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: I originally had the collectors edition till someone stole it, so I know what actually comes in it. I like the fact that the game and case with guide inside was there, however the rest of the collectors edition which includes the stickers and concept art book with plastic case were not provided. Overall I can't complain to much, like I said the game was there and it worked.
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.
Great game, really annoying always on connection DRM

Summary: Good: The storyline is a lot better even though it is still ridiculous and not believable. The level designs are pretty great, and I really love the target and auto-kill skill. I like the earning points for doing stuff, so that you can upgrade your gun feature. I also like the new way that mission objectives are displayed. Bad: DO NOT BUY the the Mac or PC version regardless of any news of Ubisoft toning the DRM down a notch; it's not true.
Summary: The game itself is good; it plays like a hybrid of gears of war with some light stealth elements. The developers deviated heavily from the original splinter cell formula on this one, and it works well. However, the limited edition is mired with defects. First of all, it corrupts the campaign game saves very often, which was extremely frustrating when I had to replay the same level over and over again on my first playthrough, and In was forced to complete the entire game...
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.
