If you enjoyed Splinter Cell: Conviction then this game is for you. Most of the previous games mechanics are present here from the executions to the "last known location silhouettes". Definitely worth a rent although it wont blow you away.

The good:
The story is actually very good. A terrorist organization tell the US government to withdraw all troops in foreign countries or it will continue with a series of attacks on US soil.

The new play style rating systems add a new incentive to how you approach each mission. Ghost (stealth), Panther (stalk & kill), and Assault (guns blazing).

The bad:
Some clunky menus and convoluted upgrade system make time not spent in missions a chore.

Some side missions cannot be completed without help from a coop partner.

The game difficulty is fairly easy on the normal setting.

Summary:
If you like Splinter Cell then this game is a no-brainer. Its got a cool story and the way that you can approach each mission however you want makes each mission feel different. It absolutely deserves a spot on your GameQ.

If you played the splinter cell games and was a fan of any one of those. This will be a great play, cause it brings the classic yet new elements to this game. Conviction with the black and white style of atmosphere is not present in this one. The difficulty is there and the map layouts are pretty well thought out especially in the story and the side missions are very cool as well. The online was great and added more fun to the game especially when doing waves. Like I said, If you like splinter cell in general, you'll definitely dig this one. Rent it. I'm renting it for a second time and I might just keep it. I replayed missions over and over cause they're fun to just take different approaches to and routes. I never write reviews but this game deserves one. Rent or Buy. Either is a excellent choice. But try at least :)

Just like all the other Splinter Cell games this one was very fun to play. The side missions are cool to give you something to do after you beat the game. Campaign was a little short but I do like the idea of being able to play the game with a friend online. However, I'm not a big fan of how some of the missions can only be done with a teammate. When I tried to play online there just aren't enough people playing the game to connect with. Huge selections of weapons and gear and customizing. I give the game a solid 8. Worth the rent and maybe the buy at only $14.99. Replay value is pretty low once you beat it.
