Splinter Cell is undergoing a drastic rebirth with Conviction, and this is evident all over. For one, the storytelling is pretty good and the action is as awesome as it always has been, or at least, in the early Splinter Cell games. However, when it comes to the sneaking around, infiltrating and so on - you know, what spies and agents like Sam Fisher are supposed to do - Splinter Cell Conviction is a lot easier than previous games. It's a lot more straight forward, simplified, which might turn off the hard core stealth gamers - actually, it most definitely will. But for the rest, Conviction is a lot more approachable Splinter Cell game.
