In terms of gameplay though Everything or Nothing is far less extravagant. In contrast to previous Bond games it's viewed from a third-person perspective and looks and plays not unlike a more action-packed version of Splinter Cell. There are problems with the entirely manual camera system though--particularly the lock-on for the aiming system, which is frustratingly random in choosing which bad guy you target.
The vehicle sections, which use the same graphics engine as Need for Speed Underground, are less obstreperous and offer some of the most genuinely enjoyable moments as you hurtle in pursuit of bad guys riding heavily armed cars, motorbikes and helicopters. Additionally, both on foot and when driving, the game gives you the chance to trigger "Bond moments" when you find shortcuts or dispatch bad guys in particularly imaginative ways.
Everything or Nothing is perhaps the ultimate example of style over substance in video games, but there's just enough of the latter to ensure that everyone but the most pernickety of gamers will find something to enjoy. --David Jenkins
First of, this game is described as the new Goldeneye - however, Goldeneye this is not. You should go into this game expecting another idea about this game - The Bond movie of 2004.
This game is very much like NightFire in the way it plays, however it is in 3rd person. The shooting system is now slightly more strategic. You use objects to cover you, and then target your enemies from there. Where the camera could so easily fail, it doesn't, although targetting can be slightly difficult for hidden enemies.
A new hand-to-hand fighting system is great - you can punch, kick, counter and throw enemies. You can also interact with the environment - shooting some set pieces such as walls and picking up weapons such as crowbars to take a more stealthy approach.
A new Bond sense means you can pick out points of interest, done by going into the select weapon mode.
There are a good solid variety of missions, with cars, bikes, rally cars! and even helicopters which you can take full control of.
Multiplayer extras are unlocked by doing the co-op mode - special missions made just for two player co-operative mode! Overall the game is great, the third person works, and it can be great fun. The driving mission are good, and there is a sense of strategy and speed about completing tasks. There is also great replay value, for finding all the "Bond moments" hidden throughout the game.
A great game! Recommended. Should be a classic.
