Watch us play Splinter Cell: Blacklist from 5pm BST

Out of the shadows.

It's probably not fashionable to say, but when it comes down to the nitty gritty of the actual game I've always preferred Splinter Cell to Metal Gear. The questionable politics of Sam Fisher's world aren't a measure for the thoughtful insanity of Solid Snake's, but the actual sneaking's always been a little more satisfying.

So I've been enjoying Blacklist the past few days - it's an attempt to fold the out and out action of Conviction into a more traditional Splinter Cell, and even though it's guilty of some awful moments by and large it's a fun game. You can see some of that for yourself from 5pm BST when Ian Higton plays through some single player and multiplayer from Blacklist. Join us!
