Conviction is amazing, I've already done 9 playthroughs, 3 for each difficulty. And trust me, it doesn't seem to get old.

Conviction is an absolute joke if you're looking for gameplay like the previous entries. Blacklist is better, but still nowhere near as good as something like Chaos Theory.

Using a bow sure has its drawbacks. :V

I had fun with Conviction though people who loved Chaos Theory aren't usually big fans

Blacklist is supposedly better (I just got it myself) by combining the good things from the older games and Conviction

Both are great, though they deviate from the older Splinter Cell games a lot.
So if you're a Splinter Cell purist, stay away, if you like fun games, get them.

Blacklist is great, possibly the best in the series. Conviction...not so much.

This, basically. Purists are a**holes anyways (even though Chaos Theory is the best Splinter Cell game.)

Conviction is fun, just as said dont approach it like a traditional SC. its coop is a blast, but its campaign is quite short(5-ish hours), tho pretty replayable. at its price now its worth it.

Blacklist imo is one of the best games of last generation. It combines Convictions more smooth gameplay and mechanics with the older games' sense of traversal and "exploration". extremely replayable and has atleast 3-4x the amount of content of conviction.

Sweet thanks guys. Both look like fun plays and for 25 you can't go wrong. I should play conviction then blacklist in that order right?

Have the other 3 games aged well?
