This is such a horrible game!
17 November 2005 | by (The Penumbra) – See all my reviews

Ugh! I remember seeing a review for this game in the old 'Mega' magazine from Future Publishing back in 1993. They gave it a bad review but I was still keen to play it as I like most Bond movies and the graphics looked bright and colorful. Well, it took me 12 years to get the game for a decent price (that would be 99p instead of £39:99) and I must tell you right now that the game IS rancid and I can't believe that rotten junk like this used to sell for such a high RRP.

The story involves Bond running all over an island complex defusing bombs and rescuing generic blonde bimbos (Bond girls?) and shooting at generic villains. It's extremely dull. And what makes it worse is that the music is also downright horrible, the sound effects are laughable (checkout the sound of 'going downstairs footsteps) and the controls are stiff, slow and sluggish. Which is pretty much the kiss of death for an action game that relies on quick reflexes.

The levels are also poorly designed. Yes, it's a platformer, but you never know which platforms you can stand on and which you'll just fall through. It's so annoying and will cost you many lives. Plus, some things you can walk through, while others are impenetrable. Each level is a maze without meaning to be. And since the game is so very, very slow, making your way through them becomes a long and arduous task.

Never buy this game for any reason. Stay well away from it. It sucks so bad.
