Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Conviction
13 March 2014
Conclusion: In this case the HUD works in tandem with the style of the game and is all the better for it. Scores Ok i've talked enougth, now onto what this review boils down too. Story- Solo 8/10 Story- Co-op 9/10 Online- 7/10 Sound- 9/10 Graphics- 8/10 HUD- 9/10 Overall- 8/10 If you vote negativly please let me know why, as long as it is constructive, im always looking for ways to improve :)
Conclusion: Splinter Cell Conviction is both a welcome entry in the series as well as a strong departure from the norm. Gone are the many strong lighting-based stealth mechanics, replaced with a simple can/cannot be seen lighting scheme that both works and detracts from core Splinter Cell gameplay. This has been replaced with several interesting and intuitive combat actions.
Excerpt: Somewhat ironically for a game titled Conviction, rendering a verdict on superspy Sam Fisher’s latest skulking, sneaking, neck-snapping adventure is actually pretty difficult. Here’s the problem: There are two ways to judge Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell: Conviction—as a longtime series fan, or as someone who thinks a Splinter Cell is something that needs to be examined by a doctor before it becomes infected.
Pros: Engaging, well-designed levels; new techniques that reinvent combat.
Cons: Perhaps a bit action-heavy; later portions of the game are glorified shoot-outs.

Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Conviction - Deniable Ops Insurgency Pack
4 June 2010
Conclusion: It's too bad that disastrous online issues cheapen what should have been a great value for Splinter Cell fanatics. Nevertheless, $9.99 still gets you four quality levels that are fun to investigate even when you must rely only on yourself to complete the mission. That's a bit much to ask considering the troublesome online play, but the maps are still good enough to make the Deniable Ops Insurgency Pack worthy of your consideration.
Pros: Four intricate, three-part maps can be used in three different modes, The levels capture the character of their American settings, The map complexity makes Face-Off mode a ton of fun.
Cons: Broken matchmaking means you may never play these maps online, The AI is too easy to exploit.
Summary: Splinter Cell: Conviction's first full-sized downloadable add-on is a good one; unfortunately, the main game's continued online problems diminish its value. Broken matchmaking makes finding a match in any mode--and on any map--a time-consuming hassle, and it's still all too common to run into server errors when entering the multiplayer menu. These problems are heartbreaking, because the Deniable Ops Insurgency Pack is an excellent bit of downloadable content.
Pros: Four intricate, three-part maps can be used in three different modes, The levels capture the character of their American settings, The map complexity makes Face-Off mode a ton of fun
Cons: Broken matchmaking means you may never play these maps online, The AI is too easy to exploit
Conclusion: Splinter Cell: Conviction does go out of its way to throw in other kinds of variety, and fortunately, it hits more than it misses. Many levels, such as an early one in an art-filled mansion, look colorful and may be approached in a number of ways. A jaunt through a fairground, a secure checkpoint surrounded by innocent bystanders, and an excursion through an airfield are also particular highlights, because they offer plenty of room to slink about and prepare some...
Pros: Executions look really slick, Superb storytelling gets you into Sam's head, Great soundtrack keeps you immersed, Cooperative play can be fun.
Cons: Campaign is short and easy, No voice or text chat in co-op play, Bugs, glitches, and connection issues, Stealth options are stripped compared to previous games, Interrogations are a missed opportunity.
Summary: Sam Fisher is mad--and after playing the PC version of Splinter Cell: Conviction, you might feel a little cranky too. Conviction tells Sam's conspiracy-driven story in a brilliant way, and its slick execution moves are fun to perform, particularly in the game's cooperative mode. Unfortunately, these sharp strengths are dulled by a number of issues that will have PC players feeling like second-class citizens.
