I rented this game from Blockbuster and kept it a few days longer because I didn't want to take it back. Now I have ordered it from Amazon. This is one of those games where you use your brain more than just running around shooting up everything that moves (for that I hear you should buy RESISTANCE). In Splinter Cell-Double Agent, you'll pick locks, use spy cams, steal terrorist information, etc., You start off as a NSA Agent but then while the story goes along, you can choose rather to keep spying for the NSA or betray them for another agency (can't remember the name of it). I thought this added alot to gameplay because it reminded me of those CHOOSE YOUR OWN ADVENTURE series books from when I was a teenager.Read more ›
The "breaking out of jail" portion in the early stages of the game is really amazing fun, and it just keeps getting better from there. I had no trouble whatsoever with framerates or loading speeds (my PS3 has yet to show any signs of strain or error or anything close to a glitch after one year of blissful use).
I am trying to be objective and think of some flaw in this game but I really can't, hence the 5 star perfect rating. I look forward to trying another Tom Clancy game after this one.
I would definitely recommend this game to anyone who's into espionage style adventure games.
The graphics are much improved, pretty much what you would expect from the PS3.
Many new added game play features, most notably the double agent feature where you actually carry out objectives that affect your future missions.
For example, after you plant a bomb on the ship, you can either:
1. Let the bomb go off and not risk blowing your cover,
2. Stop the bomb and have a solid standing with the NSA
But risk blowing your cover.
3. Frame someone else for stopping the bomb and remain in good standing with both organizations.
Of course, the person who gets framed will no longer be there to help you. It's this kind of game play that truly breaks new ground and doesn't make this feel like an expansion to the Ps2/Xbox versions.
Also, new gadgets and features don't hurt this game at all. Interrogation, Fingerprint scanners, Laser microphones which are used to get past voice activated locks. If you liked previous versions of SC, chances are, you're going to love this one. The extra features are icing on the cake.
Now for the bad.
Although the graphics are great, there are plenty of times where the frame rate suffers slightly. It won't get to the point where it's totally unplayable, but even in a building where there aren't any huge explosions going on, it can get a little (just a little) jerky.
Secondly, This game is a lot more difficult than the first installment of SC. I have replayed SC many times over but in this version, you really -really- cannot afford to get spotted.
In some missions, getting spotted immediately ends the mission, you character freezes and there is no opportunity to escape. The "Alert" system is nothing like Metal Gear Solid's.Read more ›
You will die or get lost a lot so be prepared and patient with the game compared with the newer entries. but over all you will enjoy the game thoroughly but maybe not enough to play again with another decisions

Honestly, Splinter cell blacklists was first game in this series and playing double agent was like taking a step back when it comes to the game's platform. Read morePublished 7 months ago by Amazon Customer

This game was the first Splinter Cell game that was really made for the PS3. With that said, if you've played any other shooter type games this one will be very hard to adapt to. Read morePublished 22 months ago by Mike Wayne
