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.

Let me begin by saying that Splinter Cell Blacklist plays very smoothly, and at times, can be very intense. The AI is smart. The motions of Sam as he vaults, shoots, executes, stabs, snaps necks, climbs, or whatever are very impressive. It never got old watching Sam execute enemies in a variety of ways using the classic Karambit.

This is a kind of game where you sneak into battle knowing that your armor can hardly stand intense punishment, and you may use your wallhack goggles immensely to make sure you don't get snuck up on by a stray patrol. You listen intently for the pants of dogs or time when the camera moves so you can pass through certain corridors. Depending on your playstyle (Panther, Ghost, or Combat) the outcome of battles vary. Sometimes, you can avoid a gunfight entirely.

However, there is little variation in the actual outcome of the story (except a line of dialogue) when you are faced with actual decisions. Your actions are literally meaningless, regardless of whether or not you spare this guy or that guy or sneak through a map or go through the map guns blazing. Replayability is difficult since the patrols are all the same. Enemies telegraph their movements too easily by shouting out their positions (if you haven't spotted them via wallhacks), or how snipers have stupid red lasers that mark exactly where they are looking.

Some missions in the single player story force you to follow conditions, such as not killing/disturbing anyone or only using non-lethal weapons. Failing these conditions will instantly fail the mission. At first this was fun since it mixed up gameplay, but scenarios like these just BEG for multiple endings or branching missions. After two times I was sick of having conditions applied to my game.


tl;dr version:
++Looks visually stunning both graphically and in the animation
++AI is impressive at hunting you down (sometimes too impressive...)
+Can get intense as you sneak through open rooms or during CQC/CQB

---SUPER linear story
---Lack of replayability (thanks to linear story)
---Too easy (Even on Hardest difficulty)
---Air Support sections straight out of Call Of Duty
---No meaning to any decisions

I am a normal human who is not some super games geek who plays at tough levels. I play 1-2 hours a week, I like games which are cool, run quite well and feel contemporary-ish in terms of plot and action and move along at a fair pace. This game rocks.

7 out of 10.

While Splinter Cell Blacklist have returns to it stealth root, there are still a lot of problems that I have with this game:

- No Michael Ironside voicing Sam Fisher.
- The campaign story is terrible compare to the older game.
- Some missions force the player into FPS session which is not fun at all, too much horde mode.
- The side missions are more challenging than the main campaign.
- Coop is hit or miss, most of the time you can't even find a coop partner.
- Uplay is ♥♥♥♥.
- Checkpoint system is terrible, you can't manually save at all.

Excellent graphics on high settings, great stealth/action gameplay and some cool upgrade systems for weapons armour. If you liked Metal Gear Solid V: Phantom Pain then you'll like this.

Splinter Cell Blacklist is the sixth game in the Splinter Cell series. It is also a return to the more stealth driven gameplay after the more action driven fifth game Conviction.

Pros:
-More Freedom to complete objectives your own way using either Pure Stealth, Pure Combat or a mixture of both.
-Great looking game with pretty good performance.
-Good storyline and voice acting.

Cons:
-Uplay is still rubbish
-No Michael Ironside as Sam Fisher, but the new actor actually does really good job.
-Mulitplayer isnt that active if you live outside of the United States.

After Conviction being the weakest game in the series so far, it was really good to see Blacklist make a real return to form for the Splinter Cell series.
It was so good it ended up being my second favourite Splinter Cell game behind Choas Theory.

Highly Recommended.

Final Score: 8 out of 10.

Great stealth game with very decent shooting. Unfortunately the progression/unlocks system are not as good as the gameplay, the menus are very confusing at first and their "challenges" are a joke to be laughed at. I also got to NOT watch the final cutscene because Ubisoft decided it was not worth patching their bugs... Shame on you!
Despite all that, the game is good and definitely worth to be bought at discounted price. Double that if you have a friend you can play co-op with.

Havent played the previous games so I cant speak for the, but SCB seems to be a great game if you are into stealth action, completely worth it at its current sale price of 7.50$
