I feel like the marketing for this is still working on the pretense that the game is out in march. At this rate they'll have a hard time maintaining an erection for two months. :O

Okay, that shit was officially awesome beyond words. Completely immersed gameplay that looks like cinematic sequences. Ubisoft, I think you've set yourself up for paradigm. Millions of copies will be sold.

You know, this game looks awesome and all, but I really dislike this big action blockbuster direction big games are taking.

Well, with the improvement in technology, it's pretty much a must that games start seeming more like big blockbusters.

Dumbass Big Shot - You can't touch me, I'm bulletproof!

Sam - Oh, really?

Me - LMFAO

Damn! Great trailer.

What a year man... especially for Xbox 360 owners.

Has it been confirmed if you can turn off those huge projector signs that tells you where to go and what to do in the game?

What's wrong with them? They're just mission objectives without any menus.

What I don't understand is why graphics are so lucklaster.

O...M....G! That was the best trailer I have ever seen....I was so into it because I know about the past games and such lol.

They're just distracting to me. For a game like this I don't need huge signs telling me where I need to go.

1:35 Anyone notice the 3rd person Modern Warfare-like scene after "Justice"? Is that a flashback to Sam's time in some war?

Lackluster, not lucklaster.

Anyway, the game looks average compared to the first three Splinter Cell games, so I'm just going to save my money for Perfect Dark XBLA.

I dont understand it either, the graphics look below average for a game this far into the current generation.

When I say action blockbuster I mean, cheap, cliched, over-stylized, over the top nonsense, that takes itself too seriously. To many "tv" explosions and dramatic one liners.

I felt MW2's single-player was a big victim of this, and because of this the pacing felt way off to me.

Why does Sam Fisher hold his gun in that particular form? Is that a standard military stance?

Thing is...most of the "action blockbuster" stuff that happens is just occasional and punctuates the gameplay with cool shit that's fun to watch. MW2's snowmobile section didn't have to happen, but it's a helluva lot more exciting than merely walking to an extraction point and getting debriefed(yay?).

Bring on the stylized(over-stylized? pfff), over-the-top, actiony explosions....or other forms of badassery...like shooting a dude in the knees. I don't want my games to mirror reality.

I don't mind the blockbusterfication so much if there's substance to the gameplay.

My main concern at this point is whether Sam is still Sam or not. I mean yaay, shooting guys and being all "whatever!" about it is, like, so awesome and all that, but underneath that better be Sam Fisher or I'll feel extremely cheated.

I've gotten shit for being concerned with character consistency before. I think Uncharted 2 is a train wreck for Nathan Drake's consistency, and I'd hate for this to be the same for Sam. I mean this is Sam Fisher who was deliberately made an "old timer" so that the zany, crazy action hero days were behind him. This is Sam, a person who has a very clear understanding of right and wrong, who is composed and professional. I get that this is about his daughter and that it's personal, but if the "awesome" killing to left and right gets too gratiutous and self indulgent, it's an extreme disconnect for me.

I remember back in.. was it Pandora Tomorrow? You have a contact that you meet up with, and as you're exiting in an elevator, Lambert goes "shoot her, Sam!", and whether you do or not - your choice - Sam clearly objects to Lambert, questioning if it was really necessary. There are numerous examples of this littered throughout the series, meant to enforce the stealth gameplay obviously, but subsequently also dictated the character.

Conviction better not just use his daughter as a device to throw that character trait out the window. The world doesn't need yet ANOTHER coldhearted videogame badass murdering hordes of "enemies".

To me, it seems they struggled to make something mainstream out of Splinter Cell, they first went with Sam Fisher as Jason Bourne and social stealth, when thay failed with that they switched to SF as Jack Bauer and straightforward killing. Not sure if I like that, but we'll see.

Now, where did i see that begining before? Hmmm. :) This game is for ( SIR YES SIR !!! )empty headed type of players. It has Holywood style scenario that makes me vomit. Take time in your life with this poor game.

    alimokrane @asdfg: By comfortable, I meant for my eyes not in the sense that horror games should be comfortable and less scary. I loved how scary/jumpy it was. It would have been just as scary in 3rd personview. (44 minutes ago)
