Aug 23, 2013I decided to go with this version over the others because of the Wii u features and off screen play. But was not sure it was any good due to no reviews. I have been playing it for several hours and I'm safe to say it's fantastic. Graphics and frame rate is great and off screen play is awesome. I've played all the splinter cells and this is one of the best. Don't understand why reviewers can't be arsed to review it on Wii u or if they have their reviews aren't on here but it's safe to say it's a great game.… Full Review »
Aug 20, 2013Shocked there are no reviews yet. I'll keep it short. I've been playing Splinter Cell Blacklist on Wii U for the better part of today and have a very good idea of how it is. Breathe easy, it is actually really good. On par with the other versions, only the PC version outpaces it. A bonus is it doesn't have the screen tearing like the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions. It all runs very smoothly, though I had slight hiccups in the frame rate during cutscenes. The gadgets like the little drone copter work in a really fun way on the gamepad. Best part is It came with the codes all copies come with for extra suits and weapons that help without actually cheating. The off screen play is very awesome, which is why I bought it. Runs pretty smooth. This isn't a port, it's a fully featured version created along side the other versions. Only thing missing is local co-op, all online features are there and still good.
All in all this version is the one to get, unless you want to play a ton of online. While it's actually very good, there isn't the big pool of players like other systems. The players that are there are fun to run around with. Community is pretty cool, just small. Hopefully that will change now that people are starting to pick up the system.… Full Review »
