  1. On par with the 360 version of the same name. This will tingle your heart strings just as much as your fingers. [Dec 2006, p.36]
  2. The nuts and bolts of the game remain exactly the same, but the branching storyline adds a whole new layer of depth. Splinter Cell fans will love this without being hugely surprised by it. [Dec 2006, p.84]
  3. I found the story more fleshed out since certain story elements that are glossed over in the X360 version are given more gravity and importance.
  4. Galvanized by the well-implemented trust management system, Splinter Cell: Double Agent proves to be another great game in this venerable series. Alas, the graphical limitations of the Gamecube keep this version from the success of its peers.
  5. If the only console you own is a Gamecube – steer clear of Splinter Cell: Double Agent. But if you happen to own a PS2 or Xbox – pick up one of those versions and you will have an awesome holiday.
  6. 50
    Honestly, it's an okay game at heart, but it's hard to see that if you've even caught a glimpse of the other versions.
  7. I'm looking forward to the great stuff Ubi has on the horizon, but looking past Double Agent. [Dec. 2006, p.114]
