Awesome!

At first my parents were wondering if it was the right choice,but after a while they really liked it.They even played online with me.It is not too violent;using smoke grenades and tranquilizer guns against enemies.I think if parents are considering letting their son/daughter play this game it is a good choice because it uses stealth and tactics(dont forget the amazing graphics).If your child if fairly responsible they will be fine with this. Thanks : )

A fantastic game with gritty themes

It is a really great game if you are a fan of the series. Yes it is violent but it is always because they are bad and if they live thousands of Americans will die. It is bloody and gritty at times but also shows a side to killing that isn't nice and is important to realise it affects people unlike call of duty or assassins creed. Overall it is a fantastic game for mature 13 year old or most 14 year olds depending on the kid.

Awesome splinter cell!!

Phenomonal story, awesome graphics, but the violence is for mature teens. The blood is definitly not good for little kids. The language, not good. But apart from that very good game.

Sam Fisher is back,and VIOLENT as EVER!

This review is mainly towards parents: Splinter Cell is a very popular series produced by the famous thriller and action/adventure author Tom Clancy.But im going to get to the point of this game and kind of share with you the story,and what this game contains that may be inappropriate for younger children.The game takes place during a global war between the government and Sam Fisher the leading agent in this assault is forced to start another mission,that mission includes basically a saving the world kind of climax within the storyline or dialogue whichever you prefer.The game does have strong but infrequent language,very few F-words,not like you would see in a GTA game (Grand Theft Auto).But what gamers would love about this game is the stealth/assault choice approach you have to finish your enemies,the smooth combat and cover system provides enjoyable hours of entertainment.With that said,ages 15 and up is best chosen for this mature rated game,but the main concern in this game is definitely the violence,language much iffy compared to brutal takedowns and moral choice of finishing enemies....i hope this review helped some uncertain parents. You're Welcome! :)

Tom Clancys: Splinter Cell Blacklist

Tom Clancys: Splinter Cell Blacklist, was a VERY good game in my opinion. There are not many games who can do the stealth correct. I thought that taking cover, shooting from behind cover, as well as ducking from cover to cover was very well done. You can go through the entire game without killing a single person (Other than people killed in cut scenes) this is where the stealth aspect is put into the game. Weapons such as sleeping gas, to tear gas, can immobilize enemies as you sneak past. The campaign was fairly easy, playing on 'Normal' to 'Easy'. Once you switch to 'Hardened' and 'Perfectionist', the game becomes a lot more enjoyable and challenging. For people who get aggravated easily, I would recommend thinking twice about multiplayer. As a "Newbie" there are many secrets and tricks you would not know. It would become annoying to play against the level 56s (The highest level in the game) who have played the other splinter cells, and/or already know the ropes. The community is small on PC and you get the know the regulars. Going from "Hey this person isn't that good at the game." to "Oh, this guy again, lets leave." to even "Oh this hacker again. Lets leave." I want to tell you, there are about 5 well known hackers and Ubisoft does not take action to it. The people playing multiplayer hardly ever speak on mic or chat unless helping teammates find out where "hostiles" are or to cuss at one another for being good. There is enough action in the game... maybe a little to much... I say this because playing the game will force you to; watch as a man being electrocuted before you save him, kill dogs to protect yourself, slit the throats of others and hear the blood draining out of the cuts, and much MUCH more. Overall, the gameplay and just the game itself is very well done. 4/5.

not that bad

First of all before the parents think this is bad it not the game lets you choose non lethal weapons like stun guns and sleeping gas the game is not as dark and brutal as conviction. Its fun hiding in shadows calling enemies to spook them using cool gadgets like a remote control drone used to scout areas or a proximity mine that emits a harmless shock overall its how your kid plays the game I never kill in the game at all

The Sixth Installment

Splinter Cell Blacklist. The sixth installment to the S.C series. Don't trust common sense media unless it comes to movies. They rate EVERY game inappropriate for children. These people obviously do not under stand the word " Option ". They always say all this stuff is rained upon you and you cannot stop. Okay, so listen. This is a great stealth game! It is fun! You really need to play this game. But that isn't what you came here about, is it? No. You came to see if it is appropriate. Well let me tell you, Sam Fisher is a positive role model because he is fighting spies for the government and taking down bad guys. Language may be an issue. Just turn down the volume. Well, all I have for today! Gonna go play some more!

splinter cell age review

this game has violence but not as much as any other teen rated game and language is medium in the game but there is low drug use.we give our childs army men toys and when it comes to army games there not much difference between toys and games as boys will allways bee influenced by war so it would be good to give them games with positive role models and this games has sam fisher a father deticated to his country and daughter. and the game is basically sneak so violence can be avoided.

Good Game but NOT for Kids

The game is good. It has good features and good plot, but it should not be played by kids younger than 16, 14 should be the minimum if someone is going to play it. It has lots of gore and lots of bad language.

15+!!! Amazing game! CSM overreacting WAY too harshly for this game.

Splinter Cell: Blacklist is an awesome game. I recommend it to anybody wanting the best stealth experience in a game. You don't even have to play any of the previous Splinter Cell games to understand the story or characters. This one was made to welcome new players. As for the violence, NOTHING in the gameplay itself is obscenely violent at all. Even my 8-year old cousin handled it. In the gameplay, There's no spilling blood, No severed limbs, no bodies being blown into pieces, or anything like that. The violence in the gameplay is simmilar to the Uncharted games (which were rated 'T' for teen). The only blood that is in the gameplay is when you shoot an enemy and there's a very small spurt of blood (almost exactly like the Uncharted games). Most the the violence in this game come in the cutscenes where there IS blood spilt on floors and also the aftermath of someone's hand getting cut off. If you're that cautious, just skip the cutscenes. As for language, "f--k" and "s--t" are said in the game, but it's very infrequent. The main character (Sam Fisher) never even says the word "f--k" in the game. he only says "s--t" once or twice. CSM is just overreacting. Seriously? "18+"? Don't hesitate. Great game.

Great game with several options of play

Splinter cell blacklist is your classic shooter game. Or is it? You play as sam fisher a spy trying to stop a organization called blacklist. The blacklist are trying to get Americans to get all military troops of all foreign soil. To do this they have a list of attacks they have released, if American troops aren't of foreign soil in time they strike. You decide how sam fisher neutralizes the threat with three different play styles with various upgrades to match. First is "ghost" including non-lethal takedowns and when possible, leaving the enemies alone . The game encourages play on this style as it gives the most points. Upgrading your suit will be for stealth which will also give you more gadgets. Useful gadgets will be sleeping gas, tri-rotor, and proximity shocker. Next is panther which is silent, quick, and most of all, deadly. You want the same suit upgrades for this one but you might want to try silent weapons and a combat knife instead of your hand for this one. The final play style is all about noise, if you play combat you will have bullet resistant loud armor that can't carry as much gadgets. You want loud weapons explosive ammo and basically anything and everything that will attract attention. For gadgets you want. Frag, incendiary, and flash grenades as well as breaching charges and proximity mines. Depending on your play style a ten year old could play it if they don't mind the occasional swear
