Experiences in Splinter Cell Blacklist

Post  AKMARK5000 on Fri Dec 06, 2013 10:53 am

I had such a good time with Splinter Cell Conviction that Splinter Cell Blacklist was my next game purchase.  Blacklist continues the story character brilliantly in the storyline.  In fact, I dare say that the actual author of the Splinter Cell Series, Tom Clancy, had a part in writing it before his death... if not the entire story!

So, Blacklist has the two player cooperative mode like Splinter Cell Conviction.  Missions are split between survival maps against waves of enemies and stealth missions in which you must not be caught.  A mini campaign is present, but it encompasses whole different campaign storyline compared to the single player campaign.

Now, it does have a few lines of "bad language," but it is not over-the-top or gratuitously used and nothing more than what is heard on cable television or a PG-13 rated move... after all it's a violent game with killing and some blood.  I'm sure almost anyone over 15 can handle it.

Blacklist is kind of expensive at the moment, but I purchased it during a 60% STEAM Sale.  For what this game offers, Splinter Cell Blacklist makes an excellent gaming experience at almost any price.

Splinter Cell Blacklist And The UPLAY Issue

Post  AKMARK5000 on Fri Dec 06, 2013 1:01 pm

Considering my great experience with the UBISOFT games, 95% of the time face an abysmal experience with UBISOFT's DRM.  Let me explain, when a game developed by or published by UBISOFT is bought from STEAM, the game will also use an additional DRM called UPLAY.  UPLAY is another game platform designed by UBISOFT who responsible for games such as Splinter Cell Blacklist. 

So, you could buy from the UBISOFT, but I still recommend buying from STEAM or a game shop that sells STEAM redeemable key codes because STEAM is far more superior and should be supported... period.  Do not misunderstand though, UBISOFT puts out some really nice games... it's UPLAY the messes up.

Issue #1:

Starting the game using the game's icon or link in STEAM is fine. After UPLAY auti-log-in (or manual log-in) the player is presented with an option box to choose the regular or deluxe game version. Whatever version is chosen, when the OK button is clicked, the UPLAY application or the game launcher stops working.

Resolution: UBISOFT hired some incompetent developers and management that do not pay attention to detail and final products.

Solution (temporary workaround):

Uninstall the UPLAY Client Software that is on your computer.
Go to http://uplay.ubi.com/en-US/ and download and install a fresh copy of the UPLAY Client Software.

Start the game using the game's icon or link in STEAM. After UPLAY auto-log-in (or manual log-in) the player might be presented with an option box to choose the regular or deluxe game version. At this point in time, DO NOT CLICK THE OK BUTTON... DO CLICK THE CANCEL BUTTON!
