Excerpt: The creators of Splinter Cell: Conviction, Ubisoft, are known for their inventive titles, polished game play, emotional storylines and their courage to try something new. With Conviction, Ubisoft has laid out many features to turn the Splinter Cell series from a stealth-action title to a movie blockbuster. In this installment of Splinter Cell, our protagonist Sam Fisher has been pushed as far as he can go.
Excerpt: First Impressions My reaction is Latest Videos GAMES 09: Splinter Cell: Conviction video Admittedly, I was never a fan of the series. After growing up beating great stealth games such as Metal Gear Solid and Syphon Filter, every other new stealth game was just trying to imitate them instead of being original. Interest hit rock bottom for the Splinter Cell series over the last few years and the developers felt that something has to be done.
Review: Splinter Cell: Conviction (Microsoft Xbox 360)
6 June 2010
Summary: : Splinter Cell: Conviction is a fine, if not entirely faithful, entry in the series that should be easily accessible for new players and fans alike, though it’s not entirely going to please the fanbase for a few reasons and isn’t quite as awesome as it first appears. The story is interesting and complex, the graphics look good overall and the audio is top notch from start to finish.
Excerpt: Découvrons ensemble si cette marche arrière en valait véritablement la peine, si Ubisoft a su reprendre les concepts qui ont fait le succès de cette longue et attirante licence. De son nom complet, Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Conviction, le jeu fait directement suite à Splinter Cell Double Agent et tente de faire la lumière sur la retraite anticipée de Sam Fisher. Splinter Cell Conviction est composé de trois modes de jeu distincts.
Summary: Right off the bat, Splinter Cell: Conviction hits a level of intrigue often reserved for the climax of a spy thriller. An arresting sense of urgency surrounds every stealth kill Sam Fisher performs, and each level tests your reaction speed and split-second tactical skills. Figuring out how to best move through the levels to take out the many enemies was a thrill, and the gameplay is elastic enough to allow for multiple solutions to almost any problem.
Excerpt: It's hard to put it into words, which is a rather big flaw for a review, but somehow Ubisoft has managed to make Splinter Cell Conviction both new and familiar at the same time. By making leading man Sam Fisher a broken mess who will do anything to seek justice, Conviction is more action oriented than previous games in the series, yet stealth and careful surveying of your environment is still absolutely essential.
Conclusion: Sam Fisher is back with a vengeance then, leaner and meaner than ever before. Splinter Cell: Conviction, like Fisher is also rather lean in terms of narrative-based content, but there's more than enough going on in multiplayer to make SCC well worth the asking price. And we say that with conviction.
Excerpt: Silent Hunter 4 dives you into World War II submarine combat in the Pacific Basin. Dealing with realistic events from the period, the game leads you and your crew through the Pacific campaign as you take action to stop the Japanese war machine advancing. This is Ubisoft’s first steps outside the Northern Atlantic campaign but still reeks of realistic atmosphere and environment.
