Splinter Cell: Conviction Review: This isn't your father's Splinter Cell

Summary: The Splinter Cell series has always focused on methodical stealth; sticking to the shadows, hiding bodies, subduing enemies non-lethally, etc. With Splinter Cell: Conviction, the gameplay is a far cry from its slower paced roots, and almost as unrecognizable as its anti-hero protagonist, Sam Fisher (who seems to suffer from constant rewrites in his personality throughout his career as a spy).
Summary: Tom clancy has always been quite successful. Especially with the splinter cell series. Now the 5th installment is here, and it's so much fun. This is one of the best splinter cells yet. Graphics are great. The surroundings, and character all look great. When it goes black and white it's all right, but color is more like it. Score is pretty good, and voice acting is good. Sometimes great, and sometimes all right. Story is great. It's well written. Gameplay is fun.
Summary: This game came with my Xbox 360 and the moment I started playing it I couldn't stop. It's a 3rd person game, the best thing about it is that its a 2 player game and co-op. The graphics and accuracy of the sniper gun is awesome. It's worth getting... I would recommend this to a friend!
No splinters here - Conviction is a masterfully polished installment

Summary: Splinter Cell has made a name for itself over the past decade as a venerable Tom Clancy series, with its stealth elements being favorably compared to Metal Gear Solid's elements. Starting with Splinter Cell on Xbox and PC, coming out stronger with Pandora Tomorrow and Chaos Theory, and embracing the Xbox 360 for Double Agent, Conviction was fairly well hyped. I still remember the "I got Shotgun" commercial advertising the SPAS-12 as a pre-order exclusive.
Summary: So I was a huge fan of the first few splinter cells, and when I heard that Conviction changed from the classic formula I though it would horrible. So I put off buying it. About a week ago, I saw it at gameStop for 20 bucks and I thought "might as well". I went home and popped it in my 360 and started playing. Right from the start, I figured it was at least okay.
Summary: Splinter Cell Conviction is definitely a different style of Splinter Cell games. However the changes were for the better in my opinion. With new abilities such as Mark and Execute, Last Known Position, and also a cover system, Conviction is an all-around masterpiece. The story is as good as any game out right now as well as the co-op play. Presentation: One word sums up the graphics, stunning. The backgrounds are intense and realistic.
