Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Conviction Now Backward Compatible

Pretty much anytime a new Tom Clancy game comes out, I am first in line to buy it and the Splinter Cell series is no different. So when I heard that Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Conviction was backward compatible, I thought you should know about it as well in case you’re as big a fan of TC as I am!

“Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell: Conviction is the fifth installment in the wildly popular Splinter Cell series. A stealth-action combat game centered around the continuing adventures of black ops agent Sam Fisher, Splinter Cell: Conviction continues where the storyline of the earlier Splinter Cell: Double Agent left off. Packed with a mix of an engaging story, classic Splinter Cell stealth action, unique co-op gameplay and new gameplay mechanisms that are applicable to both single player and multiplayer modes, it is a worthy addition Splinter Cell catalog of games.”

When Splinter Cell Conviction first came out back in 2010 (wow!) it was pretty much given about the scores you would expect from an FPS with Tom Clancy’s named attached to it – 8.5s and 9’s down the board. The only ones who really, I think, didn’t give it a fair chance were GameSpot who gave it a 6.5 out of 10 for PC and an 8/10 for Xbox 360 and Euro gamer who gave it a 7 out of 10 for the Xbox 360.

In terms of sales for Splinter Cell Conviction in 2010, it also had some pretty good sales achievements as well; 486,000 copies of the game were sold in April 2010 in the U.S., which made it the best-selling game for that month. As of July 2010, the game has sold 1.9 million copies on PC and Xbox 360.

If you’ve never played Splinter Cell Conviction, now is the time to get into it. A lot of these old games that are becoming backward compatible are available for cheap.

Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Conviction on Amazon, for example, is available for $15. $15!!!
