Game Vortex writes: "Splinter Cell: Conviction was originally announced quite some time ago. At first, the concept was based entirely around Sam Fisher's new status as a fugitive, but the project suddenly and mysteriously fell off the radar. It remained an unknown until 2009, when it was re-revealed at E3. It turns out, Sam Fisher's fifth terrorist-hunting expedition was in no danger whatsoever. Instead, the developers at Ubisoft Montreal had spent their time constructing a bold and violent vision for the future of the series.
Conviction is a game that seeks to redefine the action/stealth genre while remaining a Splinter Cell experience at its core. After spending some quality hands-on time with the game's recently-released demo, I am confident that Splinter Cell: Conviction will live up to the hype."
