gameplay was demoed. Now we at GodisaGeek love the Splinter Cell franchise but as of late it has probably reached a point where it needed something fresh to reinvigorate the series as we are now reaching the fourth installment. So Sam Fisher is back ladies and gentleman and he certainly has changed a bit, personality wise anyway. No more fun loving, quip dispensing, law abiding Sam (ok so maybe he was never fun loving but you get the idea). His daughter has been murdered and in typical fashion he sets off on a brutal mission to find out who is to blame. The video you see below can also be found on XBL Marketplace and there is an extended version too at SplinterCell.com but here it is right now for your viewing pleasure.
