The United States has a military presence in two-thirds of the countries around the world. A group of terrorists calling themselves The Engineers have had enough and initiate a terror ultimatum called the Blacklist – a deadly countdown of escalating attacks on U.S. interests. Special operative Sam Fisher is now the leader of the newly formed 4th Echelon: a clandestine unit that answers solely to the President of the United States. Together, Sam and his team must hunt down The Engineers by any means necessary, and stop the Blacklist countdown before it reaches zero.

    I bought the Wii U version, but can't figure out how to mark targets on the gamepad screen like the advertisements showed. I have to mark them manually like the other versions. How do I do this on the gamepad screen? I'm kind of upset about this seeing as I've been google searching for a while and nobody knows.

Have something to say?
