  • 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

    It doesn't have any driving levels! In multiplayer a headshot means nothing. It takes 3 headshots to kill someone! (Also personally I think the Bond babes look way better on XBox.) Expand

    This game has a slew of technical issues. That aside, gameplay can be described as mediocre at best. If you want a good "spy experience" play the No One Lives Forever games instead. They are FAR better. Expand

    This game is like a cheap demo for ps2. I rated it because in PS2 there is 12 levels Pc 09 levels and in ps2 the levels have cars and choppers you can go in. the levels are longer more understandable (with a betta storyline PS2 ). The Weapon are rubbish and are verry small catagory of weapons PC doesn't have Walther PPK (Walfram PP7) and Gold. No Golden P99 only p99. No crossbow lots more that is not seen from PS2 to Pc. 1 Gadget is missing that is the shaver in pc. you cant fit and remove the silencer off of one or 2 machine guns. Graphics are rubbish. To warn people of thinking of getting this game on pc DONT get it on PS2 XBOX Nintedo Gamecube ETC Not PC had it for a month less i dont want to play it any more since i saw and played on PS2 version.
