PC Double Agent does double-demo duty

Single-player and multiplayer tryouts for Ubisoft's latest Splinter Cell game now available from GameSpot.

Way back in August, PC gamers were tantalized with the announcement that Splinter Cell Double Agent demos were coming to their platform of choice. Unfortunately, time passed and, like the game's stealthy protagonist, they were nowhere to be seen.

Today, Ubisoft finally released the two demos, just days after the game hit store shelves. Both a multiplayer and single-player demo for Double Agent are now available from GameSpot downloads.

The multiplayer trial weighs in at 808.1MB and features only the Motorway 90 map. The demo is limited to one skin per team, one gadget, no bonuses or co-op challenges, and no live news. The 871MB single-player demo features a portion of the Okhotsk level.

Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Double Agent is rated M for Mature and retails for $49.99. For more information, read GameSpot's previous coverage.

I spent two hours downloading this demo. It crashed about 3 times on my PC. Finally it didn't even work. Take my advice .Don't download this demo. you will regret you did.

Now If only they could complete the review of the PC version so we can know if it's like the 360 version, the ps2 and Xbox version, or something in the middle(best of both worlds :P).

Why don't you just hold off and get a DX10 card, seems pretty pointless to get a brand new DX9 right before the transition begins...

@ UbAdm Why don't you go with the Radeon X1950 instead? It's more bang for the buck.

princegee4: it is not uncommon for demos to be released after the full game hits retail............... the demo in this situation is for people who r unsure about buying the game, so they download the demo and play it and then decide if they like the game or not (of course, said people need to have a great bandwidth or great patience if they want to download the big demos thatr released these days)

"Who actually plays SPlintercell on the PC" A hell of a lot of people. I know a lot of people who have only played it on the PC, me included. I've tried it on Xbox, and it's not bad, but my first experience with Splinter Cell was on the PC, so that's what feels right to me.

I'm waiting until i get my 7950GT ^____^ Then i'll pass the rest of the specs i hope, i've got a 4.2Ghz P4 and 2gig RAM. It's just my ATi Raedon X600 that lets me down, but by next week i'll have an Nvidia GeForce 7950GT

I actually play Splinter Cell on PC and have played all 3 previous games. The demos not crap and I dont know why some of you are getting so called huge performance issues with the single player demo but it runs fine for me on my AMD64 AGP system with NVIDIA!!! 6800GS, i didn't mess with the settings, just played on the settings i started the demo with on 1024x768.

Splinter Cell is best on PC actually. The controls are perfect. I played all three on the PC. SnuffDaddy you can only play the single player demo if your graphics card supports Shader Model 3.0.

I can run Quake 4, F.E.A.R and C.O.D 2 at full detail @ 1024x768 on my PC, so will I be able to run this game well? On those 3 games I get a solid 60FPS, ie fluid framerates. I might just wait for the 360 demo because that's where I'll be playing this anyway.

Huzzah. Now I get to try some of it out to see if I would get it for the PC or just play it on my friend's 360.

Heh, 'bout time! I waited for this Demo for almost 2 months. Now it's finally out, too bad I already bought the game. Oh well, hopefully this will sway people to buy this awesome game.

Don't bother downloading the SP demo, it is unplayable, I cant speak for all machines, but my Nvidia PC that plays everything at maximum settings, is unable to run it, something to do with the SM 2.0, btw I havn't tried out the MP demo so that may be O.K., just is just a heads up. check out the Splinter Cell forum, more info there.
