It's hard to know what to think about the next Splinter Cell right now. I liked Conviction, but the last Sam Fisher game was a clear break with some of the series' more iconic elements. Blacklist is clearly trying to bring some of that tech/stealth feel back while also expanding the options and scope of the game.
This video shows how some of that will play out, with the same area done in non-lethal and more aggressive playthroughs and puts Sam's new mini-drone and other gear and moves in the spotlight. The game looks nice, but I don't know that I'll be swayed until I get Blacklist in my hands myself.
