  • Summary: The ultimate secret agent is back in his most dangerous adventure yet in James Bond 007: NightFire. Explore new heights and depths like never before-infiltrate towering skyscrapers, take on treacherous underwater missions, and maneuver your sleek Aston Martin V12 Vanquish through the streets of Tokyo while turning on the Bond charm with glamorous (and sometimes deadly) Bond women. New state-of-the-art upgradeable gadgets and weapons and original missions including zero-gravity assignments will leave you shaken and stirred. [Electronic Arts] Expand

  1. Not only is the game fun, the movie sequences are a joy to watch and make a good game into a great must have title.
  2. Stealing the best gadgets and characters from the movies, NightFire lets you decide how to topple the requisite megalomanical villain: Use stealth and gizmos (like Eurobabe-revealing x-ray specs—thanks, Q!) or go in guns blazing.
  3. Though Nightfire does have its problems, it most definitely could have been worse.
  4. The PC version's straightforward nature and bungled multiplayer options make the game a passable experience at best when compared with other first-person shooters for the PC.
  5. Nightfire has some of the worst AI I've ever seen in a big-budget game release. [Feb 2003, p.61]
  6. What can I tell you about the AI? It's UNBELIEVABLY scripted. It's so scripted it's not even funny.
  7. Simply the most incompetently crafted shooter in living memory. [Mar 2003, p.98]

    How the hell is this rated higher on PS2? The controls on PC work like an ordinary FPS on PS2 the game is played for you. The game itself is quite boring, easy to get lost on and isn't satisying at all. There's no sense of pacing or action. It's not an easy game, but having said that it isn't excting or intense. Even the array of gadgets don't make the game cool. Expand
