    Smooth movement, great music and a captivating story line will keep Bond fans coming back for more. [Jan 2003, p.170]
  2. If you like Bond, first-person shooters, or just a bit of action, you should definitely check this one out.
  3. Stealing the best gadgets and characters from the movies, NightFire lets you decide how to topple the requisite megalomanical villain: Use stealth and gizmos (like Eurobabe-revealing x-ray specs—thanks, Q!) or go in guns blazing.
  4. Does a great job bringing in the Bond-spy factor into the first-person shooter genre, and is a fun, although short, game.
  5. 79
    It does a decent job of holding its own against other Bond games from the past.
  6. Those purely looking for a first-person shooter won't find that NightFire is the best choice around, but as a Bond game, NightFire successfully re-creates the style, presentation, and action of its source material.

    It's bad enough that you have to sit there and watch as Bond does his thing, but what's really frustrating is that these [cinematic] sequences (parachuting off a skyscraper, somersaulting to avoid gunfire) illustrate precisely the kind of actions that you should be able to control. [22 Nov 2002, p.84]

    Nightfire is one of the most fun games ever, just double its length and its a perfect 10. Playing it on multiplayer with a friend is fun, but Nightfire is one of the most fun games ever, just double its length and its a perfect 10. Playing it on multiplayer with a friend is fun, but the single player is simply the best. Expand
