    The character models are astounding, and some of the best I've seen in this genre. [May 2002, p.87]

    The sharp graphics and cool sounds add to the entire Bond theme.

    A fun and absorbing game. Shallow, noisy, and still slightly cool. [May 2002, p.72]
  4. It comes respectively close to being a good game...If they don't take off some of the theme music I'm going to go on a rampage.
  5. Quite easy. The only really difficult spots in the game are the few instances where it's unclear what you're supposed to do next.
  6. While this is no "Never Say Never Again," it's hardly "Goldfinger" either. Sorry about that, 007. [XGamer]

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

    The guns are good, the missions are ok, but the cars need more speed.

    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 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. Expand

    If you've ever played a 007 game before, you pretty much know what to expect from Agent Under Fire

    I must admit, given how old this game is
    If you've ever played a 007 game before, you pretty much know what to expect from Agent Under Fire

    I must admit, given how old this game is it still holds up really well. Bond games very rarely disappoint and this is no exception. The thing with 007 games is that they are short all action thrill rides and stay faithful to the film series.

    The game consists of 12 missions, which can be beaten in about 6-8hrs. Ranging from Driving, On Rails shooter, Stealth & first person gunfights. they're positioned in just the right order so to never get boring and the Driving/On Rails sections are pure James Bond.

    The controls take a bit of getting used to, I do recommend changing them from the default option because that setting is just awful. My biggest gripe about them would have to be that you can't toggle the crouch, which I know is a bit petty but it just ruins the flow a little for me.

    The range of weapons are great (reminds me a lot of that old N64 game that i'm trying not to compare every 007 game to, so I wont). although, what's the point of having the 'Golden Gun' in the game if it isn't a 1-hit kill. That was the point of it, it takes about 4-5 bullets to take down one basic dude. It just shinier that's it!

    All in all I genuinely enjoyed this game from beginning to end. It's a good old fashioned run & gun shooter with everyone's favourite secret agent, what's not to love? If you haven't tried it or added it to your collection yet, why not? shame on you!

    Simply sucks. The only good thing was the 'Bond theme clip' you hear when you make a Bond Move.
