Default Did Ubisoft screw up splinter cell?

I loved the first three, but Double Agent and the upcoming Conviction aren't really striking a good chord with me. Sam used to be a secret agent, sneaking into facilities in the dark and taking out the bad guys, but now they've gone with the whole "good guy gone bad/fugitive on the run" approach and I think it ruined the series. Perhaps if they make the next game (after Conviction) more like the older ones I'll buy it, but I think Ubi's lost the whole essence of the series. What does everyone else think?

I have to agree with you. I absolutely loved the first three, especially 1 and 3. Double Agent was piss poor for a Splinter Cell game IMO. I was sooo excited to play it and then I ended up being completely let down. Personally I think I am doen wiht the Splinter Cell franchise. It has taken way too big of a departure from it's roots. It would be like turning Halo into a run and gun shooter into a stealth MGS style game, it just doesn't work. Give us back the Sam Fisher we used to know.

agreed. i couldn't get into double agent as much as i was into the original ones, something about it just didn't jive with the sam fisher and splinter cell that i obsessed over on the xbox1.

i'm very leery of what they're doing with conviction.
