Summary

Pretty dull, but does have Christopher Lee...

The Good

Christopher Lee's voice acting is great as his voice is unbeatable. The dual firing system is pretty well executed. Multiplayer is pretty well done too.

The Bad

It seems so rushed, the gunfights all feel the same, (GoldenEye 64 didn't seem nearly as repetitive), and the eye powers just seem tacked on. The sound effects aren't anything special, and the rocket fights with helicopter things feel very fake and plastic. It is very linear as well, really after 10 hours play there hasn't been one choice of direction.

The Bottom Line

A fairly poor attempt at creating a shooter that would rival GoldenEye on 64. It doesn't have any of the charm and feels very flat most of the time. You can't even be that evil despite the fact that you're a rogue agent... A lack of variety really leaves this game in the lurch. Glad I only paid $26AU for it.
