IncGamers' Tim McDonald gets alternately stealthy and shooty with Splinter Cell: Blacklist.
From the review: "I’ve been a bit mean on poor old Splinter Cell: Blacklist, I admit. Prior to release, every single news item I wrote about the game mentioned – somewhere – the fact that Michael Ironside would not be returning as Sam Fisher. In all seriousness, his Sam Fisher-like disappearance isn’t necessarily a bad thing because Ironside didn’t seem to care overmuch about Splinter Cell: Conviction‘s script, and his replacement here does a passable job. He’s not Michael Ironside (and thus I still don’t quite buy him as Sam Fisher) and he’s rather bland, but it’s still rare for him to elicit a reaction other than “well, I guess this guy’s okay.”
(I’ve also spent a lot of time calling it things other than Blacklist. This is a trend that’s going to continue.)"
