Summary: This was not a great James Bond game. It had a small array of weapons and used a make-believe James Bond. The only outstanding feature was the BMW Z8 that had 4 usable gadgets equipped to the vehicle. I only recommend this game for James Bond fans for collectible purposes only.
Summary: If you want to buy this game it is a great purchase for a 007 fan but to a regular buyer it might just be a rental. If you don't like FPS games the I would buy it yet. I would buy Red Faction play through it and if you like it and you're a James Bond fan I'd buy. I have the gamecube version and looking to buy a PS2 copy since I don't have a gamecube memory card. Medal of Honor is also a good series to find out if you like FPS.
Summary: I recall buying this game many years ago when I bought my PS2. I also recall immediately being disappointed. The storyline is extremely poor, at best, the controls are kind of a pain, and shooting is neither gratifying nor incredibly easy. I understand the poor quality of the story since this is an action game and most people would disregard the plot even if it was good. Nonetheless, the gameplay is just really nowhere near good enough to get away with this.
Excerpt: "...through 10 linked missions as James Bond with the end goal being to defeat the head of a rising terrorist organisation called Malgrave. Graphics: Although not terrible, they are starting to show their age. Everything has that blurry edge to it compared to the crisp visuals of modern consoles. Sounds: Well the guns sound great. That may sound silly but I’ve known plenty of games where the guns sounds quite tinny when fired but Agent Under Fire ...
James Bond: Agent Under Fire (PS2): Solid but a sign of greater things to come

Summary: Bond games have been very hit and miss in the past, but it is refreshing to see a game that's not an adaptation of a film, and instead has a go at something fresh. Agent Under Fire may not be perfect, but it's a bold and brave effort that's worth it for the impressive multiplayer mode. That said, it does falter in a few areas - the graphics are fairly sub-standard for a PS2 game at the time.
Excerpt: "To sum this game up, it is a good average action game. The charatcer of Bond in this game is quite average. The game story starts trying to save a CIA agent. Then the story goes on to finding out about a man called block and then on to the main bad guy behind everything. Its a simple story. The gameplay of the game is rubbish. Even when you play the game several times through, you still press a wrong button and it messes up your game and you get ...
Excerpt: "Once you start playing this game, it's quite surprising to find that AGENT UNDER FIRE brings us nothing that new. Although they have managed to bring us some new levels. In addition to the standard but well thought about levels, we are graced with the chance to get our hand on some of Q's high powered machinery in the tyipical but highly expected pursuits, on road and rail. There is a good part to this game, some of these levels are actually really ...
Pros: Original single - player storyline that builds into a game that is worthy to be part of the Bond legacy with both bad guys and good, both new and familiar to the bond series .
Cons: James Bond Agent Under Fire would have been worthy progress from the N64 to the Playstation 2, if however it's only got a few levels, and these are sadly not all that .
Summary: When I picked up this title originally in the shops, I merely thought to myself "Another Bond game, it will be as poor as the last one" However, after putting the title back on the shelf, I read a magazine review of the game which claimed it was better than Goldeneye, so I decided that if it comes close to Goldeneye standards, I should buy this game. So, in the not too distant past, I shelled out 37 pounds for 007 - Agent Under Fire.
