    Strangely good. Despite the loathing that the single-player experience drudges up in me, the driving levels are particularly satisfying, and the rail-based shooter levels add a nice bit of depth, too.
  2. 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.

    Graphically, Agent Under Fire is amazing, leaving similar titles like "Red Faction" and "TimeSplitters" in the dust. [Jan 2002, p.77]

    Some enjoyable driving missions, but a whole lot of throw away first-person sections, leaves me with a game for which I'm shaken, not stirred.

    This game smokes from start to much-too-abrupt ending. [Feb 2002, p.60]
  6. EA has turned in a shockingly playable Bond game that looks as good as it plays – and that is damn fine.

    The only really fundamental issue with the game is its length. [Jan 2002, p.128]

    [Games Radar Rating = Hit] Although it isn't as revolutionary as GoldenEye once was, the deft changes of pace mean it's undoubtedly the most Bond-like game ever. It might not leave you shaken, but it's certainly stirring.
  9. 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.

Levels have great graphics and details, and there are different modes including driving the BMW Z8 in the streets, but the game itself is not very challenging. Multiplayer is fun, after you get the hang out of it, but the only nice thing of this game is that its a Bond game. Full Review »

    Mediocre Bond title doesn't quite seem like it fits in with the Bond universe and the graphics have aged far worse than even Goldeneye 64.

Not a bad game in the series but certainly a forgettable Bond adventure. Full Review »
