Splinter Cell Double Agent Online Demo available - doesn't work

I became extremely excited this morning when I saw Allison boot up the Xbox 360. Usually, this means there is some sort of new game demo or content. This was indeed the case as I saw her select 'Splinter Cell Double Agent' demo. Oh boy, oh boy.


After Allison realized that the 705 MB download was the online demo (as opposed to single player) she handed me the controller. I eagerly started the demo, inverted the vertical aim, and chose, "Quick Match".

"Joining a session, please wait..." I could barely contain myself. I knew I was mere seconds away from being either a spy or a merc and getting my first time in on SCDA. "Joining a session, please wait...". Hmm? It's been at least two minutes, I thought. I'll wait a little longer. Five minutes passed, so I decided to exit out and retry, which required me to reload the demo.

Back to the start screen, I once again chose, "Quick Match." I donned my headset, eagerly anticipating a voice from the deep matrix that is Xbox Live. I began practicing my pseudo-military jargon, "roger that 21, I'll take the right hallway...keep an eye out for laser mines...meet up at checkpoint bravo".

"Joining a session, please wait...". Crap. Same thing. I waited fifteen minutes. I backed out, and decided to try a custom match, thinking that would somehow be different.

"Joining a session, please wait...". Super crap. I tried variations on this theme three more times and am once again staring at the same screen with the same message.

I'm a big fan of Ubisoft and of Splinter Cell games, but serio, if you can't get your act together, don't release the demo.

PS - Keep an eye out for our Splinter Cell Double Agent Walkthrough which is due to start this week!
