im not too big fan of sam fisher but i am glad that they brought back spies vs mercs.
however I've never seen this site before so I hope we'll see some great scores from the big websites too.
such a shame about the length, now before i get jumped on i own both consoles but still prefer 360 but have no fanboyism towards either console, but there is no way im going to support a dev that puts out a five hour sub hd game, the graphics are not even that good and the screen tear is horrible. i had a lot of respect for ubi before this, and i cant understand why reviewers aren't slamming the game for its short comings.
It's right there in the review. Reminds me of how Modern Warfare has such short campaign, but still good, and it's all about multiplayer. It's a change, and of course, some people don't like change.
the problem for me is i dont like multi player, there are alot of people like me that would only want to play the campaign. if i had bought this without knowing how short it was i would be so disappointed, im glad i didn't pre order this one.
Where the Hate at now? I'm getting this game early in the morning tommowrow and probably will get my copy signed by the Ubisoft Montreal crew. MTL 514 WADDUP! 2 Disagrees? lol PS3 fangurls smh.
Amazon order shipped earlier this morning. Can't wait to play it tomorrow!...then beat it by evening ¬_¬...
Natsu X FairyTail Just because some 1 disagrees with you you think their PS3 fanboys ? Plz grow up
NewZealander is right. Its way to short, and not everyone cares about online, which is just lazy game design anyway, not having to make set pieces or place AI or anything like that, and Splinter Cell is a single player game foremost. I'm sure the game is great and I'm still getting it, I see it as having alot of replayability having put maybe 4 hours into the demo already, but the length is bordering on ridiculous. Especially when the game was delayed so much. Its like a pizza guy turning up, "Sorry I'm an hour late, but at least its cold." I can tell you this for damn sure, if it was a PS3 it would be an uproar. Tell me I'm wrong. "Where is the power of Bluray now?" they would be saying. I'd be interested to see if that disc is full. If it is, thanks alot DVD, theres no room for levels, if its not, why the hell not, fill it up. I dont think this game should be condemned for its length, its the quality of the experience not the length, but I dont think it should be getting a complete pass either. My only hope is, the time reviewers give a game, never seems to be what I finish it in. Maybe they speedrun, maybe I'm just crap, but Heavanly Sword didnt take me 6 hours, GoW didnt take me 8. When you account for loading, movies, dying, retrys, I swear I take double what they say. I'm guessing I'll still get 10 good hours out of the campain and then go onto co-op (offline) which sounds pretty good. But surely this is it, this has to be as short as a game can get. You people dont realise, we keep accepting everything and next year it will be 4 hour games.
I hate what they did with the stealth. Dumbed it down for everyone else.
you can be stealthy if you want, or you can go in guns blazing. there are not as many restrictions as the first few splinter cells if you wana shoot up the room u can now (probs cause u can carry more then 5 bullets lol)
I may have to get the game now. Hopefully I won't have to wait week for gamefly to send me one.
Screw this, my money is going to Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker.
Amen to that. Glad there are still wise gamers left.
So I'm not wise because I'm getting a game I've been waiting for? what If I get both? does that make me Half wise? smh
Get both then? Who cares, you sound defensive.
he sounds defensive because the two idiots above him went completely off topic. who cares if idiot 1 is getting peace walker? yeah, that didnt come across your mind did it? lol dummy :P :)
Report it then like I did He felt the need to respond anyway, so yeah he is sounding defensive.
"It may not be the game Splinter Cell fans were hoping for" Yet, it gets a big fat 9. Imagine if God of War 3 wasn`t "the game God of War fans were hoping for," it would be getting 7`s across the board, and the "reviewers" would rip it a new one. Typical, 360 games get a free pass, while PS3 games have to set a new benchmark every single time just for a decent score.
I predict the meta will be around 83.
If it was a PS3 exclusive it would have been bashed for being short. HS.
PS3 owners still in this media conspiracy theory mix huh?
IGN HS 7 hrs = 7.5 SCC 5 hrs = 9.3 The reason why the media removed marks from HS especially IGN mostly because it was deemed a short game. Everything else is quality. Why not the same measuring stick for SSC??. The only other difference is HS is a PS exclusive. Its funny how very quick for you x360 folks to defend the media when its suits you guys when you know very well this is horse sh1t.
offend their major sponsoring partner (MS).
cmrbe, Conviction is more than just it's single player campaign. it also has a mutlplayer component that is everlasting. HS didn't have anything but a short campaign. think before you speak next time. I beat GOWIII is 7 hours, that wasn't very long either but people still gave it 9's. grow up.
So because HS has no MP it immidiately get 2 points off?. I have been gaming for a very long time now and its sad that PS devs especially this gen will always have to work harder to get the same credit that multi-devs and other console devs get so easily from the media. Take MWF2 and Gears 2 for example compare to KZ2. MWF2 and Gears 2 didn't provide anything new had a glitch fest MP and yet it still gets a free pass compare to KZ2. This is just one of many examples.
Have you ever stopped to consider that maybe the length of the game has nothing to do with it? rather the quality? You know? like Splinter Cell Conviction simply being a much better game than Heavy Rain?
There are like 40 people standing in line. Should be fun time. I think I might pick up the used Xbox version of Splinter Cell 1, 2 and 3 as well. It is buy 2 get 2 free xbox sale at gamestop and Those games only cost like 3-5 bucks a piece. It is going to be Splinter Cell week at my crib all this week.
