    Look at this screen, it looks like sam doesnt have his hair cut down to his bald self yet and it does look like he is on a mission.

    http://media.xbox.ign.com/media/736/...g_3265870.html

    what does this mean? i thought the game would have started off in the jail, but it doesnt look like it...or maybe his hair grew back or something?

    If it's a COOP/Versus screenshot, that would explain why it isn't SAM. Could also be a cutscene totally unreleated to Sam entirely.

    It could have like a cut scene about when he takes the job.Before his haircut.

    That IS sam, and he is on a mission. This is 99% a single player mission. They mentioned missions with Jaime, like getting out of prison, im sure this is another. His hair must have grown back.

    1. It could be MP as much as it could be SP. Nothing was confirmed.

    2. Any amount of time could have elapsed where Sam did grow back his hair.

    3. The chances that Jaime is an equivalent in skill that Sam is would be rare, so a good chance that the "partner" shown there is no Jaime.

    4. We know of an ice-level, dubbed "Iceland level". Just because we see ice doesn't mean that this isn't a new MP level (imagine environmental obstacles as a new feature in MP)

    He just broke out of jail, smart move might be to change his appearance, just a thought..

    i remember reading somewhere that sam was on a mission, and then sarah died. he couldnt concentrate on the job at hand and lambert pulled him out...then he begged to become involved in something to bury his pain..etc,etc. oh wait..the GI scans..

    so yea, this could be before the roll down the hill events occured...

    What would hit you hard is if you PLAYED the mission Sam was on when Lambert broke the news.... that' be a showstopper to say the least....
