Voice Acting: 9/10
Replay Value: 8/10

Notes: I'm a fan of the retro Splinter Cell games like Chaos Theory and Double Agent, so I was a bit hesitant to try this one out. You've might of heard it said that this game brings back the nostalgia but has mixed in some Conviction, and I'd have-to-half agree. It's lacking alot of things that really made Fisher feel like a Splinter Cell such as computer hacking, decryption deciphering, searching file cabinets, etc.. Blacklist does however have a modified version of computer hacking using a simple button press. A few moves are gone as well like the "split jump," but in their place Sam has a whole new arsenal of CQC takedowns at his disposal. Sam now moves quicker and smoother across the environment, and has a few cool toys to work with too. For all the old school Splinter Cell fans out there, I recommend picking this up because it is now again possible to "ghost" your way through a level, although some moments you're forced to engage.

Negatives: Sam Fisher is missing his "real" voice, plus he looks about 30.
The Heavily Armoured enemies are irritating if engaging.
The 360 version has two discs that you have to swap between.

my wife and I look for the 2 player games mostly, and most of the new games aren't very good when it come to 2 player. but this is the best we've played in a long time.. the controls aren't very good but the game in split screen mode is awesome. highly recommend this game for the couples out there like us, kick back on cold winter nights and make a game of it.

After playing Splinter Cell Conviction, my expectations were really high for this game. However, the game design is all about nice graphics and as a result, it runs choppy, and the aiming controls are horrible. I only say this, because I feel that Splinter Cell Conviction was masterful in comparison. This latest instalment left me frustrated and annoyed as a gamer, because I feel the game was difficult to play as a result of bad physics and gameplay issues. It looks amazing, but that cannot compensate for sluggish controls.

Overall, I would not suggest renting this game, especially after playing Splinter Cell Conviction which I gave a 10/10 review.
