Splinter Cell Blacklist Review | NZGamer

NZGamer: "Despite a few minor flaws here and there, Splinter Cell: Blacklist is a stellar game, especially in a market that’s saturated with with generic shooters. The melding of Conviction’s third person shooter elements and more traditional Splinter Cell gameplay are more than the sum of their parts here. No doubt about it, this is the definitive Splinter Cell experience. I’d even go as far as to say it’s the best stealth game of this console generation. Sorry, Kojima." (PC, PS3, Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Blacklist, Wii U, Xbox 360) 9.2/10

this game is okay, I'm halfway through on perfectionist. It's not very hard, shooting lights out and stealth kills are cake. Story is forgettable. Voice acting is fantastic. TLOU has better gameplay and presentation. Hard to go from AAA to Ubisoft garbage

You guys' taste in games sucks @ss. TLOU is a great game, but it's overrated. I have enjoyed Splinter Cell Blacklist just as much. It's definitely one of the best games I have played this generation.

And I don't know how it looks on console, but on PC Splinter Cell Blacklist looks absolutely amazing. It is one of the best looking games on PC and easily crushes any game on consoles. There's your presentation for you.

Splinter Cell Blacklist is actually a more challenging game than TLOU, so I don't know why you are complaining about that.

Blacklist is the very best stealth game I have played. It beats out all my favorites from the past like Tenchu Stealth Assassin's, Splinter Cell Chaos Theory and Thief The Dark Project.

your crazy bro, shooting out lights with minimal alert from enemies is retarded. saying "hey come here" to an enemy is even more dumb. LastofUs had way better stealth mechanics, it made more sense in the universe.

Yeah, I've never been a fan of the gunplay or controls in splinter cell. This one doesn't do anything to stand out but it's not terrible by any means. I'd give it an 8 personally. Still an A-

Edit: just read the guy saying its the best stealth game of the generation. Really now? This game doesn't even touch mgs4 graphically or in terms of mechanics or story and we're talking 2013 vs 2008 here? Come on guy. Must be another one of those stealth game fanboys.

Are you completely blind? MGS4 looks mediocre by today's standards. Blacklist looks much better.

And the stealth mechanics in MGS4 are a joke and don't hold a candle to Blacklist. MGS4 feels a generation behind.

uhm MGS4 is almost 8 years old? sooooo not sure why u would compare.....

how does splinter cell stealth better from mgs?

splinter cell's ai is so easily predictable.

for 1 if someone sees u most of the time they dont pickup their radio and call in a sweep team (mgs2) ......
