A classic of the generation...
30 March 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This game is a classic...I didn't even know what James Bond was until I played this game! But it is one of the best first person shooters in the world...Stuff call of duty! This is the best...Me and my two cousins had so much fun finding secret rooms and hiding in the toilet on the facility level then spraying them with bullets when they opened the cubicle door the single player game is amazing as well with detail and size of levels which puts the early medal of honours to shame. Also travelling around that bloody giant graveyard level looking for zukovsky then finding it amusing to shoot him and then realising you have to start the level again. A giant range of personal favourites were 'Frigate' and 'facility' on single player. My favourite multiplayer levels were 'facility' and 'complex' with all those invisible walls. Which the happy programmers thought ahh lets give them a challenge we won't code it. (lazy!) Anyway good game get it for a fiver off ebay and a n64 for £20 at the charity shop and relive the memories I once had.
