    The single player in the 360 version of this game is very lackluster. Having played and beaten both I'm not sure what happened when they brought this to the 360, plot holes and at somes points full levels/missions are nowhere to be found. The upside to this game is its multiplayer, Spy vs Merc is different to the majority of shooter multiplayer games with only one team having a gun, but learning to use the spy and being able to get so close to a merc that you can snap there neck without them even noticing you there is something you have to experience. Im giving this a 6/10 for singleplayer and a 10/10 for multiplayer. Expand

  1. Rupturing quality and oozing tension, this is stealth gaming of the highest calibre, full of imagination and augmented by an excellent two-way Trust system that leaves you pondering every choice you make and then having to deal with the consequences. [Nov 2006, p.8]
  2. Just think of Double Agent as the least amazing Splinter Cell yet, rather than the worst game in the series - because it's simply not. It's the gutsiest, and the chances it takes (but doesn't quite nail) give the series room to evolve into something better than could've possibly imagined to iterations ago. [Dec 2006, p.70]

    All sorts of improvements have been made to level design, AI, gameplay mechanics (which are simplified yet still require skill), and a meaningful storyline punctuated with directed moments. While some may argue the point, the new Mercs Vs. Spies mode is good fun and should prove to have legs on Xbox Live.
