Product Description

Platform: PC Download | Edition: Standard

The United States has a military presence in two thirds of countries around the world. A group of 12 have had enough and initiate a terror ultimatum called the Blacklist - a deadly countdown of escalating terrorist attacks on U.S. interests. Sam Fisher is the leader of the newly formed 4th Echelon unit: a clandestine unit that answers solely to the President of the United States. Sam and his team must hunt down these terrorists by any means necessary, and stop the Blacklist countdown before it reaches zero.

Key Features:

  • Operate without Restrictions
    Sam is back in his tactical suit and goggles, and he’s more deadly than ever. He is the only secret operative with the power to act above the law, and uses ruthless methods to interrogate enemies in order to extract crucial information that will prevent the next Blacklist attack. Pursuing the terrorists to the far reaches of the world, Sam flies from exotic locales to U.S. cities as he races against the clock to find out who’s behind the Blacklist. Thrilling gameplay is enhanced by full motion performance capture, creating a highly cinematic experience.
  • Kill in Motion
    Always one step ahead, Killing In Motion lets Sam strike with lethal precision by marking and executing multiple enemies in one fluid motion. Active Sprint allows him to traverse the environment easily and fluidly, climb walls and leap over barriers in order to reach his next target while on the move.
  • Unleash the power of 4th Echelon Prototypes
    Infiltrate terrorist cells by using new gadgets such as the upgraded snake cam and micro-trirotor drone which allows Sam to scout ahead, mark targets remotely, distract enemies, or explode with frag grenade force. Splinter Cell Blacklist is also bringing back fan-favorites like the sticky shocker, and for close quarters combat, players can wield the curved and brutal Karambit knife.
  • Build a New Echelon
    With a mandate directly from the President, Sam is building a whole new Echelon unit; his team, his way. Anna “Grim” Grimsdottir is his technical operations manager, CIA operative Isaac Briggs brings additional firepower, and resident hacker Charlie Cole rounds out his support crew. 4th Echelon is a fully mobile ops unit with unlimited resources and cutting edge technology aboard the repurposed stealth airliner, the Paladin.
  • Enjoy a Fully Integrated Experience
    Sam and his team are aware of terrorist attacks in real time thanks to the Strategic Mission Interface (SMI). The SMI allows the team to receive data about mission objectives while on the move. Players can earn money for completing missions and objectives and buy upgraded weapons and items from the SMI hub aboard the Paladin.

4.0 out of 5 stars Do not install patch 1.2 September 27, 2013
By Az17
Platform for Display:PC| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
From one customer to another, if you value your saved game or the ability to play the game whatsoever then whatever you do don't install patch 1.2. I had installed this game with patch 1.1 and beaten the first two levels my first play through. Wanting to call it a night I had quit the game and shutoff my computer. Upon next boot of "UPlay", required, I was notified that patch 1.2 was available via the auto-patcher so I went ahead thinking my copy would run smoother. Not only was my save gone but it was an off and on process at running the game. There were workarounds online but I couldn't get them to work so I started from scratch.

My next install went along with patch 1.1 which works well. 10hrs and 53mins later and I have completed the entire campaign. I can reboot into my save as one would expect as well. The Ubisoft forums for Blacklist end with people complaining about the aforementioned patch 1.2 with no real resolution suggested so I wouldn't hold your breath on a patch 1.3.

The game itself is fantastic, it's only held back by issues with the cover system, the glitchy targeting through walls in some rare cases and a bit of pop-in though I assume 1.2 would have fixed this. It's everything I loved about Conviction while kicking it up a notch. If it wasn't for the issues with the installation then I'd give this the full five stars but oh well.

4.0 out of 5 stars Like a nice pair of shoes with a few scuff marks August 25, 2013
By Dave
Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is my favorite since Chaos Theory. It feels and plays almost identically to Conviction but with some changes that I really think helped. Stealth is actually possible for one thing. I felt like Conviction didn't give you any other options but to Jason Bourne your way through each level. It brings it back to the games roots. If you still want to run and gun, you can too. It gives you the option. What bugs me with this is that it does give you that option in every level, and then almost always to one degree or another, takes it away. You can be sneaky all you want but there will be some sequence or cutscene that causes everything to blow up in your face and all of a sudden you are cornered and have to shoot your way out. You may want to shoot your way out but have to sneak around, not being able to kill anyone. I loved that CT gave you that option at all times, this game always throws you for a loop. That can be entertaining, kind of like an action movie that keeps you on the edge of your seat but I don't want a movie. I want a game. There are sequences where you are forced to go 1st person, or do the whole attack from the plane CoD style which would have been cool had they not already been done 6 years ago. It's not that big a deal, but if I had wanted those things, I would have played Cod.

The annoying thing that I found with having a choice most of the time is that sometimes trying to stealth your way through is so frustrating, that I would say screw it and frag everyone out. It's the checkpoints that ruin it for me. I can see that making checkpoints greatly reduces the time needed to develop the game but at the cost of making is so freaking annoying!

If you liked any of the Splinter Cells, you will like this game. If you like action games, you will probably like this game.


Level Design: Much better than the old Splinter Cells. There's a lot more choice as to how you want to complete the missions. You can either take everyone on, avoid everyone, or take them out when they're not looking. In fire fights there's good emphasis on flanking. Even the final boss fight was really awesome. It just looks great and plays great.

Replayabilty: Since you have a lot of choices for completing the mission, the game has challenges for specific play styles as well as different sets of weapons and gadgets. The changes in difficulty and the semi-randomness of how enemies are placed and how they behave is nice as well.

Multiplayer: Co-op missions are awesome assuming you can find someone to join you.

Story: This is the best Splinter Cell story so far.

Weaker: Even with good armor, Sam can't take too many shots. This is good.

Performance: I only have a mid-range PC with a mid-range video card, but even with all the settings maxed out, the game still ran pretty smoothly.


Uplay: I really don't see any value with this. It's just another separate login that doesn't really offer anything, aside from locking up parts of my game. This should be removed. Ubisoft, I'm never going to buy games from either your online store or EA's Origins store. Give it up. All Uplay does is add more problems like your old always on DRM. Please remove Uplay from Steam.

Bugs: A lot of people are reporting bugs i.e. Game won't start or multiplayer doesn't work. My guess is the source of these bugs is Uplay. It needs to be removed.

You cannot play this game unless you are connected to the internet. As others have said, unless you are connected to the internet you can't access your save games. Yes, I've disabled the sync with cloud feature. Yes, I've gone through the attempted fixes from forums. Yet, I still cannot play my saves offline. I've contacted Ubisoft Support about this issue and they never responded. Bottom line: bad customer support.

So, if you're going to get this game, buy it for another platform.

Update: 1/6/14 - Ubisoft support got back to me a week later. They let me know that I should download a third party program to back up my game save files, but they didn't have a solution to how to play the game without an internet connection.

Update: 1/8/14 - I'm changing my review from 2 stars to 1 star. Now I'm experiencing all of the crashes that everyone is talking about. I get the Blacklist_DX11_game.exe crash when trying to load missions and other times I get the Blacklist_game.exe other times. The game all of a sudden stopped working. None of the patches or support threads have been able to fix this error for me. So, instead of having to be connected to the internet to play, I just can't play at all anymore.
