Splinter Cell: Blacklist hate is “uninformed” and unjustified- devs

"We really need to get a demo out there."

Posted By | On 28th, Sep. 2012

Splinter Cell: Blacklist director David Footman says the hate Splinter Cell: Blacklist has gotten ever since its reveal at this year’s E3 has been based on just one showing and is uninformed and unjustified.

“Everyone can make kneejerk reactions to a vertical slice of the game that are really uninformed as to what the whole experience is like,” he said while speaking with Eurogamer. “We really have to be patient as we roll out each item about the game.”

“The proof is always going to be in the pudding,” he continued. “Talk is talk, and it is just all talk right now. We really need to get a demo out there, for people to see how you can ghost levels, to see the gameplay. It seems to be an overreaction because people are just seeing the ‘pow!’, the explosiveness.

“What we showed at E3 was very explosive, very violent. That kind of stuff tends to get shown, but as we roll out different aspects of the game you’ll see a lot more diversity and lot more of what hardcore fans are expecting to see.

“What people won’t say, but what they’ll dance around, is that is the price of freedom to protect Americans and their sedans and SUVs,” he concluded.

Well, the gameplay, honestly, has looked pretty interesting, if not what we expect from a Splinter Cell game. What do you think? Tell us in your comments below.
