Splinter Cell: Conviction chronicles the latest adventures of Splinter Cell protagonist Sam Fisher. Cohen&Nielsen's suspenseful score accompanies Fisher's calculated steps as the gameplay unfolds.“It's the most definitive music I have heard to date for the series. I would go so far to call it 'classic Splinter Cell,'” says Simon Pressey, Ubisoft Montreal’s Technical&Artistic Director of Audio.

Groove Addicts' Zarin concurs,”We are ecstatic to be involved with this incredible Ubisoft AAA franchise. The fact that this is our first game says a lot about the caliber of music we at Groove Addicts work so very hard to deliver everyday.
