Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Conviction Best Buy Exclusive (Microsoft Xbox 360, 2010)
About this product
|Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Conviction is the fifth original game in Ubisoft's definitive stealth action series, starring modern-day ninja Sam Fisher, former NSA special operative. The game breaks from earlier adventures, as Fisher breaks from his government service to embark on a quest of vengeance. The action is faster and more fluid than in earlier games, and Fisher's superior abilities in hand-to-hand combat are brought out of the shadows to the forefront, for fast-paced, violent encounters.|
In at least one sense of the word, the title's "Conviction" denotes the main character's drive and dedication to his cause. The story is darker and much more personal than in previous Splinter Cell adventures, even including the morally ambiguous Double Agent. The hero has lost his faith in the NSA and the Third Echelon, turning his back on their institutions and applying his peerless skills of infiltration and assassination to a more personal task. He seeks the killers of his daughter and is willing to leave a trail of as many dead bodies as it may take, be they hardened criminals or government operatives, in order to have his revenge.
Splinter Cell: Conviction introduces a new system, called "Mark and Execute," that allows the hero to attack enemies or objects with amazing speed and accuracy, when properly prepared. While Fisher is hiding and undetected, he can observe a scene and players can use a button to temporarily tag different people or objects. When a second button is pressed, Fisher breaks stealth and immediately fires at each tagged target, in rapid succession, allowing him to shoot out all the lights in a room, destroy cameras and other security equipment, or to quickly kill multiple enemies with the element of surprise, before they have a chance to fight back, defend themselves, or raise an alarm.
Even if Fisher is caught in the middle of a maneuver, all is not lost, as he can still try to dash to the shadows for a quick getaway. If he is successful in regaining stealth, a ghost image of Fisher will appear where he was last spotted, giving players a visual reference to where the enemy will be concentrating its attention and perhaps allowing them to attempt another surprise attack from a different angle. The Best Buy exclusive includes a code to redeem an in-game "SC3000 Assault Rifle."

I love this video
After being left with a bitter taste in my mouth from Double Agent, I was eagerly awaiting this title hoping it would fix the damage that Double Agent had done. I must say I am thoroughly happy with this game, and couldn't ask for more.<br><br>I can't really pick out what was wrong with Double Agent, I just didn't enjoy it as much as the previous two titles in the series. It felt lacking in many ways. Conviction fixes whatever was wrong with Double Agent, and then some. It gets to the core of stealth gameplay. Hiding in the shadows, being rewarded for stealth kills and headshots. A new cover-to-cover movement system makes it a lot of fun, and easily accessible for those not used to the gameplay style (like me...as I've been playing FPS' for the last few months.)<br><br>The story thus far in the portion of the game that I've completed is confusing and compelling. It doesn't let you know too much about what is going on, and doesn't bore you or make you mad with a lack information. No complaints with the voice acting.<br><br>In addition to getting back to the core values of stealth, this game goes a step further and allows you to just kill everyone if you're finding yourself getting caught in a certain part. Thats right. Wanna kill everyone? Go for it. You don't have to hide bodies any more. You get rewarded with points for killing in certain ways, which you can spend on upgrading your weapons, which is another nice addition. Not only can you upgrade your weapons to your liking, but there is a plethora of unlockable weapons to wreak international havoc with.<br><br>Sam is stripped down to himself and his weapon(s). No fancy gadgets, no fancy dynamic camo. The game sucks you in and makes you want to be Sam getting back at everyone for messing with his family.<br><br>It gets a 10 from me.Read full review

Excellent game, for a low price, you can not miss in your collection.
Splinter Cell: Conviction. Fifth installment of the series written by Tom Clancy and tells the story of Sam Fisher in his missions as an agent of Third Echelon. One of the best games of this generation, where stealth and action are mixed at equal amounts. Weapons, tools and skills that make the game a unique experience. On many occasions you can opt for the stealth, which is more complicated, but frees you from many problems. And others, you can choose the action. The game is really engaging and history of the best, always keep you on the edge of your chair. Maybe a little short, but that can be necessary to complement an excellent co-op offline and online via Xbox Live. If you like action and stealth, do not miss this delivery and even more if you're a Sam missions.
