  1. The levels were well thought out and most have more than one way through them which is refreshing to see.
  2. A rather straight-forward action game. There are a few minor quibbles, but on the whole the action is smooth and frantic. Looks, sounds and feels like Bond. [Nov 2005]
  3. Drive the Goldfinger DB5, fly the Thunderball jetpack and fight some classic baddies in challenging environments. It's enough to make you toss your trilby on to a hat-rack in delight.
  4. While it lasts, Bond fans should fall head over heels for From Russia With Love.
  5. It lacks any measure of challenge, playing out more like a shooting gallery in spots than a proper action game. And above all else, it simply lacks that spark--that thrilling feeling that wasn't just one key part of "Everything or Nothing," but rather, was the entire essence of what made that game so enjoyable.
  6. It all makes for an action game kinda like your typical Bond girl: fun to look at but shallow. With simple mission objectives, cinch puzzles, and autoaim (that you can tweak for more skillful shots if you like), this game practically plays itself.
  7. It's harmless mass-market entertainment; the kind that any discerning gamer should already know to leave well alone. [Christmas 2005, p.116]

    It's got Sean Connery as Bond - what more needs to be said?! The game itself is pretty good and I had a lot of fun playing it.

    Feels a lot like the classic Bond. A little slower than Everything or Nothing, but I think the fighting is more fun.

    Great vintage Bond look to the entire game. Jet pack is awesome - FUN! Great hand to hand action, too. Best Bond game yet.

    1st of all let me just say that I'd rate Nightfire and Everything Or Nothing as both 9/10 (Rogue Agent much much lower, but that's another story). This game plays like Everything or Nothing, evcept not as fun. It does look good, and the connery bond is an excellent one, but the levels just aren't well designed. It's like someone trying to make a deadline created them. Expand
