Splinter Cell Blacklist... if all its characters were posh Englishmen

Hello and welcome to the fifth entry in GamesRadar's 'The Posh British Version' feature. It's where the GamesRadar UK team take well-known scenes from your favourite games and imagine what they'd sound like if all the characters were over-the-top, posh, English aristocrats. Sounds odd--trust us, it just works... incredibly well.

In this latest video, we take the opening scenes from Splinter Cell: Blacklist, and imagine what it'd be like if--instead of saving the world from terrorists--our heroes were trying to win the varsity boat race between Oxford and Cambridge. Will the loss of their best rower, Quentin, spell disaster for the crew? Or have they found a secret weapon that'll guarantee an ungentlemanly victory in the regatta?

To reiterate--this video was made for comedy purposes by the very, very British GamesRadar UK team. It's deliberately over-the-top. Y'know, to make it funny.


Andy has been writing about games since 1999, when he nagged the Editors of his University newspaper so much they let him start a brand-new video games section. After that he worked in print mags for over 10 years before switching to the murky world of online editing, when he became Executive Editor on GamesRadar. Now he uses his ill-gotten power and influence to write endless, beard-stroking think-pieces on Destiny and Game of Thrones. Spoil the latest episode of the show, and he will cut you.


The longest-serving GR+ staffer, I was here when all this was just fields. I'm currently Reviews Editor but still find time to speedrun Sonic levels and make daft Photoshop articles.


Long-time GR+ writer Dave has been gaming with immense dedication ever since he failed dismally at some '80s arcade racer on a childhood day at the seaside (due to being too small to reach the controls without help). These days he's an enigmatic blend of beard-stroking narrative discussion and hard-hitting Psycho Crushers.
