Product Details:

The United States has a military presence in two thirds of countries around the world. A group of 12 have had enough and initiate a terror ultimatum called the Blacklist - a deadly countdown of escalating terrorist attacks on U.S. interests. Sam Fisher is the leader of the newly formed 4th Echelon unit: a clandestine unit that answers solely to the President of the United States. Sam and his team must hunt down these terrorists by any means necessary, and stop the Blacklist countdown before it reaches zero. Splinter Cell Blacklist offers enhanced gameplay options on the WiiU. The Gamepad mimics Sam's OpSat, allowing the player to operate gadgets such as tri-rotor drones, sticky cam and much more through touch and motion based inputs.

Game Overview: The Blacklist

The United States has a military presence in two-thirds of countries around the world. 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 US interests at home and abroad.

Operate Without Restrictions

Sam is back in his ops 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 US cities as he races against the clock to find out who's behind this devastating threat.

- Character Bios -

Sam Fisher

Sam Fisher knows exactly what he was made to be: a multimillion-dollar weapon developed by the US government to do what few others can do. Long before Third Echelon tapped him to be the first Splinter Cell agent, Sam was operating behind enemy lines, in situations where traditional rules of engagement didn't apply. From Panama and the Persian Gulf to Bolivia, Columbia, Yugoslavia, and Kosovo, Fisher carried out missions which most American citizens would be horrified to learn about, should the US Government ever admit they occurred. A former Navy SEAL, Sam belonged to an elite brotherhood of warriors ready to sacrifice their lives in defense of America's freedoms. Combat, espionage, and constant training have defined his adult life. His tactical experience has become part of his instinct.
Now, however, he stands alone, having rejected what his service had become and the mandates of those giving him orders. Having sacrificed everything for his country - his marriage, his daughter, his reputation, and his best friend - he finished his last assignment and walked away, a human weapon gone rogue. And the funny thing is, he almost didn't become a soldier at all.

Charlie Cole

Equal parts brilliant and reckless (not on purpose - he just doesn't think), Charlie has been getting himself in and out of trouble as a hacker since he was twelve. Far from a solitary introvert, Charlie enjoys a healthy social life and has a natural self-deprecating charm that he uses to defuse tension or make light of those who take things (and themselves too seriously).
Owing to his youth and focus on tech, Charlie hasn't suffered many consequences in the real world so he's pretty cavalier about the trouble he gets in. It's hard to worry when you've been able to talk or tech your way out of any problem you've run into. It's all just a game and Charlie always wins... well almost always. And when he doesn't, well, Charlie will grow into a key member of the Fourth Echelon team but he's got a lot to learn, including how to be calm under fire and how to keep focus when all breaks loose (especially when it just might be his fault).

Grim

Anna Grímsdóttir (known as "Grim" to her friends in the NSA) is the technical operations manager at Third Echelon. Her role is to provide Sam Fisher with technical support in the field, as well as to analyze and interpret much of the electronic data. A skilled hacker, Grímsdóttir normally tries to remotely hack into an objective computer system before Fisher is inserted, or when not possible does it direct from Fisher's OPSAT connection to a computer terminal.

Vic

Victor "Vic" Anthony Christopher Coste is one of Sam Fisher's oldest friends. The two served together on SEAL Team Two in Iraq during the Gulf War in 1991. During their time in Iraq, Coste single-handedly rescued Sam from a hostage situation after he was captured by Iraqi forces during a disastrous mission. After leaving the Navy, Coste later became a private security consultant. He served as Sam's contact in Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Conviction®, giving him vital information and equipment during certain missions. Near the end of the game, Coste reunited Sam with his daughter Sarah. In Conviction, Coste also served as the game's narrator, retelling the story in a Black Arrow PMC interrogation room. The player also took control of Victor during a flashback to the mission where he saved Sam. Following Conviction, Vic and Sam are working together for Vic's PMC, Paladin 9, taking contracts they believe in, as opposed to blindly following orders. That is, until the first Blacklist attack, where Vic is horrifically injured by a grenade when trying to protect Sam.

- Gadgets -

Tri-Rotor

A remote-pilotable flying drone that fires Sticky Shocker darts. Its rotors can be heard by hostiles if you fly too close.
Use the Tri-Rotor to: Scout out areas and Mark hostiles, or attract enemies. Upgrade to gain the ability Self-Destruct and emit sonar pulses
Sonar is unavailable in Perfectionist or near Drone Operators. Drone Operators cannot jam the Tri-Rotor's main video frequency.

Sticky Noise Maker

Use it to create an opening to slip through patrols, or lure hostiles into a trap. This tiny speaker can be thrown onto walls and surfaces to distract guards from their posts.

Sticky EMP

Sticks to walls and delivers a localized electromagnetic pulse, disabling lights and Security Systems nearby. Use it to create Shadow paths to hide from hostiles, or target Power Boxes near laser trip wires to shut them down. Hostiles are unaffected by the pulse, but will investigate when they see lights shutting off.

Sticky Camera

A remote camera that can be thrown onto walls or other surfaces to offer a second set of eyes. Use it to watch your own back, or scout from new vantage points. Once upgraded, the camera can also Self-Destruct to stun or kill nearby hostiles.

Goggles

VISION MODES: Goggles let you see things you otherwise can't. By default, your Goggles offer Night Vision mode, so you can see clearly while hidden in the shadows. Buy more advanced goggles to add Sonar Vision mode.
SONAR VISION: Sonar goggles periodically emit a supersonic pulse to detect hostiles behind walls. They can also detect Mines and Security Systems. Upgrade your Sonar Goggles to increase their range and sensitivity. On Perfectionist difficulty, Sonar Goggles cannot see through walls.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing Game thank you Ubisoft!!! the only reason i rated a 9 out of 10 is because this games been out for so long without an update/patch for the spies vs mercs (multiplayer) its unplayable but once that gets fixed definitely a 10 the single player will definitely keep you busy until that gets fixed though definitely a GOTY contender on the Wii U cant wait for AC4 and Watchdogs again from Ubisoft :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great refresh of the Splinter Cell Series I am thrilled with this game. I have loved Splinter Cell since the first game, but always felt it was so ambitious, that the hardware (of the time) was holding it back. Now with the power of the Wii U, the hardware has evolved to be able to really showcase what this series is about. Blacklist is a refresh of the series, bringing in Motion Capture animation, and a new voice actor to the character of Sam Fisher. While Michael Ironside is hailed as The Voice of Same (since the first game), and many SC fans miss him in Blacklist, I think Ubisoft did an amazing job with refreshing the series. The new voice actor (who also did all the motion capture for Sam Fisher (as well) really brings a new life to the character (and series). Ubi took it a step further, having different difficultly levels, different modes of playing (from lethal to non-lethal, and stealth to assault), making this series more accessible to new comers, and flexible to your playing style. This also adds a lot of replay value (to really challenge you). The challenges are not frustrating, yet motivating to really push through the game (even when at it’s most difficult). The story line is better than a movie, the graphics are amazing, the side missions are great, and the daily and weekly UPlay challenges are fun – all giving you the opportunity to earn money for more gear, which provides an advantage in the storyline gameplay. The Wii U (and added features Ubi gave it) is the best version hands down. The use of the gamepad really immerses you in the character of Sam Fisher. Not only providing fast access to weapons and gadgets, but also integrating certain aspects of the game play, to add a better challenge (such as sniping enemies from a helicopter, to flying an armed UAV). Blacklist is a great new direction for the Splinter Cell series, and the Wii U’s features (and graphical power), makes this the definitive version. A must for your Wii U library.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great game but has some issues I'll start of say overall I think this game is great for the Wii U. They made some really nice use of the new game controller. But for me FPS games need the option of using the Wiimote and would have like to seen that incorporated into this like BO2 did. The online play has some issues that needs fixed. First off every time I've played Spy vs Mercs the game has locked up requiring me to unplug the power to fix. Also the chat feature is very choppy which makes it almost useless during gameplay. I've been a dedicated Call of Duty fan for years and this was my first experience with Splinter cell. They've made a great game and I'm looking forward to see more of this game in the future.
