  1. A finicky port of a great game which is still good, but if you're a Splinter Cell n00b, you're wasting your time. And Sam's. And he's a guy you really don't wanna cross. [Feb 2007, p.66]
  2. Splinter Cell: Double Agent on Wii is definitely workable and even enjoyable, but you've got to work for it and and that may turn a lot of people off.
  3. Not as bad as I feared, not as good as I'd hoped. I find some features, such as camera control, more intuitive than even the 360 version. Other functions don't hold out so well.
  4. It's got exciting stealth gameplay and the controls offer some fun once players get used to them, but the lack of multiplayer, a strong visual appearance and a user-friendly save system make this a weak but enhanced port of the Xbox or PlayStation 2 version.
  5. The graphics are a little disappointing--besides some added lighting effects and better in-game videos, there aren't a lot of improvements over the GCN version. [Jan. 2007, p.97]
  6. A Splinter Cell outing but one that glaringly isn't well suited to the Wii control system. [Mar 2007, p.76]
  7. It’s a bad port with terrible graphics, few modes and controls that will anger many.

    Ignore the reviews - this game is awesome. The controls require some attention and thinking on your part - once you get them down - they really add to the game. Don't be fooled - you WON'T be picking this up and playing like a pro in minutes, you have to learn how to be the double agent. If you're looking for a more mature storyline and gameplay that requires thought...this is it. Expand

    Very under-rated game. The controls take a bit of getting used to but once you get the hang of it, it is fine. Graphics could be better but its still good. A must have game. Expand

    I was expecting the worst when ordering this game for £1.50 and was very pleasantly surprised. The graphics were nothing on the HD games but they were good enogh. The controls were actually decent. When I was looking at the instruction manual, my heart was slowly sinking as I saw nunchuck was to jump and hide behind cover. However, I got used to them through sheer perseverance and got the hang golf them. It was a nice experience, after playing three games with barely any story line to finally have a story to match the gameplay. All I am annoyed about iis the fact that this was ported from last gen consoles because ubisoft couldn't be bothered to make the next gen one for it. Expand

    Enjoyable game, but the worst last battle scene I've ever seen in a game. The last battle made no sense and did not fit the rest of the game.

    Double Agent is the first Splinter Cell game I play since the original one. The first really impress me; it really used the graphic capacities of a console to turn that into gameplay and I believe that Expand

    THE GOOD: Well, it's still a Splinter Cell game. THE BAD: The controls. THE ULGY: The graphics. This is the worst Splinter Cell game I've played and it is one of the few games that I regret buying. Oh god, do I regret spending money on this. The controls are the worst part by far, but the graphics are about as equally bad. I know that the Wii isn't known for graphics, but come on. It being on the Wii is no excuse for ugly graphics.
