Product Description

Amazon.co.uk Review

You can't keep him off the telly on a bank holiday and nowadays he seems to be almost as prevalent in the gaming world. That's right: James Bond is back on your consoles in 007 NightFire--and ready to endorse a bottle of vodka near you.

Games companies are weird. This release comes in the same year as the 40th anniversary of James Bond, as well as Die Another Day, the 20th film to feature the loveable old womanising drunk. So what do EA, proud bearers of the 007 games license, do? They make a game based on an amalgamation of all the Bond movies, with their own "original" story line, then go and stick Pierce Brosnan's face and a bunch of clips from Die Another Day in it. Whaaaat?

Bizarre marketing decisions aside, this could finally be the game to come out from behind the shadow of the seminal N64 classic GoldenEye. Which means, of course, that this is a stealthy first-person shooter (with a few car-racing levels thrown in for good measure) bolted onto a cracking multi-player mode. Following on from GoldenEye is a bit like being asked to make Citizen Kane 2, but EA have sensibly gone back to the spirit of the original and NightFire is much more strategic than their last attempt, the rather shallow Agent Under Fire. Once again you can learn a pathological hatred of security cameras as you use an even wider array of Q gadgetry to kill people without them even noticing.

The multi-player mode is also good, with meatier weapons than last time, including a particularly fun remote-control missile launcher. People are always crooning about nobody doing it better than Bond, but in the gaming world that's not always been true; with this game, though, it looks like he's taken the ejector seat straight to the top of the first-person shooter pile. --David Jenkins

5.0 out of 5 stars Bond Is Back in style! 28 Dec 2002
This is simply my favourite game since HALO and Golden eye. The Graphics are brilliant. The Multiplayer mode rocks.You can be oddjob with is a bowler hat to hack people apart with. What other game can u get where you take control of a remote helicopter and nail the enemy into none existance. I dont care what anyone else sayes, because i think it rocks. The replay value if brilliant. Sniping from a helicopter is great. It is worth buying just so you can drive the fully loaded Austin Martin V12 Vanquish. Shooting down a helicopter from inside a cable car. It is only bond who can do that.This game is simply the best! Well Done Electronic Arts You have at last made a very good game!

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant in every aspect! 9 Dec 2002
By A Customer
This Game is brilliant there are endless possibilites in multiplayer the weapons you have in the game are well designed and are what set the mood. In Single player the levels are well designed and have many things you can do on it the enemys on the levels are tough to beat due to there response time. when playing on multi player you have the option to set up the al bots which can be for teams or for all out war!. when you set up the bots you can make them vengeful, extremely fast and brilliant shots. this is the best game i have bought this year and it would be good for a christmas present.

5.0 out of 5 stars Set your Night on Fire 10 Jan 2004
By Brian B
Have to say this was bought on a quick decision.
I also have to say it sits proudly somewhere at the top of my favourite games list.
It really is a joy to play, with lots of action, not _too much_ thinking, and tons of variety to the levels. The missions really are varied.
The driving is top notch, but a little linear in the way it's done. Could have done with loads more though, as it really is great fun blasting on the roads.
The shooting levels are great, with some levels having different ways to go, so to avoid enemy and just shoot them from behind.
Along with a great singleplayer with plenty to unlock, NightFire also comes with a brilliant multiplayer. It really is recommended, with lots of game modes to try, brilliant range of stylish Bond weaponary, and the ability to add up to 6 bots into play. This game really is on par with Goldeneye, and having owned it for about 4 months, can still be found in the console often.
Sound and graphics are top also top notch, very nice sounding weapon fire and beautiful videos.
This game comes highly recommended by me....It's Goldeneye with cars! The next game is what I'm looking foward to next.

4.0 out of 5 stars nIGHTFIRE 13 Dec 2003
By A Customer
This game is a lot of fun. The single player campaign is very good with challenging missions. However there are not ewnouigh of these. The missions are good with good graphics and scenery. the really great thing about this game is the multiplayer. Tip-Unlock the EVERYTHING cheat. I don't remember whast rthe code is but you can find it on the web. After doing this I found myself spending 6 hours on at a time. Sometimes from 8 till 3 in the morning.
3.5 for single player and 5 for the multiplayer i gave this 4 stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars Multiplayer is excellent, single player is average 30 April 2003
By Andre Mountain VINE VOICE
As a single player game, Nightfire is pretty good... its not great, but its not rubbish. When you first play you will immediately be struck by how good the graphics are, and they are better than a lot of xbox games out there - detailed bad guys and environments, nice movie clips, and Bond just looks like Bond. It FEELS like Bond, and thats an important aspect of such a game, and there are plenty of little quips and double entendres as we are treated to in the films. The controls are a bit awkward, but as soon as this started to bug me I had a nosey around the options and was pleased to find that I could alter the thumbstick controls to work like Halo. This controller setting is called the Goldeneye setting, and there are a lot of other parallels with the Goldeneye game on the N64. Difficulty levels are the same (Operative,Agent, 00 Agent) and the weapons are similar too - players of the original Goldeneye will be pleased to find Grenade Launchers, Rocket Launchers and Remote Mines amongst others.
So once I had altered the controls, it all became a lot more enjoyable, and going through the game on the Operative first, I was engrossed by the fast paced action and the satisfaction of seeing a dead bad guy drop to the floor. At times it became a little frustrating because of the lack of save points - as other reviewers have mentioned - and a mistake late on in a mission can send you right back to the start. This is most notable in an underwater level where you are in the Vanquish car, and took a lot of attempts to finally overcome.

4.0 out of 5 stars 007 Nightfire 13 Dec 2002
Yeah the story is pants and intro song is even worse - but who cares, when you can drive the lovely Aston Martin V12 Vanquish down a frozen lake, making use of all Q branch's most destructive gadgets!
Nightfire seems to be made up of all the best bits from Rare's Goldeneye and Perfect Dark ( Ronin/Laptop Gun anyone? ), but since both of EA's last attempts at the bond franchise were well ... c**p, then this was a nice surprise.
The best bond scenes, gadgets and guns and a rock solid multiplayer all made it into this game, what more could you ask for.
I haven't had a chance to play this on any other consoles yet but I have a minor point about the xbox version control scheme - the default "classic bond" is very strange, the "goldeneye" scheme is the best I have found.
Other than that it's definitely one to spend your hard earned chrimbo bonus on!

4.0 out of 5 stars 007 has come a long way, but in the right direction?
James Bond 007: Nightfire is, I would put, a good game.
The story line is quite plausable, someone takes nukes, threatens the world, James Bond must stop him, does. Read more
