I'll be skipping Blacklist since read the article and it states it will play like Conviction

If it plays like Conviction then Ubi is more desperate than we thought.

Ubisoft doesn't care about the Tom Clancy brand anymore....Used to love the tactical/stealth gameplay of these titles....

Rainbow Six
Ghost Recon
Splinter Cell

It's so sad because the Splinter Cell series was my favorite during the ps2 it's all gone to sh!t :(

Seriously though, how awesome was Pandora Tomorrow and Chaos Theory? God I missed those days....

Who in their right mind liked Conviction as a SPLINTER CELL game? It was fun, sure. But I can get third person shooting from other titles. If I play a SPLINTER CELL I want stealth, non-lethal options, ability to sneak past guards, I want to lockpick, I want NIGHT VISION, THERMAL VISION, EMF VISION....not sonar vision. :3

Conviction should just be its own franchise starring Sam Fisher and restart the SC series with a new agent. That'd be good....but will never happen :(

If Blacklist comes out on PS3, I'll most definitely be getting it. While it wasn't nearly the same game as the first three Splinter Cell games, it was still an incredibly good game.

Thinking of it as something other than a SC game, it was the perfect blend of stealth, action, and story.

Personally, I don't see why people dislike it so much. I played almost the entire game like a stealth game, and all they really did was take away the instant game over just because you didn't play it perfect. Aside from a few select parts, you can play nearly the entire game as a stealth game.

How about Splinter Cell: Easy Button?

I'm really loving how everyone disliked Conviction. Glad to know that I'm not the only one.

I must be the only one who didn't hate Conviction. It wasn't as good as the first 3 games, but it was leaps and bounds ahead of Double Agent.

I wish they would bring back the 2v2 spies vs. mercs MP mode. I have no clue why they stopped.

FarCryLover1822390d ago

I liked it, but it was no Splinter Cell game. Also, what was that bad with Double Agent? The SC gameplay was still there and the last gen versions were amazing, and the current gen version was still pretty good. I didn't care for the regen health but it was still a "true" SC title.

I don't think people hated Conviction. I think people are disappointed with the direction it is going. It's turning into a shooter. I still thought conviction was fun but not even close to being as good as the originals. Chaos Theory was simply amazing and Double Agent and Conviction left me scratching my head.. Why can't they be more like the first 3 games?

Splinter Cell: ConViction co-op was amazing. Now that mode was classic stealth.

NoobJobz2390d ago (Edited 2390d ago )

I thought a few months ago that the game was going to be more like the originals. I could have sworn they interviewed the head person and they confirmed that? But if it is a sequel like this site claims then what a letdown.

I'll try to find a link to the video, but I swear that's what I remember hearing.
