Way to ruin the Tom Clancy series, Ubi...

Thibaut Muzart, Amazon
12 October 2012
  • Summary: Where do I start? First, as another reviewer mentioned, if you like constant cursing and foul language, then this game is for you. Second, the gameplay lacks the subtlety of the previous SC installments; mostly, everything seems unnecessarily violent and incredibly simplified. Not surprising perhaps, since Ubi has long stopped gearing their games towards PC gamers, to the benefit of the console market (see how the quality of the Ghost Recon and Rainbow Six series has...

Wish I could play the game

J. McNack "Jay Mack", Amazon
10 September 2011
  • Summary: I pre-ordered this game through Amazon and couldn't wait to get it on release date, I'm been a Splinter Cell fan since it's inception. I was very disappointment to look at the back and read that I have to have a permanent online connection, but since I got it and a 12Mbps down pipe, I figured I might as well install and play.

Do not buy used

Jon Adcock, Amazon
2 August 2010
  • Summary: I see there are some other used games being offered. DO NOT BUY THIS GAME USED. Here's Ubisoft's reponse to my complaint that the game would not play: "Unfortunately, cd keys for this game are only usable one time and are permenantly bound to the [...] account originally used to activate the key, as indicated in the EULA that the original buyer agreed to when the game was installed.

Way to ruin the franchise!

S. Mapus "Mabus", Amazon
12 June 2010
  • Summary: I have had ups and downs with the Splinter Cell series, but all-in-all I love it and couldn't wait for Conviction to finally release. The story is pretty cool and the graphics are fairly nice. Campaign's a little short. I think it took 4 or 5 hours. Multiplayer is probably good to some. Not really my cup of tea. It's like Chaos Theory's co-op only multiplay, which is fun but loses it's replay value incredibly fast.

Intolerable

Alex "CubOfJudahsLion", Amazon
17 May 2010
  • Summary: I own all previous PC Splinter Cell titles. It's a lot of fun to play. But to me, the series has ended right here and now. Here I was, trying to decide whether to get Assassin's Creed II or Splinter Cell: Conviction. I was more than willing to shell out. But when I read about this INSANE copy protection scheme, I decided it's time to move on. Surprising as it may sound, I want to keep my save files in MY computer. I might want to back them up, too.

UBIsoft - You lose

John Mill "Stewart", Amazon
3 May 2010
  • Summary: This kind of customer abuse is only going to lead people to pirate. Sad. The developers are the big losers here; looks like they put out a very innovative and well made game only to have the suits screw them over. XBox is the great evil.

Is this how it ends Ubi? Really?

Remind, Amazon
3 May 2010
  • Summary: As a long time supporter of Ubisoft and one of the actual PC gamers that legitimately purchases their games, I am very disappointed. Since Pandora Tomorrow, I have purchased every Splinter Cell game on the PC. Every single one of them launched with numerous problems: networking, matchmaking, widescreen compatibility....you name it. While it may have taken some time to get the issues resolved, when they were fixed, the games themselves were fantastic.

Ubi Fail. I feel like this game is for rent/ if their servers allow you to play.

Colton J. Weingarden "Check out my youtube!", Amazon
1 May 2010
  • Summary: I think my title to play. My internet connection here has been shoddy because of recent power outages from a storm. No game for me. Can't play for long because I get disconnected momentarily and nothing... not to mention UBI fail servers. Frustration for many gamers such as myself hope that UBI's way of protecting their games goes away.I know I rather support other companies that don't support such methods.

Can't go with Steam or D2D to avoid DRM

irukandji, Amazon
1 May 2010
  • Summary: You can't even buy a digital download of this game from Steam or Direct2Drive without the same DRM scheme. Having an internet connection at all times... I'd understand if the DRM actually stopped pirates. But it doesn't. Disappointing since I'm a big fan of the previous Splinter Cell games. I'd wait for the bargain bin on this one. Or just get a Xbox360/PS3.

Creater refuses to allow deployed military to play this

Brian S., Amazon
1 May 2010
  • Summary: Military members that are deployed are frequent gamers. May carry over their XBox's, Laptops, PS3's, etc to the deployed location (Europe, Middle East, Africa, anywhere really). It's one of the few things left to do that bring some joy from home and give us a chance to escape reality and just have fun. This is the second game now I've found that REQUIRE a constant high-speed internet connection, just to play single player.
