is classic Bond at its best. Every aspect of the game just screams BOND, from the superb single-player to the addicting multi-player. This year's incarnation is every bit of fun as last year's. You'll quickly be drawn into the game as you flip through your Q-gadgets and arsenal of weaponry while infiltrating enemy bases. The wide assortment of items at your disposal makes Nightfire
also very strategic.
Although using stealth is definitely the preferred choice of infiltration, you don't really have to sneak up on everyone to get through the game. If you want to unlock all of the goodies in the game (without using cheats), however, you'll have to find a balance between sneakiness and efficiently making your way through each level. The levels that you will be working through are very well-designed, but it's too bad there aren't more of them. True, you will have 12 missions in Nightfire, but using a level twice is an unfortunate example of what takes place in the game.
Another fun aspect of Nightfire is that not every level involves controlling Bond in the first-person perspective. You'll also be treated to driving levels, as well as shooting levels where you don't control the vehicles, but instead control a gun inside the vehicles. This is a great way to break the action up a bit, but these 'alternate' levels are a bit too short, making it easy to beat the game in a relatively quick manner.
And, of course, Bond wouldn't be Bond without an awesome multi-player experience. 007: Nightfire is very, very addicting, and very, very fun. With up to four human players and the addition of up to six computer-controlled 'BOTS,' Nightfire has one of the best multi-player games on the market. until you hit the inevitable slow-down. Just when you're about to blast your opponent with a guided missile, the game jumps into super-slow-motion and the frame-rate effectively halves. So what once was a stellar game has officially become part lemon.
