In 2007, tensions between China, Japan, North and South Korea, and even the United States threaten to ignite all-out war. The root of this crisis is Japan's creation of a branch of its military that most of its neighbors view as a threat to regional peace. However, an inside group is also contributing to this crisis, and Special Agent Sam Fisher of Third Echelon is sent to the region to defuse the crisis and find out who is behind it. Written by Sam

Irving Lambert: [Sam reaches a crash site] Fisher, that plane is way too damaged for you to retrieve that information, but we can't let it fall into North Korean hands. NKA recovery teams are already inbound. Call an air strike on the area.
Sam Fisher: And leave those pilots to die?
Irving Lambert: You have your orders. Call the air strike. That building will be a perfect vantage point.

Irving Lambert: Fisher, I told you to leave them and call the air strike!
Sam Fisher: Yeah, well, you gave me my orders, and I'll follow them, once I get the pilots...

The most undermined game of the year
3 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have recently looked through video game boards and had watched Spike TV's video game awards. Splinter Cell Chaos Theory was not even in the running for game of the year. It was used in best graphics technology and best use of sound. But it did not win in either category. Game of the Year went Resident Evil 4, which by the way is a crap game in my opinion. Other games nominated for Game of the Year and were not as good as Splinter Cell Chaos Theory were God of War, FEAR, and World of Warcraft. Jade Empire was even a favorite over Chaos Theory. Damn RPGs don't do anybody good. I just hope that Splinter Cell Double Agent (part 4) will be a much better game and will receive credit for what it will do for the gaming industry. Double Agent should and will win Game of the Year for 2006.
