I'm definitely a fan of the Splinter Cell series - which has been in direct competition with other stealth-approach games/series e.g. Metal Gear Solid, Hitman, etc. & loved the last game (Splinter Cell: Double Agent) so my expectations are reasonably high for this next game.
The press & previews that I saw for this game were good enough to make me buy the game on the release date (literally as soon as they put it on the shelves!) & I'm having my first run-through this weekend.
