I couldn't play the game for more than an hour at a time because I only play the hardest difficulty. And it was hard. However, this game was good. Nice to look at, good mapping...the only problem was that stealth vs. combat was unbalanced. This game is stealth, but everyone already knows that.
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.
