About This Game

The United States has a military presence in two-thirds of countries around the world, and some of them have had enough. A group of terrorists calling themselves The Engineers initiate a terror ultimatum called the Blacklist - a deadly countdown of escalating attacks on U.S. interests.

Key Features

Operate without Restrictions
Sam is back in his tactical suit and goggles, and he’s more lethal and agile than ever. Granted the freedom to do whatever it takes to stop the Blacklist, Sam flies from exotic locales to U.S. cities as he races against the clock to find out who’s behind this devastating threat.

Own Your Play Style
Splinter Cell Blacklist builds on the stealth roots of the franchise, while exploring new directions to embrace the realms of action and adventure. Players can define their personal play styles and be rewarded for those choices.
  • Ghost players want to remain undetected.
  • Assault players rely on instincts and frontal blow to deal with a situation.
  • Panther players look for lethality in the most efficient and silent way.

Tools of the Trade
Take down The Engineers by using new gadgets such
as the upgraded Snake Cam and Micro-trirotor Drone. Splinter Cell Blacklist is also bringing back fan-favorites like the Sticky Shocker and the brutal, curved Karambit knife. Fans of stealth will be happy to make the most of Sam’s sneaking abilities to abduct and carry enemies, while Killing In Motion allows the player to strike with surgical precision by marking and executing multiple enemies in one fluid motion.

Build a New Echelon
Sam is building a whole new Echelon unit; his team, his way. Anna “Grim” Grimsdottir is his technical operations manager, CIA operative Isaac Briggs brings additional firepower, and resident hacker Charlie Cole rounds out the crew. 4th Echelon is a fully mobile ops unit with unlimited resources and cutting-edge technology aboard the re-purposed stealth airliner, the Paladin.

Enjoy a Fully Integrated Experience
Sam and his team are aware of terrorist attacks in real time thanks to the Strategic Mission Interface (SMI). The SMI allows 4th Echelon to receive data about mission objectives while on the move. With the SMI, players can take advantage of the universal game economy system that allows players to fully customize and upgrade Sam, his suit, goggles, weapons, the Paladin and much more.

Spies vs. Mercs Returns
Spies vs. Mercs is back with an new take on asymmetrical gameplay. Players will be able to face off in teams of 4 all the while creating their very own Spy or Merc according to their playstyles via thorough customization elements. The original Classic Spies vs. Mercs experience also makes its long awaited comeback for the fans.

With the SMI, the lines are blurred between the single campaign and COOP as the narrative is deepened with Sam and Briggs. Earn in-game currency and unlock additional weapons or gadgets via specialized missions assigned by Grim, Briggs, Charlie and Kobin.

The game itself is absolutely fantastic, but alas, you cannot review this game in its own right because it is dependant upon UPLAY to run.

Uplay/Ubisoft is the sole reason I have given this game a negative review, because of Uplay I can no longer play this game! I know my Uplay account email and password, but they don't work anymore, so every Ubisoft game in my steam library is essentially no longer mine. Click on the recover password link in the uplay launcher and I won't recieve a password reset email. SPeak to Ubisoft support and they will reply and ask for more information, when you provide it, keys, dates of purchase, the kitchen sink, they will never reply again. Ubisoft support is beyond disgraceful and they know it, the first paragraph of the reply was devoted to explaining how sorry they were for the delay and how they're trying to improve.

The worst part about the situation, is that it's a problem entirely of ubisofts own making. Steam already provides the DRM, the second layer is completely unecessary and only serves to cause problems and burn bridges between Ubisoft and PC gamers.

Uplay title? Buyer beware!! I've been burned and it won't happen again.

First of all, I am a huge fan of the Splinter Cell series.

Now with that out of the way:
This game improves where the 2 last ones failed; it adds the option to play missions in full stealth with no kills, Conviction didn't give us this kind of option I even played the whole game using H2H takedowns with the gun hidden so that I could excuse it as non-lethal.
Double agent had the gameplay of Chaos Theory (The best in the series) but it failed in delivering good missions especially with the trust meters.

This game is good to play with friends in CO-OP and in VERSUS mode, the VERSUS mode is practically dead now but you might still be able to play it with some luck and timing.

A very good Splinter Cell game, probably the best so far even though the story isnt as good as the last game.

Worth sale price most likely since there is little replay value and the multiplayer is dead.

I been playing this game since it came out, I don't play the online MMOFPS version just the game itself, the MMO version had to many hacking cheaters so I don't play it.
I like the game versiom amd play it often even though now it's a few years old.

Favorate franchise..........but....NEVER AGAIN UBISOFT

U-play dosnt work, never connects to online, when it does errors happen.

Im gonna say it, get an illegal copy because your never gonna connect online, plus the online is dead.

Not mad, dissapointed, ill never buy a Ubisoft title again.

NOTE: GET FOR CONSOLE, NOT MENT FOR PC. I used to love this series, i even heard the division is point less after you finish story, ubisoft such a let down. U-play = garbage.

I picked up this game over 2016's Summer Sale, I had been interested in it for years but never considered actually purchasing it up until then. I jumped into the game and immediately started enjoying it. The game (in my humble opinion) may not have a fantastic story base, really lacking of plot catch-up for newcomers to the series like me, but in spite of that I was able to get used to the controls and mechanics really quickly and before I knew it, I was on 4E's Paladin, getting my loadout set up for my first campaign mission. Since then, I've ghost mastered almost every story mission on perfection, and I've started digging into coop missions, trying them online. I was looking forward to this part of my time in the game, getting to do missions with a coop partner, but I feel that there is a serious lack of multiplayer maps, and that's just for coop. At this point I've found PC coop is almost dead, and I'm sure SvM Multiplayer isn't far behind. The few times I've been able to perform coop missions with other people have been quite fun, though. It takes real skill and cooperation to commit to completing a mission through a certain playstyle without screwing up. Overall, despite the issues this game has, I really enjoyed it overall, I hope to invest more time into perfecting each mission and seeing everything the game has to offer. Please pick it up if you have the motivation (and money) to do so, It's a stealth game that lots of people can enjoy.

Splinter Cell:Blacklist is a perfect example of how Ubisoft developers have perfected the 'sneak and peak spy genre' but fail to focus on the things that make Splinter Cell a great series.

Splinter Cell: Blacklist is confused about what it wants to be. On the cover it is a spy-themed game about infiltration and the gathering of intelligence, but on the inside it wants to be a game about shooting people and blowing things up - which I dont think it does particularlly well.

I enjoy the campaign missions and I have found that the storyline isn't half bad, but the majority of side missions, known as '4E' are repeditive, lack creativity, and generally go against what the game series is good at. For example, the objective of most 4E missions to kill everyone - some missions are just a seemingly endless wave of enemy fighters that you have to kill.

Once again, a franchise is ruined by developers who tailor their games to the twitch shooter crowd. You took Ghost Recon and now you've taken Splinter Cell.

Bought this game on a sale. it was worth it.The whole campaign was finished alone, if you have friends is way more fun but still you can manage.Multiplayer seems pretty bad though i joined, even with way better enemies like 40 levels above me but thats not it,it was just unfair the whole scheme and generally the multiplayer isnt that good. The co- op is great though.
