Splinter Cell: Conviction UK Review
15 October 2015
Excerpt: "Classy" is the word that keeps springing to mind. Splinter Cell: Conviction is a game about killing people in the dark. But classily. If there was an option to present the scattered ring of mangled corpses at the end of each map with a tray full of Ferrero Rocher, it wouldn't feel at all out of...
