How to redeem '3rd Echelon' map - [DEPRECATED; GAMESPOT REMOVED THE PAGE]
UPDATE: I'm sorry to inform you that GameSpot has removed SCC Event page. It probably occured during their upgrade to the new layout and design, therefore you are no longer able to redeem the serial key for "3rd Echelon" map anymore.
Here I will gu
A great game but lack of stealth element that Splinter Cell series have. Story is interesting, and Sam's voice actor is still Michael Ironside, who fits Sam Fisher more in my opinion. Gameplay is fun, checkpoint is a disgusting system though. You are not going to play this game if you seek a stealth game like Blacklist. Graphics is a bit older( I don't care though) , but you can't blame it because it is 2010 game. Personal Rating: 7.5/10
This game is the first Splinter Cell game I ever played, as a first note. It's also probably one of the first games that truly made me spend so much time playing them, redo-ing the same missions over and over until I got them absolutely perfect (hand-to-hand killing every single person in the mission). The campaign in this game was very good and the co-op was probably the best in the series, all things considered.
To be started, I know some people are bashing the game for taking Splinter Cell out of the traditional methodical route it always liked to linger in. It was certainly a change for the series versus the games that came before it, not only because it was the first which emphazised action instead of stealth but also the brand new Mark & Execute feature, which was highly controversial at the time.
The settings are good, the story felt true to a Splinter Cell game (think Hitman: Absolution - Sam Fisher goes rogue) and the narrative which leads up to the very last cutscene all made it make sense at the very end. While Splinter Cell might not have the weight of games like The Last of Us, this one certainly (for me at least) was the most story-driven in the series. You need to decide for you: is this a good thing or a bad thing?
In all, Splinter Cell Conviction made moves that defied it's original routes in a stealth-based environment. I think that it was a welcome change to the series, and certainly was a fun and rewarding game at the time. I occasionally still play it to this day, with friends for Deniable Ops.
