Conclusion: The Splinter Cell games are the best series on the xbox period. I actually want to go back and play through them more than twice. Splinter Cell took everything I liked from the Metal Gear Solid series and took away all of the lame Anime feel, making one of the most authentic and realistic games I've ever played. I must say Fixxxer's review hit the nail on the head; this is a great game for any Splinter Cell fan!

Conclusion: The game looks amazing, (But which Splinter Cell doesnt?) Aside from a few hiccups in the frame rate which seems to be a problem not only for me, but also amongst people I have spoke with about the game it plays good. The controls are among the best I have seen in a Splinter Cell game to date. The camera could use some work especially when rounding corners (It got stuck above me sometimes and glitched like crazy!
Summary: This often overlooked gem offers a lot more than the inferior 360 version.The levels are akin to the original formula,instead of the 360 versions deviation, that was frankly dumbed down and stripped of a large amount of depth/complexity,all in favour of the failed "catering to a wider (dumber) audience." To summarize this game plays and is just as good if not better in some respects as Choas Theory. It satisfies my pure stealth cravings,and deserves much more acclaim.
Summary: I have previously played the xbox 360 version of this game, and was not particularly impressed with the story or level design. There was some pretty good action scenes, but it left me cold. Recently i decided to trade it in and get the original xbox version. God, i wish i'd done it before! It is 10X BETTER than the 360 version! Much improved story telling, level design and atmosphere. Forget the 360 version if u are thinking of buying that.
this game has different content to the 360 version

Summary: If you played the 360 version but did not like the changes they made, get this one instead as the content is entirely different the annyoing JBA and daytime missions are not in here, instead is more of the nighttime stuff that was in Chaos Theory The story is also better told; and it works on the 360, so I'd say this was the better version [although the graphics aren't as good, obviously] --plus, you get 12 co-op missions which you can play split screen which aren't on...
Summary: Double Agent delivers everything we've come to expect from the Splinter Cell series, and more. Both graphics and sound are brilliant - the best yet. Gameplay is awesome and the control system is a master class in simplicity. The one thing that seriously lets the game down though is the fact that it's ridiculously short. On normal mode I completed it pretty much over a weekend. Like the stunning Black earlier this year, I think longevity has been sacrificed for looks.
Excerpt: Il mio primo Splinter Cell, e devo dire che nel complesso mi ha fatto una buona impressione. Nei panni del noto agente, vi ritroverete a scegliere da che parte stare: terroristi o organizzazione anti-terroristica? Infatti vi infiltretere in questo grupp ...
Pros: Una punta di gioco di ruolo che non guasta mai
