    If it has co-op like Conviction, then I'm in. Had a good play through of that with Fruit which was hilarity the entire way.

    I enjoyed Conviction, but this seems again more action orientated judging by the demo and there's no Michael Ironside!

    I'm a bit gutted that they've gone even further away from the stealth, but I have to admit I thought the trailers looked awesome.

    Do we know if its multiplat, or xbox exclusive like Conviction?

    Its not gonna be the same without Michael Ironside.
    I reckon they should of had someone else as the protagonist. Kestrel or Archer would of done.
    Obviously will still be getting it!

    I loved Conviction, but this was a majorly off-putting demonstration.

    I dunno, I just think it was a pre recorded video. The execute ability looked very similar to conviction imo, but maybe I'm remembering incorrectly.

    No Michael Ironside is, however, shit. Why decide to change that after all this time?

    Isn't he like 80? He barely managed to grumble his way through Conviction.

    Because it's a prequel, and they needed someone that sounded a bit younger?

    A reboot is probably on the cards next gen. Not like the story is anything worthy in Tom Clancy land. Don't mind Ironside getting the boot, fair enough reason being mocapped or whatever.

    I suppose many publishers will be doing this next gen with tired franchises forced into the COD/3rd Person beige shooter barrel. The PR will write itself, IP going back to it's routes, this is for the long life fans. Timed well enough for early next gen console buyers. I'm looking on the bright side now.

    Conviction was limited but still fun at times. I'm a little torn. It's disappointing to see that direction again as it's dull once you've done it once but probably worth a go in Blacklist.

    I like sams new voice personally. It sounded ridiculous with ironside and didn't suit the look of the character.

    not enough to keep it 360 exclusive though.
    That's got nothing to do with anything.

    According to Amazon this is out on 29th March 2013. That's ages away :-(

    In the e3 demo they didn't mention this being a prequel and said that sam was now in charge of 3rd echelon. So my guess its set after conviction thus sam is even older.

    This reminds me of the announcement of Splinter Cell Conviction, it was meant to be released a long while ago, but they decided to change the scenario, which i found in the trailers pretty akward, the original scneraio could've worked very well. Not mentionning the "Microsoft" exclusive release, and the delayed PC inferior graphics.

    I hope they will made their mind up and not do any significant changes in the developpement process.

    What i realy started to hate about this game is considering muslims as terrorists, first COD and now this? Come on!

    La cerise sur le gâteau!

    Has this been given an overhaul similar to Borderlands did? Just looks like it has a graphic comic edge to it now in this trailer.

    New trailer

    Probably been playing too much. But looks like there is a twang to it. Nothing major. Noticeable from 20 seconds on. Could just be the way it's playing on the iPad.

    Just seems so wrong and weird. Think it may be time to let Splinter Cell go. America fuck yeah, break every rule, it's badass, we are good so it makes it all okay. Ubisoft, you still suck at presentation. A mission briefing screen would be a relief over those cut scenes.
