    One of the only games to really succeed at incorporating multiple gameplay styles into one package and doing all of them well. [May 2002, p.85]
  2. Even though it is on the easy side, this game will keep Bond fanatics coming back till the next game.
  3. Really fun!...In the end, this game is nothing like "Goldeneye." That’s a good thing in my opinion.

    What really breathes longevity in Agent Under Fire is the bot support, something missing from the PlayStation 2 version.
  5. 80
    There's decent action and above-average variety of gameplay.

    It's not "GoldenEye," but I think Bond fans will find it has its own charm. It's absolutely a better version over its PS2 predecessor.

    T.Taboo, what are you on ? You obviously were crap at this game so called the game crap instead. This is a brilliant multiplayer game, I T.Taboo, what are you on ? You obviously were crap at this game so called the game crap instead. This is a brilliant multiplayer game, I haven't had so much fun at my friends expense before. On the down side the single player lacks depth but is only a minor problem. Overall top game! Full Review »

    The first Bond game I owned and one of my favorite Bond games. This game is the black sheep of the Bond games. It's also the second bestThe first Bond game I owned and one of my favorite Bond games. This game is the black sheep of the Bond games. It's also the second best selling Bond game of all time under Goldeneye 007. This one is the best version.

    I liked the voice acting and story for single player. I liked the graphics. The music is generic but I love it. The gameplay was simplistic. The controls aren't as bad as people claim they are. Control setup 3 is the best to use. I liked the car missions. The guns were impressive as well and were accurate for the most part. There were no loading times at all.

    The multiplayer saved the game. it gave us a lot of maps and game modes, the amount of customization for weapon lists, multiplayer characters, gadgets and the bots were good for multiplayer. The multiplayer I think is much better than the world is not enough for the Nintendo 64. The unlockables for multiplayer from single player after getting a platinum medal by playing the missions again and finding all 007 icons gave the game a bit of replay value.

    I loved the classic Bond references such as the BMW Z8 from The World Is Not Enough, the Lotus Esprit from the Spy Who Loved Me and Mr Somerset from From Russia With Love.

    The main flaws of the game is that it was WAY too short with only 12 missions and the ai was terrible.

    It's a good game. If you want better multiplayer, get James Bond Nightfire.

    While Agent Under Fire was hurt by its relatively short length, it still was a great game even though the game's controls don't hold up veryWhile Agent Under Fire was hurt by its relatively short length, it still was a great game even though the game's controls don't hold up very well today. Agent Under Fire has twelve missions including first person, driving and on-rail missions. While there weren't many driving levels, they were one of the games bright spots for sure! Come to think of it, I think Agent Under Fire has the best driving levels of any James Bond game. You get a lot of freedom with those levels and the cars handle very well. The on-rail segments were also very good and were actually better than the on-rail segments from Nightfire. The first person missions however could have been a little better. The AI wasn't very smart. They just charge you which is a bit annoying. A bright spot though is that there are many different ways to approach these levels. You can go in gun blazing or you can use a stealthier approach. Your gadgets come in handy and also offer an additional route to take. Between that and Malprave's plan to clone eight world leaders and you have got everything you expect from a bond game. But let's not forget about the multiplayer. The multiplayer offered many different maps and a few different game modes including combat training, golden gun and top agent to name a few. The game also offered several different options such as zero gravity, jet packs, q-claws and several other boosts that you get from achieving high scores in the single player missions. In short the game had a good amount of replay value. If you like high octane action than this might be a game for you. If you prefer spy based games, you might want to give Nightfire a look as well.
