  1. With interesting levels that throw many bonuses into the mix and an assortment of fun 007 gadgets to play with, the game is certainly true to the console game it was ported from.
  2. Love the gadgets in this ambitious 3-D FPS, but NightFire's overly treacherous game play could use a few checkpoints. [May 2003, p.137]

    Ultimately, this game’s Achilles’ heel is its unholy union of awkward controls and oatmeal graphics. Still, it’s the best-looking and most in-depth FPS for the GBA.

    A little more attention in character movement and hit detection would have made this Bond a much better product.
  5. 60
    There are better first-person shooters on the GBA, but there's mystique here, and that will count for something among fans.
  6. Flawed from the get go, this technically crippled game tries to incorporate many play styles and succeeds at mastering none. [Summer 2003, p.42]

    007: Nightfire, the third best GBA FPS, and the 10th released. 007: Nightfire definitely delivers from start to finish. We get an in-depth story with neat cut-scenes, wall-to-wall action, and an amazing graphic system. The graphics may look a little grainy but it is one of the most advanced developed for the GBA and pretty impressive. Nightfire also delivers by giving us a nice variety of weapons and Q-Lab gadgets. We get our usual assortment of pistols and machine guns (the bullet shells release from the guns side when you fire!) and our gadgets include a cell-phone grapple (used for reaching high places), a laser watch, a PDA (used to hack), a tranquilizer dart pen, and a little CD hidden in a credit card to monitor computer sysems. So far, so good. The 9 levels the game features are enormous and quite a challenge to get through. You'll find yourself playing the same mission quite a bit in order to get past. Awesome boss battles are also a great edition to the game. The game is a challenge, a fun challenge at that! Full Review »
