If they are going to change the voice actor to someone that sounds nothing like michael ironside then change the character all together and give sam a cameo roll with he real voice actor.
I couldn't agree more! I am so disappointed with this decision:( It doesn't make any sense to me at all. It's bad enough that Michael wasn't hired to act as the voice of Sam (and the reason why is absolutely insulting and ridiculous) but they made Sam move and talk like a 20-30 year old! They are destroying this franchise IMO. Maybe the game will be good, but that doesn't even matter any more. They f'd the story and legacy of Sam Fisher up so badly...
They SHOULD have had a new Splinter Cell as the main character and have Sam (Michael Ironside) play an Operations Coordinator role and be the voice in the ears of the "new guy". Seriously, Fuk the new creative director for destroying this once amazing character and series!

Yeah I don't buy the reason they gave that they wanted to use someone younger for motion capture. In Halo 4, they just recorded the VA's work over the actors. I would have preferred to see us play as someone new with Sam as your commanding officer - it would've made sense

I like the idea of Sam leading Fourth Echelon, but it's really time for him to quit field work. They showed with Archer and Kestral that they can make new characters that are still interesting. This game should have had you play as a new Splinter Cell recruit, with Sam filling the same role that Lambert had in the other games (that way they would even be able to keep Ironside, and it makes more sense than a near 60-year-old man who's the LEADER OF THE WHOLE ORGANIZATION doing field work)
