Summary: this is the worst splinter cell game that I have played, and I have played all of them! the style of splinter cell is lost. Almost no stealth required. Weak storyline. I loved previous splinter cell games, especially double agent was just amazing, but this one was just terrible.
Summary: IMO this is a horrible entry in the Splinter Cell franchise. The graphics are great, sound is fine. I felt like the game led me along by the hand, was too easy compared to the previous Splinter Cells, and lacked the depth of play that the first three Splinter Cells had in spades. Double Agent was ok, but I felt like I was being punished for playing with the mouse and keyboard instead of a controller. Still better than Conviction.
Conclusion: I don't play MP online, just SP. I loved the first three SC games but this just leaves me cold. I have never bothered to get beyond the first mission. maybe I will one day and give a better rating but I doubt it. The game felt slow and clunky, not as atmospheric as other SC games and just felt like I was going through the motions to be honest.
