Splinter Cell: Conviction
For People new And Hardcore Splinter Cell Fans
I have played every Splinter Cell throughly and this has to be my favorite. I've heard many people complaning about how this isn't near the true Splinter Cell series. Well, what Ubisoft was trying to do was give you Two options. First, Go guns ablazing, or challenge yourself to stealth. So, they attract two crowds. The storyline is just breathless. *Spoiler* Grimsdaughter is back!!! And it's a side you've never seen before. Only if Lambert would have made it through Double Agent... anyways I can't wait for Splinter Cell 6 and this is way worth $60 on it's release date and is worth $18 today. Buy it!!!!!!!
Just the game i wanted from Tom Clancy.
One of the BEST games i played EVER!best game of the year.The game has great graphics and sound.My little brothers always want to play it but i tell them no.Too good a game to be messed up.
Short, but fun game.
Conviction starts off very soon after Double Agent ends. Sam Fisher is wanted by corrupted Third Echeleon, a secret branch of the NSA carrying out the most important and bloodiest jobs in the world.
The plot is very well written from beginning to end, though the attempts of betrayal are usually obvious before they happen. Besides that, it is pretty good, but the co-op prologue mode seems like you're jumping from place to place.
The gameplay is pretty good, with it written to fit the plot. Fisher is no longer as stealthy as he was before and focuses more on killing groups quickly or playing cat and mouse. Their are only minor graphical glitches, but most won't hurt you all to much.
The length of the game is a little bit disappointing. It takes only about five hours for the single player and about an hour and a half for the co-op, though co-op and single player mini-games will take up a lot of times.
Currently, this game is a great buy if you like to be in the leader boards, or are tired of games where all you do is press the trigger for six hours. Weather it be snapping enemies' necks in the shadows or tossing a mine in a group of enemies, this game fits every play stale.

Very Good Game
In my opinion this was a very good game. The story is interesting and it keeps you wanting to know what's next. The game gives flash-fowards to points certain time periods from the current mission, which can be a spoil, but is cool in other ways.
The hand-to-hand system is very good, as well as the idea of stealth. Iny my mind, most games ruin the concept of stealth and sneeking around to accomplish an objective undetected. This game is currently as close as you'll get.
The gunplay system is good for a third-person shooter, but the use of bigger guns (Assualt Rifles for example) can be a bit bitter.
There is also a lot of extra gameplay options after you beat the story, which is very important for gaming. You have:
1) A totally different co-op story.
2) Extra game mods for both co-op and single-player.
3) Online options as well.
I would give this game a go. At least a rent, probably a buy. It's even a Platinum Hits game now, and for only $20. Definitely try it out.
Lost a bit to the Stealth, But Exceptional Game Still
This isn't your typical go stealth through the entire game Splinter Cell. There is no grading system after each mission of how stealthy you were. You can choose to go stealth, or you can choose to just unleash havoc with a nice assortment of weapons. There is several fun game modes outside of the normal story, and the co-op multi-player is great weather you have a seasoned teammate or a new player to the series. You can collect and upgrade your weapons, as you complete special challenges the game offers. These are like achievements but not the actual xbox live achievements. Controls are easy to pick up, and for the first time in a long time of gaming, they are laid out well. Graphics are exceptional, and the sound isn't bad at all. Sometimes it can get annoying, but for the most part its great. The only major downfall to the game is the length of the story mode. It was short to me, only taking 12 hours my first run through. Deniable Ops, and Co-Op mode add to the replay ability though.
Short Story, awesome game!
Splinter Cell Conviction is one of the best shooting/action games I have ever played! The gameplay is very good and the stealth cover system works well. The soundtrack in the game is one of the best ever, too! It lets you get into Sam's head, which is very detailed and kind of scary to tell you the truth! However, the story could have been a little bit longer! The story isn't dissapointing, and it will definitely keep you on the edge of your seat for the entire time. If you start the story mode it will you take you (if you play non-stop) A litlle over a day to finish. But, if you take breaks, for instant, like I did, it took me, on realistic difficulty, around 4 weeks to complete! The co-op is very interesting. I haven't tried it yet, but it looks like it runs very smooth. Yes, it is completely different from the single-player story, but it doesn't feel out of place, it feels just right! I give this game a 8.5 out of 10! I highly recommend this game if you're into shooting/action games!
Nice story, but....
This game has excellent graphics and sound. From the looks of it a lot of people really loved this game. However, I've seen it before and with this game I'm seeing it again: The older, original Splinter Cell games for the original Xbox were much funner and more challenging. Once again, they've dumbed down the skill level for this game to make it more "playable" for more casual gamers. Drives me nuts.
I noticed they've been doing that for a lot of Xbox 360 games. For example Ninja Gaiden 2, it was a great game when Itagaki had control over it for the original Xbox....then they make it for 360 and a new guy comes in to make it "more playable for casual gamers" and the series goes to garbage.
I'm glad I played it and finished the story of Splinter Cell, however, I would not recommend this game to a friend. It was way too easy. I had to wait till the very last level to get any sort of a challenge out of it. Buy a used version for like $15 somewhere, play it for a while and be done with it.
Splinter Cell: ADDICTION
You are Sam Fisher, now working as a free agent, following the path of his daughter's killer to the island of Malta. His once personal mission unfolds into something much bigger! In this game you have to (at least attempt) to sneak past enemies in order to reach the checkpoint, but if you are spotted, you do not die instantly, but must then participate in a gunfight. This game is somewhat addicting in ways, like the additional missions in which you must use your skill of stealth to get around and silently take out the enemies, in which you can play as Archer or Kestrel. There are other game modes that you can play as them also, or play online, split-screen whatever. I do also have Splinter Cell DA (Double Agent) but I recommend this over that. All splinter cell games do have something worthy in them though, so anyone that you pick up and play will, through all the dark shadows and stealthy moves, have something good in it. What's next for the Splinter Cell series? Tom Reed, who took him out?
