Evening Reading: Evolving a Genre

Today's release of Splinter Cell: Conviction is an interesting one. The game is vastly different from previous entries in the franchise, with fast-paced stealth and new game mechanics like "Mark and Execute" and "Last Known Position" that make the player deadlier than ever.

As I discussed in my review, the game is very fun. The Sam Fisher of Conviction feels like the ultimate badass, but it doesn't feel like Splinter Cell. The game isn't much of a challenge and even on the highest difficulty, the AI isn't all that capable.
