[Sam Fisher]Been playing Splinter Cell: Conviction the last few days whenever I get the chance, which unfortunately hasn’t been often, seeing as how I lead a very busy life and all! However the bit I have played of this game is incredible! It’s fun, it’s Exciting, It’s Sam Fisher! I mean, how can you go wrong?!

I could sing the praises of this game for hours and not run out of good things to say about it, but I should try and focus on both pros as well as Cons. So, let me try coming up with some complaints.

Ok, the game DOES take some getting used to, especially if you are a hardcore fan of the Splinter Cell game series. Sam Fisher no longer can wedge himself between walls and attack from above. You also are not able to drag bodies into the shadows to avoid detection. In fact, while the game does require a certain amount of sneaking around, the stealth component doesn’t seem to be as strong in this chapter of the splinter cell saga as it was in previous episodes. In fact, at least one episode is pure run and gun. That particular level, stealth is completely out the window.

The game also features a co-op set of levels, which is a totally different set of missions than the Sam Fisher storyline. However, I have yet to play the Co-op story, because to be honest, I suck at co-op! I’m not very helpful, and I tend to get all uncomfortable. I am so much better at shooting other players than helping them!

That being said, over all the game is fantastic! definitely something you should check out. Was it worth the long wait? Well, I think years of being pushed back was a bit ridiculous, but the game I think in the end was worth the wait. Especially those graphics! They are incredible, and if you are as much a graphic whore as I am, then you need to get the game just for the graphics alone!
