Summary

James Bond meets Flash Gordon in a bargain bin near you.

The Good

Generally good use of the Wolfenstein 3D engine, with a few minor enhancements. The manual is full of lovingly-drawn comic book art and backstory, suggesting that the producers of this game truly appreciate the old-fashioned action hero genre.

The Bad

The plot/setting is kind of silly, yet not at all humorous--so don't expect an Austin Powers-style romp. There really isn't much here that wasn't done in Wolfenstein 3D, so this game lacks the impact of that classic.

The Bottom Line

Although not terrible, this game is really only worth buying if you need to play every FPS out there.
