Splinter Cell: Conviction Discussion
If you buy this game you will be disappointed so don't fall for the hype and waste your money like I did. There are some decent moments in this game but for the headache of dealing with the DRM (which slows the game down as your saves are recorded to UBI servers -which are down half the time), and the sloppy graphics and sound (sounds crackle and get distorted and the shadows are jagged as hell), it's not worth your money! Even when you pan around Sam in the game you can see how distorted his features are. Even double-agent was better graphically!
UBIsoft had YEARS to perfect this series and get it back on track since the double-agent disaster but they must have been spending that time developing this new DRM crap that everyone hates. Now they've jacked their price tag up to boot to pay off all the geniuses that came up with this crappy DRM design. UBI really needs to go back to its roots and start all over again.
It's really beginning to upset me since I used to love all UBI games!
Might as well load up the original games and play them for another 4 years while UBI figures out a way to release another Splinter Cell disaster for us suckers to buy!

This game is epic, and the graphics don't suck at all, maybe you need a better comp. And the sound was also great on my end (again.. you need a better comp i guess?)
I had no trouble with DRM at all, and never slowed my game down. It never felt like i was playing a movie at all.. And not too flame or anything, but that IS how games play.. you push button, your char does something...
And how is this a Console port..? None of the controls felt off at all. But i am a pc gamer at heart so maybe thats why lol. As for the stealth combat, it was great. The "last known loc." thing is sweet, and very helpful. And the M&E in the game was sooooo sweet wish i remembered too use it more though lol.
All in all though, this game is great...
Let's try to keep it civil, people.

srsly.. get a better computer then. Nothing is Jagged, or anything man. Really, Stop useing a 25 year old computer lol? and actually, you CAN holster you weapon. maybe if you spent more time playing the game, and less time *****ing about it, you'd know that. but hey, to each their own right? What Game version are you useing? Steam, or CD?
Cos, when i start my game, i see a menu.. which i can use my mouse too "point and click" at an option.. no "scrolling" like on a console(port). None of my menus or ANYTHING has anything related too a console.
From the demo i played on 360 gfx looks great, and the way it fades over into black and white when you are hidden, and full of color when in the open, i think that is a great thing compared to the light meter and sound meter we had before.
The get caught aspect was anoying at times, in this one line of sight, and get behind the targets that is a great feature, but i do get the feeling it is not the good old sam fisher play through.
What we need to remember is splinter cell from the first game and through the series has evolved quite a bit, and this is in my oppinion just another evolution of splinter cell.

but I have seen videos and the game to me looks awesome. Besides I like that they changed the game up a bit. I don't like games that are linear, only can get one way through the mission, I like games that you can have multiple possibilities to complete your mission. I was totally disappointed by Battle Field Bad Company 2. The graphics in that game were awesome, but the game play didn't impress me to much. there was only a certain way that you could complete your mission. Which makes the game to linear.
