Story
A few years have passed since the cliff hanger conclusion of Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Double Agent, in which Agent Sam Fisher undertook a particularly dirty mission, full of questionable actions, in the shadow of the inexplicable and unmourned death of his daughter. Fisher is now a renegade operative digging into the events of the past and he doesn't like what he has found. His personal investigation into his daughter's death reveals that he's been betrayed by his former agency, the Third Echelon. The agency responds by pursuing him, but as he works to elude them he becomes aware of a deadly terrorist plot that threatens millions. He is uniquely positioned and prepared to act against this, but success is doubtful without the help of former friends from the Third Echelon team, resulting in a series of life and death situations for himself and the country where trust can by no means be assumed.

Gameplay
Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Conviction, as with all games in the Splinter Cell series, is a tactical stealth-action game. In single player modes players take on the role of Sam Fisher and engage in a series of missions utilizing high-tech weaponry, gadgets, lethal hand-to-hand combat and interrogation skills. Overall objectives and the necessary steps to achieve them are challenging, yet always clear via dual verbal and visual expression that seamlessly alerts players as they progress through missions. In addition, Conviction enhances the world of stealth combat that has made the Splinter Cell franchise a runaway hit for years through a series of revolutionary new gameplay features. These include:

  • Mark and Execute - A gameplay mechanism for eliminating several enemies at once, Mark and Execute allows players to "Mark" multiple enemies, or points in the surrounding environment for termination in batches. Once this is done, a close-combat kill is required, after which the player can activate the "Execute" portion of the mechanism to dispose of all enemies in a cinematic manner. A limited amount of Mark functionality is attached to players' weapons, so this ability must be used wisely.
  • Last Known Position - Last Known Position is a visual representation of where the game's AI assumes you are, based on where you were last sighted. This provides players with a wide array of options, including setting traps for enemies, flanking maneuvers or simply disappearing while you are thought to be elsewhere.
  • Experience System - Successful completion of objectives via the Persistent Elite Creation System earns players rewards in the form of experience points. These can be used to upgrade weapons and gadgets that will allow for cleaner, quieter and more deadly attacks.
Co-op Story Mode
Prologue, the co-op story mode included in Splinter Cell: Conviction is available either in split-screen local play or via Xbox LIVE. Prologue offers an exclusive prequel campaign to that found in single player mode and features new characters and settings, three difficulty settings, three sub game modes and four maps. Designed to stand apart from, as well as supplement the single player campaign, gameplay mechanics available within it include shareable Mark and Execute target points and Last Known Position, as well as teammate revival functionality via a portable defibrillator, the ability to work with a teammate to eliminate enemies who have captured you, and more.

Key Game Features

  • A New Level of Splinter Cell Action - A full arsenal of cutting-edge innovations allow you to outflank foes with the Last Known Position system, tag and eliminate enemies using the Mark and Execute feature, and much more.
  • Blockbuster Experience - A unique storytelling style keeps you on the edge of your seat as you navigate the explosive world of a renegade agent where trust is impossible and justice requires you to go above the law.
  • Jaw Dropping Visuals - A revolutionary new graphic direction delivers an utterly seamless gameplay experience that’ll keep you totally engrossed in the story of Sam Fisher.
  • Explosive Xbox LIVE Play - Addictive multiplayer modes, content downloads, messaging and voice support and more amp up the dramatic intensity like never before.
  • An Exclusive Co-op Story Mode - "Prologue" is an exclusive story mode featuring new characters, settings, four exclusive maps and more. It is only available within Conviction's Co-op mode.

Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Military members that are deployed are frequent gamers. May carry over their XBox's, Laptops, PS3's, etc to the deployed location (Europe, Middle East, Africa, anywhere really). It's one of the few things left to do that bring some joy from home and give us a chance to escape reality and just have fun.

This is the second game now I've found that REQUIRE a constant high-speed internet connection, just to play single player. The first I saw was Assassin's Creed II and now this one, another high-anticipated game. What in the world are these companies thinking? They don't even have servers that can handle the loads of people trying to sign on to the SINGLE PLAYER games, so you may find yourself waiting hours upon hours just to sign in. Then you'll find yourself knocked off when the server slows down too much. [...] for this?

As far as the military community (hundreds of thousands of people) are concerned - NONE of us can every play these games while deployed, TDY or just traveling around the country.

I can understand companies doing what they can to prevent copyright infringement, but this is TOO FAR. You've alienated an entire corps of people and the hatred for this type of program requirement is growing drastically among the public. It's time to wake up and release patches that will allow single player people to play these games with no internet connection at all. (that's what install ID codes are for inside boxes at install).

Wake up Steam and fellow companies that keep this internet requirement insanity.

1.0 out of 5 stars Wish I could play the game April 28, 2010
Platform for Display:PC| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
I pre-ordered this game through Amazon and couldn't wait to get it on release date, I'm been a Splinter Cell fan since it's inception. I was very disappointment to look at the back and read that I have to have a permanent online connection, but since I got it and a 12Mbps down pipe, I figured I might as well install and play. Install was quick, but when I tried to play it, I could not connect to a server to play the game, waited an hour, two hours, four hours, still no go. This is a bad impression to me and I will never by another game with this DRM or permanent connection needed, my advice is to not purchase this game, this has been a huge disappointment. Why go through the trouble of having top notch hardware if you can't even use it play the game, cause it's been ran off a server. I must say, I do not understand the decision these execs make, but they have lost a customer here.

You know, I consider myself really tolerant of DRM and things like Steam that make us validate our product is legit at install etc...

BUT - there is a line, and this game definitely crosses it! I don't want any singleplayer game needing an internet connection on at all times! I am already a little annoyed that any single player game would require an internet connection at install....i think they aught to have some avenue (like a call in number like MS does with windows) for people to validate without the need of the internet.

So, here I am, writing one of these reviews I never thought I would pen, but I just feel it needs to be done when I see this sort of thing happening.

Unfortunately I won't be purchasing a game I would have been willing to spend 50$ on. I feel bad for the actual game developers to have their art so significantly diminished by this :(

1.0 out of 5 stars Bad move for the gaming industry April 29, 2010
By Max

Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
1) Internet required to play a single player campaign.
2) Saved games are saving in some server and not in your PC.

Yes, you don't own your saved games anymore.
This seems a big joke, but it's true.

1.0 out of 5 stars Sorry Ubisoft. NO DRM for me!!! April 28, 2010
Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Standard
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
I was at Gamestop yesterday where I reserved this game and looked on the back of the box. I noticed as well that the saved games are kept online!! This is even more controlling than Sony is with the PS3. Once I seen that I proudly refused to buy the game. Time to boycott companies that follow these evil practices. Show them that the consumer is control with our wallets!

P.S. I guess the new DRM Scheme they are using is the reason why we are paying $60 for this game instead of $50. That reason being that they have to pay for the server forcing us to be connected to even play this game. NICE RIPOFF!

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't be a fool, don't buy UBISOFT! April 29, 2010
Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Standard
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
Every new game UBISOFT is publishing requires a constant Internet connection to play, regardless if you are playing solo or not. If the UBISOFT server is unavailable for what ever reason (denial of service attack, link problems, you're on an airplane, or you have no internet connection), forget it, you can't play and the game will abruptly halt.

Regardless how fun the game might be, this kind of 'DRM' makes activations look good, and I won't even buy a game that requires Steam. Don't buy this game and better yet, don't buy anything from UBISOFT until they dump this stupid DRM. I would almost rather have Starforce again than put up with this!

1.0 out of 5 stars Please don't support this horrible drm! April 29, 2010
Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Standard
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
Unless you've been living under a rock or, you know, you're...a casual gamer (gasp!), you've probably already heard about the latest scheme by a major publisher to come up with a "pirate-safe" DRM system:

-You must have your system connected to the internet at all times
-Your saved games are managed by the DRM system...meaning if you lose your connection for even a second, you lose ALL PROGRESS since your last save
-If Ubisoft's authentication server ever goes down, EVERYONE playing their games is immediately dropped, losing all progress since the last save and remaining unable to play until the servers go back. They've been down several times already since the system started...sometimes for hours

This system has been around in Ubisoft titles for the past few months; Splinter Cell: Conviction is no exception, meaning customers have plenty of experiences with it and they are SO BAD that it isn't even worth discussing the game trapped in its clutches. Of course, this system has ALREADY failed; the pirates have found a way around it. That means this is one more DRM system PUNISHING honest customers who bought their games, and rewarding the pirates who get the games for free with a crack eliminating the DRM...meaning they are having a better experience than paying customers, because they don't have to deal with the "always online" hassle. Sometime explain to me how that makes sense?! I'm not encouraging piracy, of course...just pointing out what a jagged pill it is for us to swallow, and at some point, we have to draw a line.

DON'T SUPPORT this DRM. Send a message to Ubisoft and ALL publishers who would consider a similar approach: we expect you, the publisher, to assume your paying customers are HONEST people.
