Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Blacklist
20 August 2013
Excerpt: The light, it burns! Tom Clancy's penchant for global political intrigue and a world constantly on the brink of collapse has paid off in spades for Ubisoft, who've mined a decade of entertaining video games off the pseudo-futurism military jingo that serves to push players from one objective to the next. The spawn of these two was Splinter Cell .
Summary: On the whole, Splinter Cell: Conviction is an impressive reinvention of a classic series. Mixing stealth and guns-a-blazing action is a tricky balancing act, and much of the time, Conviction pulls it off. The question, then, is whether or not you actually wanted Splinter Cell to change in the first place.
Pros: Engaging, well-designed levels; new techniques that reinvent combat.
Cons: Perhaps a bit action-heavy; later portions of the game are glorified shoot-outs.
Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Conviction - Deniable Ops Insurgency Pack
4 June 2010
Conclusion: It's too bad that disastrous online issues cheapen what should have been a great value for Splinter Cell fanatics. Nevertheless, $9.99 still gets you four quality levels that are fun to investigate even when you must rely only on yourself to complete the mission. That's a bit much to ask considering the troublesome online play, but the maps are still good enough to make the Deniable Ops Insurgency Pack worthy of your consideration.
Pros: Four intricate, three-part maps can be used in three different modes, The levels capture the character of their American settings, The map complexity makes Face-Off mode a ton of fun.
Cons: Broken matchmaking means you may never play these maps online, The AI is too easy to exploit.
Conclusion: As close to a cinematic experience as we have seen in gaming. It is a great addition to the franchise and a welcome change to the by the number stealth and action games, existing somewhere in between the two genres and doing so with absolute confidence.
Conclusion: The main goal was to appeal to a wider audience; that much is obvious. As a result, emphasis was put on co-op and multiplayer. Then again, we are certain that a great number of gamers will still buy Splinter Cell: Conviction for its single-player mode. As it stands, if you decide to go solo, you'll find that the gameplay is really fun, but as soon as the end credits start rolling, you're gonna want your money back.
Pros: Sam Fisher's intriguing backdrop and fine characterization kept us going through the main story, although it's the outstanding art direction, cool soundtrack and powerful voice acting of folks like Michael Ironside that convey a fitting sense of immersion, the new cover mechanics work smoothly and represent a great addition to the gameplay, the new stylish takedowns are a superb addition to coop play and multiplayer in general, well-balanced and responsive AI;
Cons: Most of the good stuff about this game won't matter to a lot of people because it's over very quickly (the story is good but won't take more than 5 hours to beat), while I did enjoy every mode available, there's little in here that moves the series forward.
Excerpt: We've said it before and we'll say it again...Sam Fisher is back. Like Bond, this guy never seems to get knocked down for long. After the death of his daughter in the last game, you'd think he'd be all apprehensive about sticking with the spy stuff, but apparently that's not the case, as he's back in Splinter Cell: Conviction.
Summary: Splinter Cell: Conviction se convierte, por méritos propios, en el mejor título de la franquicia aparecidos hasta el momento. Su apartado gráfico brilla con maestría, su jugabilidad está muy bien implementada y la historia resulta atractiva a la par que vibrante. Aunar conceptos propios del cine de acción europeo con el sentido del espectáculo norteamericano dan como fruto un delicioso plato que gustará a todos aquellos que quieran disfrutar mientras se comen unas...
Pros: - Genial apartado gráfico., - Buena jugabilidad., - Protagonista con carisma., - Momentos sorprendentes., - El modo cooperativo., - Las brutales secuencias de interrogatorio.
Cons: - Escasa duración del modo principal., - La IA de los enemigos., - Que el multijugador sólo sea para dos usuarios.
Summary: Удивительно, но Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Blacklist оказался тем, чего от него мало кто ожидал – грамотным симбиозом наработок «старых» и «новых» частей серии. Это стильный, продуманный и четкий стэлс экшен, каких давно уже не выходило. Авторы смогли удержать баланс между сложностью и интересом, верностью традициям и новаторским подходом, тем самым создав продукт, способный не только удовлетворить «старых» поклонников серии, но и заинтересовать новую аудиторию.
