I just wanted to know, everyone that got the chance to play Conviction, did you really not enjoy the game because it wasn't like the originals, or was there another reason? Or did you love it? For me personally, when I first had popped it in the 360 when it came out, I was somewhat disappointed in it at the very first, and all I kept thinking was "Well, it's a great shooter, but why is it a shooter?" And then later on, till this day, I absolutely love the way Conviction plays (aside from the Coste mission), and while I wouldn't despise it going back to the way the older games played, 'cause those were great, I wouldn't really hope for it to go back.
Conviction ended up being one of my favorite games in 2010, and it's one of those games I'll go back to playing again and again without hesitation. There are problems with it, but improving on what made Conviction great, and the stuff that held it slightly back, is the next step into making one of my favorite games ever made. I hope going into the sequel, the game's longer, it gets rid of the way the story is told (I'm sick of characters being interrogated and telling a story along the way), and hopefully the game's told more inside the game play, kind of like Dead Space, rather than pre-rendered cut-scenes to break up moments. Well, maybe not like Dead Space since Sam or some other character-to-be globe trots, but I don't like the pre-rendered cut-scene approach. I don't dislike the story at all, just the way its told since it kind of makes it slightly less interesting to pay attention to.
