    An oppressive auto-aim system, weak enemy AI, and simplistic puzzles keep gameplay straightforward and repetitive. [Summer 2002, p.93]

    The second best version I have played out of all three releases of this childhood game.

    The graphics for the Xbox 2002 version were good and I still think it holds up. The character models still hold up in my opinion. The soundtrack is generic but I do like it. The guns look like their real life counterpart and sound accurate. The gameplay is simplistic and linear. I do love the car missions. The controls are good. Setup 2 is the best controls option.

    The main flaws are that the game's story is way too short with only 12 missions and the Ai is terrible but if set to 00 Agent Difficulty it becomes really challenging. The saving grace though is by playing the game's story and achieving platnium medals when playing the missions a second time and collecting all 007 icons to unlock weapons, upgrades and skins gave the game some replay value.

    The multiplayer was a great start for the first Bond Game in the 2000s. This and the gamecube version are the only ones to have bots. There was so much to customize like bots, weapon lists, rules and more.

    Overall a good game.

Shoot lots of bad guys who have way less health than you and use cool Bond gadgets. They stuck with the basics here. Full Review »

What makes this For its time, AUF is no Goldeneye, but it does have its moments. The Bond moves are a nice touch, and the gameplay is decent. What makes this game is the multiplayer. Honestly, I played Halo back in 2001 at Comdex in Vegas, and my first impression playing this game was that it was more fun than Halo. Cloaking, the Spiderman claw, jet pack, etc. Now, everyone raves about Halo, but I dont' see it. Average to me. To each his own I guess. Full Review »
