Ubisoft's powerhouse Tom Clancy series of games has amped up the first person shooter genre with their realistic, intense storylines and great gameplay options for both single and multiple players. With the release of Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Double Agent gamers get to go deep undercover to take on dual roles--one of covert operative and the other as a ruthless terrorist. Gamers walk a fine line and must decide whom to trust and whom to betray, and the choices made throughout the game affect the storyline, gameplay and result in very different endings.

Returning as Sam Fisher, gamers must infiltrate a terrorist cell and destroy it without blowing cover by doing whatever it takes to gain their trust. The missions and objectives Sam takes on has him traveling to locations and cities worldwide like New York, Los Angeles, Cozumel and Shangai, and challenges come in the form of often working under extreme conditions like sandstorms, thick dust and smoke, and even underwater in arctic weather.

There is a real sense of underlying tension throughout the game because Sam faces some extremely tough moral decisions and the results of Sam's decisions affect the storyline and how it plays out. Using tried and true tactics like stealth action and context sensitive moves are key, as is Sam's arsenal of weapons and skills. Rash decisions could blow Sam's cover and possibly destroy millions of lives, so a cool head and nerves of steel are what it takes for Sam to succeed. Fans of multiplayer get many options for both offline and online play, and can choose traditional head-to-head type games, or go co-op to team up with friends to take on challengers. Overall, Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Double Agent is a great addition to the series and should give gamers hours of quality game time.
