Splinter Cell: Blacklist review round-up

Stealthly super-agent Sam Fisher returns for his latest round of neck-snapping, high-tech adventuring with the launch of Splinter Cell: Blacklist for PlayStation 3, PC, Xbox 360 and Wii U. Developed by Ubisoft Toronto under the watchful eye of former Assassin’s Creed bigwig Jade Raymond, Blacklist introduces a number of new mechanics to the stealth-action franchise, which has been going strong for over a decade now.

This time around, Fisher (played by series newcomer Eric Johnson) leads his team at Fourth Echelon against a terrorist group known as The Engineers, who have lined up a series of attacks against U.S. assets known as The Blacklist. In addition to the single-player experience, players can also team up for some co-op action and head online for multiplayer mayhem.

Reviews have now started to stealthily make their way online, and we’ve rounded up a heap of them below.
