Default Splinter Cell: Blacklist

Releases tomorrow, anyone getting it?
From the review it sounds like its a mixture between Conviction and Chaos Theory. So more emphasis on stealth then Conviction but still has some fun "bad ass" elements like Conviction had.

Looks pretty dope, apparently the storyline is really intriguing.

I actually pre-ordered it ages ago when it was supposed to be out in March. Now it comes out when I just started school on top of working 50+ hours. Bastards. I still haven't finished Last of Us so I'm gonna get my money back on this.

I've decided not to get it.
A month until GTA V comes out and I'm so busy these days with work & family life. I'm afraid I'll miss out on NBA 2K14 & FIFA 14 this year too because of GTA V. I'll still buy Battlefield 4 & Ghosts on PS4 and most likely Watch Dogs.

I think that's about all I'll be buying because of GTA V.
I've already decided not to buy Madden 25 either.

You should, it's really good ... & I don't get easily impressed ... this game is like a marine version of Hitman.

Is it closer to the earlier games like Chaos Theory or more along the lines of Conviction. As in, can I get through the game without killing dudes?

Yeah you can go through most of the game without killing anybody. I'm actually doing a ghost playthrough right now on the hardest difficulty.

It's almost like Chaos Theory with Conviction controls/movement, although it is definitely a little more "Hollywood" than Chaos Theory. Trust me though, if you like the old Splinter Cells, you'll like this.

Dammit, I don't have time for this ****. But yeah I'm a huge fan of the older games. Chaos Theory is one of my all time favs. Got the maps completely memorized except maybe the North Korea missions.

So I finally gave up and bought this game. I'm only still in Benghazi but I am impressed so far. I started the game on Realistic and am trying to play as a ghost (nothing lethal, not get detected) which apparently gets you better ratings. Very good so far and you really have to tread carefully in order to not keep reloading to the last checkpoint, which I did lots of on the roof tops!

I disliked Double Agent for the most part and never touched Conviction after the first playthrough, but I'm really liking this so far.

Look, you gotta utilize his items perfectly enable for you to fully enjoy the game. My friends are going rambo-style, & no wonder they told me they didn't really like it. Gotta have patience & imagination to enjoy this game.

That's all I got to say for that.
