I never even got around to really playing Splinter Cell: Double Agent. Would it still be worth a try? (I'd thought about getting the original Xbox edition instead of the 360 one, if I can find it, since I've heard that the original Xbox edition actually tells a better story, even if it's not as flashy as the 360 version.)
