Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Conviction sees Sam Fisher return, but he's not playing the good guy any more. Gaming's most dangerous super spy has quit working for the Third Echelon, disgusted by his old department's corruption and distraught over the loss of his daughter. When he discovers her death was no accident he begins to track down those responsible…

Now that he's on his own and out for revenge there's less emphasis on stealth and more on all out action and unrestricted body counts. Environments are more interactive too, with almost any object ready to be used as a weapon. Plus you can climb onto and around almost every piece of architecture to set-up your ambushes.

Obligatory DRM warning - it has Ubi's DRM of choice requiring a permanent internet connection to play a single player game. Best to avoid and send them a clear message that we won't put up with DRM like this. People who pirate it actually have a better experience, and thus it is only the legit purchasers that suffer.

It really annoys me when companies do this. Protect your assets, yes, but this is stupid.

Paying customer - jump through loads of hoops; if anything in the chain breaks, no game. And they charge you for the potential lack of game.
Downloader - no problems, instant play. Free.

Which one looks more appealing? Throw money away on a game that won't allow you to play it, or pay nothing and have the best experience playing it?

From a business point of view it's suicidal too, and sales figures are showing - people are voting with their wallets. I was really looking forward to this game (and Assassin's Creed 2 for that matter), but I'll have to wait until they remove their stupid DRM.
