Splinter Cell Conviction is only a little over a month away before release on the Xbox 360 and PC. The game reinvents itself from the classic Splinter Cell gameplay with something entirely new and refreshing.
To be honest, the Splinter Cell series was getting pretty stagnate, with repetitive missions and lackluster story plots that seemed to get less relevant with each iteration. Ubisoft Montreal was all set to release the game back in 2007 when all of a sudden the studio delayed the game for two whole years.
I would have to say that the decision to delay the game was the smartest move Ubisoft has made. The 2007 build of the game was heading down the same path as the other incarnations of the series. However, the 2009 build of the game blew everyoneâ€™s expectations.
The game features climbing and targeting mechanics similar to that of the acclaimed Assassinâ€™s Creed II, and features a semi-open world. The game also features local split-screen and online co-op mode as well.
Aside from the features, the game looks well polished. The game is polished in the sense that it makes you want to meticulously sneak around executing all of your targets before they even realize you’re there.
You can look forward to Splinter Cell Conviction on Feb. 23 for the Xbox 360 and PC.
