X360A Review: Splinter Cell: Blacklist
Written Thursday, August 15, 2013 By Richard WalkerView author's profile
It's been three years since Sam Fisher last snuck around punching guards in the back of the head in Splinter Cell: Conviction, and a lot has happened in that time. He's greyer, even angrier and his voice has transformed for Splinter Cell: Blacklist. Is it the same old Sam Fisher at heart? Pretty much.
Mark and execute and cover to cover movement returns once again, and the emphasis is very much on stealth, with executing the mission perfectly at the core of the experience. The tone is darker, the story more serious, but there's no mistaking that Sam is back with a vengeance. But does Splinter Cell: Blacklist deliver the goods? Or should Ubisoft go back to the drawing board again?
