I knew it was gonna be s**t. You don't leave a launch game review until launch day unless your hiding something.

No surprises here, although I would have liked Ubisoft to back up their claim that unreal engine is doable on 3DS.

There's aways going to be stinkers in the launch line up and I'm definitely not going to gamble with lazy looking ports.

Do not tar Ghost Recon with the same brush as Splinter Cell. Recon is easily one of the best 3DS games available, and we recommend you all go and buy it now.

ghost recon seems to be getting the best reviews out of the 3DS launch games.

looks like I'll be sticking with PilotWings, Ridge Racer and Nintendogs

I'm going to guess Ubisofts other title, Ghost Recon suffers a similar fate as this?

EDIT: Oops should have read the above comments before, I'll check GR out :lol:

well, I bought it And I think it's very well thought out. the controls are easy to get your head round, the graphics are OK and the 3D adds an extra element that wouldn't normally be there. People down a corridor now look like they're down a corridor. I think you're being a bit harsh. I give it 7/10

What have they done to my beloved Chaos Theory? Why, Ubisoft, why? Surely Conviction lends itself to a quick fix of fun.

If you're interested, the soundtrack is out, it's by Amon Tobin, it's digital DL only and it's very good. One good thing should come out of this.
Bring back Super Skidmarks. Cow racing FTW.

GODDAMMIT

I knew it was bad news that Splinter Cell wasn't reviewed before release. I thought 'screw it' and took the plunge. It's truly a horrible, laggy mess. At least it's not buggy... yet...
I love the taste of Pikmin in the morning.

That's what happens when a team only gets less than two months to port a game. Hope it bombs.
