Ratings for Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Conviction

Rating Description
Presentation Stylish menus and cool projection technology make for a unique experience. The story is an amalgamation of different seasons of 24, but it's nice to see Sam so angry.
Graphics Nice animations. Gritty but good-looking environments. The framerate occasionally dips, but it's nothing major.
Sound Michael Ironside does a great job reprising his role as Sam Fisher. The enemies have some nice quips. Solid musical score.
Gameplay Stealth is fast and fun. Mark & Execute is a great addition. The AI is excellent if you play on Realistic difficulty.
Lasting Appeal The single-player and co-op campaigns are short, but there's a lot of other things to do. And you'll probably want to play through everything more than once.
