But it'll still contain 'action flick' elements, Ubisoft teases
I hope this is A: True to the past splinter cell games and B: Not 360 exclusive so I can play it
Y U NO buy PC?
Considering I am not made of money and being a third year student about to leave uni blowing money on a PC/360 is the last thing on my mind/can do so I want it not to be an exclusive so I can play it because I like Splinter Cell games (favourite being Pandora Tomorrow)
I also hope it's on PS3 but for me Chaos Theory was the best. I hope any new ones are in the same vein as the original trilogy. I am loving the Original Trilogy in HD by the way.
You don't have to be made out of money to buy a gaming PC. This is a common misconception, and obviously false considering you can buy a decent rig for $300 and a an even better one that will last you a while for $400 - $450.
@MAJ0R, Everybody doesn't have even 300$ to shell out on additional entertainment just because of a few games. It is a common misconception, usually made by people who don't have to pay their bills, feed their family and pay their rent or mortgage. Also, where I'm from, even if you build the rig yourself 300$ won't get you s#!t, not to mention the cost of a monitor.
In the same bind here. I really don't wanna buy a 360 this late in the cycle, especially since I don't have any great reason to. However, I played a little of the new splinter cell with a friend, and maybe it's for the best that I never played the entire thing. At least I can play the HD trilogy to my heart's content.
Not sure where you live, but you can buy a used 360 slim for around 100 bucks.
You do realize he didn't mention anything about the price, right?
You do realize he's not interested into buying one too, right?
You do realize its because 720 is almost here, right?
You guys realized I just C-C-C-C-COMBO BREAKER-ed my own reply, right?
Wtf? Why do you have so many disagrees? All you said was that you want the game to like the past Splinter Cell games and that you don't want it to be released on one console only so more people can enjoy it. Did a swarm of 360 fanboys sweep in or something?
stop being so damn stupid and look again at his comment. he also said "true to past splinter cell games"
whats wrong with him wanting it to be like the older titles? the last game was pants, it was short on story and stealth, it was an action game, not splinter cell at all.
Frankly, that's what they ALL say. 'Oh, it'll be JUST like the fan favorite!' Some deliver. But do I expect Ubisoft to? Ehhhh......no, not really.
When was Splinter Cell a 360 exclusive?
Conviction was.....and double agent was for like a year or something
@koston3647 Oh please, no they weren't. You have no idea what you're talking about. They were released on PC a few weeks later.
Please go back to Chaos Theory Formula of a solid single player that can be attacked multiple ways yet still difficult. A co op that is completely seperate but is perfect and will have you whispering with your friend even if you are playing split screen or online. Last but not least the Spies vs Mercs Multiplayer that was ever so fun, I will never forget the Mall or warehouse experiences. I will act like Double Agent and Conviction never happened like every season of 24 after the 5th. Be splinter cell do not go out there trying to be every other game or appeal to a new audience, because myself at least and I would hope the majority of splinter cell fans thought chaos theory was the best.
Yeah.. Me too i dont want it to be exclusive, my xbox 360 got RROD last year and i noly have a PS3 now
I would prefer it on the PS3 but I guess I have no choice in the matter...Lets hope this new splinter cell is Pandora Tomorrow good...GOSH that game took many many hours of my LIFE...... FTW!
Can't wait! I know I am going to get trolled for this buy I highly enjoyed Conviction but I also understood why they took that direction vs the heavy stealth. I have loved splinter cell since the first game and the story is really good (Clancy of course it will be good) but Conviction was the height of Sam's char. development. It mixed everything you knew from the previous games and then let him off the leash so he had nothing holding him back. I still hope they go back to more of the heavy stealth and I am curious as to where the story will take us next. They also need to bring back infiltration mode, that was the best multiplayer for the series yet. Being stealthy and having to work with a partner was great.
pandora tomorrow was realli realli good my cd got broken :( i love splinter cell and id like to see it come back 2 playstation and ill accept conviction if its given.
Grab up the HD remakes. They are really well done. The first game you can see how early it is but Pandora Tomorrow and Chaos Theory have held up pretty well.
I think there was no wrong going the way conviction was at least we get to have a diff flavor .Most of the gamers want the original splinter cell style so.... ... Can't wait to see the new game.
I hope the root they are talking about is stealth, the next game should follow the structure of Chaos Theory.
Root themes huh? You mean stealth like Conviction was totally missing?
But Pandora was awesome aswell <3 I hope this game goes back to what made Splinter Cell, Splinter Cell. amazing Stealth and little but intense action. I remember in Pandora if we give 1 alarm it was game over, bring back that system!
I enjoyed some of what Conviction did but certainly would have liked to see some of the vs type MP stuff...
yay more stealth. the last splinter cell was basically a Batman ripoff.
no it was a rainbow six vegas ( in one an 1 man army mode ) in third person basicaly and pretty linear environments.
Or maybe...stealth. forget about that eh Sam?
i loved all the games, even conviction. whatever direction they go, ill still play it. as long as its not ruined
Can't wait :)
Spies vs Mercs, please :D
Removing that mode in ConViction was the biggest mistake UbiSoft made. I hope they learned there lesson.
"It will have all of the action flick elements" If this means they're retaining elements of Conviction, then why? Just why? People were so vocal about how it's steps toward full action were just not wanted. I played through conviction again recently after my bro bought it for his zbox. Some of the sections are just damn right atrocious, as in, what the hell happened to splinter cell? "Root Themes" That's too vague for it to even be a teaser. What? Being a spy? Being part of an actual Secret Service? I love the Jason Bourne films. They're modern classics to me, but ffs, Splinter Cell was also a modern gaming classic. Have to wait and see. Conviction was a great dung heap. The fact they're using another generic buzz word 'Retribution' as a sub title doesn't strike me as inventive either...
Bring back the old style splinter cell nn of that gimmick crap from conviction,thoe kinda nice touch it didnt feel like the classic splinter cell.
If you want my cash you must add spies vs Mercs mp
right on schedule. This is a marketing strategy thats been going on this WHOLE generation. first Great game Next game is totally different and garbage but still sells due to the game before was Great. Next game marketing "we are going back to our roots!!" Lets see, thats Gears, Resistance, Resident Evil, and a bunch of others who have figured out how to sell games.
Its like New Coke and Classic Coke.
I love Conviction, I think its a great game. I makes you feel very, bad-assed. I just dont think it was a very good Splinter Cell game, it would have been better implementing those ideas into a new ip. It would have been received alot better. For the new one I, like everyone else, want them to go back to the original trilogy and bring back that hardcore stealth. Theres so few games that do that sort of gameplay, and its why fans of the series, are fans of the series.
Conviction feels more like it should of had the name Bourne attached to it rather than Splinter Cell.
Ghost recon future soldier is basically Conviction set in the ghost universe.
after the fiasco with conviction they will prolly need to redo the series, put new characters, new story, new time-frame and bring back the old style, not that grayed-out mess...
It sold terribly on the 360!!!!!!
I won't be buying this! Not interested in action elements. I want STEALTH dammit. Make the game more like Chaos Theory, and less like conviction.
Dude, Conviction had TONS of stealth in it!? What are you guys talking about!? I played that whole game stalking around in the shadows, sneaking up behind people with Fisher's CQC moves or dropping foes accross the room with a silenced headshot. It had just as much stealth as the other splinter cells.. maybe even more so, since Sam Fisher's head wasn't lit up like a christmas tree with those silly goggles until almost two thirds through the main story! Either way, I've never played a Splinter Cell game i didn't love (I think Chaos Theory and Conviction were the best ones). Hopefully this one won't be a 360 exclusive so it can be enjoyed by all!
Stealth, suspense, atmosphere. Not forgettable action like Conviction.
Personally i prefer the metal gear solid series. P.S..Also i personally prefer console & portable gaming. Cheers Gamers & Happy Gaming!
I'm done with the franchise.... this new Splinter Cell will just be another action flick mainstream piece of garbage.
