James Bond 007: NightFire is a wonderful video gaming experience for gamers of all skill levels.
The option to play three seperate difficulty levels, where the easiest level auto aims for you
and the hardest level leaves you completely on your own, truly makes for a great game for anyone who
enjoys a good first person shooter with a Bond theme.
The most common question we have received is "Is this game better than 'Goldeneye' for the N64?". The
answer, in our opinion, is "Possibly". "James Bond 007: NightFire" is much, much better than EAs
007: Agent Under Fire,
which was, at the time, the closest thing we had to a "Goldeneye" experience.
"NightFire" is comparable to "Agent Under Fire", with the style/gameplay being the same,
as the two have the
same publisher, EA. However, "Agent Under Fire" seemed to have been missing that certain Bond
"somethin' somethin'" that
"NightFire" seems to have captured, making it
now the closest thing we've now had to
"Goldeneye". However, "NightFire" and "Goldeneye" are still different enough that they are
hard to compare. Both are wonderful games that should be played by anyone who even likes the thought
of a game starring everyone's favorite secret agent.
In this story, Mr. Bond has to stop the evil Raphael Drake, the bad guy looking to rule the world by
threatening to blow it up with a nuke. You will find yourself infiltrating castles in the Austrian Alps,
under water in the South Pacific, up in space at zero-gravity, and many places in between. Each destination
holds a new adventure and a new scantily clad Bond Girl. Seriously, the guy has a problem.
The controls for the game are beautiful. Never before have I seen so many controller options for a
single game. Finally, a game that acknowledges the fact that having comfortable controls can make or
brake a game, and with so many options, you can't go wrong.
The graphics are the best Bond gaming graphics to date. The occasional glance we get at Bond's face is truly amazing, as
it is Pierce Brosnan. No question about it. Reflections are stunning and water is gorgeous. Other games are more
realistic, but I don't think a Bond game would be a Bond game if it were any more realistic than this one.
Gameplay is great, comfortable and engrossing. The game is primarily a First Person Shooter, however, you will find yourself occasionally
driving, flying, guiding a sub and shooting out of moving vehicles. The mix is a good one. My only gameplay
complaint is a new pet peeve of mine, as I encountered it while playing Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell
immediately after "NightFire", and it drove me nuts.
When I shoot a guy, with no question of missing him, I want it to register. The guy doesn't have to die,
but I'm truly getting angry with these games where I shoot a guy in the face, and nothing happens. Nada.
Remeber the "Goldeneye" headshot stat. They had it down. Why is it that so many of these next-generation
console games have this problem. I don't like dying while yelling at the TV, "Could I have shot you more in the face"!?!
With that being said, I can still highly recommend this game to anyone with any any one of the consoles. It's truly a great game that, upon finishing, you'll just want to go back and earn yourself some medals.
