It was pretty much the same. People made judgements on the first footage they saw, first they were all happy to see something from Splinter Cell at all, but after analyzing the video and asking questions, pretty much everyone knew what was coming. They were pretty quick to ask back for some features which they haven't brought back. At that time there were enough Conviction supporters out there too and they told the other side (lol Darksiders and Lightsiders, how I hated that) they shouldn't judge the game so early and wait for the demo. When the demo was coming, the same was said, don't judge so early wait for the full game. But the people were right, from the beginning. The PR was just as contradictory and not trustworthy as it may (is already) happen(ing) in Blacklist.
