With a fresh approach to predatory prowling that's bolstered by the trappings of Third Echelon, Fisher's homecoming is one to remember. Watch the official GameTrailers review of Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Conviction.
8.9 lol.. such garbage.. just give it a 9 gametrailers so momma MS is happy. Clark, open your eyes. The thing is 88 on metacritic. Its not AAA, and no the majority isn't giving it a 9. Yeah Ill be watching Avatar on my bluray player, then finishing up god of war 3, mixing it up with Uncharted2's new multiplayer modes as well. The entire time my eyes will never have to drop to the subhd quality of flopbox360 titles.. Because ill be playing SCC on my PC @ max settings. Sucks to be a 360 only owner.
Read up on all the reviews. Majority reviews give this a 9.0 or higher (Pros out ways minor Cons). Stop your complaining and trolling. Please, go back to playing your PS3 Blu Ray Player. Peace.
It's an 88 average so far on metacritic, clark. Half of the scores are 80/100.
No, actually, it sucks to be a one-bubble 360 hater & troll. So many great games already this year, & none of your BS will change that.
Clark why don't you go back to your 480p DVD player. Yo 2007 called they want their lame xbot argument back. The ps3 has more AAA games than you fire brick. Edit. Hey sox fan maybe you can answer me a question. Why are all Boston fans are such crying baby b!tches. Oh and your sox are gonna get swept by my twins.
You kids are morons. How is a 88 average after almost 30 reviews not a triple A title? Heavy Rain at 87, Bioshock 2 at 88, Battlefield Bad Company 2 at 88, are those not triple A games? I don't think you kids really know what a triple A game is. Who assign the arbitrary figure of a 90 metascore as being a triple A game?!
Stanlee... I think those scores are good. 85+ should be AAA.... but thank your xbot originators for that 90+ nonsense: Mart, Jason360, Powerofgreen... All of those *******'s paved the way for this nonsense.
Bioshock 2 was a steamy pile. Had to get that off my chest.
If 85 is triple A, that would exclude great games like Borderlands which is a great game and a triple A title. A triple A title is a title that delivers on the expectations of the game's budget and ambitious development. If a small studio made a budget title that is respectable like a Metro 2033 with a 78 metascore, that's fine, that's the median for the industry but when a major studio, makes a game with a budget backed by a major publisher and it delivers, that's a triple A title. Borderlands has an 84 metacritic and 82 reviews. Firstly, that's ridiculous, I don't care about 82 people's opinions. If metacritic is going to be the standard for the industry, the gaming industry has the identify a select small group of publications and gaming media who's opinions are valued, not every two bit blog and website.
See Stan, I have to disagree with you on Borderlands. Such an ambitious title, but it just didnt deliver FOR ME. Borderlands is equivalent to a B rated movie. It was glitchy to all hell... I hated the cheesy, lazy graphics... and the shooting felt like crap. The basis of the game is a shooter and it felt sloppy. The game froze on me many times... It could of been a AAA game, but it fell short. I have higher expectations for BL2... we will see.
now Gotta get back to playing the best stealth game ever! thanks, ubisoft! Kojima pay attention!
If nothing else I admire your dedication.
good score for a 5 hour game
You mean not-even-close to the best action game with some poor stealth elements put in it to appease the real fans of Splinter Cell. The game doesn't even let you drag bodies because they "didn't have enough time" in 5 years. Please this game is pathetic for anyone who really loved the first 3 Splinter Cell's. Sick of all the great franchises being ruined because everybody wants to change things and make everything action missle jackson super fighter in your face blaow blaow BS. Next thing you know the next Silent Hill will have a cover system and you'll be able to call for air support.
Suit yourself. Kojima knows we like to hide bodies, though. ;-)
Bubs for retard Cartman on the Silent HIll comment. haha, funniest thing I've read today.
i can fart better than 8.9
lol look at all the disagrees you have fanboys are just hilarious. Anyways great score it has been getting many great scores getting it tomorrow.
I thought it would get AAA scores. The length seems to be average since this one says its 8-10 hours (which means 360 fanboys can stop pretending 5 hours is fine and PS3 fanboys can stop acting like its too short). I would like a solid answer on length though. 5-10 hours is too wide a margin. Is it 5 or 8? Anybody know? If I get this game it will be because of multiplayer. It's still getting great scores though, and on its own its a solid looking game. Too bad older fans aren't as pleased.
that although MGS4 was really good, the storyline has always been confusing, and the gameplay has struggled to keep up with Splinter Cell. There really not in the same league IMO. MGS is a great interactive movie/gaming experience and Splinter Cell has always had the best spy gaming experience you could buy.
I liked the Splinter Cell demo over the MGSIV demo, but I felt that Splinter Cell relied more on flashy moves and MGS felt a little more tactical. Only played the demos, so take it for what its worth. I have never heard people compare these two games though, GrimReaper. Why can't they both be great? Why does one have to be distinctively superior?
Fishy Fingers...I don't admire anything about him including his dedication. He is a troll and he is probably not even playing MGS4, he just wanted to try and antagonize everyone else. Great community we have here.
lol I dont think Kojima has much to learn here. But the vice versa could be helpful for SC:C team.. never the less, picking this game up asap! I wanna play the bloody awesome co-op already.
Wait! Conviction is a stealth game?!
Are there reasons for your opinion or do you just like the way Sam looks in his tight pants. I can understand you feeling that MGS story lines are confusing but to try and compare this action game to a real stealth game like MGS is crazy IMO. SSC will be the first Splinter Cell that I don't play. I have watched the trailers and lost of gameplay. The things that made the first games run neck and neck with MGS are lacking in this title. Stealth used to be the focal point in these games. SCC has changed that. As far as I'm concerned MGS and SC aren't even in the same genre anymore. Lets not compare the 2. BTW calling your personal opinions common knowledge is ignorant and arrogant
well as usual this review is plagued by spoilers ..
GRRiMREEAPeR..."the storyline has always been confusing, and the gameplay has struggled to keep up with Splinter Cell"....but I thought it was the best stealth game ever?
I'm curious about the real play-time too. Generally speaking, I take a good couple hours more than the average anyway. :-P Though I have to say, even if the single player is only 5 hours, at least there's that co-op mode that seems to bring another 5 hours (so they say). Co-op is one of the things I really miss from most modern games. I'm waiting to see if Alan Wake gets good reviews. If so, I'll have to finally get a 360 for this, Alan wake, and the L4D games. My PS3 has kept me plenty busy, but you can't deny a good collection of exclusives has built up for the 360 too.
Awww, man. It's at 88 on metacritic so it's not AAA. Maybe the next game I get on the 360 will be AAA.
"Karma is a B!tch" Nathan Drake. So many times I read about the "short" 8+ hours GoW3. I just want developers stop f*ckn good games and fantastic gameplay modes. From what I watched SC:C has more in common with UNCHARTED 2 than to SC:Chaos Theory. More action, more action, less "hardcore", more streamlined==dumbed down mechanics, Dead Rising is TOO Japanese says Capcom, Dead Space is taking clues from MW says Visceral. WTF? stop it already
I agree, brilliant post and it sure made me laugh LOl!
You know, one game that's never criticized for being short is Batman: Arkham Asylum. I think I finished that game in 7 hours my first play through but I've never seen anyone criticize the game for being short. That is so weird. It's like the game get's a pass for finally delivering a solid super hero themed game. Or maybe it gets overlooked because the game wasn't savagely hype like Modern Warfare 2 or exclusive. When it's all said and done, everyone who played the game enjoyed it and didn't feel like they were cheated out of $60. So why all the arguments about a game's length? Fanboyism is really stupid.
"Why can't they both be great? Why does one have to be distinctively superior?" Alpha, you of all people shouldn't ask that question.
Mark and Execute through walls... that surely makes this game AAA /s. That's just a hair-brained bug to not have been ironed out.
Good ol' Gametrailers, forgiving problems with Xbox games that they would NEVER let go on a PS3 game.
That is a matter of preference my friend. Many prefer MGS franchise over Splinter Cell. In my opinion I do think MGS is the better franchise and Splinter Cell is not too far behind, but why would you even bring up MGS in the first place? The review was on Splinter Cell if I am not mistaken. I think both franchises are great and both can coincide with one another. No need to make remarks as such to make your point that you like Splinter Cell.
so lets stop comparing it to mgs4
Definetely better than that crap @ IGN. I think the animations could be better though and AI. After 1 part when they shot the 2 guys he screamed fyck me after he supposedly dead lol.
Agreed, I could tell that the AI wasn't great in the demo but that is kind of a Ubisoft staple. Assassins Creed, Splinter Cell, Rainbow Six, all of these games have poor AI compared to other series'.
lol, Flop! Garbage, MGS4 wannabe
LOL so you want same fisher to wear a cat-suit?would that make you want to play it? personally i think its gay if man wears a cat-suit.and its even gayer if the enemies in the game make weird fruity noises when they see you.
Without the suit for Snake in MGS. Snake would just look like an old-one eyed-bum hippie in regular civilian clothes.
I`m gonna go ahead and get this out of the way. Using bot logic, SCC is a flop. It`s at an 88 on Meta, and everybody knows it drops from the initial reviews. Also, the fact that it is a 360 game means the scores were inflated anyway. The funniest part is that it`s not even a 360 exclusive. Splinter Flop Conviction, Splinter Cell Flop, Sphincter Cell Conviction.
I don't think I realized how petty and miserable you guys actually are. I'm convinced you guys don't play video games only b*tch and moan about the review scores or exclusivity. And that goes to those on both sides of the fanboy coin. Edit @ below But doesn't that make you a droid? You're buying in to the same stupid philosophy. You say you're not a fanboy but you're doing the same thing you accuse fanboys of doing. Do you see the irony? If more of those stupid comments get ignored, we'd be better for it. So Heavy Rain didn't get over 90 or higher on metacritic and neither did Bioshock 2 but they're extremely polished, well made gamse that more the live up to the budgets and ambitions. They ARE triple A titles.
I`m simply going by bot logic. If they want to call Heavy Rain, MAG, Yakuza 3 etc. flops, then SCC is a flop too. Simple as that.
It is 11:30 AM Central Time. And only 17 reviews have been placed. On average there is total of 70 reviews to be placed. My First look at these ratings was 23 hours ago. When I placed the 1st response on this page. It' been up and down, between 88% -90% since then. http://www.gamerankings.com...
" 8 - 10 hours in the single player campaign " Hmmmm.... I knew that 5 hour stuff was balls
1 site says 5, another says 8-10. it probably is 8-10, but why do u instantly assume the one saying 5 hours is incorrect... both IGN and Gametrailers are big sites
Every game's length will depend upon how and who is playing it. Unless of course it's on the system you dont own, then the shortest reported length is FACT!!! See GOW3 or SC:C.
No, its 5 hours.
Because think about it logically dude 5 Hours would be the quickest you can do it, why? because if another site says 8-10, lets say 8, that would mean at a steady pace you will do it at around that time 5 hours is obviously the minimum since another site has claimed more, and 8 hours has to be the maximum if another site has claimed less That made more sense in my head lol... Plus, you have the challenges which sound great and from what I understand an entire Co-Op campaign with its own story?
1up and IGN both said about 5 hours, sadly. Not arguing quality, but that is just way too short any way you cut it for a campaign, same with MW2.
give sam fisher a batman costume and we get arkham asylum 2.
yh it seems pretty good to me, 8.9 isn't a bad score Its one of those games i wish were on ps3, nevermind :/
I guess the 5-hour campaign and the sub-HD visuals kept it from getting a 9.
I like to think it was wishful thinking on your part.
I've learned not to even bother with people like him, they are retards.
Just to show you how much of a double standard it is when it comes to 360 AAA and PS3 "AAA". http://www.metacritic.com/g... vs. http://www.metacritic.com/g... http://www.metacritic.com/g... http://www.metacritic.com/g... (Heavy Rain is one of my favorite games this gen, by the way.)
Guess what. I too used to care about things like exclusivity, review scores, and all that mumbo jumbo, and yesterday I decided that I would stop giving a damn and just play games like I used to in my youth, and guess what happened. ....I had good old fashioned fun (well....not necessarily old fashioned) ...no really! Just try it, get off your computer, leave your fanboysim and bias at the door and just pick up a controller and play, see if your disposition towards life doesn't increase just a little bit? KTHNKSBYE!!! =D
I actually enjoyed the review, if you ignore the score which i think was a bit to high, 8.5 or 8 seems more appropriate.
I would agree based on the issues they took with the game. I was surprised when they showed the breakdown and then gave it an 8.9. Oh well, I picked mine up about an hour ago and can't wait to get home and try it out.
Yup, seems like a bad thing with the execution through the walls, still i might pick this up later for Pc, maybe when it comes on steam sales.
Yeah, there are clearly a few things that could have used some polishing.
Lord... The game is not 5 hour long... It's more than that. Even though there's basically no stealth, you need to plan a bit your moves many parts so you can . If you run everytime just to pass through without actually trying to have fun with the game then maybe it can get 5 hours short, but seriously.... Who would do that?
But you can still do some serious stealth. There are plenty of trailers that would prove that fact.
8.9 is a great score, for an obviously great game, but what exactly is the difference between an 8.9 and a 9.0? Why not just go ahead and give it the 9? I generally dislike arbitrary scoring systems anyway, but the 100 point system seems to the among the least consistent. There never seems to be any justification for the decimal differences.
Nice score can’t wait for Alan wake…
lol! so much flop! too bad even gametrailers a known bot site pulled down game's metacritic score
I'm playing co-op right now and there IS stealth, you don't even have to kill anybody or you can run and gun, just like mgs4....you could totally run and gun in that, anyone that says you couldn't is lying or isn't very good
well nest will be alan wake
