AMO's Marty Mulrooney has just published a brutally honest review of Splinter Cell Conviction for PC, detailing problems with the port including intrusive DRM and botched controller support:
"Splinter Cell Conviction is the fifth instalment in the Splinter Cell series of video games, yet it almost feels like a total reboot. Released in the middle of last month (April 2010) on Xbox 360 to critical acclaim, PC gamers had to wait an extra two weeks to get their hands on the title. Was it worth the wait?
In a nutshell, no. I am pretty appalled that I have to start a review in this manner, but so be it. The PC version of Splinter Cell Conviction as it stands now is a total disgrace. So much so in fact that it heavily delayed my review for AMO."
