  1. Not only is it dripping with production values, not only are the action sequences intense and the control spot on, but it NEVER stops being fun. With the hefty amount of challenge and unlockables, replay value is also extremely high.
  2. In online, single player, or cooperative play, perform slick maneuvers like rooftop bike jumps, and earn “Bond Moment” points for unlockable weapons and levels.
  3. The over-theshoulder style does allow for the seamless integration of glossy scenes to drive on the plot and add a more genuine movie-like feel to the game.
  4. The most impressive feature of Everything or Nothing has to be the visuals. The game makes gamers feel like they are in the middle of James Bond movie while providing top notch graphics.
  5. EA Canada has done a stellar job in taking the Bond license and creating an experience that is right up there with watching the multi-million dollar budget movies.
  6. The shooting levels definitely benefit from the 3rd person perspective but the targeting controls could use some more work.
  7. Offers an intense, action packed experience that ties in a nice selection of varied gameplay aspects to ensure the game never gets tired.
  8. An ambitious but successful interactive adventure that blurs the lines between motion pictures and video games.
  9. This is by far the BEST. BOND. GAME. EVER. And I say that without a doubt in my mind.

    The first great translation of everything that makes James a 00 agent, and it's perhaps the best console Bond yet.
  11. Perhaps best of all, however, is the way each level has multiple paths and solutions, not only during the 3PS (3rd-Person Shooter) elements, but also during the fantastic driving levels – which utilize the Need for Speed engine – where you’ll often have an option between Bond’s various automobiles (yes, including the Aston Martin), or the Q-Bike, and even, on occasion, a helicopter.
  12. From the beginning of the game it's obvious that EA has gone to extremes to ensure that it feels just like the movies, and it really pays off.
  13. The level of replayability should keep you occupied for months and this is the version you have to have if you are a multiplatform owner, simply because of the special online co-op play.

    Across the board, the slick environments, cut-scenes, and character faces shine, although some of the animations are awkward, particularly when 007 runs. A great title song by Mya, strong voice acting, and booming sound effects complete the package.
  15. Packing serious star power, astounding production values, and surprisingly entertaining gameplay, Everything or Nothing delivers on all relevant counts, providing for a rousing escapade that ranks among the best to feature Her Majesty's finest.
  16. Besides making a fantastically epic and over-the-top ultra-Bond flick, EA snuck in a little something called "a fantastic game" into the mix as well. [Apr 2004, p.97]
  17. A third-person action game that blends shooting, driving, and other types of action together in a seamless fashion, delivering an awesome experience that puts you in 007's shoes better than any game to come before it.
  18. The game can be a little easy at times, and the short levels hurt the flow of the game, but if you’ve been a fan of 007 on the big screen or on a console, you won’t be disappointed by his latest outing.
  19. The sound effects and musical score (24's Sean Callery) really help the game give it more of that old-time Bond feel with mixes of classical Bond music.

    Good points: All the stars from the bond films is in it. It beats Goldeneye on the N64 Very cinematic Choose Either Stealth or bullets A new bond sense Was not as bad as the last 3rd person bond: Tomorrow Never Dies. Good Graphics Bad points: Targetting can be Annoying Jaws does not talk ( Again ) You can't move during " Bond sense" You can't jump Overall: Great Game. Full Review »
