  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.

    It’s a solid game from a technical standpoint, but extraordinarily bland from a gameplay perspective. [Jan 2002, p.208]

The campaign is fun, but the controls are kind of bad. You can change them to be tolerable, but they're still not great. If you can find this game for cheap, you might want to try it out because the multiplayer is fun. Expand
