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.
Conclusion: So, frustrating combat and a short length, but engrossing writing and striking visuals. Kane & Lynch is a series that flaunts its many cinematic influences, so much so it seems like IO focused on making Dog Days a good movie rather than a good game. In fact, if it were a film, it would be pretty damn good. Hey, maybe that means the movie with Bruce Willis and Jamie Foxx will be good… Probably not. Anyway, unfortunately for IO, Dog Days isn’t a film, it’s a videogame.
Pros: Engrossing story and characters, striking visual style.
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: Are you scared of the dark? Does the thought of dangers, hiding in shadows unseen, frighten you? We fear the dark because there may be something, or someone, hiding within, waiting for a chance to destroy us. We fear the dark because it is not in our nature to be at home there. Well, for most of us, that’s the case. Sam Fisher lives in darkness; it protects him, it aids him, and it hides him. He is the monster in the dark that men are scared of.
Pros: Engaging story; great pacing; outstanding action; innovative stealth system
Conclusion: Tous deux devront coordonner leurs attaques et communiquer régulièrement afin de rester dans les ombres et survivre durant les six missions proposées. Cette entraide est intéressante et donne lieu à des combinaisons jouissives comme le double Marquer et Exécuter. Un mode jouable en LAN, en écran splitté ou encore sur Internet. Le mode Opérations Spéciales est composé de quatre modes de jeu.
Pros: Scénario et mise en scène solides, Le Marquer et Exécuter, La bande sonore, Le mode co-op, L'intensité
Cons: Le mode Noir et Blanc imposé, Courte campagne solo, Trop facile
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.
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.
Conclusion: Splinter Cell Conviction may still demand patient planning but when a well-conceived scenario pays off and the air fills with the cries of frightened soldiers, the sense of empowerment becomes palpable – indeed outright addictive. Sneak to your local store and grab yourself a copy – the Fisher is back and he’s better than ever.
