A group of terrorists calling themselves The Engineers has had enough of US military occupation all over the world and initiates a terror ultimatum called the Blacklist – a deadly countdown of escalating attacks on US interests. When our nation is threatened, the president turns to one man and one man only: Sam Fisher. Armed with state-of-the-art technology, top-of-the-line gadgets, deadly combat abilities, and an elite team of experts, Sam Fisher holds nothing back to get the job done using whatever means necessary.
Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell® Blacklist™ Deluxe Edition comes with all the essential weapons, gadgets, and gear for you to become Sam Fisher and stop the escalating Blacklist threats. With two bonus missions and five bonus suits, armor upgrades, and weapons, you’ll be prepared to stop the attacks!
Single-player and multiplayer co-op missions: Dead Coast and Billionaire’s Yacht. Bonus suits, weapons, and gear:
Five powerful weapons for any play style: VSS Sniper Rifle, M1014 Shotgun, 416 Assault Rifle, F40 Pistol, and Tactical Crossbow with Sleeping Gas Bolts.

Five armor accessories: Gold Sonar Goggles, Amber Sonar Goggles, Ghost Boots, Armored Boots, and Tactical Gloves.
Operate Without Restrictions: Sam is back in his tactical suit and goggles, and he’s more lethal and agile than ever. Granted the freedom to do whatever it takes to stop the Blacklist, Sam flies from exotic locales to U.S. cities as he races against the clock to find out who’s behind this devastating threat.
Own Your Play Style: Splinter Cell Blacklist builds on the stealth roots of the franchise, while exploring new directions to embrace the realms of action and adventure. Players can define their personal play styles and be rewarded for those choices.
Ghost players want to remain undetected.
Assault players rely on instincts and frontal blow to deal with a situation.
Panther players look for lethality in the most efficient and silent way.
Tools of the Trade: Take down The Engineers by using new gadgets such as the upgraded Snake Cam and Micro-trirotor Drone. Splinter Cell Blacklist is also bringing back fan-favorites like the Sticky Shocker and the brutal, curved Karambit knife. Fans of stealth will be happy to make the most of Sam’s sneaking abilities to abduct and carry enemies, while Killing In Motion allows the player to strike with surgical precision by marking and executing multiple enemies in one fluid motion.
Build a New Echelon: 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 the 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 4th Echelon to receive data about mission objectives while on the move. With the SMI, players can take advantage of the universal game economy system that allows players to fully customize and upgrade Sam, his suit, goggles, weapons, the Paladin and much more.
Spies vs. Mercs Returns: Spies vs. Mercs is back with an new take on asymmetrical gameplay. Players will be able to face off in teams of 4 all the while creating their very own Spy or Merc according to their playstyles via thorough customization elements. The original Classic Spies vs. Mercs experience also makes its long awaited comeback for the fans.
COOP: With the SMI, the lines are blurred between the single campaign and COOP as the narrative is deepened with Sam and Briggs. Earn in-game currency and unlock additional weapons or gadgets via specialized missions assigned by Grim, Briggs, Charlie and Kobin.

Splinter Cell Blacklist is an extremely well done game. Though certain plot elements could have been better, missions are diverse and the game is great.
The plot is the worst part of the game- it is very dry, and has next to no character development. Some missions do not flow with the campaign either.
Mechanically the game is quite strong. On higher difficulties stealth is very tough but entirely possible, and always seems a better alternative then gunfights. Most missions have a strong map with many ways to tackle the objective. Side missions are often built in such a way that you are forced not to raise an alarm, and this causes players to learn the mechanics.
Multiplayer is by far the best part of the game. This is far different than a conventional first person shooter, as multiplayer modes focus primarily on stealth when going for an objective, and intimidation when attempting to defend it.
Art and sound is very well done, as important sounds stand out and it is wholly possible to discern an enemy location based simply on the sounds of voice and footsteps. Graphics are crisp and the overall theme is very aesthetically pleasing.
