Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Blacklist is a third-person oriented Action-Adventure Stealth game, which represents the seventh installment in the best-selling Splinter Cell series. The game is focused around the return of Sam Fisher, serving as the leader of a new, more clandestine and untainted Echelon unit, and the unit's task to stop a countdown of terrorists events aimed at American assets around the world. Game features include multiplayer and co-op game support, the fluid tag-based "Killing in Motion" game mechanic and the option to complete missions by stealth.
Stop the Blacklist Countdown Before It's Too Late
The United States has a military presence in two thirds of the countries around the world. A group of 12 have had enough and initiate a terror ultimatum called the Blacklist - a deadly countdown of escalating terrorist attacks on US interests. Sam Fisher is the leader of the newly formed Fourth Echelon unit: a clandestine unit that answers solely to the President of the United States. Sam and his team must hunt down these terrorists by any means necessary, and stop the Blacklist countdown before it reaches zero.
Key Game Features
- Operate without Restrictions - Sam is back in his tactical suit and goggles, and he's more deadly than ever. He is the only secret operative with the power to act above the law, and uses ruthless methods to interrogate enemies in order to extract crucial information that will prevent the next Blacklist attack. Pursuing the terrorists to the far reaches of the world, Sam flies from exotic locales to US cities as he races against the clock to find out who's behind the Blacklist. Thrilling gameplay is enhanced by full motion performance capture, creating a highly cinematic experience.
- Killing in Motion - Always one step ahead, the Killing in Motion game mechanic lets Sam strike with lethal precision by marking multiple enemies, and then eliminating them all in one fluid motion. Active Sprint allows him to traverse the environment easily and fluidly, climb walls and leap over barriers in order to reach his next target while on the move.
- The Choice to Utilize Ghost Abilities - Players have the option of utilizing Stealth-based Ghost abilities to complete missions with minimal spilling of blood.
- Unleash the Power of Fourth Echelon Prototypes - Infiltrate terrorist cells by using new gadgets such as the upgraded snake cam and micro tri-rotor drone which allows Sam to scout ahead, mark targets remotely, distract enemies, or explode with frag grenade force. Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Blacklist is also bringing back fan-favorites like the sticky shocker, and for close quarters combat, players can wield the curved and brutal Karambit knife.
- Build a New Echelon - With a mandate directly from the president, Sam is building a whole new Echelon unit; his team, his way. Anna "Grim" Grimsdottir is his technical operations manager, CIA operative Isaac Briggs brings additional firepower, and resident hacker Charlie Cole rounds out his support crew. Fourth Echelon is a fully mobile ops unit with unlimited resources and cutting-edge technology aboard the repurposed stealth airliner, the Paladin.
- Enjoy a Fully Integrated Experience - Sam and his team are aware of terrorist attacks in real time thanks to the Strategic Mission Interface (SMI). The SMI allows the team to receive data about mission objectives while on the move. Players can earn money for completing missions and objectives and buy upgraded weapons and items from the SMI hub aboard the Paladin.

Your rules your way exactly how the game is meant to be played - you really get to decide what you do on all missions
yes there are a few sections in the game when it is required not to kill anyone or not to get caught but these add to the fun - whatever diffculty you are playing on
Kill or knock out your choice - kill everyone in your path in the level and face high alert or knock out and hide bodies and sneak past guards as if you were never there
Great full of missions replayability on them is fun - pick levels and try a different method than before - it has never been so fun to try in a splinter cell game before
When on missions - it really needs you to think i'm in a situation what do i do, how will i pass the guards and what playstyle i will use

The game not only encourages you to be creative but at times demands it. Hiding in shadows is far less effective and enemies are much smarter IMO, they will find flanking routes if they find you and always keep sharp. For example, you might need to distract guards, disable lights and disable an isolated all in a very short space of time, etc.
The stealth element is perfect on this game, you have to choose your paths carefully and decide how to deal with any enemies you come across (kill,Ko, or leave alone). It also builds up a good suspense at times, when many enemies are very close to you and are searching the area. Furthermore, it is also satisfying silently taking out enemies searching for you, in the most trickiest of situations (surrounded, narrow corridors etc).
There is also a nice variety of enemies in the game, with each requiring a special approach or technique to dwal with. I do not want to go further into this as it could spoil the game.
The guns were nicely designed in the game and each one had it's own distinct advantages, so you never get stuck/bored with one.
With regards to gadgets, they are not as good as the ones in CT and DA. They did not seem as sophisticated and nowhere near as cool, e.g. Sticky camera could not be picked up and the image quality was barely half as good, and did not even have different vision modes. However, they were nonetheless fun to use and helpful.
Finally, what I missed from previous splinter cells was capturing enemies to interrogate them and the signature weapons such as the OCP or SC-20, also I do miss Michael Ironsides voice. However, with all these factors taken into account, this game is a worthy addition to the SC series and certainly one of the better games out in the market.

Arrived in good time and good order. Game itself is as you would expect of a Splinter Cell series, in fact better. Graphics are better and baddies are tougher. Read morePublished 4 months ago by wizwozuk
