I'm new here and I'm sure I'll get insulted for this topic, but I don't care. Guys, jeez who cares if conviction or blacklist is different from the old splinter cells? In case you hadn't noticed, games aren't a service, they are a business. If there's something they need to do to get more sales, by God they'll do it! Not only that, but we don't live in 2005 anymore, the world has changed alot in seven years. Don't u think sans world would too? I understand u guys miss the old days, but u hav a time machine and it's called the ORIGINAL XBOX and your favorite game, most likely chaos theory. The game isn't GONE, you still have it. PLAY it don't hate on Ubisoft for trying to keep things fresh. I have played every single SplinterCell except essentials and while they were fun AT THAT TIME, I still ore ordered blacklist. I loved conviction, and blacklist will be even better. If u guys don't like it, fine, but don't send 20 page long "lectures" to Ubisoft telling them off and cussing them out for changing the game. Everything changes over time. Including your precious 7 yr old games and their series. Ithink Ubisoft is doing an amazingly awesome job with splinter crll. Ubisoft if u read this just know u still have people who appreciate u. Wanna tell me off? Fine. All comments are welcome.
