OXCGN’s Splinter Cell Blacklist Review- Modern stealth perfected


"From the bottom of my heart, I can assuredly say that Splinter Cell: Blacklist is the true successor to Chaos Theory, and is not only the best Splinter Cell title ever released, but quite possibly one of the greatest stealth games I’ve ever played."

This game is great addition in the Sam fisher series and for stealth fans in general. Love it

It's good to see the series go back to its roots a bit mroe this time.

Pintheshadows1703d ago

They have taken what made the old titles so good and smashed it into Conviction which, I have to say, I liked. It felt more like it should have been called 'Bourne', but still, a solid game.

With that amalgamation you have all the options you could possibly want and the way it tracks your style of play is really well done.

I feel MGSIV was the first stealth game to really give you options. You could go in guns blazing if you wanted (not best option though), or you cold sneak around in boxes, break necks and kill nobody.

The ability to make a game that gives you options is what makes a classic.

Splinter Cell gave you options like that years ago. Thief gave you loads of options as well, I don't see how MGSIV could possibly be the first stealth game to give you options. It's just completely untrue.

Logak1703d ago

Don't lie, MGS is a linear and above very easy stealth series. The first true stealth game, one with huge amounts of choice and massive levels are the Thief games. The amount of choice those games give you are outstanding,
If it wasn't for the Thief games back in 1998 (ironically, the same year as MGS), I don't think we would have such great stealth games such as Splinter Cell... Or at least not have them in their current form.

So If I loved Splinter Cell Chaos theory and the stealthy Double Agent missions I will love this?

Pintheshadows1703d ago (Edited 1703d ago )


In fact if you loved Chaos Theory you will be very very happy indeed.

Nitrowolf21703d ago

you'll love it, only issue is if u are good at it expect a ton of rage quits

gaminoz1703d ago

I guess it depends on how you play it?

BadCircuit1703d ago

Why rage quits if you are good at it?

Nitrowolf21703d ago

not you, the othert team, I just gopt out of 6 sessions, 4/6 rage quits. I shall montage this shit

Benchm4rk1703d ago

Absolutely mate. The extra gadgets you get and the options you have make this the best Splinter cell. So many options to choose from. Get the black edition or 5th freedom edition. You get upgraded weapons and suits available after mission 1 and gives you more gadgets and weapons to choose from and use during the game

Belgavion1703d ago

They finally nailed it!

gaminoz1703d ago

It's been a long while that a Splinter Cell has grabbed me. I thought maybe its time had gone.

ufo8mycat1703d ago

Splinter cell is back!
It's about god damn time
