  1. Barring some of the more advanced weaponry, I found this game to have a much greater sense of reality to many other FPS games I have played. You have to be slow, patient and stealthy to survive. Reality is lethal.
  2. Rogue Agent doesn't really break any new ground in the FPS genre, other than allowing you to duel wield any combination of single-handed weapons you wish, but that doesn't mean it's a bad game either.

    Rogue Agent had the premise to be a great action title, playing the villain but it isn't. Rogue Agent is an average FPS, with an uninspiring single player, with decent multiplayer.
  4. The multiplayer mode suffers a blow from strangely slow movement and some arenas that are too small to avoid large blast effects. [Feb 2005, p.110]
  5. The explosions appear fake, the animation is a little wooden and the fact that bodies disappear is just laughable. The sound design is much better ' the music is great, and respected actor Dame Judy Dench adds some weight to the otherwise poor production values.
  6. 50
    Unless you're a huge and/or irrational Bond nut, it offers nothing that competing games don't do better. That's a shame, because the premise is grand.
  7. Rogue Agent ticks all the boxes on the shooter checklist, but lacks any of the oomph needed to make these worthy of note. Unlike the beautiful set pieces of other Bond games and movies, the levels within are about as exciting as a visit to your local public library.

The multiplayer function is the only saving grace of this game, allowing for limited entertainment, but entertainment nonetheless. Expand

    I've played pretty much every Bond game since the original Goldeneye and I can conclusively state that this is the worst. Sooo I've played pretty much every Bond game since the original Goldeneye and I can conclusively state that this is the worst. Sooo repetetive. Enter a room, kill the guys, enter the next room, kill the guys, enter the next room.... Previous Bond games have had mini challenges and shootable objects and gadgets and vehicles and stealth and have basically been fun. Walking through 100 near identical rooms killing 100 identical bad guys is not fun. Collapse
