Splinter Cell: Blacklist reclaims the throne and crown of the stealth game genre, it's been a long time coming but Spies vs. Mercs is back and it's a cracking return to form on all counts.
Am I the only person that does not think highly of this game? Splinter Cell used to be all about the stealth, this is just an action game.
If you haven't played then just SHHHHHHHHH! You can go the entire game without shooting a single bullet, Stealth is back. Is the story as solid as Chaos Theory? No. Is the new voice for sam amazing? No, its passable at best. However, the core mechanics needed for stealth is all there. MP is another story, go on the forums and there is clear division of opinion on the SvM modes. Either way, the game is a solid 8/10 for me as not having Ironside is too big of shame on Ubis part.
I have played it, not even close to the awesomeness of the early splinter cell games.
