Splinter Cell Blacklist Review – Full-On Summer Blockbuster | Gameranx

Gameranx: "Imagine, if you will, that Paramount and Fox teamed up to make a $200 million theatrical movie based on the TV show 24, which Michael Bay would direct and Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman would write. This movie would pick up the story of Jack Bauer where the show left off, and lead actor Keifer Sutherland would be replaced with Ryan Gosling.

"The resulting film would likely bear a number of similarities to Splinter Cell Blacklist. " (PC, PS3, Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Blacklist, Wii U, Xbox 360) 7/10

I'm enjoying this so far, but I can't believe it doesn't have a shoulder swap button. That's unforgivable in a 3rd person shooter. It's especially dumb cos the part where you walk holding a captive let's you shoulder swap.

Also would it kill them do have button mapping. That goes for all games. L3 to crouch is not fun.

I love it but the graphics are so so for a game this far in the gen.. having a blast though! A lot of stealth is definitely needed.

That's why I want Syphon Filter to make a come back because more action Stealth games is definitely needed in the video game industry

I know right! I notice that too no shoulder swap button. Ubisoft should be able to patch that...

It's as dumb as them not putting y axis reverse on splinter cell hd. That was a deal breaker for me until they patched it

Can't agree with this review. Splinter Cell Blacklist is the best Splinter Cell I have ever played, even beating out my beloved Chaos Theory. It also is one of the best looking games I have played on PC.

I'm still waiting for my copy but I see where your coming from. I keep hearing good things about the game and the game Chaos Theory is name dropped a lot. Seeing as that game pulled me into the franchise in the first place I'd be happy to play a game half as good as that if not better. From what I heard this game is at least par with CT. Good enough for me.

I think it's just you guys' Wii U version because I have it on PS3 and I don't have long load screens.
