Splinter Cell: Blacklist Review

Sam Fisher may be a lost cause, but this is the strongest Splinter Cell game in years.

Yea! Don't see 4th Echelon getting the Syria treatment do you?

Sam is too serious and bitter now. Where is the cutting cynicism and irony? The opening paragraph nailed it. Now he's all like "YOU'RE OFF THE TEAM" and Grim is like "YOU TAKE TOO MANY RISKS" then Sam does a grumpy look to camera before you click Launch Mission.

Someone also tell me what the point of the 'kill or save' is? Seems like a moral choice for no actual outcome. I mean, I'd always pop a cap in the head of the guy I just knocked out anyway (get more points that way) so it's not as if one more mattered.

Sounds like it might be worth picking up, after the debacle of Conviction. Double Agent wasn't too bad (if the bugs didn't ruin it, of course). I've got to do a run through CT some time soon though, such an epic game!

Very well-written and amusing review - very bit-tech!

Chaos theory was f*cking epic! I tried to get into the ones afterwards but they just didnt keep me hooked and I had many a problem with double agent!

Good review, might have to pick this up!

Given the preview published a while back I was not expecting a positive review. Would be interested to get a bit of explanation on the turnaround.

My initial experience is that it's one hell of a shoddy port. I've had CTD's, issues with using a xbox controller and then using the keyboard to scroll through menus and it doesn't recognise my resolution correctly which, granted isn't a common one, but pretty much every recent game works out of the box.

Not impressed with it so far.

The preview focussed on segments of the game made available by Ubisoft at the time, most of which was single-player campaign revolving around story (and punching dogs, apparently.) The single-player story is total, jingoistic nonsense, but the actual game plays very nicely, and offers a lot of varied content, in both single and multiplayer.

A very well written review! You summed up the new Sam perfectly. Kobin has also extensively changed his tune; fortunately they kept the same actor but he seems much too pathetic and likable compared to the nasty, callous and selfish version of himself in Conviction. I changed the controls to match Conviction as much as possible, which makes for a much more comfortable switch that just introduces more options (it's a shame that the game assumes that when you set Walk/Run to toggle it assumes you want to otherwise always be running, especially in a "stealth" game).

It's also worth mentioning how cheap everything is - it's all too easy to acquire new gadgets and upgrades which makes them virtually valueless. There's still a couple of irritating bugs and glitches which Ubisoft will hopefully continue to patch (though I'm not holding my breath!).

I miss the raw, one-shot camera movement from Conviction but the new movie-like style of presentation still works. Needles to say, the game is far more Action-orientated and "'Murica!" frequently comes to mind. Nevertheless, it's fun all the same - as the review very agreeably makes out.

It's so you can do a run as 100% Ghost or Panther.
