Fans of Sam Fisher rejoice! Last month saw Splinter Cell Conviction free on Xbox One via the magic of Games With Gold and Backwards Compatibility. This has now been followed by the news that the franchise companions of Blacklist and Double Agent are also now available to play on the Xbox One. We might still be a few years from a new Sam Fisher game, so for now we can revisit these classics.
Splinter Cell Blacklist was originally released in 2013 and received favourable reviews. Unleash the power or the most lethal agent to ever exist. You are Sam Fisher, and you’ve been given the ultimate freedom to protect innocents against a series of global terror attacks known as Blacklist – the freedom to use limitless force, to break every law, and to become the globe’s deadliest operative. If you succeed, the President of the United States will deny you exist. If you fail, millions will die. You can read the TiX review of Blacklist here!
Splinter Cell Double Agent hails back to 2006 and again was rated very highly upon release. Veteran agent Sam Fisher is back. But he’s never faced an enemy like this before.
