I tried playing conviction just like the classics, holstering my weapon, and just doing hand to hand take downs, taking my time, and stalking in the shadows, and I found it to be more fun then just run and gunning.
Snitsky's Condoms. If she get's pregnant, it's not your fault.
Sadly most people who've played it aren't willing to play it like this, they see it as "OK this game feels like I should go in full on assault mode so I'm going to do that and nothing else." instead of playing it how they want and the majority of those people don't realize that the mark and execute feature is completely optional outside of the two points where you absolutely have to do it.

Whenever I play Conviction I essentially never restrict myself. With that being said I never go out full action. nor do I use unsuppressed weapons. Whenever I do strike I want it to be so fast and effective that the enemy doesn't have time to react before they're all dead. I have played it before where I sneak past as many people as I can, but it never feels as satisfying as the other games were...
Many people wrote off Conviction as being too easy and a big "sell out" for main stream audiences. This is very narrow minded and shallow thinking - all you have to do is be creative and think outside of the box.
For example - ghost all the maps to the back in Infiltration mode with the "No Gadgets" option = On using just your eyes and ears to locate laser sources with no distractions - very intense old school game play.
Chaos Theory was my favorite game of all time until I realized the endless amount of ways I could play the Hunter/Infiltration modes on Conviction - Blacklist will be expanding the ghost aspect so it will be even better. .
Hitman:Absolution is a brilliant game and the Contracts mode reminds me of the Hunter/Infiltration modes of Conviction.
I have played some of the most creative contracts and enjoy the ones which are more like puzzles rather than just shooting people. I love playing Purist as well without disguises as the intensity is what I thrive on.
I also enjoy creating contracts which are brainteasers and you can usually see those who have figured out the strategy by the wide margin between scores.
Splinter Cell will always be the crown jewel in my eyes but Absolution definitely helps keep the time go by quicker until Blacklist and having the contracts mode makes it one of my top games of all time. .
