Sam Fisher is ideal recognised for his exploits on consoles and the Laptop, but he’s a veteran of the portable activity environment as very well. With Splinter Cell releases on the N-Gage, DS, and cellular phones, it was only a subject of time right before the grizzled agent sneaked his way on to the PSP. But despite what its title would have you feel, Splinter Cell Essentials is fully avoidable.
Splinter Cell Essentials is somewhat of a Sam Fisher’s Biggest Hits compilation, bringing a handful of missions from each of the 3 released games, as very well as quite a few brand-new missions. And, like a greatest hits album, there is no continuity or context to tie it all together. You just bounce from 1 mission to yet another, spanning a couple of decades of Sam Fisher’s illustrious career as a shadow-loving badass. There is an attempt to tie the missions together, but it is a weak hard work. Essentials will take area just immediately after the gatherings in Splinter Cell: Double Agent. The activity opens with Sam having to pay a pay a visit to to his daughter’s grave on the 1-year anniversary of her demise. It turns out that Sam ditched the Third Echelon and went lacking immediately after his daughter died, and was documented to be associating with recognised terrorists. This has Homeland Security worried, so they monitor Sam down, arrest him, and get started demanding answers about his earlier.
