    Anybody getting this? I've had it preordered for a while and should have it sometime this week for the 360. I got the multiplayer demo off of the Live Marketplace. I tried it a few times on system link by myself to get a feel for the levels... the AI was iffy but worked I suppose. Hunting AI is kind of hard I guess. Playing online was excellent though. I'm very glad they've mellowed out the spies. Finally the spies can work on doing spying instead of being ninja assassins. I found the mercenary experience more enjoyable being able to focus on my mission instead of having to constantly watch my back.

    Of course the multiplayer and the single player are completely different beasts but I'm sure they haven't botched up the single player at all.

    I guess we'll see soon!

    Maybe we should make a "Team MacRumors" of spies/mercs. :)

    It does look good. And has the voice of Michael Ironside aka Richter from Total Recall. That's my favourite role as he dies by getting his arms chopped off and falling a few hundred feet. Verhoeven is a genius!

    I'll probably be getting Double Agent for the Wii. I've fallen in love with the series and I'm eager to see what Ubi has done with this game. It looks like it's gonna be a ton of fun.

    However, I'll probably wait until Christmas before I get this game, as the only game I'll be playing for a while will be LoZ:Twilight Princess.

    EDIT: I remember Ironside mostly from his role in Top Gun.

    You took the words right out of my mouth, all of them! I'm getting this on the Wii, loved the Xbox versions, but will have to fit this in after Zelda. And 'Jester' in Top Gun is where I always picture Michael Ironside.

    I got my copy today of the deluxe set on the 360.

    I'll give it a go later when I've finished work.

    Hmmm. I just noticed that the game's only $40 on the GC, but will be $50 on the Wii. I might just end up picking up the GC version.

    http://www.dealrush.com/

    scroll down to the bottom and there is an announcement of the Toys R Us buy 2 get 1 deal. I'm definitely in!

    Damn, that is a great site. I wish I had known about it last week when they showed the deal to get Table Tennis for $15. It's not the greatest game, but the price was too good to pass.

    I think I will wait for the Toys'R'Us deal as well. I want both Splinter Cell and Tiger Woods, and now I can get a third game too. Should give me plenty to play in the next months including Gears of War when that comes out.

    It's not as good. It's better. ;)

    Too bad the game isn't in stores until tomorrow. :(

    Ok I absolutely loved Chaos Theory because of the amazing co-op levels. None of the reviews about the game say anything about co-op in Double agent. Did they not put the best part of Chaos Theory into Double Agent?

    In the multiplayer demo of DA, there is an option for co-op. I never played co-op in Chaos Theory, but it sounds like great fun. Wouldn't be cool if you had to whisper in to the headset – too much noise and you alerted guards!

    The co-op in DA is different than CT.
