Etwas ganz feines hat EA da gezaubert: Viele moderne Elemente, die man sonst nur aus Shootern der Nach-Half-Life-Ära kennt, finden nun endlich auch auf einem Handheld ihre Verwendung. Somit hat Nightfire einiges zu bieten wo Doom und Co schon aufhören: Vorsichtig schleiche ich um die Ecke und schieße der Wache einen Giftpfeil in den Rücken, per Enterhaken gelange ich an abgelegene Orte, sprich: 007 ist einfach cooler, intelligenter, spannender. Der Schwierigkeitsgrad ist beachtlich, ein Multplayermodus fehlt und die Grafik nicht die flotteste, aber all das dürfte Freunde des Genres nicht stören. Kaum zu Glauben, dass die Macher von Backtrack dahinter stecken.

Nightfire is too short a game however, and that is my only big problem with it. Thus I only recommend that hardcore Bond fans buy this game, but for anyone else a rental is your best bet, as you can easily beat this game in one day of playing. That said however, I think Nightfire is the best Bond game in years and certainly should be played by anyone with a PS2

Ultimately, this game's Achilles heel is its unholy union of awkward controls and oatmeal graphics. Still, it's the best-looking and most in-depth FPS for the GBA. The debonair Double-O agent will undoubtedly win a following with this title.

Nightfire has flaws aplenty but, regardless of the not-so-good graphics and poor controls, this is still a good first-person shooter that GBA gamers should definitely own. With interesting levels that throw many bonuses into the mix and an assortment of fun 007 gadgets to play with, the game is certainly true to the console game it was ported from.

Au final, 007 : Nightfire laisse un avis mitigé. Techniquement très soigné, il est pourvu d'un gameplay satisfaisant et relativement varié mais souffre de défauts qui portent un peu sur les nerfs au niveau de sa prise en main (mollesse et imprécision des commandes en tête). Un FPS correct donc mais qui n'éclipse pas les autres productions de la machine.

NightFire isn't a bad shooter on the Game Boy Advance, because it's challenging and it features a lot of great ideas in graphic engines and character behavior on the handheld system. But a little more attention in character movement and hit detection would have made this Bond a much better product.

There are so few FPS on the GBA, I don't know how I could refuse to give this game a spin. Even with a crowded field on the consoles, Nightfire is still one of my favorite FPS of the current generation. Yet, the GBA version lags behind other shooters in the fun department, mainly due to the difficulty and control issues. If you can look past the shortcomings, Nightfire should whet your appetite until GoldenEye is released on the Nintendo DS.
