Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

Become Sam Fisher, a renegade spy agent on a personal mission of vengeance, forced to thwart a terrorist plot that threatens millions of lives.

Now operating as a free agent, Sam follows the trail of his daughter’s killer to the island of Malta. But what starts as a personal mission becomes part of something much bigger when Third Echelon intervenes. Sam is taken back to Washington for interrogation and learns explosive secrets about his past – and Third Echelon’s future. Forced into an impossible situation and tormented with new knowledge about what happened to his daughter, Sam teams up with old brother-in-arms Victor Coste to unravel the deadly web of conspiracy that his family has become entangled in. Sam’s personal quest and a threat to Washington itself collide as he dives deeper into the conspiracy. With time running out, Sam must face his past – or there may not be any future.

Two Player Coop Campaign: Embark on a prequel mission to recover stolen warheads in the heart of Russia or engage in one of three Deniable Ops battle modes.

Sam Fisher is back, but he's not playing the good guy any more. Gaming's most dangerous super spy has quit working for the Third Echelon, disgusted by his old department's corruption and distraught over the loss of his daughter. When he discovers her death was no accident he begins to track down those responsible…

Sam Fisher isn't working for the government this time
You're not playing by the rules anymore as you search for your daughter's killers
The new "mark and execute" feature brings instant death
Why climb through a window when you can pull an enemy through it?

Now that he's on his own and out for revenge there's less emphasis on stealth and more on all out action and unrestricted body counts. Environments are more interactive too, with almost any object ready to be used as a weapon. Plus you can climb onto and around almost every piece of architecture to set-up your ambushes.

Not only are the graphics better than ever but they're cleverer too - displaying mission objectives on the side of walls and using new visual aids to help keep you one step ahead of the terrorists.

Key Features
  • New man: Sam Fisher returns at last, with the biggest overhaul in Splinter Cell's history and a new, more brutal style of action.
  • Target acquired: New "mark and execute" feature lets you lock-on to an enemy and fire at them automatically, no matter what else you're doing.
  • Visual clues: In-game aids bleed the colour from the screen when you're hidden in shadows or let you know where enemies think you are with a special silhouette.
  • Low tech: Sam's working on his own now, so instead of a high tech optical cable to sneak looks beneath doors he has to make do with a car mirror instead.
  • In the sandbox: Larger, more interactive levels let you make the choice between a full frontal assault or a more stealthy surprise attack.
About the Developer: Ubisoft Montreal
Ubisoft's huge development studio in Canada has created many of the French publisher's biggest hits, including the Splinter Cell series, the modern Prince of Persia games, Rainbow Six: Vegas, Assassin's Creed, Naruto: Rise of a Ninja and the Far Cry sequels and spin-offs.

Product Description:

Sam Fisher. Off the grid. Outside of the system. Looking for the truth.

For years, Sam Fisher has been off the grid and on his own, tracking his daughter's killer. The trail leads to the last place Sam wants to see again: Washington D.C. Now Sam must work with old friends he can no longer trust, forced to save a country that used him and threw him away.

Unless he can stand against both a vast, faceless enemy and a corrupt Third Echelon, he'll never know the truth of what happened to his daughter.

Become an enemy of the state, embroiled in a conspiracy that leads all of the way back to Capitol Hill, in Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Conviction.

3.0 out of 5 stars Splinter Cell Conviction (PC) 17 April 2012
Verified Purchase
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
My reasoning for low stars are merely because of how bad this game has been ported to PC.

So many developers are focusing now on console games (I guess that's where the money is) that PC gamers such as myself get left with Star Trek online RPG and I wouldn't play that if you paid me, and I like sci-fi stuff.

I just want ONE game that works on PC as it should. Unfortunately no developer ever thinks about PC games and only a few of them ever end up being optimized (Borderlands and both Mass Effect games are brilliantly optimized PC games, for instance) where as this one was, I suspect, just ported and "it works, sell it!" strategy was applied, which I can imagine is what happened with Bulletstorm, Fable 3 and so on.

Any developer SHOULD KNOW that mouse smoothing isn't needed on Computers. Its for consoles, SO REMOVE IT!

the controller schemes. With the keyboard and mouse combination, although not everyone's favorite (and if its not your likely a console gamer), you know how customizable it is, and how much more accurate the mouse it, and developers often make it difficult to re-bind keys and so on, aside from making it feel like i should be using a controller and its not on. I chose to play this on PC, and its your job to make sure it all works and feels right. Does anyone ever test these games once they've been ported?

The game itself is actually a pretty good game, and I liked the story aspect of it, but the whole technical side of things just ruined the experience for me. I'm well within the recommended specs (and above) and I know I'm not the only one who has struggled with this game somewhat.

5.0 out of 5 stars Truly under-rated game at a steal of a price. 20 July 2011
By Matt
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Being a so-so fan of the Splinter Cell games back on the Xbox, I've always seen the series as being quality but never that big of a name in gamer's minds.

And in this case with Conviction, it's a series shame.

Yeah its not rated all that well among critics, a bit ''too much of the same'' for the Splinter Cell series, but this latest entry is truly, truly fantastic and, judging by the cant-resist low price it's going for on the PC, seriously under-rated.

It is scarily realistic in everything from the look and feel of the weapons to the jaw-dropping look of Sam. His postures when crouching, the way he holds the weapons, the way he walks, every diving animation, are all ridiculously realistic.

Graphically pretty darn good. Almost photo-realistic but at the same time a bit cartoonish, especially with the blood. System demands are actually quite generous when you see the game in motion.
Running on my GX740 laptop, i7 720qm (2.8ghz turbo'd), 4gb RAM and an ATI Mobility HD 5870 (1gb) which is essentially an HD 5750 desktop equivelant, running at 30-40fps on max settings at 1650x1050 res. Runs smooth and looks sharp.

Sam is much more stripped down compared to other entries in the series. You feel more like Jason Bourne in this version than in the trademark black body-hugging infiltration suit(s) and green goggles of previous games. This adds an almost militia feel to Sam, more James Bourne (see what I did there, wow, cheesy) than Sam Fisher. Seeing as Sam is no longer tied to his previous game's employer, Third Echelon, you are now a hero who gains new tech and weapons from what he finds around him. Want that new assault rifle? You have to go pick it up.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not a true Splinter Cell game 6 Oct. 2011
Verified Purchase
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I have owned and enjoyed all the previous entries in the Splinter Cell Series but really this game is Splinter Cell in name only. Gone are your night vision googles and an emphisis on stealth. Instead you spend much of your time fighting the enemies instead of slipping past them like a ghost. Basically this is a third person shooter and a short one at that.
There are some nice touches like the execution mode, the overvall presentation and the excellent voice acting of Michael Ironside as Sam Fischer.
Overall this game's main failing is that is that it pretends to be a Splinter Cell game.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good, more action-oriented Splinter Cell 18 Jun. 2012
Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
The game is faster and more action-oriented than previous games in the series. Sam Fisher moves a lot faster through the world and noise works differently now. Instead of having a multitude of different speeds you could walk or sneak at and having missions play with how noise detection works, now you're always quiet if you sneak, even if you're still running around. Being hidden is also easier, since shadows that can hide you are now brighter. This also makes the game less dark and actually prevents you from playing it in night vision the entire game - although since you only get your goggles later, you can't anyway.
The new mark + kill mechanic works well. Overall the game feels more like a Bourne movie and Fisher really comes across like a super agent who can kill 5 people in mere seconds. It all looks and feels cool, although it's different from what the true stealth Splinter Cell once was.

5.0 out of 5 stars Splinter Cell Conviction... Excellent Game! 7 Aug. 2012
By MP38
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
At £00.98p + postage this game just had to be tried. I'd not played any Splinter Cell games before but have regularly played MOH series, Call of Duty, Brothers in Arms and Battlefield 2 games in Single Player mode. I enjoy a good Shoot'Em Up and Splinter Cell doesn't dissapoint. This game needs a little careful strategy and thinking to get right but it's worth it.
The Deniable Ops games are very challenging and addictive.
At £ 00.98p this is unbeatable value for money. If you see it, grab it quick
