Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Blacklist
Gameplay 9/10: I like that this is like an old school Splinter Cell game. You can go in like a ninja and gain xp for that. The game is pretty difficult even on the easiest difficulty, which can be annoying if you are not well known with such games. You can also customize your character with weapons, clothing that help your character, and other cool features. The movements of the players are realistic, but also repetitive at times. That doesn't seem to be a problem though.
Graphics 6.5/10: There is no justice done with the graphics here. It is not up to par with the graphics of recent games, but it's still better than the last splinter cell.
Story 9.5/10: The story here is great and interesting. I couldn't wait until the end to find out what happens. Although there are no real twist or turns, you stay intrigued throughout the game.
Sound 7/10: The music in the game is good, not great. The shooting is somewhat lackluster of a real gun sound. And the new voice actor is a hit or a miss whether you like him or not. He is not in the same ballpark as the previous actor, but I thought he did a decent job.
Multiplayer 3/10: Don't expect to do much after beating the campaign. The online is not fun in any way. This is the main reason I am not keeping the game.
Overall 9/10: You should definitely rent the game, but buying it will be up to whether you like the multiplayer at all or not.
really good all around but should be longer
need more coop play and more upgrades but nothing bad to say the leader boards where good i like how you can compete agasints friends
I did not like this game one bit. I am not a fan of stealth games but this was just bad! The only stealth games I like are dishonered and assassins creed.
Perfect for everone
Whether your a fan of the challenging classic splinter cell game or recently got hooked by conviction or even just now entering the franchise this game is perfect for you. Same fisher is back and kicking tail whether it be in the main story missions or the more challenging solo/cooperative side missions this game will leave you wanting more. Love conviction's gameplay with mark and exicute? Realistic will test you at times and have you still fully able to mark an execute. Classic stealthy splinter cell fan? Perfectionist difficulty will make you feel right at home with only a limited amount of ammunition and the achievements for not disturbing or killing any enemies will be fine additions to your collection. Intensely addictive gameplay will have you calling in sick to work just to play, I disbanded from my favorite games to beat the game. Definite proud owner of this game and extremely pleased with myself for preordering it, $60 I spent well.
Great for first timers to the series.
This was my first Splinter Cell game and I felt by the time I got into the game I already knew who Sam was and where he had been. The graphics are right at the top of the latest generation consoles capabilities, the story is fluid, and the side missions/coop break up the missions without breaking the game. Once I complete Blacklist, I will be looking for the earlier games, in hopes Sam returns to the next gen consoles.
I loved this game alot, i suggest not to get any pre-owned versions of this game. I got a pre-owned one and the second disc was totally scratched I didn't know what to do so i returned it and got a new version I was very disappointed at first that I didn't get to play the second part. But this is a great game that of course makes you think of what you're doing.
You have a bunch of cool gagets like sticky cameras that detonate to EMP's making all the lights shut off. There are three ways to play-Panther, Ghost, and Assault. Ghost and Panther are sneaky type gameplay and if you just want to run in and shoot everyone Assault is good. Great storyline and secondary missions too.
one of the most satifiying games ever
This game is so great,if you have forty bucks to spend i highly recommend that you at least try this game wonderful graphics even for xbox360,i love every part of the story,and considering they are gunna add more to the story as add on content makes it even greater,if you like being a ninja or a cod expert this has both play styles from 3rd person to 1st love this game higly recommend,MUST BUY!!!!
This is one of the very few Splinter Cell games I have ever played, but I will say, it is awesome. I believe this game needs more credit where it is due in that it tells an amazing narrative, looks gorgeous, and has some of the best mechanics I've ever seen in a game. I would definitely give this game a 10/10 and reccomend it to a friend any day.
I choose this over Cod ghosts and battlefield 4
I walked into gamestop expecting to get Cod ghosts or battlefield 4, but i was instantly drawn in to splinter cell blacklist. I choose it because i had splinter cell on my old xbox. This is an amazing game and is so muh fun and has lasting appeal.
