Get the Tom Clancy back catalogue with the latest Humble Bundle

Here's a fantastic way to play through many of the great Tom Clancy titles from recent years by paying next to nothing (if you want.) The minimum spend appears to be around 70p at the time of writing, which will get you Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six, Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six 3 Gold, Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Vegas, Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Chaos Theory, Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon, and access to the Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege - Multiplayer Beta. Paying more than the average (currently £5.29) will also get you Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Vegas 2, Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Conviction Deluxe Edition, and Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell.

If you're feeling like you want absolutely everything, spending £6.53 will add Clancy's Ghost Recon: Future Soldier and Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Blacklist, with more titles to be announced in the near future. There is of course a final tier - £49 for all the games previously mentioned, a Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege pre-order, a Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege t-shirt, and a coupon for 66% off up to any three Ubisoft titles in the Humble Store (although it excludes pre-orders).

One final note - all games need to be redeemed and played through uPlay. I'll let you decide if that's a bad or not-so-bad thing. Thanks to FantasyDeals @ HUKD!

Splinter Cell: Blacklist Ultimatum Edition is back down to £7 on Xbox 360

After all the terrible advertising, it turned out that Blacklist was actually a really good game with an open-ended approach to things that allowed us players to play pretty much however we wanted, whenever we wanted. Pure stealth? Gunplay? Mix and match? The choice is yours.

You're also able to choose the Ultimatum Edition, which includes a collector's watch, comic, DLC and a collector's box, for just £7.00 on Xbox 360. It's the UK/Nordic version, but the pack and game is in English. Thanks to takle2015 @ HUKD!

Splinter Cell: Blacklist only £3.74 on PC

Splinter Cell: Blacklist is now only £3.74 on PC. It's one of the best games in the series and shouldn't be missed at this price.

Really, you need more convincing? There's an excellent range of gameplay styles to choose from. Trying to be as sneaky as possible is an incredibly intense experience compared to just run-and-gunning it (but you can do that too). The multiplayer is feature packed too with Spies Vs Mercs making a return along with some cool co-op missions. It really is one of the best stealth games in the business.

Thanks to BuzzDuraband.

I'd hurry, stock is listed as low already.

Splinter Cell: Blacklist Review

After all of the furore about possibly dumbing down Splinter Cell and turning one of gaming's classic stealthy franchises into an action romp after THAT E3 showing, it turned out that Blacklist was actually a really good game with a gloriously open-ended approach to things that allowed us players to play pretty much however we wanted, whenever we wanted.

Which is nice.

Anyway, HMV have the Ultimatum Edition for under £15 (knock a further quid off with the code JULY10 - still working at the time of writing) which includes the game along with an a mini graphic novel, a watch, and a bunch of DLC maps. You can grab the X360 version for the same price here.

UK Games Charts | 14th September 2013

This week's charts are sitting in the doldrums, the calm before the storm. Something big is coming tomorrow, but in the meantime, the same old faces continue to jostle for attention, with no less than six games retaining the same chart position as last week. Saints Row IV still sits pretty at the very top, enjoying the last few hours of being the only crime sandbox title on gaming campus.

That said, Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix has charged into the charts full-tilt, making an impressive second place debut above Diablo III's console port. LEGO Batman 2 and The Lord Of The Rings have also leaped back into the top ten, shunting out the likes of Rayman Legends and Killzone Mercenary.

Splinter Cell: Blacklist Review | Sneak? Stab? Shoot? Win.

Platforms: PS3 | Xbox 360 (reviewed) | Wii U | PC

Developer: Ubisoft Toronto

Publisher: Ubisoft

When the best stealth experiences this generation have come from first person games -take a bow Far Cry 3's machete and Dishonored- you have to wonder if grizzled vet Sam Fisher and Splinter Cell can still compete. Like any stealth master though, you don't even notice how good he is until you've been completely drawn in.

The so-so wrapping of this long-awaited return belies the high quality within though. Fans of TV’s 24/anything with terrorists will be able to spot the plot a mile off. A rogue ex-military group attempt to start World War III by threatening terrorist attacks on America if they don't pull all their troops from foreign countries. A few familiar faces from Sam's past turn up, but newbies can play the game without feeling they're missing important facts. Blacklist is a great standalone entry point to the series.

To be fair, on past form I wasn't expecting much story-wise. But the mission selection and briefing screens are miserably generic -lots of grids and grainy footage and global tabletop maps. I'm not sure why Battlefield, Call of Duty and Splinter Cell all want to set up missions the same way, but it's really boring the cock off me.

Splinter Cell: Blacklist Review | Sneak? Stab? Shoot? Win.

Thankfully, the game seriously pulls its socks up in most other departments. And yes, mission objectives still appear projected on the side of buildings in a fantastic stylish flourish continuing from the previous game.

UK Games Charts | 24th August 2013

Hail to the chief: Saints Row IV has made its début in an assured first place, ably assisted by chief of staff Sam Fisher, whose game clocked in second. UKIE confirms that the "super-powered sandbox" is 2013's fourth highest-selling new release behind Tomb Raider, BioShock Infinite and The Last of Us - yet failed to match the prequel's sales. Hopefully the new console generation will help shake things up a bit.

Disney Infinity rounds out an all-new top three, which will need to make serious bank to recoup massive development costs. The Bureau: XCOM Declassified sneaked into tenth place below the predictable familiar faces. We've got the details below...

... wait. Where's The Wonderful 101? Erm... oh. 22nd.

Splinter Cell: Blacklist - Spies vs Mercs Video Rings The Changes

Ubisoft has posted nearly nine minutes of narrated footage to explain how the new Spies vs Mercs multiplayer mode works in Splinter Cell: Blacklist. Oh, and I do mean "new Spies vs Mercs," because this latest video shows off the Blacklist-exclusive 2013 gametype that features more players and extra gadgets compared to the classic version. Which is also playable if you're a purist.

It's the perfect accompaniment to our Spies vs Mercs hands-on preview, and extensive Splinter-Cell Blacklist hands-on. Game's out next month on PC, PS3, Xbox 360 and Wii U.
