Blacklist Back To Roots
Ubisoft have been trying really hard to make sure that those who were disappointed by Splinter Cell Conviction, know that Blacklist intends to go back to the roots for the franchise. Fisher's got his black suit back on, gameplay will be far more stealth oriented and darkness will once again be your greatest ally. Or so they say, at least.
Looking at this trailer, there's a multitude of things fans of the original Splinter Cell trilogy will find out of place. Fisher now carries around a multitude of different weapons, there's story elements and level design that remind you of Call of Duty and some of the scripted set piece moments look like something taken out of the recent Tomb Raider reboot.
Sure, it all looks like it'll be fun to play. But will it be the return to the roots that the fans demand?
