Preview: Spies vs. Mercenaries in Splinter Cell Blacklist

Splinter Cell Blacklist ​is bringing back one of my favorite multiplayer experiences of all time. As a young gamer in the early days of Xbox Live it was a one of a kind experience that only enhanced my love of the stealth-action genre. Of course I am talking about the Spies vs. Mercenaries mode that is making a comeback in Blacklist​. The first game that introduced it was Splinter Cell Pandora Tomorrow and at the time there was nothing like it, and for the most part there still isn't. I am very excited, to say the last, to hear that they are bringing this mode back.

That charm worked the first time around, and it was a good starting point for the game series. Dead Island: Riptide ​feels more like an expansion pack that Deep Silver has dubbed a sequel and charged full price for.
