About Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell
Splinter Cell invites gamers to delve into the dark shadows of cyber-terrorism, shadow agencies, and covert operations. The player controls Sam Fisher, a solo operative directed by a top secret, "black ops" wing of the National Security Agency. Alone, yet armed with some of the best hi-tech weapons on the market, Sam walks the fine line between what is legal and what is necessary. He must infiltrate enemy territory and neutralize the opponents-all without leaving a trace.
Sam is called into action when two CIA agents mysteriously disappear in Azerbaijan. What Sam discovers will trigger a technology-empowered terrorist war against America backed by the former Soviet Republic of Georgia. Sam's mission is to find the source of the threat and eliminate it.
