  1. EA has turned in a shockingly playable Bond game that looks as good as it plays – and that is damn fine.
  2. Part "Mission: Impossible," part "Golden Eye," and all fun. But poor controls hamper the fun and put a dull sheen on the otherwise glossy secret agent.
  3. The mission settings are remarkable though, as are the overall graphics and sound in the game, which almost make up for the somewhat cheesy objectives.
  4. Great graphics, a solid story, good sound effects and a slick multiplayer mode are undermined by a derivative, unispired and boring first player experience.

    The action has a "vanilla" feel. Although the missions are engaging and fairly exciting, you've played ones just like them dozens of times before, and the hefty helping of silly, ornate gadgets and Bond-girl quips is cumbersome.
  6. Not great, but good with an imaginative storyline, spectacular graphics and a soundtrack that keeps you excited throughout the levels.
  7. It’s a solid game from a technical standpoint, but extraordinarily bland from a gameplay perspective. [Jan 2002, p.208]

    Great game but poor enemy AI. One one level, a guard saw me said hey you pointed his gun at me for like five seconds turned around, ran and Great game but poor enemy AI. One one level, a guard saw me said hey you pointed his gun at me for like five seconds turned around, ran and said sound the alarm. Despite flaws this game is sweet in both multi and single player, and gorgous graphics. Expand

    Better than "Goldeneye"? NO! The graphics are nice but the game lacks the frantic speed of "Timesplitters" and the multiplayer fun of Better than "Goldeneye"? NO! The graphics are nice but the game lacks the frantic speed of "Timesplitters" and the multiplayer fun of "Goldeneye." Good, but not worth your money. Rent it. Expand
