Among the many big releases due here in 2013 is the return of Sam Fisher.  The last game in the franchise was a revelation, a brilliant jump forward in design and tactics that helped keep the stealth/action genre fresh, and more importantly, fun.  Splinter Cell: Blacklist looks to build on that success with some new tricks and with Sam Fisher back where he belongs…sort of.  I’m still mourning the loss of Michael Ironside as the voice of Fisher; I just don’t know if I’ll be able to adjust.  On the plus side, it looks like there will be plenty of action to go along with the stealth, as like the last game hinted at, it looks as those two will be much more intertwined.  Take a look at the new trailer and share what you think in the comments below.
