I read on Major Nelson that they're finally honoring the Splinter Cell Conviction beta access that was promised back when that game came out in 2010, and I popped my disc in and downloaded it.
After playing a fair amount, it's pretty cool. It's not dumbed-down as I was fearing from past Ghost Recon games, and feels appropriately unforgiving. The one thing I have a problem with are the menus. Despite LOOKING pretty cool, they're pretty confusing and cumbersome to use, especially when picking a loadout. I'm definitely looking forward to playing some more of this game when it comes out if it's worth a purchase.
So yeah, in case any of you Conviction players forgot(which I wouldn't blame you for), go try out the Beta, it's pretty cool that they are actually honoring the promotion.
