Veterans of Splinter Cell Chaos Theory may be disappointed with Double Agent's multiplayer. Yet, while some may call this game stripped down, we thought the lack of gadgets streamlined the multiplayer experience and sped up matches online. Robbed of these complications, we found the multiplayer to be frantic and fun. Ubisoft was obviously hoping to expand Splinter Cell's appeal, and we must admit they succeeded in hooking us (and we imagine those unfamiliar with Chaos Theory won't notice the missing bits).
We loved both the single and multiplayer versions of Splinter Cell Double Agent, so we have no issue recommending it to any 360 owner looking for some stealthy action.
