It has been quite a while since I have wanted to play a metal gear game anything with raiden in it is pretty much a big no for me. and while metal gear has gotten off track with their games and strayed from snake. Splinter Cell has only gotten stronger, the game play is more enjoyable, Sam now learned how to fight when he runs out of ammo ect. But now that Snake is back! and looks like he had a harder life than a straight guy at a Kathy Griffin special not to mention a full open world to let him reek havoc and wreck hell in. I feel that this time snake will finally knock sam out of the spot lite again. as long as raiden stays away metal gear has a chance.
