EA could do better...

Summary: No matter what, 007 Goldeneye for N64 (developed by Rareware), will be the best first person shooter for this classic series. Not only because of the high fun factor, but also because of the high replay value it has. You can play it again and again, not to mention the multiplayer mode, which is great. 007 Agent Under Fire, by EA Games, tries to get close.
Summary: What IS it about these last FOUR 007 games (Tomorrow Never Dies, The World Is Not Enough, 007 Racing and now Agent Under Fire)??? They all fail to live up to the gameplay/storyline of the magnificent Goldeneye. For those of you reading the advance 'reviews' proclaiming this to rival Goldeneye should listen to those of us that just wasted 50 dollars to purchase: The Game Is Not Enough - to rip off a recent Bond title.
Excerpt: I've been meaning to play a Bond game for a while now and decided to pick this as my first. Now although it doesn't do much particularly wrong, there's not really anything that stands out either. You have your set pieces, your explosions and your fast paced driving but everything that is done just blends into one. Although I enjoyed it enough to finish it, there wasn't really anything that made me go wow no matter how much it tried.
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 killed.
Excerpt: I liked it, but it is too short, and i'd only recomend it if you think your slow at shooter games. It has great car chace levels, and one even has the tank. The hellocopters are very realistic. When the hellocopter is hit, IT takes the damage, not the flier, ect. It's plot of the cloning lab was somewhat weak, as I was confused as to who was dead and who was the current evil. It took me 2 min. to learn the controls, and 1 week to finish the game.
Excerpt: A week or so ago, i borrowed this game from a friend, thinking that it would be just another game with 007 in it, the same old storylines and the same old characters...I was severely mistaken. On the single player part of this game is where it shines out the most. Ths story is that bond has been send to an enemy building to save a missing agent. The twist is that there is a nuclear submarine about to be launched; and she is tied to the top of it.
Excerpt: I bought this game after the discounted price tag of £30 caught the corner of my eye! I was originally looking for something else, but as a Bond fan, and as i intented to purchase the product eventually, i thought what the hell, i'll buy it NOW! And ever since I switched it on for the first time, I still play it regularly now!
Excerpt: I purchased this game after being drawn in to all the hype from the adverts and previews. After playing this game for about a week, i was left with mixed opinions. It is a very good game. The missions have set objectives and a good plot, which is typical of any Bond film. The graphics are really good and the level design and layout are superb. There is a wide assortment of guns and pick ups, and a really playable multi player mode.
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.
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 .
Excerpt: After owning a N64 for two years and playing nothing but Goldeneye (and more recently Perfect Dark) I had been eagerly awaiting the release of 007 in Agent Under Fire for quite a while. After 5 minutes of playing the game I realised that I was going to be sorely disappointed. Why? Well it would be easier to say why not!
