    Last week, when I was in Québec City to make some repairs on my pick-up truck, I stopped at a computer store nearby. I took a look around before heading for the (small) games area. (Yeah, that store was more specialized in radios/cell phones/computers/TVs than in actual programs.)

    I ended up picking up the first game of the "Splinter Cell" serie for $15.00 CND (plus taxes).

    I just completed the last mission tonight. It was a damned good infiltration game. However, when I saw the credits, I was surprised that 90% of the names are French. I made a quick search for Ubisoft and realized that the Montréal office of that big company made 14 games since it opened in 1997... Including all of the "Splinter Cell" game serie.

    A side note : I read on the back of my CD case that the original voice actor of Sam Fisher was Michael Ironside. After seeing a few of the movies he was playing in, I can say that the character of Fisher fits perfectly with the kind of character Ironside played. However, I wonder why they did not take him for the French version... I think he is bilingual, no ?

    How can it be "ridicoulously" hard ? I mean, the hardest it is, the more "human" the AI looks.

    If you hear a guy knocking down your buddy next door, you'll go take a look at it, no ?

    I must say that I never played the second game, though.

    It is brilliantly realistic, granted, but you have to do it stealthily...I like to be able to go in all guns blazing if I have to...
