Ubisoft: Players are "really hungry" for games like Splinter Cell: Blacklist

Ubisoft reckon that players are “clamouring” for games like Splinter Cell: Blacklist right now, pointing to “a real renaissance in action-adventure”. (PC, PS3, Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Blacklist, Xbox 360)

What does any of that have to do with Splinter Cell? I can't be the only one here to notice an "off topic" game list.
Heartnet  +   1196d ago
It has something to do with what ubisoft say :S which is what this whole article is about
ALLWRONG  +   1196d ago
Show me where UBI mentions any of those games http://www.gamereactor.eu/n... They don't talk about anything other than Splinter Cell. Well?

I'll wait

NO. Im "hungry" For a Real Stealth game like Splinter Cell Chaos Theory. Not some Jason Bourne Crap.
HarryMasonHerpderp  +   1196d ago
The old games were amazing, the best stealth games around at the time in my opinion.
This new game looks boring...
Have they changed Sam's voice too?
Spydiggity  +   1196d ago
yes, there is no way that is michael ironside. very disappointing. though i remember he didn't really wanna do the last one either.

i think the game looks fun though. i really enjoyed conviction.

Yeah I saw some gameplay of the old ones and I plan to get the hd trilogy. Looks a lot better than the newer splinter cell tbh.
GuyThatPlaysGames  +   1196d ago
That's why I'm glad I have the Splinter Cell Trilogy. That's when stealth games were truly stealth.
bahabeast  +   1196d ago
i wana play it even though we could realli use a old style splinter cell game ubisoft notice that action packed is the way to make the money, call of duty, gears of war, halo, uncharted, assasin creed, etc. all of highest selling games are action packed

lets wait and see what the sales say about gamers hunger levels.

Sick and tired of Tom Clancy games...
Erudito87  +   1196d ago
im just hungry its lunch time lol
LightofDarkness  +   1196d ago
Not really. I'm hungry for more stealthy games at the moment. The last good one I played was Deus Ex, and that was nearly a year ago. Get it together, developers!
Summons75  +   1196d ago
No I'm hungry because I haven't eaten in a day and a half and haven't slept. However, I will never pass on a Splinter Cell game...or any Tom Clancy game for that matter.

Kefka likes his stealth.
Capt-FuzzyPants  +   1196d ago
First person shooters or third person shooters? Umm no thank you. I'm actually overloaded on those games. What I am hungry for is RPGs with compelling stories. One that doesnt give me as much choice as Mass Effect or Skyrim. I want something like FF where the characters are bold and not based on me, the player.
Grap  +   1196d ago
interactive Comic is way to go for you because no one like COD Story or BF for RPG games

Why not just wish for more games of all types? Then everyone is happy.
frelyler  +   1196d ago
Why don't I tell you what I want, I'll give you a hint. You guessed wrong. That is the problem with game companies. Everything is being dumbed down for the "mainstream." Good thing this type of behavior does not transcend to sports. "Mommy I don't like it when others tackle me in football and I'm a running back, can you make it so they can't tackle me." Mom responds with, "Well honey what would be the point." This is a question a lot of game companies need to ask themselves. They see COD and then pat themselves on the back about a job well done before any of the actual graphic design part has taken place. Game companies are pompous and think they can look at a statistic and say my product will sell x amount because of the current market trend. I can't wait until gaming falls out of the main stream and I can go back to being considered a loser who stays inside to play video games. At least then I can have my DOTT's, Half-life's and original Deus ex's back without some douche in a tie studying numbers and telling a company what will sell like COD.

so no explanation or valid points as to why you disagree, then my friends those disagrees simply don't count.
DasTier  +   1196d ago
Well I am looking forward to it after the awesome coop from Future Soldier, hopefully they build on that and give us another coop experiance
Bathyj  +   1196d ago
I'm hungry for Ubisoft to stop buttraping their franchises.

Assassin Creed 3 looks good, but Ghost Recon sucked sweaty balls and Blacklist looks to continue in Convictions footsteps and slide further away from its stealth roots.

Really worried about Rainbow 6 at the moment.
SAE  +   1196d ago
Agree , but i liked convection , this doesnt look the same , its faster , which is a bad thing , even though i didnt like the old splinter cell games i think that it was special , the fans must get what they want , maybe if they advertise better people may like the old gameplay , create hype to the special things in the old gameplay , such as the hard gameplay and satisfie to able to kill or to avoid killing which will take skills and thats what people want , they want something they dont get bored of because your skills increase and that change the experince every time ,

well thats what i want , thats what i search for in all the games , only few succes on that such as gt5 / Skate
SAE  +   1196d ago
No need to worry about rainbow 6 , it already looks different , its early to judge it but thats what i saw from the video , rainbow 2 was disapointing to me because they add sprint , i think its a good add but they made the sprint very fast , they just needed to lower it a little bit to make it feel more like rainbow 1 , also the maps wasnt as good as the first one ....

But still , rainbow 6 looks stunning , hope i like it when its released ....

Well thats what i feel :). , just hope that i get fun , thats all i want

I like the new direction of Splinter Cell. I have this on on preorder.
Fez  +   1196d ago
But every game is like this nowadays. Almost none are like the original splinter cell games. I'd be more interested if it went back to the old style, which is why I'm gonna get the hd collection instead.

I was never even a fan of the original splinter cell games but you could tell they were special. Sad to see a game series change from what made it unique.
NYC_Gamer  +   1196d ago
Nah,players are hungry for a pure stealth Splinter Cell.
FunkMacNasty  +   1196d ago
I thought Conviction had plenty of stealth, and the possibilities with the "mark and execute" feature were endless once you figured it out.. so I don't know why people didn't like it. I just hope this next SC game doesn't become like Gears of War, with Sam Fisher running around in brad daylight laying down waves of full-auto fire into relentless hordes of enemies. Hopefully it's still stealthy!
DevilishSix  +   1196d ago
No Ironside, no buy.

So Splinter Cell is action-adventure now?

Oooh, Ubisoft.........
