Splinter Cell Blacklist Review

GamerNode

  • Summary: Splinter Cell Blacklist won't revolutionize the genre, but it's still an enjoyable third-person action shooter worthy of the franchise name. The campaign is alright, but the excellent multiplayer picks up the slack.
  • Pros: Spies vs. Mercs is incredible, Multi-faceted approach to campaign missions
  • Cons: Same old story, different settings, Same old dialogue, different setting

  • Summary: A solid game that definitely has an audience. Might lack replay value, could be too short or there are some hard-to-ignore faults, but the experience is fun. How we score: The Destructoid Reviews Guide

  • Excerpt: Let me get this out of the way, right off the bat shall we? Sam Fisher is back, do not adjust your sound settings. This is Sam Fisher. This is the first Splinter Cell, from my memory anyway, where Canadian Actor Michael Ironside is not the voice of Sam Fisher.

  • Conclusion: The best Splinter Cell in a long time. It has much more content than you’ll find in most AAA releases these days and should be played.
  • Pros: New playstyle-centric approach to gameplay is welcome, Spies vs Mercs is awesome as usual, Co-op is actually not bad, which is uncommon in video games
  • Cons: Sam Fisher, Graphics are not what I’d expect from a Splinter Cell, Some SvM games run too long
