    **MacWorld: “The strategies of Splinter Cell Conviction have real potential for depth and variety—already this title looks like more than your typical third-person shooter
    on your iPhone.”

    Fans of the series who have missed out on Splinter Cell Conviction will not be disappointed by this sophisticated gaming experience for their iDevice.

    Splinter Cell Conviction may not live up to what its name might cause you to expect at times, but judged on its own, this is a solid action game with light stealth elements and fantastic graphics.

    Splinter Cell Conviction might have been the best action experience on iPhone and iPod Touch, but unfortunately it's just a good game. It tries to reply all the ideas of the PC and console version, but it does it badly. The game saves itself thanks to its stunning graphics, wide-ranging environments and many levels, as well as its very rewarding stealth moments.

    Ultimately, I enjoyed Conviction and action gamers will, too. But temper those expectations. And maybe wait for a sale.
  5. Feb 22, 2011
    I was driven to madness by a helicopter on the second to last level, but for the most part the game is not all so difficult. Gamers that want a decent 6 hour adventure should consider Conviction.

    Splinter Cell: Conviction's fiddly controls and technical quirks spoil an otherwise pacy and entertaining action-stealth game.
  7. Feb 22, 2011
    While it does feel Gameloft took a small leap backwards in terms of technological achievement, Splinter Cell Conviction is still a solid game that is enough to have some hours of fun.

    If like me you have waited for a decent title in the stealth/shooter genre for your iDevice, then you might consider buying Splinter Cell: Conviction. This game is identical to its console brethren only on your iDevice. The visuals look very nice, especially if you have an iPhone. Gameplay is mostly stealth, but you can be trigger happy. All and all, this is one great title! Expand

    It's fun, graphics are pretty good, but some things feel awkard. The shooting feels very awkward. I find myself doing only melee becuase the shooting just doesn't work right. but overall it's pretty fun. Expand
