I've been thinking this too, since they showed the E3 trailer. Splinter Cell is good because of the focus on stealth (which imo was much better than MGS, but not as good as Thief), it seems like they are straying too far from the formula that made SC great.

It's funny you say that. I've never been a splinter cell fan, I've played a couple of them but never enjoyed them at all. Yet this one is the first that I think looks really good. Early trailers of Sam mashing some guy up in the toliets looked full on brutal.

I fully admit I'm biased because I'm a huge MGS fan but I think Splinter Cells latest outing looks really good. To me, it looks a lot better than previous outings.

Yeah, I understand, I'm also a huge MGS fanboy, but I liked Splinter Cell because it's stealth was more in depth. Also the fact that you could jump between narrow corridors etc. was awesome. But as I said before, if you are a stealth fan, Thief is the BEST, which is why I also can't wait until Thief 4 AKA Thi4f (wtf?)

Am I the only guy who actually listened to what the devs said in the interviews they did at the Time E3 was in effect?

They Said that

if you play the game in real life mode You wont be able to rush in and you'll probably die from being hit by few bullets. So you'll have to use Stealth to go trough the game.

I'd guess that what we've seen at this time in the gameplay videos are played at a normal difficulty so they can show us all the moves and stuff you can do .

i watched a few trailers the other night, and conviction is actually starting to look really good, reminds me alot of uncharted 2 in some ways, like the hand to hand combat moves and the way he drags people off ledges, splinter cell is looking great!

i was hesitant, i didnt think it looked good at the start, but looking at recent trailers i take that all back.

Uncharted 2 is way better then this, this game looks like the first one.
I like the ps3 now .

WTF? The #1 M$ cheerleader just had an identity crisis.

MegaPowa3588d ago

I think this and uncharted are even but that's my opinion. (expects many disagrees from all the UC2 fanboys)

DelbertGrady3593d ago (Edited 3593d ago )

We want more cutscenes!!! j/k

It's not that it's less stealthy, it's just that they have made the stealth action much more intuitive and immersive than in other stealth games.

Looky here:

Let's hope you can do either rather than be forced into gunfights etc.

PoisonedTea3593d ago

My thoughts exactly. I hope Ubisoft have considered this too.

MegaPowa3588d ago

They already said we could do what we wanted so its your choice

Totally irrelevant comment to make. You've played SC:C to make such bold claims? If not then STFU and GTFO. :o)
