Wish I knew. Much rage was (and is) expressed over at the Eidos forums about it.

Still, should be a good game.

Isn't the whole point of the games to mostly use stealth whenever possible?

I like sneaking around! :D

if the game wanted me to be stealthy it shouldnt give me a rocket launcher and a heavy machine gun

I'm pretty sure the whole 'KILL EVERYTHING RAR!' strategy doesn't work so well on the higher difficulties, where like 2 shots kill you.

All the old THPS games had awesome soundtracks. I even digged most of the hiphop tracks.

Trying to get my snes to work on my TV is doing my head in. It needs to be manually tuned in but my TV is all digital-HD-auto-tune-freeview-shit.

Also, Conviction is a terrible stealth game compared to earlyer Splinter Cells, seeing as Sam Fisher and Jack Bauer are now the same person. But still a good game generally.

Was he loyal to you? Or did you have him do anything special? I had everyone survive on mine.
