Video: Splinter Cell Blacklist, ‘Sam Fisher at his best’

VG247: Sam Fisher made a return appearance at this year's E3, sparking the announcement of Splinter Cell Blacklist. VG247 rappelled in with the guys behind the green lights to discuss this 'blacklist' of theirs. (E3, PC, PS3, Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Blacklist, Xbox 360)

Sam Fisher was at his best during Chaos Theory, this empty shell of a former badass is nowhere near "his best".

I know.

This new guy is just another Agent 47, Soap MacTavish wannabe superbada$$

It amazes me how few people noticed that this isn't even Splinter Cell anymore...it's just a generic, fast-paced third person, ultra-violent shooter.

umm...no, it's not. you're basing your opinion of this game on a demo from E3.

the disappointing thing is that Sam is no longer Michael Ironside

An accurate opinion can be based once you have seen gameplay and at E3 their job is to sell the game and to show off its mechanics.

BRB using an auto aim to do all the work for you

BRB 1 button takedowns

WHere are the gadgets? where are the options for taking down enemies? where are the options for traversing the environment? Where is the customizable gun?

WTF was with turning a semi realistic stealth game into a retarded action spin off of the Bourne identity.

And not to mention no Micheal Ironside.

"Where are the gadgets? where are the options for taking down enemies? where are the options for traversing the environment? Where is the customizable gun? "
Except for the customizable gun, they're all there - they showed plenty of it in various off stage E3 demos, and the game feels amazing.
It looks like a good blend of Conviction and Chaos Theory (which are the two best games in the series IMO) with something unique thrown on top.
And if it will have something akin to the realistic difficulty level of Conviction, then it will probably be more demanding and have more depth than most games anyway. The only thing I missed there was the ability to carry bodies, which seems to be making a comeback in Blacklist.

Anyone who disagreed with that is a tool.

These modern "gamers" have no appreciation for depth at all, aslong as something looks like a micheal bay film with lots of shiny it looks "good".
vortis  +   823d ago
The tools seem to be disagreeing with everyone.

And @ CommonSense, if we can't base the game on the CG trailer, the gameplay trailer and a complete GAMEPLAY WALKTHROUGH of the game then what can we base it on? In all three of those Sam was a super bada$$ killing-machine mofo like any other generic super bada$$ killing-machine mofo.

Where in any of that did you see something unique, new, intriguing or different? If that's what they showed us obviously that's what they want us to think about the game, otherwise they would have done something like Watch Dogs.

So Sam Fisher likes to kill people alot huh? Too bad he's no where near the legendary Solid Snake. Stealth is not about frickin killing people around and starting a gun fight, it's about sneaking and bypassing enemy patrol undetected and if necessary, put them to sleep or knock them out but not kill them and leave a mess! That's not what the father of stealth Hideo Kojima taught us.

And that's what the first 3 games were about, total stealth. The stealth in Splinter Cell was much better than MGS when it first started, much like Thief had better stealth as well. But now Splinter Cell is a shadow of its former self, because it's not just about the shadows anymore.

IDK...I understand people lambasting the "new" fisher. But throughout the series we knew he was a badass. But through all the stories his stress over double crossings, thinking his daughter was dead and all that jazz had pushed him passed being the stealthy man we once knew. I understand really, but he has grown an IDGAF attitude through all these stories and has stated he'll kill anyone in his way. So I understand peoples omg the old fisher is gone but we've been led up to this point within the stories.

Dumbed Down gameplay for r tards.

I think everyone should calm their tits. I too enjoyed the first three splinter cell games and I too was a little disheartened at the e3 gameplay but I think they did make the game to be played both ways. We live in new times. Pew, pew explosions sell nowadays and if they hadn't catered to the majority at e3 this game would not sell.

The stealth is still there as the devs said if you so choose to play it that way. MGS4 did the same thing and that was still an amazing game in my opinion.

On another note it does go with the lore as above poster has said. Sam really could give less of a crap right now. He's no longer bound by third echelon like in the first three. Considering how decent Conviction was I'd say give it a shot before you utterly denounce it.

People need to calm down.
Conviction offered a new mechanic ... that is optional. This latest game is no different. Except the fact Michael Ironside will not be voicing Sam Fisher. Could have they had Sam Fisher find out he had a son? This is known while saving his sons life in a secret operation. Sam Fisher is gunned down, and his son (Sam Fisher Jr.) finds out from 3rd echelon the identity or connection of who Sam is (or was). This in return motivates his son to continue and finish the conflict at hand, in honor of his father. The next game can be Sam's son finding who is responsible for his fathers death. ... This is just a thought is all, a good idea or not? I think so at least. :)
