Review | The Blacklist: Conspiracy

IMG_4115

By Jimmy Bernstein

The Blacklist: Conspiracy is a mobile game adaptation of the hit TV show that fans should really avoid.

This narrative driven puzzle game has players take on the role of an FBI agent who must work with Raymond “Red” Reddington to stop terrorists and other criminal groups. As the story progresses, players must choose to either build their trust with Red or Director Harold Cooper.

Such a premise would be interesting but the tone of the game has been mostly defined by the up-beat music and the slot machine sound effects. Not something that works in an espionage themed game.

It feels like The Blacklist: Conspiracy was influenced by games like LA Noire but instead it plays like a dumb down version of Finding Waldo. Basically you find stuff and have it analyzed then case is solved.

Such a set up would sound easy but this being a mobile game, its boggled down by a ton of freemuim gimmicks. Any real progression would require waiting or giving in and pay for some coins or jewel.

Basically one has to be a total moron to actually wanna pay for the gimmicks. This is one game every gamer or fan should avoid.

The Blacklist: Conspiracy is basically another sad cash grab that probably cost more then it will make while insulting fans of the hit TV show.

Final Score: 1/10

  1. Who cares about some lame freemuim game, this bad review is just free advertising for them and the lame ass show. Seriously Blacklist is just a 24 and Homeland knock-off.

  2. Agreed with Joe, fuck this game.

  3. I thought this was a gaming site?

  4. I hope the clowns who made this dont call themselves gamers!

    Blacklist is the number one show I look forward to each week, but this game just sucks.

    Standard hidden object game, with no outstanding features; and is pretty stingy with the stars you need to perform tasks. Combined with its inability to maintain an Internet connection, and you’re just wasting your time.
