Through the eight level missions of the single-player campaign-one of which is also exclusive to the Nintendo DS-Sam Fisher, the most elite black-ops agent of the National Security Agency, will kill from close-range, attack with his combat knife, shoot with the prototype Land Warrior rifle and use radical suppression techniques such as the inverted neck-break to accomplish his duty.
