SC: Double Agent had a lot to live up to in my opinion. Having completed and thoroughly enjoyed the 3rd installment in the franchise, Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory, on the original Xbox, I was expecting great things from this game – but it never quite matched those expectations unfortunately. I really liked the morality system the game tried to create because it added to the tension for the Sam Fisher character and the player, but what I liked about Chaos Theory with its more action orientated gameplay and ability to complete missions how you wanted (either all-guns-blazing or stealthy take-downs), with Double Agent the developers went back to the first 2 games and focused just on stealth, which to me, made the game frustrating. Don’t get me wrong, there are lots of players who probably preferred the first 2 games over the 3rd one, but not for me. I found that if you didn’t take into account every little thing, it was game over, which quickly meant I was more likely to get bored and play another game. It’s not a terrible game, I just wish it was better.
The fourth game in Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell series delivers players gameplay that promises to innovate and transform the Splinter Cell franchise. Ubisoft takes the saga of Sam Fisher into entirely new territory, expanding the story and depth of his character.
For the first time in the Splinter Cell series, experience the relentless tension and gut-wrenching dilemmas of life as a double agent with veteran agent Sam Fisher returning in order to stop a devastating attack by infiltrating a vicious terrorist cell and destroying them from within. As you infiltrate the terrorist organisation in its US 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 accomplish your mission, but get out alive.
