From the PlanetXbox360.com feature hands-on preview:
"Easily one of the most anticipated video games of 2010 is from one of the most well respected developers in the business, and it goes by the name Splinter Cell: Conviction. Years in the making with a couple complete restarts this Xbox 360 console exclusive has seen it's share of good and bad days. A couple weeks ago PlanetXbox360.com got to sit down with the team behind the upcoming action/stealth title and play through a good bit of the single-player campaign and co-op gameplay modes. Ubisoft was straight up with me, never once denying the fact that Conviction has gone through more than a couple design changes and other issues over the years. Each and every aspect of the game feels like it was crafted by the most creative and caring of developers, no rock unturned or hiding place unperfected. Somehow though the team came out on the other side with one of the most-intuitive and most-enjoyable experiences this experienced video game player has had the joy of playing: Splinter Cell: Conviction."
