I played the demo and liked what they did with the franchise, so I got it today. I'll let you know what I think of it when I get a chance to play

Is anyone else planning on picking it up? I really want to play the coop mode.

I picked it up today. At first I thought the "text on walls" effect was annoying, but I grew to like it. Also, the co-op mode is a nice return to the co-op mode they introduced in Pandora Tomorrow and later dropped for some unexplained reason.

It is odd to have to use guns so much in a Splinter Cell game. But, it is pretty fun so far.

I picked it up yesterday too. I think it is pretty kickass so far, but I understand that the bread and butter is the coop, which i haven' tried yet. Looks like everyone ended up buying this.

I'm really enjoying it. I like the totally pissed off, kill everybody Sam Fisher. I've enjoyed the SC series from the start, but I think I'm done with the trial and error, instant-lose if you get caught mechanic, which is why this game delivered for me. It feels more like Rainbow 6 terrorist hunt than a stealth game mainly because I tended to kill everybody rather than sneak by. Even if I did manage to sneak by a group of guys, I'd usually just turn around and snipe them with that suppressed MP5 w/scope (my favorite). I wasn't sold on the wall text at first, but quickly grew to like it. Aside from helping move the gameplay along, it makes the game itself stand out.

Definitely looking forward to some co-op and whatever else we can do multiplayer-wise.

Sure way for me to tell how much I like a game is if I am still awake after 1AM because I "just want to see what the next level is like". Yea I went to bed at like 145 on Saturday night. Bad idea when you have the early shift with the kids on Sunday morning at 630.

I forgot to mention, be sure to check the game every Thursday for free stuff. Last Thursday was an automatic pistol thingie. I'm not sure if the things remain available after the initial day, but I got the impression they wouldn't be.

It's nice that your collected weapons are available in subsequent playthroughs. I'm playing through again now on Realistic and it's not too hard. You die quickly if they get a sustained bead on you, but so far I'm cruising through the levels.

Yeah, the hardest part I found on realistic was when you enter the third echelon lobby. Took me many o' tries to get that one right. The worst part was the unskippable cutscene at the lobby desk.

Yeah, I saw that cutscene quite a few times even on Normal. Each time I was itching to light up that snotty receptionist with an MP5.

Here's the page: http://g2w.ubi.com/splinter-cell-conviction/match/en/

It's not entirely intuitive getting there from the main site. You need to click on SC Match, their matchmaking offering from the main site which takes you to the above link.
