Summary: This is one of the best games I have ever played. In these days it seems many games are rushed out the door and Splinter Cell Conviction feels so thoroughly completed. All in all I feel that they delivered in the sense that when you play this game you truly feel like you are the best of the best. I thought the storyline was great too.
Summary: Splinter Cell and Metal Gear Solid are my biggest addictions. So when I heard Splinter Cell: Conviction was coming out I could't wait to play it. The problem...Its only on xbox 360 and I don't own one. So after much debate and many reviews from others I decided to take a chance and purchase the PC version. Now the problem is when I recieved it the first thing I did was boot up my computer, insert the cd and...NOTHING!?!?! Seemed as if the cd was blank.
Summary: I have not been able to play this game because of Ubisoft's decision to REQUIRE a permenent internet connection. My internet is always connected but the game comes up with an error saying that i'm not connected. Conversations with Ubisoft support were totally worthless. This seems to be a common problem that Ubisoft ignores. I will never buy another game made by this company.
Summary: Even though I HATE the Ubisoft DRM, the game itself is a great game. I never played the splinter cell series, but the mix bag of action and stealth in this game is extremely fun. Alot of free content and the matchmaking system is great. But what makes this game shine is the coop. Wow! I have never had so much fun playing with my buddies online before. The game design for the coop is very satisfying since you HAVE to work together to complete the missions.
Summary: This game is excellent, but its a bit short. Luckily there are deniable ops, and I guess you could replay the main campaign once or twice. Gameplay is fun and easy to get comfortable with thanks to onscreen instruction reminding you of controls. I missed most of the story, as it doesn't seem to be particularly interesting or intelligent. I feel for those who experienced problems with DRM, and that is a damn shame.
Summary: I only play single player games. Now I have to be connected? There are so many places I go that doesn't have internet access. For $50 I shouldn't be tied to the internet. I have put up with Steam for years and this only gets worse. I agree with the all the comments about DRM, a sad move for the PC gaming market.
Summary: It's a shame that UBISoft feels its necessary to have a game that you have to be logged in constantly and all of your saves are online...not on your computer. However I don't think they will be changing their ways anytime soon. UBISoft just released their 2nd quarter results which showed that sales were up 93%, which they attribute mainly to strong sales of this game. This game sold sold 1.9 million units.
Summary: Let's start with saying that i was skeptical to buy this because of the DRM, BUT, i have a permanent internet connection and they already have patched the game 3 times before i got it. I got it on steam on sale because i said "what the heck, i might as well for 45.99 for the super splinter cell pack and the demo on the 360 kicks butt. I don't want drm to stop me from playing a great game.
Summary: After a mediocre title, called Double Agent, Ubisoft has decided to try a new perspective for their Splinter Cell series. This time, the story evolves closer to Sam, as he try to solve the mistery who are responsible for his daughter's death. As the player will soon find, entire plot is more closer to Sam's feelings and reactions, his personal life and the love for his daughter, without leaving the other parts of the story behind.
