Best Xbox 360 Game
It says something about the quality of the Xbox 360 lineup at E3 when a new entry in the Halo series (Halo 3: ODST) isn't the system's biggest game at the show. It says even more about how impressed we were with Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Conviction for it to win our Best Xbox 360 Game award. Of course, we were excited at the prospect of just having a new Splinter Cell game, but Conviction leaps far beyond that designation, acting more as a reinvigorating reboot to a series that fans might have become just a little too familiar with over the years.
Just about every facet of Splinter Cell has been tweaked or reworked for Conviction. The new, angrier, and out-for-revenge Sam Fisher now moves faster and with even deadlier precision, relying on his ability to kill a man in any number of ways (and as quickly as possible) as opposed to relying solely on the slower, more methodical stealth approach. Even the narrative delivery has changed: objectives and brief videos are projected on objects in the environment, keeping you creatively immersed in the experience as Sam moves from one mission to the next.
Flash Player 9 is required to watch this video.
Fisher himself says in the E3 demo, "The Sam Fisher you know is dead." Quite frankly, we couldn't be happier about it.
Finalists: Best Xbox 360 Game
damn this game looks awesome. its like assassins creed with guns and more gadgets and stuff. definitely saving up for this.
Why am i not convinced that the PC version is going to be released the same date as the 360 version in April?
And also at Tuppe666 that was not a civilian it was a guard that looked like a civilian, you could tell by his earpiece and over-confident stance.
this is going to be the first splinter cell game i will ever enjoy i dont mean that the other ones were bad they were a bit more hard and no co-op i think this one is going to be awsome!!!!!!GOOD JOB UBISOFT!!
I think I am most excited for this game out of any yet annonced. I love how Sam has a different attitude and is all old school low-tech. The bag he is carrying on his back looks like is a 5.11 select carry pack, I have one for my bug out bag and pistol. This looks much better then the previous Splinter Cell, cannot wait until 2010 for this.
Considering all the strees Sam's been put through in his life, shouldn't his hair be gray by now? Isn't he like 45?
Looks incredible, they've done a pretty great job of introducing "new" to an "old" formula, one to watch for for sure.
ive been playing splinter cell since the first one came out and conviction looks like its gonna top them all. awesome vid!
Man, I've been playing the first game and this takes the character and stretches him in a lot of different directions, I like it.
Looks really good. The gunplay seems to be a lot more realistic and brutal which is something the previous ones lacked. I'm assuming the white half circle when entering into a gun battle is showing the most immediate threat. I'm wondering how the CQC works, it looks scripted depending on context. Don't know how about projecting objectives on walls either, seems to be a bit of a distraction. Otherwise this is looking very promising. Here's to hoping.
I'm so glad it's going somewhat multiplatform, with the PC and all. It's a shame I won't get the Bed&Breakfast treatment the 360 users will. But I'll still play it on mah beastly gaming rig.
I've been looking forward to this for two years. Just found out there was footage of the polished version from E3. Can't wait to play this!
