As this is the third time we've got behind Splinter Cell's wheel, it was going to take something jaw-dropping to get our attention.

Sam Fisher must be an angry man. And not just because of the obvious 'having the weight of the world on his shoulders/dealing with the filthiest dregs of humanity/having to wear those stupid goggles' reasons.Having pretty much perfected his game, he's only gone and had many of the things that made the Gamecube Chaos Theory the pinnacle of the series so far taken away from him.

Picture the scene: we've just entered the top floor presentation room of the developer's Montreal studio, and are now gazing up at a large projector screen which is flashing 'innovative' PS2 visual techniques in our ashen winter faces.

Ubisoft have furnished us with further details on Splinter Cell Chaos Theory's multiplayer and to all intents and purposes it's an updated version of Pandora Tomorrow's.

There is usually a moment on a press trip, typically just after you first enter your hotel room after a transatlantic flight, when you wonder whether the game you've come to see is worth the countless miles travelled. This time, however, there's no such instant of contemplation because the answer is to be found lying on the room's desk.
