Tomorrow Never Dies is een spel met veel afwisseling en lekkere wapens. Heerlijk knallen maar ook precisie is soms vereist. Be cool, be Bond.
Playstation Illustrated
Despite this game's control issues, the developers put so much thought into the different missions and Bond's abilities, that it is still definitely a game to check out. If you are a Bond fan or 3rd person action/adventure lover, do yourself a favor and rent it. If the control works for you, buy it.

So in general I can summarize Tomorrow Never Dies as being a very good Action/Adventure title. Although it's no Syphon Filter, it's pretty close. The game has the best arsenal of weapons and gadgets in any videogame, it has scenes from the movie and the ability to Ski, Drive a BMW, and swim all in one game is great. While many critics may say the game is bad, that's because they are all comparing it to Goldeneye, and even compared to GoldenEye, TND is still very good in my opinion. Make sure to put this on your holiday list, it may be a little short but it's still a lot of fun.
Mega Fun
Zuallererst ein Kompliment an die Jungs von Black Ops, da ich nicht mit einem solch guten Game gerechnet habe. Warum TND eine höhere Wertung versagt bleibt, zeigt sich erst auf den zweiten Blick. Die Gesamtspielzeit ist mit ca. 4 Stunden recht kurz ausgefallen. Ferner kommt ihr durch die leicht ungenaue Analog-Steuerung häufig in die Bredouille. Zwar wird euch im Modus harte Kost geboten, doch ähneln sich die Aufgaben von Mission zu Mission zu sehr. Zudem fällt die Framerate in der letzten Mission derart ab, dass ein ungenaues Agieren die Folge ist.
It’s worth mentioning one more time: this is a fun game. One of its biggest strengths is the variety it offers. Sometimes you get to shoot, other times ski or drive. If you’re in a Rambo kind of mood arm yourself with the assault rifle, otherwise use your standard PK7 to hunt down the enemy. Unfortunately there are only 10 levels and most people will find they can conquer the game over a weekend, so renting it is probably your best option.
If you hate secret agent stories, Bond movies and the occasional Rum Collins, then at least rent the game and see how you enjoy it. If you do enjoy all of the above, then this is a game meant for you. The one thing I'm wondering right now is if they'll be turning this into a regular series. It'd be nice to see The World is Not Enough next year and then maybe after that they could start releasing some of the older Bond movies as games. Ahhh, to wear a suit, adjust a tie and take on S.P.E.C.T.R.E. Now that would be cool.
This game boils down to one thing, awesome combat as the coolest espionage agent in the world (fictional of course). If you like James Bond or even if you don't but you like a fast paced tactical shooter then this is the pick for you.
Spel för Alla
Den största fördelen med Tomorrow Never Dies är de ruskigt fiffiga motståndarna. Särskilt när du spelar i James Bond-läget är de riktigt kluriga att ha att göra med. De hukar sig bakom skydd, rullar fram och tillbaka för att undvika att bli träffade och samarbetar med varandra på alla möjliga smarta sätt för att ta kål på Bond. Trots att det här spelet hade kunnat vara mycket mer, så är det ett väldigt roligt shoot'em up-spel.
GamePro (US)
When is a sequel not a sequel? When it has the same lead character, but a different developer and publisher, and plays differently on an entirely different console. Such is the case with James Bond's latest foray into the videogame world, Electronic Arts' Tomorrow Never Dies.
Player One
Un James Bond divertissant et bien réalisé qui amusera les foules. Les initiés, eux, n'en feront qu'une bouchée trop rapide.
Bourré de petits défauts qui deviennent au bout du compte un gros handicap, Tomorrow Never Dies déçoit. Les quelques aspects positifs sont gâchés par un manque de sérieux et de finalisation.
Tomorrow Never Dies isn't a particularly bad game, but it's definitely one you might want to consider renting instead of buying.
Cincinnati Enquirer
This game is not as violent as some of its counterparts. There is not an overabundance of blood or graphic scenes. This game is entertaining to a certain extent, but it would take an iron will to deal with the frustration and actually complete it.
It's unfortunate that TND must be compared to Goldeneye, but if you wanted to put your money down for a Bond game, and you had to pick from the two, you'd expect an honest answer. No matter how much you try to separate the two games, and review them individually, it's a lost cause. Goldeneye is still so good two years later. Plus, Goldeneye is the reason that MGM and Black Ops decided to keep the Bond license to themselves. Bond was popular again.
Super Play
Som många säkert redan har erfrit är inte heller Star Wars: The Phantom Menace så bra som man hade hoppats att det skulle vara, men eftersom det spelet släpptes medan filmen fortfarande var aktuell kommer många ändå att få ut något av spela det. Tomorrow Never Dies är däremot på tok för sent ute, och det utgör verkligen spiken i kistan för Black Ops projekt. Nu när Världen räcker inte till redan går på bio finns det ingen större anledning att bry sig om det här spelet, och dess inaktualitet kompenseras knappast av dålig spelkontroll, trista banor och ful grafik. Tomorrow Never Dies räcker helt enkelt inte till.
Game Revolution
Tomorrow Never Dies is really just an empty and shallow game. Unlike some of the Bond movies, which are tremendous fun with their ludicrous plots, fast paced action and classic one-liners, there is far too much about this game that is just crying out for more. I have the feeling that the primary goal of this game was to release at the same time as the new Bond movie, The World Is Not Enough. Tomorrow Never Dies needs to go back to Q's laboratory for some more work.
