To all my Splinter Cell fans out there, Splinter Cell: Blacklist is back, allowing us to fulfill our fantasies of being a one man spy machine. To the new comers, join in and come be a part of the spy train. To put it clearly, Splinter Cell: Blacklist is a very good game to spend some time with.
A terrorist organization calling themselves the Engineers, is targeting the United States of America and Sam Fisher is called in to help solve the threat.
In my opinion, Blacklist is to date the best Splinter Cell entry and I really think after you play it, if you have had the pleasure of playing the past entries, you will not be disappointed.
Splinter Cell: Blacklist comes packed with a lot of things to do that’s going to hold you to it long after you complete the main campaign. Other than the main campaign, you have versus side missions that extends the storyline a little. These side missions can be played solo or coop. You have your straight on coop missions, then you have you multiplayer. Yes, folks, Spies vs. Mercs is back! This time around, you have about 5 different variations of it. Great side note, Splinter Cell: Blacklist rewards you for everything you do.
The campaign consist of 12 missions as you track down every bit of information about the Engineers and try to prevent their next attack. Along side those missions, there are 4 sets of missions from Grimm, Charlie, Briggs, and even Kobin. Each presents a different play style and reward after completing all of them. Speaking of play styles, Blacklist rewards everyone’s play styles. If you want to get in and out without a peep, then the Ghost style is your cup of tea. Or, maybe you don’t like leaving witnesses, then silently remove the opposition and attack like a Panther. Then again, maybe you don’t really care who hears and you don’t mind making a scene. Then the Assault style is all you.
Spies vs Mercs like I said before is back! And again, Blacklist provides you with more and more options. You have 6 stages to start out, I’m pretty sure there will be more in the future, in my opinion. You have the Classic SvM which is for the purists. This is your 2v2 SvM. Spies only have non-lethal gear and the shadows. Then you have Blacklist mode, where it’s 4v4 and Spies and Mercs can use choice and customize from a group of gadgets and gears. Special gear and gadgets can be unlocked either by reaching certain levels or playing Splinter Cell related games.
Splinter Cell: Blacklist has so much to offer the deepest of Splinter Cell fans and enough to hold and grab the new comer. Do yourself a favor and pick this one up!
