Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell: Blacklist is an action-adventure stealth computer game created by Ubisoft Toronto and published by Ubisoft. The seventh installment of the Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell series, it is the sequel of Splinter Cell: Conviction. The game was released worldwide for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3, Wii U, and Xbox 360 in August 2013. In the game, players control Sam Fisher, a spymaster working for the Fourth Echelon, in a mission to stop the Engineers, a gathering of terrorists which is attempting to constrain the United States into reviewing the entirety of its troops stationed abroad. Blacklist’s ongoing interaction is similar to its predecessors, with players tasked with finishing objectives and vanquishing enemies. Blacklist marks the arrival of the asymmetrical multiplayer mode Spies vs. Mercs, which was presented in Pandora Tomorrow.
It is the first title created by Ubisoft Toronto, a studio established by Ubisoft in 2009. The game was coordinated by Maxime Béland, who had dealt with Conviction, and created by Jade Raymond. The game endeavors to consolidate elements of its predecessors, including the action focus of Conviction and the stealth focus of the more established games. To plan for this game, Béland studied reviews and highlight lists of the last mentioned. Blacklist is the first Splinter Cell game starring Eric Johnson as Sam Fisher, since series veteran Michael Ironside couldn’t reprise his job subsequent to being diagnosed with cancer. The later-announced Wii U version was created by Ubisoft Shanghai, which also built up the game’s multiplayer.
Multiple-choice gameplay rooted in stealth plus co-op and the return of Spies vs. Mercs make Blacklist a great package.
Wonky mission design and technical issues drag down a solid stealth game that still has enjoyable multiplayer.
If you liked any of the previous splinter cells you will enjoy this game, the voice change takes some getting used to but its a splinter cell with the stealth element back!
