Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Conviction
12 October 2011
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...
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.
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.
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: There's much more fun to be had by playing the co-operative campaign mode, which also serves nicely as a prequel to the events of the single player campaign. Unlike other games that boast a co-op campaign mode it feels as if this one was actually designed to be played co-operatively from the outset.
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.
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.
Conclusion: The main goal was to appeal to a wider audience; that much is obvious. As a result, emphasis was put on co-op and multiplayer. Then again, we are certain that a great number of gamers will still buy Splinter Cell: Conviction for its single-player mode.
Pros: Sam Fisher's intriguing backdrop and fine characterization kept us going through the main story, although it's the outstanding art direction, cool soundtrack and powerful voice acting of folks like Michael Ironside that convey a fitting sense of immersion, the new cover mechanics work smoothly an...
Cons: Most of the good stuff about this game won't matter to a lot of people because it's over very quickly (the story is good but won't take more than 5 hours to beat), while I did enjoy every mode available, there's little in here that moves the series forward.
Conclusion: On the single-player side, Conviction begins with Sam Fisher investigating the death of his daughter, trying to figure out who it was that killed Sarah. Then, early in the game, Sam gets wrapped up in a big conspiracy that brings him back to the United States capitol.
Summary: The story begins in the year 2012. As the era of the nation-state draws quickly to a close, the rules of warfare evolve even more rapidly. More and more nations become increasingly dependent on private military companies (PMCs), elite mercenaries with a lax view of the law.
