Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Blacklist
24 September 2013
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. But like many AAA games, it feels slightly soulless and a little too sterile.
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. You find yourself in a corridor: your sonar tells you there’s a guard coming around the corner and another one in the room off to the right.
Excerpt: Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell series was once the number one choice for stealth aficionados, but with each subsequent success has come a desire to attract new audiences. Splinter Cell: Conviction was the most recent and exceedingly bold attempt to appeal to a more action-oriented crowd, abandoning the carefully structured and methodical pacing of series highlight Chaos Theory , and adopting a frenetic style where bullets reigned over the auspicious use of shadows.
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. Longtime fans of the series can always return to the classic titles in the franchise, but younger players have access to solid stealth based gameplay, as long as they are willing to deal with the learning curve, while also being able to move into assault mode in order...
Summary: While some players embraced the tectonic shift in tone and direction that Ubisoft Montreal settled on for 2010’s Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell: Conviction, the majority of hardened Sam Fisher followers lamented the blatant eschewing of the series more pulse-pounding stealth mechanics in favour of a somewhat clumsy attempt to weave the fan favourite character into a series of Jason Bourne-inspired moments.
Summary: Blacklist should be the best Splinter Cell yet, but it’s held back by some unperceptive AI, the odd gameplay quirk, and a sub-par story. Even so, it’s still a great game, and both those put off by or attracted to Conviction ’s action focus will find much to love here.
Pros: Marvellous level design, fluid animations, and compelling yet slightly flawed gameplay. Fantastic multiplayer options in both co-op and Spies vs Mercs.
Cons: The AI is a bit limited, not persistent enough, and occasionally very exploitable. Fisher’s controls in cover are too loose.
Summary: Embora Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell: Blacklist tenha seus defeitos (alguns deles mais graves que os outros), ainda assim a nova aventura de Sam Fisher faz jus à série. Ao mesmo tempo em que marca um retorno às origens furtivas da franquia, o game permite que você continue atuando de maneira agressiva sem que isso vá trazer consequências negativas à sua experiência.
Infelizmente, alguns pontos fazem com que a experiência não seja exatamente aquela que estávamos esperando.
Summary: Splinter Cell: Blacklist пытается учесть пожелания фанатов и сыграть немного на стороне Mass Effect со свободной миссионой структурой и большим количеством стелса. Но многие поклонники серии наверняка останутся недовольны изменившимся внешним видом Сэма Фишера и его новым стилем супергероя (который проявляет человеческую слабость только в звонках дочери), не говоря уже о вставках отсылающих к Uncharted и Call of Duty .
Conclusion: Splinter Cell: Blacklist ist wieder ein richtiges Splinter Cell! Die Stealth-Action steht wieder im Vordergrund und ihr werdet großen Spaß haben mit Sam durch die Level zu schleichen und Gegner auszutricksen. Lediglich die patriotische und wenig exklusive Story wird nicht jedem gefallen. Dafür gibt es aber noch einen unterhaltsamen Multiplayer-Part mit oben drauf. Stealth-Fans können ohne Bedanken zugreifen.
