how do!

i got the 360 version and love it to pieces, but i miss the Co-op levels that you had in Chaos Theory and (apparently) get in Double Agent

i also think i'm missing out on the Enrica/Sam love story as well as some cool gameplay mechanics and alternate levels

also, is it compatible with the 360 as my XBox is about one "Cannot read CD" message from being thrown in the bin

is it worth getting?<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Well since you mat be buying this game for the coop. I'll tell you this. The coop gameplay is the same as CT. But the missions are short. Each missions isn't as long as CT coop. They just broke them into parts.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

The SP game is well worth it if you liked CT. If you didn't like CT then don't bother.

Plays almost the same as CT and the levels are larger. Has some new stuff as well as the old.
Nice shiny new story line and lots of SP co-op moves with the AI.

I like it and I switched from the 360 POS, Just my opinion.

Also most the co-op missions are just a tiny bit smaller than the CT ones and over all the co-op campaign is bigger than the CT one and a bit more of a challenge in that it actually requires a lot more team work.

to sum up, this is a very good game and as I said, if you liked CT then you should like this, as it's very close in quality and equal in gameplay style.

Not 360 BC, sadly.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

It's almost worth it for the much better prison level alone. After playing it on the old Xbox, you'll laugh at the 360's prison mission.

The cutscenes are more in depth and give you a much better idea as to what's going on in the plot.

The levels are noticeably longer. For starters, I know both Iceland versions top to bottom. I can beat the Iceland on the 360 in about 7 minutes, but the Xbox takes a minimum of 20 (barring a speed run).

Gameplay is much more parallel to Chaos Theory's.

No mine building or rubik's cube email decrypting games in the JBA. It's good old fashioned Splinter Cell.

Money Train.

Oh and plenty of coop levels http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Sadly though, it's not BC yet. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/compsmash.gif<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

do you still get the corner moves on the xbox version, like on the 36 one, the move where you hit the guys in the neck and pull him in to the corner? and the one where you throw him to the ground and get him in a head lock?

No, those moves aren't in the current gen, neither is back to wall shooting. The gameplay / moves are pretty much identical to CT (except the hacking ... it's different and cooler than the number locking from CT's hacking)<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

No real daylight missions like Cozumel

Sound/Light Meter

Actual health bar / med kits

EEV

Quick / Regular saves

No checkpoints (although a thing pops up at certain spots in levels allowing you to simply hit A to quicksave if you wish, it doesn't interrupt the gameplay which is nice)

No nonchalant walking around JBA and playing minigames, and fewer missions there

Lesser graphics

More in depth story / cutscenes

No directed moments (control skydive, helicopter, etc.)

No Shanghai (Emile is at Iceland to get the Red Mercury which turns out was stolen before he could buy it, instead of getting it in Shanghai)

Truer feel to the first 3 SC's

Story based Co-op that parallels the singleplayer story

An actual prison breakout feel in a prison mission more in line with what was advertised during the game's development

To name a few http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

I doubt its gonna become BC I highly, highly, highly, doubt it. After all, they made 2 different versions.

Like for example, look at GRAW. that never became BC and had 2 different versions just like DA.

Then look at hitman:Blood money that never became BC. And it had 2 different versions like DA. (they were almost identical tho, exept for better graphics)<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Lambert: Good work fisher, 4 get just 4 more forged e-mails uploaded.

Sam: Thanks, ive always found it hard to count past 3.

Lambert: no need to be smarmsy sam.

i would never say never

Hitman never became BC cos as you say the two versions were identical.

whereas the XBox version of DA is vastly different to the 360 version

they gotta cater for those harcore Splinter Cell/XBox fans who no longer have a working XBox<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Hi guys,
i too am a bit dissappointed with double agent. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/compsmash.gif I was expecting mercs, same server for 360 and xbox and better maps(like the maps from ct).
But, its splinter cell so who cares im just getting on with the game.

p.s i have got to level six! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif
