  • Splinter cell fans
    For every splinter cell series fan, this game will not let you down, it will lift up your adrenaline rush as it really puts your skills to the test... For any new people to this game, this series is a stealth paced game, so don't expect big explosions or chases, it's a game design for people who like spy/action games... A.I. is very strategical if playing in hard mode... this is really the best splinter cell out... If you do not know much from this franchise I suggest renting first, though I assure you, you will like this one!!!! Quality people, quality!!!...more info
  • Splinter Cell: D&A, great game but Sam's getting rusty.
    Oddly enough for a Splinter Cell game, the control interface felt very clunky and awkward. Sam was nowhere near as fluid in DA as he has been in past titles. I couldn't even pull off some of the signature stealth moves like hallway splits. This series entry went more for "Hitman" style action. Which was still great, just different than expected and hoped for. Also the camera angle seemed uncomfortably close-in, making planning difficult for me personally.

    Game difficulty was a bit uneven. Even on easy mode, there is an unforgiving learning curve and unbalanced enemy AI with amazing detection abilities. Despite many controller throwing impulses, the final levels are very rewarding but with a few "WTF?" moments on plot development, which I won't spoil. Let's just say that I blew up a lot of stuff and stabbed more than my share of terrorists. Definitely worth at least your weekend rental!

  • Bought because box said it supported 1-3 players
    If you look at the back of all xbox games, they tell you how many people can play the game. Players is always first, and indicates how many people can play on a single console. Then some games have number of players for system link, online, coop, etc.

    This game said players "1-3." However, after spending 20 minutes trying to figure out how to have two or three people play on the same console, I about went crazy. I went online, and found it to be a misprint or misinterpretation, or something by the creators.

    This is inexcusable! The ONLY reason I bought the game was for multiplayer on the same console, which the Xbox360 serious lacks. And this one was a fraud. So it doesn't matter to me how good the single player is, or how good the graphics are, etc. UBISOFT LIED on the box, and now I am stuck with a game that doesn't do what was advertised. I will be extremely wary of all UBISOFT Xbox360 games in the future. I just hope my review helps anybody else avoid this game who would buy it for the single console multiplayer....more info
  • Easily the weakest Splinter Cell game to date
    First of all, half of the reviews on here have to be plants. In reading their descriptions, they had a completely different gaming experience than me. The Splinter Cell franchise is probably my favorite ongoing series, and this game was one of the reasons I bought an XBOX 360 (especially since I've seen predominantly stellar reviews). So I'll differ from the rest and say that, while this game dresses like a SC game, it's more adequately characterized by moderate attempts at renovation which fail from lack of execution.

    Let's start with the positives. Obviously, the graphics are UN-BE-EFFING-LIEVABLE throughout most of the game. This is no surprise, though, given the amazing graphics we've come to expect from this series. There are blatant environmental upgrades in Double Agent, regardless of whether or not you're descending along the face of a skyscraper, prowling across rooftops...whatever, that just beg for you to stop and enjoy the scenery for a moment or two. Also, the in-game save feature is a must for all of the Splinter Cell games because we all know that things can get messy in a hurry and the less you have to repace your footsteps the better. Finally, Michael Ironside returns as the voice of Sam Fisher, with a dark, gruff command we know and love.

    Which brings me to my first gripe. The storyline here reduces Sam Fisher to a cross between Jack Bauer of "24" and Locke from "Lost," rather than a stone-cold, military hardass who could wipe both of them out without so much as blinking. With regard to story, this is not a Splinter Cell Game--it's an extended episode of "24" that plays out over the course of a few weeks or so. With Sam's daughter being killed at the beginning, I expected Sam Fisher's badassery to augment, not subside, as he's given a love interest and is thrust into a new setting with an underground terrorist group decorated with colorful characters who are also cardboard cutouts of television shows a 'la "24". Give me a break. These games have always been more or less "park your brain at the door" but at least they used to be grounded in the real world. This game is television.

    Gripe #2: The controls. Horrendous. Expect to sneak up behind an opposition with the intention of quickly and stealthly knocking them out, only to have the controls become unresponsive because the game is seemingly EXPECTING you to grab them. Or, vice-versa, you will find yourself expecting to grab an opposition, only to have them repeatedly take one step out of your grasp forcing you to frequently bump into them and...well, we all know what happens next. More often than not, though, Sam will merely sneak up behind an opposition and just sit there doing absolutely nothing while you smash buttons hoping the guard in front of you doesn't decide to turn around. All in all, I'd say something similar to this happens about 25% of the time I'm in such a position, which is huge when you estimate that 1 in 4 guards will eventually get to turn around a blast you away just because the buttons were nonresponsive. Really frustrating.

    Also, Sam's little ability to step off of a ledge then turn around and grab onto it? You never know when that's going to work here. Based on my experiences from previous SC games, I found myself constantly walking off ledges to wait for an opposition to step close to my stealthy reach, only to find myself committing suicide in mid-mission. Furthermore, sometimes when you are hanging from a ledge, Sam will just let go and plummet to his death without you so much as pressing a button. I thought, for a second "oh wow...Sam must get tired in this one...that's a little more realistic". Nope, it's just bad programming. On one other instance, I left him hanging in the same place for about 20 minutes while I ate dinner and nothing happened.

    Finally, the gameplay is just flat-out ridiculous and tedious most of the time. Laughably so, even. Objectives are vague and leave you, primarily in your JBA headquarters, left to wander around aimlessly until you finally put two and two together to figure out what the objectives are actually trying to indicate. In one instance, you're even given about 25 minutes to complete a major objective, only to find out that you're not actually supposed to complete the "major objective". You're supposed to finish the other objectives then let the 10 minutes you have left simply run out so that you see a "cinematic" where Sam completes said objective. How the heck you're supposed to figure that out is completely beyond me.

    Anyway, the game has its moments where its the Splinter Cell you love, but for the most part...I'll keep waiting for a next-generation SC title that's worth the pricetag....more info
  • Chaos Theory for Better Online...
    im a huge fan of online gaming..as games like This tend to be Useless once youv beaten everything. but i can say that Chaos Theory is a better game in both Single Player AND Online than Double Agent. in the Online mp mode for CT, you have WAYYY more options as a Mercenarie and as a spy. it doesnt make sense to me why as a Spy, you wouldnt atleast have a Taser gun...or other weapons that you can Stun a mercenarie with like you do in Chaos Theory. and why wouldnt you transfer over some of the other options for a merc? like the cam viewing option? or the ability to place Mines? or cameras that lock off objectives and add a whole new element to the online game? the inclusion of these things in Chaos Theory...and the Lack Of them in Double Agent...as well as Better and more Logical MAPS in CT..is what makes Chaos Theory a better choice to me. any fan of the series should atleast Try this one out though..the online is good Fun for a few..but Chaos Theory is much better.

  • tough stealth game
    this game requires a lot of stealth so for shooting/killing action it is pretty slow. i do like the strategy element of figuring out how to use the shadows and the technical equipment to avoid and distract the enemy. this is not a fast play game but if you have time you will enjoy choking out a lot of bad dudes. enjoy...more info

    I own Splinter Cell: Double Agent for my 360 and I love it. The voice acting is awesome,the music was really well made to fit the game, and the action is great. It's one of my favirote games for the 360 and I also think it's one of the best games out there. The best Splinter Cell game so far....more info
  • Same game, but not really
    God, I love Ubisoft ... how do they keep doing it?

    I think what I love most about this version of the game for Xbox 360 is that while you're in the same locations as the Xbox v1.0 version, the game play is completely different ... it's as though Ubisoft created two different games.

    Can't quite give it 5 stars, though, because some of the game play is a pain (like building the bombs in the second visit to the JBA's headquarters ... much more difficult than it had to be) and the story is OK at best.

    Still, this latest chapter in the Splinter Cell franchise is a welcome addition.

    Can't wait for the next chapter, Conviction....more info
