    Doing a bit of research dug up that this is based on a board game that features a strategy twist. You can either play as a thief or as a detective trying to bring him down. The game features multiplayer with chat features to coordinate and plan against the other side.

    oh yeah, i played the board game when i was a kid

    it could translate pretty well into a ds-game..

    features 5 city maps instead of one, has 2 single player campaigns and multi- as well as single card play.

    Actually I'd say MI5 and MI6 are more like CIA/NSA than FBI, although the FBI does also have a part to play in counter terrorism within the USA. MI5 and MI6 are part of the intelligence services, and not really about criminal investigations. I don't think we have an FBI equivalent in the UK because most of the FBI remit falls within the remit of the British Police Force.
