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.

Feels like... Splinter Cell!

(tldr is the overall impression on the bottom)

I've been a huge Splinter Cell fan since the first part and so played every single one of the franchise.
So I felt like Chaos Theory was the last ) real (and best!) Splinter Cell in terms of gameplay and stealthiness. The 2 following games, Double Agent and Conviction felt quite disappointing and not like good 'ol Splinter Cell to me.
That being said, I was unsure if I really should give Blacklist a chance, as I also was warned that it might disappoint me aswell.

When the game was offered for around 10 bucks, I decided to give it a try.
And honestly I was quite surprised!

The positive :

+ the game offers you to choose your own playstyle. You're able to choose between 3 different approaches each mission: Ghost (remain unseen and no kills!), Panther (no alarms and stealthy kills) and Assault (just shoot at everything in your sight). If you want to have that original Splinter Cell feel, you definitely should go for Ghost, as it is the most fun (Panther too, but it feels too easy) and I think also most rewarding gamestyle.

+ you can do a lot of sidemissions and you're still able to do a lot of stuff after the quite short main campaign (around 8-10 hours, depending on how your playstyle is)

+ a lot of different weapons and gadgets.

+ the story is quite alright, although nothing really extraordinary. But it does keep up the tension (although you might already know how it ends anyway)

+ the maps/levels are quite cool, also because not everything is during night.

The neutral :

~ it has a coop mode! (Note: I didn't really play it, so I won't judge it as positive or negative. But there are still people who play it, so go ahead!)

~ Uplay. While I'm actually not bothered by it, some people may see this as negative. I just want to mentioned it, but it doesn't really bother me. A negative point would be that your achievments can only be seen in Uplay but that's it for me.

~ The soundtrack is alright, but nothing outstanding. Does fit to the game.

~ Graphics are decent, too. The game is around 2-3 years old, so it should run on most computers. Nothing special, though.

The Negative :

- I'll start with the biggest one: the last bossfight. Oh god, it's so awful. I don't what their aim was for that one, but it is boring, annoying and you don't really know what to do. I think I needed to do it 5-6 times, not because it was difficult but because it's so confusing. As it is the only boss fight, it's forgiveable, but it will be my alltime favorite for worst boss fight of all time. ( I don't want to spoil your *fun*, so that's everything I'll say about it)

- cheesy characters and dialogues. The hacker dude really has some cringe-worthy moments and lines (tells a bad joke, nobody laughs, he says "What?". Oh god.) and is such a stereotypical character. Also some dialogues are just too action cliché like. It isn't that bad, but I can't just overlook it .

- The main story is quite short, but I think the additional side missions make up for it.

Overall impression :

I generally recommend this game, as it feels like old splinter cell again (if you're choosing to play ghost!).
I wouldn't say that it is a must have because of some minor to major flaws but if you're a fan of the Splinter Cell series and a fan of stealth games, I definitely would say that you should pick it up! Also because it isn't that expensive right now and most importantly it's fun!

Gets 80/100.

So it's not Chaos Theory, it's not Conviction. It's an even-numbered Splinter Cell game that doesn't suck - is that not amazing enough?

Featurring the redefined stealth/action mechanics in Conviction (mark & execute, faster movement, better interaction with objects to hide behind), and the tried and tested mechanics from Chaos Theory (the knife - cut through tents again, interrogation, optional slow pace and the return of the "flaring" equipment to signal zero visibility), this new entry adds a system of evaluating your performance under the usual alarms and detections, but refines this by scoring how you approach these detections (or how good you are if you're not detected at all).

The Ghost score (stealth, no fatality) rewards the player for knockouts, non-lethal takedowns, or no detection at all - a must for the purists. The Panther style (stealth, no alarms, lethal - can be detected, but no alarms raised) rewards those who like to kill and disappear, or who kill upon detection before an alarm is triggered, even counting bodies found. The Assault (alarms, detections, kills while in high alert) rewards those who prefer the Desert Eagle over the silenced pistol, and prefer to use stealthy approaches such as shotguns, grenades and explosions. Of course, points are given, rewards appear based on this (such as armour or tools), and allow you to level up to the ultimate agent in your own style.

Each level features multiple paths and approaches to tailor the game to the player's chosen style, and allows for exploration without feeling too linear (it's a stealth game with plot-based directives, we can't all worship phantom pain and expect open-world) or constricted.

The storyline continues the plot from Conviction (in a way), and pales in comparison, but keeps the player entertained enough to want to achieve goals.

Visually, this game is amazing, the assets shine bright and loud, but don't cost like some games - the people in this team truly achieved some amazing work under the optimisation stage (Conviction stutters at 720 on my machine on medium, this runs just under ultra at 1080).

Overall, a very well-oiled machine, with plenty of levels, plenty of routes and goals to keep the player re-trying again and again to reach perfection. One quibble though - The quadcopter was a complete waste of time. Far too gadget-loving, and cripples the difficulty in some places; avoid for true fun except where mandatory.

Great fun, and welcome to most SC fans, if a little underwhelming and possibly preachy with story.

Hi all^^ From start i will say that i never played before Tom Clancy's franchise. So it's something new for me^^ And this something new suprised me alot. Game really good from stealthable part. Alot of ways to complete mission by stealth. Really interesting, you can just avoid all guards or use some equipments to kill them in really different ways. Really alot equipments in this game so i wasn't boring with them :) Or you can just quietly run and kill or beat enemies with your butt of the rifle from behind. In this game exist 3th and 1th field of view but main field of view it's of cource 3th to be honest i didn't play alot multiplayer but i know that exist kind of competition where some guy playing as spy he is a hacker(3th person) and another guy who must to protect pc's merc he is an enforcer(1th person). So if you are real fan of 1th person shooters this game must interested you too a bit :3 But anyway it's more related for 3th person. I remember in one mission you must play from Briggs and this part in mission only from 1th person. And i can say that from 1th person more harder than from 3th person especially stealth. Story in this game really cool.It's just all about secret agents epic story , explosions, attacks which you of cource must stop, etcetera. Not alot of jokes in Blacklist but i really like when not alot of jokes in game but alot of them shows up in right time and right place at least it's better than not funny jokes every min. In Co-op really great to spend time with's just something awesome :3 There are missions which you can complete alone in co-op and with friend. You can plan your actions do something interesting together :) I think this all what i wanted to say.Of cource i recommend this game! Good luck and bye~
P.S.: Sorry my english is really bad :c

Blacklist feels like a combination of Conviction and the older Splinter Cell titles. It plays like Conviction, but now you can avoid enemies and do non-lethal takedowns like in Double Agent and previous titles. The story is pretty interesting, and the graphics are good. I didn't have any problems with Uplay, so I guess I'm lucky.

What's disappointing is that Michael Ironside is no longer the voice of Sam Fisher in here, and he's replaced by a much younger actor instead. It's kinda weird to see Sam getting older but his voice and movements are actually getting younger.

Still, better than Conviction, though.
