Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Conviction is the fifth console game in the Splinter Cell franchise. It was released on April 13, 2010 in North America. In this next installment, Sam Fisher has left Third Echelon since the events of Double Agent and begins the story working by himself on his personal mission
Splinter Cell is an remarkable game. What Conviction brought or rather added to it was another great story line and beautiful graphics. For real stealth game lovers this is THE GAME! Best played with a good game partner even though it's played quite nicely on single-player. Playing on the hardest difficulty recommended.
It may feel much different from every other SC game in the past, but Conviction is a great game in it's own right. The stealth is still a major focus, and it handles much more smoothly than the previous installments. The cinematics and story are also incredible, and the game really makes you feel like a badass. Also, the Co-Op campaign is an incredible experience that is arguably even better than the game in single player. If you have friends, I strongly recommend you play the Co-op. My only issues with the game are the enemy AI and the removal of sound management. The AI has to remain in sight of you for an impressive chunk of time, taking away some of the game's challenge, and they will not seek you out if the notice something amiss. The game is much easier than the earlier games, and not in the best of ways.
