If you enjoyed Splinter Cell: Conviction then this game is for you. Most of the previous games mechanics are present here from the executions to the "last known location silhouettes". Definitely worth a rent although it wont blow you away.
The story is actually very good. A terrorist organization tell the US government to withdraw all troops in foreign countries or it will continue with a series of attacks on US soil.
The new play style rating systems add a new incentive to how you approach each mission. Ghost (stealth), Panther (stalk & kill), and Assault (guns blazing).
Some clunky menus and convoluted upgrade system make time not spent in missions a chore.
Some side missions cannot be completed without help from a coop partner.
The game difficulty is fairly easy on the normal setting.
If you like Splinter Cell then this game is a no-brainer. Its got a cool story and the way that you can approach each mission however you want makes each mission feel different. It absolutely deserves a spot on your GameQ.

When you think about change you think bad because nothing that changes is good am I right? We get so caught up in what we've always done that we grow to hate change. In splinter cell: blacklist Change is a great thing. So much has changed. The voice, controls, visual, game play, characters, relationships, story but in reality nothing has changed. You can still play the game and be completely stealthy at all times or you can run around and shoot em up right in front of their eyes. It feel's fresh, you get rewarded for specific action's you do in the form of compensation which turns into bigger and better gear. The story feel's complete. Sam Fisher is as always awesome and I absolutely applaud ubisoft for the risk because it rewarded me....the gamer. I will admit that my only complaint is when you shoot some guy in the head 4 times he should die, but there's so much great about this game it's hardly an issue.
My Rating for this game is 9/10
P.S This was my first game I got from gamefly. I am EXTREMELY pleased with the excellent service so far. I live in N.C, the game got to me in 3 days, never froze, I enjoyed, and it is now on it's way back to Pittsburgh.
