Format Xbox 360 (PC from 30 April)
Just seconds in to Splinter Cell: Conviction,Sam Fisher (now older and angrier) is taking down hordes of bad guys and brutally torturing their leader. Freed from Third Echelon, gadgets and acrobatics are out and violent assassinations are definitely in – with a clever mark-and-execute trick enabling you to choreograph stunning take-downs in slow motion. Stealth and silence still play a part, of course, but this isn’t a game for patient SC purists. It’s far more playable and way too much fun.
