Splinter Cell Blacklist Review

GamerNode
18 November 2013
  • 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

PC Magazine
4 October 2013
  • Conclusion: Splinter Cell Blacklist is everything you've always loved (or hated) about the franchise with the addition of new competitive multiplayer Spies vs. Mercs modes.
  • Pros: All new customizable Spies vs. Mercs online multiplayer competitive mode. Custom build-outs. Increased gameplay variety (Ghost, Assault, Panther styles) in single-player story mode.
  • Cons: Long load times. Repetitive and sometimes tedious game play. Short single-player story mode.

Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Blacklist

The Gamers Temple
26 September 2013
  • Excerpt: Have you felt that today's "stealth" games, or even games that have limited stealth sequences, are a little lacking? I loved the new Tomb Raider as much as the next guy, but sneaking around was, in a word, lame. Shadows made no difference in whether or not an enemy ended up spotting you. Huh? The Last Of Us did things a little more smoothly, but the lack of a true non-lethal option, which would have made zero sense in the game, left stealth fans wanting.

Splinter Cell Blacklist is White Hot

GIN
11 September 2013
  • Excerpt: The high-tech black-ops cyber-ninja is back. Sort of. With Third Echelon disbanded, its corrupt members dead or in jail, Sam Fisher dusts off his iconic tri-focal goggles for a sixth outing, this time as leader of a brand new, squeaky-clean Fourth Echelon. It isn't long before his unique talents are needed and this one will be a real test for his untried new team, who, aside from Sam and Anna Grimsdottir (Grim), have never worked together.

About.com
4 September 2013
  • Conclusion: Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell: Blacklist Image © Ubisoft “Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell: Blacklist” may be the most surprisingly enjoyable game of Summer 2013. As we now go through this purge of leftover last-gen titles before the PS4 hits in two-and-a-half months, there’s going to be a cluttered mess on the New Releases shelf of your local store. There are a few gems . This is one of them. Disclosure: A review copy was provided by the publisher.

Splinter Cell: Blacklist

Destructoid
2 September 2013
  • Summary: Splinter Cell: Conviction was, in my opinion, a superb new direction for the Splinter Cell series, but a fair few fans were unhappy with the changes Ubisoft made. It's hardly surprising then, that Splinter Cell: Blacklist pulls the classic trick of making the old seem new again, bringing Sam Fisher's stealthy adventures closer to their roots.

  • 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.

  • Excerpt: Sam Fisher's world may be the stuff of fiction but it is not that far removed from reality. As the franchise has always done a good job of highlighting, the "good guys" and "bad guys" are not always clear. The world is a more complicated place with shades of gray rather than stark black and white.

  • Excerpt: , the developers remember precisely what made this series so damn good; they put a premium on stealth, give us back all those nifty gadgets, add depth via customization and upgrades, and provide us with diverse, satisfying missions. As a huge bonus, the gripping, original multiplayer enhances and diversifies an already rewarding experience.
