Arrow Splinter Cell Double Agent (PC)

Pretty nice, graphics are kickass, performance is real nice too, could play it on max with little slowdown on my old athlon 2800 with a 6800GT. Here are some screenshots i took right when i started, more to come.

the game starts up with the "Powered by Unreal" logo so i think you're right about that.

As the sys requirements are the same as 'Rainbox6 Las Vegas' - ie - it only supports SM3.0 shaders, I did wonder if maybe it now used U3 engine...but I'm sure this would have been mentioned.

Though UBI don't seem to be pushing this fact with R6 LV.

Maybe you could check the INI file.

Some more screens please.

Most importantly (or at least important to me anyway) is the co-op the crappy mp with bots style like the 360 version, or the way cool Chaos Theory style ala the regular x-box version?

(i have opteron 148 2.8GHZ,2gb, oced 7900gt 256mb).

Looks great but I'm torn on which version to buy (pc or 360). I'm waiting on a pc demo to evaluate the performance. I've been playing too many pc games these days that kinda perform like trash and its a little annoying. Double Agent looks no better than Chaos Theory (which looked fantastic and ran great).


Since this is a SM3 only game I await to see how this affects pc sales as not a ton of pc gamers have a card capable of that.

Does this one install starforce like Chaos Theory did? Just curious, if it did I might not get it....

It looks awesome though, I have been waiting for a while now for it..
