Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Blacklist
7 November 2013
Conclusion: Thankfully, the areas are relatively large and are fun to play out with a friend (also, no added stress of having to protect a generator this time round) Overall, if you're a fan of Splinter Cell, you've probably already picked this one up.
Conclusion: Splinter Cell Blacklis t is a good game. Actually it’s a great game. The action is tight, the missions are fun and customization is deep and varied. In a world were the independent game population is growing rapidly; it’s a great reminder of the epic scope and polish you can get from an AAA title.
Excerpt: Splinter Cell is one of those series that suffers through repetition. There are so many of the buggers, the most recent being the borderline-psychotic Conviction, that only the die-hard keep track, and to everyone else it’s one amorphous blob of banjo-legged throat-slitting.
Excerpt: Splinter Cell: Blacklist is a stealth game of the robust, rule-based kind, where each environment is a puzzle waiting to be cracked. You slip snake cameras under doors or use sonar vision to get the lay of the land.
Excerpt: I'll admit it, I was a bit skeptical going into Blacklist . As a jilted fan of the original stealth focused Splinter Cell (yes, I'm one of those), I was extremely let down by the action first style of games like Double Agent and Conviction .
Excerpt: A stealth game plays like an elaborately animated puzzle game — enemies are not just enemies but problems to be solved. They move about in a room where any given solution butts into a different problem, and so we make a level.
Excerpt: Splinter Cell: Blacklist Review Developer: Ubisoft Toronto Publisher: Ubisoft UK Price: £29.99 Platform(s): PC, X360, PS3 There comes a point in Blacklist when you realise Sam Fisher is one angry man.
Conclusion: Blacklist is a solid addition to the Splinter Cell series, a game that should wash away the bad taste left by Conviction and should make Sam Fisher an interesting character for a new generation of players.
Pros: + Stealth is back, + Integration between single and multiplayer, + Gameplay choices
Cons: - No character growth, - Cliche-filled story
