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.

COOP
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.

There's nothing i hate more than the lack of a quick-save feature. For this reason, i must give a thumbs down because you can spend 15+ minutes in a mission and have to start from the very beginning when you die or alert the guards. This can get frustrating after the 2nd or 3rd time. On one mission in particular I got down to taking out the very last hostile, who seemed immune to knock-outs and tasers, died and had to start the beginning after about 20 minutes of carefully taking out others. I'm done with this game. Glad it only cost me 8 bucks on a steam sale,

I have never been punished for buying a DLC before. buying a DLC blocked me from playing with my friend that didn't have it, which was the whole reason I bought the damn game. Now ubisoft support has kept be waiting for 2 days without a reply. ♥♥♥♥ you Ubisoft

In this realistic game you really understand that the enemy can use drones and dogs to spot you instead of just walking around to find you. (very helpful knowledge in the actual world) You'll also need to watch out for.....big people, when you see them I guess it's best to find a molotov. Once you die that's it no retry or anything. That part I really liked cause sometimes it was so realistic that the game would bug out and shut down. All in all I felt it was really preparing me for the future. Good Game. SOOOO REALISTIC IT'LL CREAP YOU OUT!!!

Absolutely fantastic, only problem I have is that it's a pain to actually launch the game, it automatically installed a Ubisoft program that try's to connect to the Internet and really slows the launch process if you have no internet, like it fails after loading for ages and then allows u to do it offline etc, really tiresome! Also I try to launch in full screen but it always "forgets" the setting

Fantastic game, some people can't get it playing sadly, but if you can, awesome!
gripes? Well I owned this initially on PS3, played the crap out of it on there, this game feels like a real good port, there's certain things stopping it from being real great like custom gamepad layout, it uses a one format to fit them all, don't like shooting with RT, prefer RB? Well too bad, go buy a console and play it on there where they have the option.
Another gripe for me is the lack of extra content, it's not like this game wasn't popular or doesn't still get played, it still has active members jaming it... however we only got 2 extra missions and no more. Dogs and robots are insanely annoying and stops this game from being as fun as it could be... also not all light sources can be destroyed, which I thought was real dumb... I thought maybe that's just the consoles because you know, PS3 has a very limited amount of RAM, but nope, this game simply doesn't allow you to bust every light build no matter what kind of armor piecing round you shoot at it. So thus this game isn't perfect, it looks much better than on consoles but sadly the content is very underwhelming... I would throw my money for more DLC, even if it's just more maps... I love this game but the devs sadly don't.

Got me and my friend roleplaying special forces :)

Lots of fun, challenging and most of all, memorable times. Guranteed to put a smile on my face, especially when working with a friend where we either take things out together in loud fashion, play team ninjas, or just the oldest trick in the book; bait n flank pincer attack.

My first review on Steam,

I bought this game 4 days ago while it was having a discount, this game is enjoyable tho not so pure at 'stealth'. But it's worth the money.

Anyway, add me on steam if you need partner to play Co Op or multiplayer

I wouldn't say that this Splinter Cell entry is a terrible one, but I just don't feel confortable recomending this to long-time Splinter Cell fans. If you played anything before Chaos Theroy, you might not like this one much. It's not quiet a bad game, just..I feel like this is the Fallout 4 of Splinter Cell. A good game streamlined for the masses, infavor of apealling to it's existing audience.

Finally played this game that I've wanted to try for a very long time. Blacklist came out 2013, and I have to say that it still looks brilliant. It was a blast to play since the game is very nice optimized. SLI supported so I played it on ultra at 1440p, 144 fps. This most have been one of the best looking games of 2013, because it's still impressive.

Personally I would really like to play this in first person. There's 2 missions where you can play first person, but the rest is in third person. I looked around for a camera option, but I found that there is none. It's only in the missions that they selected. Too bad about that, because I though that was a lot more fun.

The strong part of this game is in my opinion the story. A terror group called the engineers is threatening USA with attacks if they don't pull back their troups out of other countries. Sam Fisher and his team is trying to find the people behind it, and the cutscenes add a lot to the story. Voice-acting and lip-sync is good and help the story out. What kept me playing to the end was absolutely to see how the story ended, and I liked it.

There's a pretty cool upgrade system. You get points based on what you playstyle is. Combat, panther or ghost. Now I tried to sneak a little, but most of the time I went for combat. Since I chose the combat/panther path I upgraded my gear for that. More powerful weapons, and gear with better armor. If you wanna sneak better you can upgrade to more sneaky gear and gadgets. I really like that I got the choice and wasn't forced to play in any perticular way. Some missions are unfortunately sneak only, but it's limited. Those missions frustrated me a little, but I can look past it.

I didn't feel like the guns had that powerful feeling and the gunplay was a little dull in my opinion. Melee takedowns was cool though. I though the gunplay was much better in the few first person missions. I just wish I could choose to play that way in every mission. But that's really the only downside that I personally felt.

All in all, this is a good AAA-game that you can play in your own way. Blacklist has a nice story, that is pretty lenghty and definitely replayable, with maps that have multiple paths and bonus objectives. I rushed through it and it still took me about 10 hours, but if you want you can spend a lot more time then that. I'm personally done with blacklist after one playthrough and have no desire to go back, but im still glad I played it. I simply have a lot of other games I wanna play too, but if you are that person that like to play a game many times over, this is probably a game for you.

There is a lack of stealth games on the market, and this is one of the better ones. It runs super well, sounds good and the gameplay is fun. Sure I have some criticism on it, but it's minor things that most people won't care about. I would recommend it to everyone that like sneak games, third person shooters and games with a good story. I'm happy I played it, even though it wasn't what I expected before going in. I think people should give it a shot, on sale or even at full price. Gunplay was no more then decent in my opinion, but story, stealth, graphics and optimization made up for it.

I was apprehensive when seeing gameplay footage from this game as I was worried we had moved too far from the stealth based mechanics of the earlier games (Chaos theory will always be my first and true love). I waited for Blacklist to come up on sale before buying. I can happyily say I was not disappointed and would have payed full price for this game (Not something I say often). The stealth mechanics are still there in their deepest sense however there is the option to tackle the game in a more head on fashion as well if that's your thing.
