It's time for another round of Pick One! This week, with reports of a brand-new mainline Splinter Cell game in the works, we thought we'd take a look back at the history of the franchise on Xbox so far.
There have been six games in all across the 20 years of Xbox, with the most recent title arriving all the way back in 2013. That said, there are some classics amongst them, so picking a favourite might be a tough call!
