VGArabia: In the latest issue of game informer, the magazine reviewed the highly anticipated stealth action game Splinter Cell: Conviction and gave the game a very impressive score.
That's a worthy score. My mind was already made up anyway : ) Nice!
LOL Game Informer.
They are the most respectable Gaming Magazine currently out. Every issue is solid.
I think this fanboy wanted a 10
is one of those games where regardless of review scores, you probably already know if you are going to buy it or not There are about 10-15 franchises where that's the case, and splinter cell is definitely one of them.
Game informer is owned by Gamestop corp. It makes sense they would give it a high review. Im not saying its a bad game, Im just saying Game informer always gives anticipated games high scores so they can make floor sales. Wouldnt you if you owned gamestop?
I guess, first Edge was biased, now Game Informer and finally IGN as well: http://www.n4g.com/News-505... That is right Edge 8/10 GI 9/10 IGN 9.3/10 It's looking like a great game!!!
I wonder why all this hate? There is a PS3 version, it will be released and most PS3 gamers will gobble it up. Don't hate simply because you don't have the equipment to play it. Hate it if it sucks and apparently, it doesn't.
ive always trusted gameinformer mags, if they give scc a 9, then i will no longer doubt scc. gameinformer- 9 Redrum059- 9 actualy i take this comment back, i trust gameinformer still but scc is still pending for me.
10+ hours for a single player campaign and i could understand and respect all the good scores....i remember everyone getting on GoW3 for being 8 hours long...yet game reviewers are finishing the SP in 5 hours...being in production for so long you would think that Ubi would put more into the story since it is very interesting and unique
Without bashing GoW3, it is SP only, Splinter Cell has a multiplayer component, so the shorter campaign length is almost excusable.
lol, it will probably be the last. FLOP!
Have you played the demo? I did and it was fun, I like the more less dependency of stealth... usually if you blow something by mistake in the first 10 seconds the whole mission is blown but with this the stealth is like and intelligent way not to die. It was real good... I played it through it twice .
How is 9/10 a flop?
holy crap..it must be good if you say it is.your one of the biggest ps3 fanboys on this site.ill take your review over any websites, anyday! im shocked! who wants to bet that the ps3 fanboys rush in here and say 'man,ill just get this for the pc' or 'it'll run sweet on my killer gaming rig usin a pirate copy' so predictable
Read my comments, I openly admit to owning the 360 and enjoying Halo 3 having completely the singleplayer TWICE! I like the 360 as a console, the PS3 is my console of choice by far in a away due to the fact it was my first console and the one which is set up to better use the ease of play. I have admitted to woning a PC but cannot run any new games and as such my PC game is Tiberian Sun or Wars. I am not a PS3 fanboy, I just reply to 360 fanboys acting like a PS3 one causing them to retaliate hoping to get them banned.
I like your style of being a PS3 fanboy and actually admitting that the 360 has some great games. Its nice to find a reasonable person when looking through all of the idiots on this site.
mrv ur ps3 fanboy but as u finally purchased a 360 ur finally realizing reality that most 360 games are far better than ps3 games fact edit; or i forgot gameinformer a pro ps3 site tbh ! fact
I bought a 360 after I bought a PS3... so what, you probably only own a 360. I'll add you on PSN, for you to understand the games you must play them, I've completed Uncharted 2 and found it outstanding but that does not stop me admitted Gears 2 is also really good, is it better? Well it's all a matter of opinion, I found myself liking Uncharted 2's singleplayer more because of the colour and the varied environments, if you removed the brown from Gears 2 it'd end up being like that black and red Nintendo game, but that does not really impact the quality of the Gears 2 singleplayer.
I'm glad to see 9/10, it's strange to think of it but a 9/10 usually means better than 10/10 because 10/10 means there's a lot of hype and the reviewers fell into that.
They gave MW2 a 9.5 and the boys went balistic on them
they gave MW2 a 9.75 not a 9.5 here proof: http://gameinformer.com/sea...
the best game in the series. Good job Ubisoft.
Not for me...(yet?) I really prefer longer sp :( but if the gameplay makes up for it and satisfies me beyond my expectations then yes (Y).
if they say a game is good eight times out of ten i agree with them.
never a site though. I have a dutch site which I follow, but I understand which reviewers to trust for my liking and which to avoid. Theyre all pretty reliable and wouldn't burn a game if it's good, but you somehow figure out which of them look at games as you do. I trust certain reviewers, but never their employers.
Nice, i knew it would be a good game, but it turns out to be surprisingly good. It should not have been a surprise tho, suppose i got a bit brainwashed by all the negative sentiment this game got from sony fans.
Well the demo wasn't exactly fantastic, so it's understandable some people were having second thoughts. It's looking like it must have turned out fine though which is a good thing.
Not on purpose ofcourse, but if you see 20 comments a day about SC looking like a ps2 game, then a certain sentiment starts to float around.
score higher then 89% of ps3 games n they call it a flop lol
So STFU with the delusional fanboy B.S.
But Double Agent poisoned me. The snow level was cool though, LOL
AAA title confirmed. :) The number 1 stealth game is back.
MGS4 is getting re-released?
lmao. Good luck with that. (those who tried the demo knows what I'm talking about). ;)
What Stealth? Its not stealth if you fire a gun an everyone can hear it, but then again this isn't MGS4 where you can switch. Halo Noob fails again....hope you get on Halo Reach Beta so I can laugh at you.
Guys...he's just trolling. He knows Metal Gear Solid is a better franchise. Splinter Cell: Conviction will be amazing! It won't be Metal Gear Solid 4 amazing though. He's fully aware of that...so, don't let him fool you.
Any 360 game that isn't on the ps3 is a flop 'Droid logic'
Any game that doesn't sell 2 million copies on launch day is a flop. 'Bot Logic' You should just agree to disagree.
The demo was not indication of how good game is i really was thinking of not playing this but i decided to download it late last night and iam really enjoying it iam taking time through the game and really liking the story this must buy for pc/360 i will be buying tihs on pc for multiplayer they really should of done diffrent demo.
The developer even said himself that the demo was put together rather quickly. And to the fact that level design and difficulty doesn't reflect the full game. The demo was primarily put together in way that would familiarize the player with optional game tactics.
I love how. All the 360 fans love this game because its a exclusive but many fanboys dont know ANYTHING about splinter cell and they are only playing it cuz its exclusive. o well
This means I have to atleast try it since GI gave it a 9.0. That demo was horrid and double agent was watered down. Perhaps Ubi is getting back to the Pandora Tomorrow and Chaos Theory days. of Course Chaos Theory was my favorite. I trust GI so i'll rent it, but that demo was horrendous trash doo doo. lol
Perhaps they are genuinely excited? Where do you get off saying people have never played Splinter Cell games and are just excited because it's an exclusive? The highest rated game on the original Xbox was Splinter Cell and I've played SC games since the original Xbox and I'm sure I'm not alone. Xbox owners know this franchise better than any.
is the highest rated. Sorry lol but chaos theory is the highest rated SC :-)
the original was out on xbox first so Im sure there are alot of splinter cell fans in 360.
That depends where you get your scores from. Back in the day, Metracritic wasn't around.. I always used Official Xbox Magazine "Chaos Theory received the highest score in the original-Xbox era of OXM with a 9.9 out of 10. " But you're right.. Halo seems to be what the majority has as the highest rated ever when you have the internet.
I wish to play it but no ps3 version makes it more difficult for me!
Great score. Can anyone care to explain IGN's messed up rating system? IGN is becoming the joke of the gaming industry.
the 5 categories are not the only factors they consider for the final score. Im guessing the 5 categories are general things that all games can be judged on in some way but are not the only things that you need to consider when reviewing a game. Why do you care about a game that you wont be playing. I know you wont play it because its obvious your not happy about the review scores which are pretty good.
I haven't read the review, but I look at the text and the reviewers excitement towards the game and its features, and see if it matches the score. I still don't like review scores though
Something can be greater or worse than the sum of its parts. With that said, I fail to see what relevance the IGN review has here.
There are certain genres that sell more than others. Stealth doesn't score as high in sales on a launch day.
It's not even half as good as Chaos Theory. Splinter Cell & Ghost Recon are the main 2 franchises by Ubisoft that have become mediocre.
OWAH WAH WAH!! IT'S NOT ON THA PS3!!
Why would someone cry over a game with a five hour single campaign? FAIL.
It's really not worth mentioning. The reviewer must have run out of things to say. (I already have the game.) GoW3 score, now THAT'S worth putting in a review.
They just gave Heavy Rain a 9.5 and Mass Effect a 9.75. Did you really think Splinter Cell: Conviction would get a 10? It's probably one of the best games this generation...so, don't think any less of it because it's not a 10. God of War III was a 10. Apparently, you have to be in like the top ten best games EVER MADE to get a ten from them this year. I'm really sad Heavy Rain didn't get a 10 though. I can't take any reviewer seriously that didn't give it a 10. I'm really excited to play SC:C though. Anyone getting the PC version I can play co-op with?
LOL @ all the butthurt PS Fanboys. Go cry somewhere else.
I don't think they're hurt though. This is a great game. Everyone should be acknowledging that. Let's hope the PS3 version is a good port though. BTW... ...if you wanted to be a fanboy... ...Heavy Rain got a 9.5 and God of War III got a 10. :)
Heavy Rain and God of War 3 are two solid rentals. SC: Conviction on the other hand has single, co-op and multiplayer. The kind of lasting appeal that warrants a purchase.
I'm running on about 75 hours of Heavy Rain...and 35 of God of War III. Yeah...totally rentals. Grow up, man. You know they both have amazing replay value. Splinter Cell: Conviction will be a great game, but please don't put it in the same league as those jems.
Actually God of War has a lot more content outside of just the main single player campaign. For example the challenge modes, character skins, and challenge items all add plenty of additional hours to play! 20 hours and still going! Anyway SCC seems ok but for the short campaign 5 hours? + I dont have LIVE makes it a tough buy.... Am I the only one that liked conviction lol?
wtf.. an 8 is a good score.. stupid internet... go read the page and they say its all good..
not surpised another triple A game for 360
It is looking good. It has to be said that this year is by far the most competitive between the PS3 and the 360. So far you have HR and GOW3 up against Mass Effect 2 and SC:Conviction and all four games have got great reviews. No one can say that owners of either console are stuck for games to play. As an owner of both consoles, there are so many great games that I still haven't played. Long live competition.
Awesome, looks like great scores all round
You do realize its for PC and PS3 later this year right? 6 months timed exclusive, 2 employees let it slip. That way everyone can enjoy the game.
I don't really care that much. I am sure when I go to my friend's house and play the game,it will be no where as great as everyone raves. Xbox 360 games are good I'll give you that but never as epic or mind blowing as the fanboys or critics rave it is. I mean how come a short campaign on an Xbox 360 game gets it near perfect scores but on the PS3 if it is only 12 hours long it gets penalized and scorned for being to short? Never understood that one.
