James Bond: Top Agent is a strategic fighting game where players gets to create their own secret agents. The game contains 20 levels based on the The Spy Who Loved Me campaign. In each level the player has to fight an enemy player one on one. Each fights starts with the player selecting his inventory. After that, the two fighters chooses a sequence of five different moves that they wants to perform. Whether the player succeeds with a move depends on which move his opponent chooses. For example if the players decide to shoot, while the enemy takes cover, it's likely that he will miss. The game offers some character development. For each fight the player gets skill points that can be spent on improving the player's ability in four different skills (brawling, shooting, gadgetry, dexterity). The player can also get new weapons and equipment from defeated enemies, that can be equipped in later battles.
