Summary: I am a Splinter Cell fanatic! I've played every game that ever came out on the PS consoles. That being said the game is part of a great legacy. The graphics aren't as crisp but it's OK. Not great but good. Glad I waited to buy it until the price dropped though.
Summary: Splinter Cell Conviction is a fun game with top notch graphics no doubt. However, it plays more like a Die Hard game then a Splinter Cell game. One of the greatest things about Splinter Cell games is the amount of power you feel as Sam Fisher. Fisher is a bad*ss and the earlier games sure made you feel like that. The interface's of the earlier games made you feel much more in control.
Summary: I love the splinter cell series, played and beat every single one, conviction itself is totally new compared to the old splinter cells, less stealth and realistic settings, but its fast paced and very fun on campaign and coop, however the multiplayer is complete garbage don't buy this if your a multiplayer kind of person it will only let you down, but definitely a good single/coop player game.
Summary: Its a easy game there is a ton of room for error and theres a "press button to win". Not a fan of this sort of changes. Even in the harder difficulty its not that hard to beat. Chaos theory and double agent were far more interesting and fun to play. And pandora tomorrow had a excellent multiplayer that I was hoping would make a return. Its a good action game but as a stealth game its too casual and dumbed down.
A game not worthy of bearing the name "Splinter Cell"

Summary: Conviction was a pretty big disappointment compared to its predecessors. While the previous games emphasized and refined stealth elements, they seem to take a back seat to cookie cutter action in this game. In a nutshell, the game basically felt like a watered-down version of Gears of War with stealth elements tacked on.
Summary: I bought this game because the Splinter Cell franchise represents quality and greatness. I cannot say that about this game without hesitation. While the cinematic and voice acting are all up to par the game-play is clunky. They say you can either play stealthily or with your guns blazing. I found myself in limbo not feeling like I could commit fully to either one.
You don't so much play the game, you watch as the game plays itself

Summary: Even on the hardest setting, the only real challenge is taking out the enemy without them seeing you. No more stealth, no more hiding bodies and avoiding lights altogether. No more timing the rounds of the guards so you can take them out at the right time. The AI is intentionally stupid. Instead of trying to find you or using any logical pattern, they mostly ignore you while shouting curse words about what they'd like to do to your mother.
Summary: It is too bad that Tom Clancy is so spineless that he would allow the pressures of the world to drag his games into and through the gutter. His first 4 games were great without any of the slums being built into the game or its dialogue. It is funny that we label an utter lack of civil decorum and self control as "Mature". What a sad commentary on the state of thing here. We first played this in Multiple Player mode and had a ball.
Summary: This franchise used to be great, you could kill enemies, pick up bodies and move them out of sight; you can't do that anymore. It seems more like a twitch shooter disguised as a stealth game. Dont get me wrong the game is fun and has a decent story but it's not like the older splinter cell games (which I've bought all of). I hope UBI Soft goes back to the old splinter cell mechanic.
