Splinter Cell: Conviction Review: This isn't your father's Splinter Cell
on March 04, 2013 at 06:30 AM
The Splinter Cell series has always focused on methodical stealth; sticking to the shadows, hiding bodies, subduing enemies non-lethally, etc. With Splinter Cell: Conviction, the gameplay is a far cry from its slower paced roots, and almost as unrecognizable as its anti-hero protagonist, Sam Fisher ...
Sam is back, and better then ever

Tom clancy has always been quite successful. Especially with the splinter cell series. Now the 5th installment is here, and it's so much fun. This is one of the best splinter cells yet. Graphics are great. The surroundings, and character all look great. When it goes black and white it's all right...
No splinters here - Conviction is a masterfully polished installment
on June 08, 2011 at 04:20 PM
Splinter Cell has made a name for itself over the past decade as a venerable Tom Clancy series, with its stealth elements being favorably compared to Metal Gear Solid's elements. Starting with Splinter Cell on Xbox and PC, coming out stronger with Pandora Tomorrow and Chaos Theory, and embracing...

Concept was good, execution was good nice change of weapons.
A good deal

So I was a huge fan of the first few splinter cells, and when I heard that Conviction changed from the classic formula I though it would horrible. So I put off buying it. About a week ago, I saw it at gameStop for 20 bucks and I thought "might as well". I went home and popped it in my 360 and...
Not Your Typical Splinter Cell

Splinter Cell Conviction is definitely a different style of Splinter Cell games. However the changes were for the better in my opinion. With new abilities such as Mark and Execute, Last Known Position, and also a cover system, Conviction is an all-around masterpiece. The story is as good as any game...

When this game came out I thought it wasn't going to be that good, but then I was in Gamestop and had some extra money. So I said what the heck why not try it. When i came home and played it I really liked the story and co-op story. Overall I really liked the game and would definately recommend to...
Sam Fisher Returns
on September 29, 2010 at 06:41 PM
I’ve never been a huge fan of the Splinter Cell series. And here I am a writer of thrillers and a major fan of the genre; enjoying the likes of the Borne trilogy, 24, Metal Gear Solid and the Patrick Bowers series. So I was pleasantly surprised to find myself immersed into the world of Conviction...
Ubisoft delivers a good game, but no challenge.

Splinter Cell Conviction was my first run in with Sam Fisher, and now I’m afraid of the dark. If you have never heard of this guy, imagine a bear with night vision goggles, and gatling guns for arms. Oh, and make him a ninja and honorary Globetrotter to top that. Throw that all in a blender with...

This game would had gotten a 10 from me other than the fact that it was to short man when the end came i wanted more this game could and should have alot of DLC..... And the multi player rocks, the ending caught me of gaurd and was an outstanding ending.. But all i wanted was more more more I hope to...
Sammy boy, where have you been?
on May 14, 2010 at 10:33 PM
Having beat most of the Splinter Cell franchise, I must admit, I was ready ro a change. Sure, waiting around in dark corners for long periods of time, carefully calculating your enemies next move is fun, but it does get old, and it gets old fats. When I played the Splinter Cell games, I loved to lie...
Stealth actioner doesn't disappoint

This was the first splinter cell game I've played and its been a great introduction to the series for me. the stealth aspects of the game are both intuitive and enjoyable. Mix this with a well worked out combat / cover system allows for a variety of ways to engage the enemy. The single player campaign...
Just like poker. Easy to learn, hard to master.

Splonter Cell: Conviction is one of the first games where i tried to be stealthy and outflank guys in a firefight and actually accomplish this goal. And as much as i love the whole; use the shadows and strike while hidden idea in video gaming, i just was never good at it. With this i feel like somebody...
Splinter cell with no pain.... well for you anyway.

This game is stunning. I have not played a splinter cell game in a long time. Though I did enjoy them they were kinda of tedious with system of lighting and cover that was once used. This game does a great job proving a stealth game with options. It's fast moving enough were you wont have to wait...

Indeed a great title to play. I would agree with reviewer on his review. The game is not perfect but is truly the best Splinter Cell Title Yet. I did however, like the black and white radar. It always made me aware of my surroundings. I was displeased with the multiplayer modes like hunter etc. It always...
Splinter Cell Conviction, Reasons to get this game!
on April 22, 2010 at 08:57 PM
This game has an awesome story line that is easy to understand even if you are not familiar with previous titles.I thought the fact that for Co-op there was a completely separate story line was awesome, it has great multiplayer for 2. Even though the story line may only be 6-7 hours (on hardest difficulty...
Splinter Cell: Conviction

The newest installment to the Splinter Cell series has changed the dynamic of the series for the better. The game still has its original stealth roots with a twist of a 3rd Person Shooter. This adds a new element to the game, instead of having 3rd Echelon pull you out of the situation if you were detected...
