  1. This isn't the definitive Bond experience and you sure as hell won't be grabbed by the story, but for those times when you feel like taking on the world in style, this is it.
  2. Fun in the short-term and has ambition, but there's not enough innovation to get excited about, or warrant re-playing what is a lengthy franchise title.
  3. Everything or Nothing represents progress, and proves that the abysmal "Nightfire" was a genuine blip rather than a sign of things to come, but the more discerning gamer will still come away nonplussed.

    It's perhaps because the title benefits from such a high production spend, in fact, that the average design and execution becomes more pronounced. [Mar 2004]

    With just as many levels where you'll pray for it to be over than where you're actually having fun, the game turns out to be a mixture of styles that don't meld together as solidly as they should, as well as having several frustrating joypad-throwing moments and often demanding extraordinary feats of memory from the player. [Mar 2004, p.114]

    Best Bond game since Goldeneye. Its not a FPS, but a 3rd person game. It is the most exciting movie style game I've played since Enter TheBest Bond game since Goldeneye. Its not a FPS, but a 3rd person game. It is the most exciting movie style game I've played since Enter The Matrix. Some of the playable sequences, like the motorcycle highway chase were insane. Make sure you play it on easy mode however. There are tons of levels and some are unplayable on harder modes for some reason. The gunplay can be a little stuffy, where its difficult to take on more than 2 guys at a time, but it is worth learning. It is fun to explore and it has pretty good graphics for 2004. The gadgets and vehicle levels make this game. It is obvious this was inspired by many of the Brosnen movies. If you are a fan of Pierce you will love this. They could have made a real movie out of this one. Full Review »

    While the graphics may look a bit aged, Everything or Nothing still lives up to the greatness that a 007 game should be. A completely originalWhile the graphics may look a bit aged, Everything or Nothing still lives up to the greatness that a 007 game should be. A completely original story, a 3rd person perspective, and enough missions and unlockables to keep you busy for a while, this game will entertain any bond fan, no matter their age. Full Review »
