Splinter Cell Conviction rated in the UK

BBFC approve the game for UK release

The BBFC has now issued their certification for Splinter Cell Conviction.

Sam Fisher's latest title has been given a 15 rating which is the same as his last outing in Double Agent.

This was a surprise as it was almost certain that the violent content would have landed the game an 18 certificate.

This is the second act of generosity from the BBFC this year after they handed Heavy Rain a 15 certificate despite it containing alleged scenes of rape.

Splinter Cell Conviction will be out on PC and Xbox 360 some time in April, once Ubisoft have given it a final spit-shine.
