Ghost, Panther or Assault- which way will you play Sam Fisher’s latest adventure?
Three different ways to play the game certainly adds up to an unexpectedly deep play experience. As far as Splinter Cell games go, Blacklist is definitely something different too. Since this time around Sam is the one giving the orders and not taking them, he can change things up on the fly and go loud or choose to stay quiet and operate from the shadows. That should give longtime fans of the series something more to think about when they’re on their way to completing objectives.
I have to say too that I wasn’t the biggest believer in Blacklist (especially when it was revealed that Michael Ironside wouldn’t be back as the voice of Sam), but I’m warming up to Ubisoft’s latest spy thriller with every new trailer and press release. It’s true that it doesn’t look like your typical Splinter Cell, but that might not be a bad thing.
Splinter Cell Blacklist launches on the Xbox 360, PS3, PC and Wii U on August 20th. You can check out our preview of the game right here.
