So, Sam Fisher's latest title has been out since what... August last year and there were no threads about it here? I just finished it yesterday on the PS3. What a GREAT game! If you're a fan of political suspense and stealth action, this won't ever let you down. Well, I'm a big fan of the series, having played all the 5 prior games. It surprised me that they took almost 4 years to release this as a sequel to Conviction, and yet change so little of the gameplay mechanics. What they did change (for the worse I might add) was the voice actor for Sam Fisher. Michael Ironside is one of the best voices in the history of videogames, but they changed him for some other guy! If you're a loyal fan of the series, you will miss the old Sam Fisher voice. Another significant change is letting you control Sam in between missions, in what is highly reminiscent of Assassin's Creed when Desmond is out of the Animus. But this part of the game is kinda pointless IMO, because everything you can do inside the Palladin plane could be done in a menu. It just adds a bit of atmosphere I guess. I'm not sure I liked the way you get to do upgrades on guns, gadgets and body armour. There is this flawed 'economy system' where you get money for in-game kills, moves and stuff... it's an 'RPG' element that is a bit annoying. This is just dumb and should be revamped for the next game. Although it has these resemblances with AC games, it resembles in nothing that old open world boredom. This game is breath taking from beginning to end and those who don't know it should give it a go. Multiplayer looks fun too. Played it yesterday for the first time and had some fun on Spys vs. Mercs mode. There are Coop missions too, which I hope to be playing soon.
