Let's face it, the gameplay of Golden Eye
nearly single-handedly kept the N64 around for a few more years than it should have been. That was followed up by a couple of crappy versions on the PlayStation, neither of which had the caliber of the first. Well fear not Bond lovers, because James Bond 007: Agent Under Fire
will take you back to the days of skipping class and playing into the wee hours of the morn. This 1st person shooter is everything like before, except that it's not always an FPS. It's also a racing game, much like Spy Hunter
. This lethal combination will provide hours of fun, well after you've beaten the game.
The story line for AUF is an original one, since we've been without a Bond flick for a couple years now. James' arsenal of weaponry and gadgets will get you through 12 fun levels, where you have the chance to unlock cheats if you pass a certain criteria of scoring. Not every level has a boss you need to beat, but each will have an action-packed ending, such as jumping over a river with your BMW, or blowing away a couple tanks with one of your own.
Of course, the most important feature of Golden Eye that kept gamers coming back for more was the multiplayer mode. So guess what EA has brought back? That's right, get together with three of your friends and shoot each other until the sun comes up. There are five different modes to choose from for multiplayer, so your itchy trigger fingers should be satisfied.
