First 10 minutes PC Wii U Xbox 360 PS3

Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Blacklist came out this week while we were in Cologne, which is why we're running a bit late with the videos. Before we can find a bit of time to capture some multiplayer footage, here is a bunch of videos taken from the single player campaign of the 360 version. We'll also try to record some PC footage as well, but it won't be before the second part of next week at best. Note that one of the videos is in French so our French members could hear that Sam's original voice is still there. If you're interested in a little anecdote, the voice actor playing Sam Fisher in French is also Schwarzenegger's official voice in France.

I just downloaded this today and will play it after work. I've heard if you play it on perfectionist it's more like the old stealth games, which I prefer. The gameplay reminds me a lot of the older games in some of the videos so I'm excited. Is Splinter Cell back?? Maybe!

The only bitch I have about this game is... they should have just gave the main character a different name. This is not Sam Fisher. His personality is different, the voice doesn't fit, etc.. I really miss Ironside's voice and personality. If only they had called him something other than Sam Fisher, I could deal a new character. This is hard to deal with though.

I am quite impressed though with the detail. Even the 360 version looks good, but after playing this for a few minutes on a GTX 780, I'm pleasantly surprised that the game is better looking than I was expecting.

yeh visuals looks decidedly current gen - what I mean by that is that I think i'm finally at a place now where i'm more than ready for next gen.

I do find it daft that his suit has bright green lights on it when he's in the shadows and the games based around stealth and the concept they're not suppose to be able to see you.

What's up with Sam Fisher? Why does he look younger with each new game yet his hair is gray? Is he suffering the same disease as Isaac Clarke?

The game is pretty damn good as long as you play ghost.

The way he looks is indeed rediculous. Made worse by the phone calls he has with his daughter. There are the odd things i still don't like, but generally it's a lot of fun.

Playing Ghost and Perfectionist is the way this game was meant to be played, it's surprisingly fluid and a lot of the levels are open to speed runs and certain degrees of timing that allow you to improve with every session.

A bit of a sleeper hit as I wasn't looking out for this one so colour me pleasantly surprised.

Ok, couple things are just plain annoying.

When you restart a checkpoint (which you do often if you're playing ghost) the game defaults you to the silenced pistol, even though you've exclusively been using the non-leathal crossbow

Some genius thought it was a good idea to have the "hold square" as both picking up bodies AND pick up weapon...which is usually sat right next to the body...fuck the person who came up with that idea.

I really miss the lock picking too.

On the plus side, there is a lot to do. Really lenghty main missions, side missions (solo or co-op), wave based horde missions. The co-op missions arn't all that meaty though imo and have no real narrative. But they work well as stealth focused bite sized chunks in solo (there are no checkpoints)

It's good though, not quite a return to form (chaos theory/SC), but so much better then conviction and double agent and maybe even pandora tomorrow.

Game looks good on daylight missions on PC (Maxed out 7990 here) the engine shows its age though it looks pretty good overall.

At night however, the game looks dated. Lightning is very past gen so it looks basically "meh".

Gameplay is rock solid though, I'm enjoying the game a lot.

OOOH Man i'm addicted to this game. My and my cousin or brother have been playing co op missions. One small mistake and we start all over from the beginning. We go through each mission a little further each time until we figure it out, and it never gets tiring. It's just so fun and challenging. Rewarding. I've never been this addicted to a splinter cell game. Love it
