I love the Splinter Cell games; I have bought every single one and thoroughly enjoyed the stealth aspect, which has smart AI and is a very genuine challenge. Each game has seemingly managed to hone the little errors that the previous game had, and Double Agent is no exception. Like the other games, Double Agent rewards stealth and strategic planning, and will chide you if you think you can be Rambo and just run through with all guns blazing.
You play series regular Sam Fisher, an NSA Agent, and you are soon enough given a choice: to continue spying for the NSA, or become a traitor and work for another agency. Indeed, this is quite a non-linear game, and isn't just limited to this simple choice, for you can still play missions with the other side whatever your allegiance. This adds a lot of replayability to a series that otherwise isn't so challenging once you've figured out how to circumvent the traps once.
That said, first time through, the game is quite a challenge, but a welcome one. You will fail and you will get caught, but it's never frustrating enough that it makes you want to stop playing; it is very addictive, and it's an incredibly rewarding feeling when you've managed to slip past an armed convoy undetected. From the opening section of the game, where you break out of prison, to the later set-pieces, this is just a very entertaining game that is a lot more cinematic than the previous games.
The game has excellent graphics and as is characteristic for the series, great voice work, again from the great actor Michael Ironside. For fans of the series, this takes things in a new, brilliant direction, and is well worth picking up, especially as it's so cheap now!
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.
