Is the multiplayer in Blacklist anywhere near as good as PT and CT?

Pandora Tomorrow still probably has the best multiplayer I've ever played in a game.

Classic mode is pretty much exactly the same. Blacklist is different but still fun as hell. Extraction is pretty fun too. Though the territories mode I despise.

Hahahahaha no.
Differences:
-Spies don't stay at the hacking station during the hack
-mercs don't have different vision modes
-no motion detectors to trip as a spy
-spies don't choose two grenades, they get all three types

Other differences that permeate the MP:
-no more neck snaps, just instant death knife kills and extremely overpowered death from above kills (also in classic)
-grenades are no longer shot by mercs from grenade launchers but are now thrown
-spies are super agile and way faster than PT whereas mercs are just as slow and now cannot jump.
-spies now have guns and explosive sticky cameras that can one-hit kill a merc.
-mercs now have explosive drones they can send out
-infinite lives
-no more hacking door panels and shooting switches to access areas as spies
-cannot flatten yourself against a wall as a spy
-cannot jump as a spy (press A for everything)
-cannot neck grab and knock out a merc while talking to them

I'm sure there's more but my phone is about to die. Is it fun? Absolutely. Is it anywhere near how amazingly mind-blowing PT was? Absolutely not. I personally thought CT's multiplayer was severely lacking. Turning invisible, heartbeat sensors, one hit kill DFAs, easily forced spawns... Babies stuff. PT was a true test of skill.

This. Classic mode on Blacklist is fun but nowhere near Chaos Theory fun. Plus, you can only play one game type with classic mode settings which is a little disappointing. The dumbed down the gameplay and it's missing a lot of the little things that made PT and CT so unique. Being able to interact with the maps and the terrible spawns are my biggest gripes.
