Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell: Conviction is a very demanding video game that will put even the most powerful rigs under the pump. For many enthusiasts the lack of multi-GPU support will be a problem and we hope that ATI/Nvidia and Ubisoft can work qui

It took me until the last sections of Conviction to figure out what it was – until then I was getting frustrated and angry at the whole thing, then it clicked. It was the realisation that this isn’t Splinter Cell and that trying to play it as Splinter...

Conviction is a Splinter Cell game in name more than anything else. You could easily swap Sam Fisher for Jack Bauer or create an all new character and no one would give it a second thought. The gameplay is fast, and Sam has been transformed into the...

Say goodbye to all the sneaking around Somewhat ironically for a game titled Conviction, rendering a verdict on superspy Sam Fisher’s latest skulking, sneaking, neck-snapping adventure is actually pretty difficult. Here’s the problem: There...

The hallmark of Splinter Cell games has always been mission that emphasized on quite and stealthy infiltrations; some of which required players to complete an entire mission without killing a single enemy. For me, patiently lingering in the shadows,...

Conviction represents a change to the Splinter Cell franchise and a change that is not completely successful. Aside from being much easier than previous games it also contains more action. So much so that one segment plays out exactly like a third...

Splinter Cell Conviction successfully broadens the series' appeal, though long-term fans may consider it too dumbed-down Good Points: Cleverly told story, more accessible than previous titles in the series Bad Points: Graphics are sometimes weak,...

Splinter Cell: Conviction is a departure from the normal format for this franchise, focusing on kinetic action rather than the more deliberate, stealth-sensitive progress of the earlier games. From a technological perspective, Splinter Cell:...

Reviewer - John Layland Splinter Cell Conviction has been a long time coming. When it was first announced in 2007 the fact that Sam Fisher was sporting a rather rough looking beard got more attention from the press than the actual games announcement....

It would be impossible to launch into a review of Splinter Cell: Conviction on the PC without discussing Ubi's controversial DRM, so let's get this over with; it's bloody awful. As a devotee of Steam, registration and lockdown of a game to a...

After the disappointing release of Splinter Cell: Double Agent, Ubisoft’s announcement of Conviction came with many worries for long-time Splinter Cell fans. As it sounded, Ubisoft was effectively planning to water-down the series to achieve wider...

The game’s much hyped interrogation techniques are awesome to look at but are a bit disappointing to pull off. For those of you who haven’t seen them in action, it basically involves Sam extracting information from some unlucky SoB. To do...

Sam Fisher's sixth videogame outing, and his first in almost four years, marks a further refinement of the core principles of the Splinter Cell franchise. The real-world credibility provided by Clancy's endorsement remains intact, as does...

It doesn’t need to be said anymore than it already has; for better or worse, Splinter Cell: Conviction survived the development process and is now available for the Xbox 360. The wear and tear of the enduring development cycle is clearly evident...

The definition of stealth-action gaming, Splinter Cell, is getting a major gameplay overhaul. The last game in the series, designed by Ubisofts Shanghai office, was relatively received as possibly the worst yet. This time round Sam Fischer is coming...

International Review By MegaStorm on 60

Jag har aldrig varit typen som orkar ligga still i skuggorna och vänta på rätt tillfälle. Sam Fisher är mer en sådan typ än jag. Själv vill jag ha lite mer rakt på jävlaranamma när jag spelar. I det...

Splinter Cell: Conviction je posledním dílem z oblíbené série o Samu Fisherovi. Poslední díl trochu překvapivě využívá poměrně starých technologií, jakými jsou Unreal...
