Description

You take on the role of James Bond and must save the world. The Phoenix International Corporation is focused on dismantling nuclear warheads throughout the world, but lately evidence has been found that the CEO of the corporation, Raphael Drake, is using his company's concept as a means to find and use the warheads for his own purposes. Because his plans are so well hidden, it is up to Bond, with the help of Q and his gadgets, to stop Drake at whatever cost.

Throughout the game, you will be taken to several exotic areas around the globe, confronting the beautiful Bond women. In your quest to stop the Phoenix Corporation, you have have a variety of weapons available to you, from your trusty Walther to more advanced and prototype machinery.

There are nine total missions, all of which combine stealth, combat, and Q's trusty gadgets, such as your laser watch and X-ray eye glasses.

On the multiplayer side of things, there are three multiplayer modes, some of which include characters and settings from previous Bond movies.
