Quick Review
Thumbs Up from Jer Thumbs Up from Ali
Although I doubt anything will ever live up to Rare's exquisite "Goldeneye", 007: Agent Under Fire from Electron Arts (EA) holds up quite well. The first thing you need to realize is that this is a PS2 game. It looks and feels a lot like Grand Theft Auto 3 and Spy Hunter, and tends to lean more to an arcade style of gameplay than to a purely skill driven first person shooter, like Goldeneye. It follows then, that this game is extremely easy. Surprisingly easy, as a matter of fact. I was able to get through most missions on the first try, mainly because of the copious amount of body armor placed all over this game. This isn't necessarily a bad thing. It is quite enjoyable to not be killed every 5 minutes and the ease keeps the frustration level very low.

"Agent Under Fire" is played primarily in the first person, however, there are a variety of circumstances in which you'll find yourself. One mission you might play in classic first person, the next mission you're driving a sweet BMW around a city. The car is equipped with missiles, guns, smoke, everything gadgety. This mode is quite entertaining and you can think of it as Spy Hunter. Also, there are missions, where you find yourself manning the turret of a tank, blowing up everything in your path. The variety is a nice feature and it is integrated quite well, however, it never really feels right; like you're playing something other than Bond.

The game is divided neatly into 12 missions, with each mission consisting of several objectives. The objectives are the normal Bond fare like using your laser to cut a lock, or rescuing hostages. The game also offers a bronze, silver, and gold medal system based on various stats and mission time (much like the Star Wars series). This gives some incentive to replay the missions, and it is fun the first few times through, but not enough so to buy the game.

The graphics are great (I forgot which system I was playing until I realized I had a PS2 controller in my hand), but the controls could use some tweaking. I felt that strafing was unnatural (either the L1/L2, or right analog stick), and you'll experience some confusion when switching between gadgets and weapons. Otherwise, L2 works well for manual targeting and all the other controls are what you'd expect.

In conclusion, "007: Agent Under Fire," will satisfy that Bond craving you have had, and it is truly a fun game to play. However, if you are expecting a real Bond experience; difficulty, stealth, and excellent AI, you'll be disappointed. It's the perfect renter for the Christmas vacation. Happy ending and all.

Use your Q-Pulse to disable the van without damaging the cargo.
Streets of Bucharest > Jumping the River
Use the Q-Booster you pick up immediately before crossing the river immediately before you cross the river.
Streets of Bucharest > Destroying Tanks
At the end of the level you will encounter 2 tanks. To destroy them, fire your missles at the red tanker cars in the train moving directly above the tanks.
Poseidon > Alternate Cut-Scene
Get the verification card sitting on the bench in the room with the sentry guns, lasers, and a bunch of guys in white uniforms at their own sheilded consoles. If you pick it up the intermission cut-scene will be different from the original of Bond getting gassed. Also, your start point in the Mediterranean Crisis level will be different.

Bad Diplomacy > Disarm Lasers
Use your Q-Specs and locate the secret hatches in the lasered area just past the kitchen. Press the action button and use your Q-Laser to cut the wires. Disarming the lasers makes for an easier level experience, and it counts as a Bond Move.
Night of the Jackal > Killing Carla
Shoot at her (try to aim for the head) until she moves back. Once she has moved, shoot at the barrels next to her. This will move her directly to the spot she needs to be in so you can push her in the tank by activating the crane.
Forbidden Depths > The End
Bloch runs out on a plank. Use your auto aim and keep shooting at him until he runs back and shuts off the fan. Use your RCH-1 missiles to hit the red targets above the stopped fan. There are three of them.
