Splinter Cell: Blacklist
6 September 2013
Excerpt: Moving through a low-lit garden in the dead of night, I silently took out a guard and his dog with sleeping gas, and moved swiftly under a balcony as another guard moved overhead. With a swift tap of the ‘X’ button Sam reached up and smashed the guard’s face into the railing and pulled him over into the shadows…
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: Wie kent Sam Fisher en Splinter Cell, de reeks die hem grootmaakte, niet? Begonnen als een uitstekend stealhgame op de originele Xbox, werd de serie al snel erg populair, onder andere dankzij de originele gameplay, de uitstekende afwerking en recent ook de verrassende multiplayercomponent.
Excerpt: I've always been a big fan of UbiSoft, especially since I\'ve been playing the Xbox. I would have to say that out of all the companies that work on games for us, UbiSoft just has everything that needs to be done to make a realistic game down pat. From the lightening in dark areas of maps to the crickets you hear on your surround sound setup, these games are made to suck you right into the game like no other.
Excerpt: If Sam Fisher were available for hire to just anyone, do you think we would have some of the stories and scandals that are in todays news? Would Sam have left the kids alone with Michael? Would bad intel have made its way to the White House regarding WMD? Do you think Sam would have let Nicole and Ron walk up that sidewalk all alone with a knife wielding assailant in the bushes? The correct answer to all of the above is no way.
Summary: This is how you do a Splinter Cell game. From start to finish this blows everything else out of the water with an excellent story, fantastic production values and wonderful gameplay. I can’t wait to see where they go from here but Solid Snake has some serious work to do to impress now.
Excerpt: I knew five minutes into the original Splinter Cell that I was playing what would soon become a mega franchise. It had all the right ingredients: a compelling story, stealthy gameplay, cool gadgets and weapons, and a badass main character. What more could you ask for? Unfortunately the sequel, Pandora Tomorrow, was a letdown. While it added multiplayer to the mix, the single player story was weak.
