Veteran agent Sam Fisher is back. But he's never faced an enemy like this before. To stop a devastating terrorist attack, he must infiltrate a vicious terrorist group and destroy it from within. For the first time ever, experience the relentless tension and gut-wrenching dilemmas of life as a double agent. As you infiltrate a terrorist organization in its American headquarters, you must carefully weigh the consequences of your actions. Kill too many criminals and you'll blow your cover. Hesitate too long and millions will die. Do whatever it takes to complete your mission, but get out alive.
This game has a good singleplayer. I'm a big fan of the singleplayer game so that's a good thing with me. The story is interesting and the levels are very well done. Some of the things that happen during the levels are just plain cool and you are wowed the first time you see them. The multiplayer in this is not very good in my opinion. I would prefer some different types of modes, but maybe next time. Rent it if you like a great singleplayer, and you might like the multiplayer. I'm picky.
If you played any of the other splinter cell games, congratulations, you've played most of Double Agent. There are a few shakeups in the formula, mostly dealing with optional and "choice" objectives, but these don't do much to change what's pretty much the same gameplay as the last three times. There are a few missions where you're forced to work without spy gear, and these are probably the best of the game. At least this one is in HD, so it looks better than Chaos Theory.
Some love the sleuthing about in the shadows, & the non-linear "you choose the way to do things" campaign. I personally didn't enjoy it, not my cup of tea (I'm more of a run & gun type, & I like to know what I'm supposed to do next). Multiplayer is also somewhat divided, I personally loved it, but others have absolutely hated it. It consists of a game of "spies vs mercs" where spies have to sneak into a base and steal a file, and the mercs guard them. Very tactical. 7/10
