About this product
- Product InformationTom 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."

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.

Great game however might not be wise to buy full price very short.
Great Game and new feel to a modern classic, but due to this change in gameplay (faster paced) the game even on the most difficult and frustrating realistic setting still felt short. And as a fan I had high hopes playing through such a title but in the end I can't help but feel let down after all ubisoft promised and how long they took to makes this game. However that doesn't make this a bad game at all in fact it might appeal to a newer genre of gamers who aren't used to the traditional metal gear stealth type games. And fans will appreciate the story of Sam Fisher in this installment. If you haven't picked up this title do so now This generations current consoles will soon end after the annoucement of the next gen. This title will be many of those left behind in the backs of gamers who enjoyed it don't let this experience slip by.Read full review

Stealth action at its finest.
This is more a review about the Collector's Edition of Splinter Cell: Conviction, rather than a review about the game itself. I think the game is great, and can't wait for Sam Fisher's next adventure.
But about the CE. Its contents include a steelbook case and an artbook inside a plastic slipcover. Inside the steelbook is the game disc, the manual, the USB drive, and two stickers. Also included is codes to unlock some in-game content: Third Echelon Shadow Armor and the MP5-SD weapon.
The artbook takes art from all of the previous Splinter Cell games, as well as Conviction, which is a bit different. So far, the CE seems to be pretty nice, but the biggest disappointment is the USB drive.
Many were found to be defective, ceasing access to the plethora of bonus content that was on it: "Making of" video, storyboards, screenshots, wallpapers, concept art, renders, and more. Unfortunately, mine was defective, which was quite a disappointment. Some lucky few had working ones. Ubisoft's response was to lower the price of the CE $10 and they eventually put a .zip file of the bonus content on the Splinter Cell site for download.
Though disappointing that mine was defective, the USB drive itself is quite cool, being the size of a credit card with the stick popping up to insert into a computer or the Xbox 360. It's very covert ops, but only if it had worked.
So all in all:
- The game is very fun and has a nice replay value with co-op and multiplayer modes. 9/10
- The CE is aesthetically pleasing and the contents are normally what you'd find in a CE. But that defective USB drive really lowers the quality of what would have been something to be proud of. 6/10Read full review

Conviction: Buy this game
This game plays unlike any other Splinter Cell game thus far. The new mark and execute feature turns the already deadly Sam Fischer into an unequaled killing machine. Some things in this game are identical to the old games though, like the fact that you're a bullet sponge, not Iron Man, and the darkness is your only friend throughout the missions. Having said that, this is the only Splinter Cell game I've played where I felt like I was truly the operative to end all operatives. The single player story mode was a decent length, not too short, not too long, and the deniable ops missions let you be creative in how you go about them, just like in the main story mode. The only real knock on this game is the fact that Archer, in the deniable ops mode and co-op mode, sounds like an arrogant jerk. Do note: you can't pick bodies up after you kill them, but if you grab someone and hold them you can just walk them to wherever you want and dump them there, or out a window as the case may be. This game is well worth the price you'll pay as it has very high production value and makes me wonder why I still play games based on movies with it's great level of quality.Read full review

I bought this game for my son, he is doing the review.
Great game, been playing the story since I got it.
- Great sound, really moody, adds to the atmosphere, reacts to being detected, good for a cue. Great sound acting.
- Story is well written, engaging.
- Very good graphics. Very good level design. Lots of places to flank, cover, hide, and come up from behind.
- Lots of screen tearing, not too bothersome.
- Control system is awesome, you can pretty much take cover anywhere, even when not up against anything. Moving from cover spot to cover spot is slick, with arrows that point in the direction you're pointing and slick animations when you move.
- Shooting is crisp. Headshots kill, enemies sometimes require multiple shots in vitals to die.
- Grenades and toys are fun and have good placement when thrown. Good explosions and sonic reverberation.
- Sam moves smoothly, not like an idiot.Read full review
