Splinter Cell: Conviction Behind Closed Doors Part 1: Redefining Splinter Cell

Here’s the first part in a new “Behind Closed Doors” diary series on Splinter Cell: Conviction. In it Ubisoft talks about how Conviction redefines the Splinter Cell stealth experience with a new action-oriented “Prepare, Execute and Vanish” play style and accompanying mechanics like “mark and execute” quick kills and a “last known position” feature that pops up a ghostly figure of Sam at the last position the enemies saw him at. Pretty sweet stuff, I just hope all of these things don’t streamline the gameplay too much.
