Bond is Back in The World Is Not Enough. Based on the film by the same name, This game has 11 missions, 5 main villians, 5 main allies, new and familiar Bond gadgets, including the finger-print scanner, cell-phone stunner, and grapple-hook watch. You also get new and old weapons. Your mission starts in Bilbao, Spain but its not long before Bonds on the trail of an international terrorist who feels no pain. I would recommend this game to anyone who has played the other 007 games or whatched the movie.
With the release of the Bond movie ‘The World Is Not Enough’ it was fairly obvious to me that a game would follow, and here it is. Although this game is very well detailed in the levels and variety of weapons and gadgets, it is a very short game, with only 10 levels you will find that if you have a spare hour or two you can finish it on the easy setting. Luckily I saw that there were only 10 levels and went for the harder setting. The shortness is made up though by the weapons, the detail of the levels and the ease of navigation. -~-~The Story~-~- An MI6 agent has been murdered and a classifies report from the Russian Atomic Energy Department has been taken from his body. An old friend, Sir Robert King, accidentally purchased this stolen document, believing it to contain information about terrorists who attacked his pipeline in Kazakhstan. The mission you are to carry out, as Bond is to retrieve Sir Roberts Money and find out who killed the agent. Basically the game follows the storyline of the movie, as you complete each mission an appropriate excerpt of the movie is shown. -~-~Difficulty~-~- You are able to choose from two difficulty settings either, Agent: This setting is easier, and is recommended for people that have never played Bond games (sham on you) or 007: this setting involves more puzzles more baddies and generally more, this is recommended to the more experienced Bond, this setting also helps to make the game longer. -~-~Navigation~-~- Bond is really easy…to move around that is. The controls for moving and selecting weapons are really easy to use and remember, EA games really know how to make the navigation on a game really easy to use. The menus are also very simple and it is easy to change setting etc. -~-~Weapons/Gadgets~-~- Just like the real Bond this game lets you choose from the most extensive range of weapons and gadgets. Some of the most common weapons
are: Wolfram P2K: this is bonds standard issue pistol. It is equipped with s silencer. AR36 Sniper Rifle: This weapon is very accurate, but can be very slow to reload. Belgique PS100: This is a high-powered automatic weapon, but has limited accuracy. Meyer TMP: This is a small machine gun with a high rate of fire. Some of the gadgets are: Cell Phone Stunner: This is used to shock the enemy into submission without causing major damage. Night Vision Goggles: They allow you to see in the dark. VLF Disruptor: Disguised as an ordinary fountain pen,` this device is used to disrupt electrical fields. Credit Card Lock Pick: A lock pick disguised as a credit card. Video Camera Rocket Launcher: My personal favourite it is a powerful guided weapon that shoots rockets, it is cleverly designed as a Video Camera. Some of these gadgets are ingenious, and very fun to play around with. There is an excellent selection for each mission. -~-~Graphics ~-~- Pervious Bond games’ graphics haven’t been up to scratch, but with this game, they have been improved enormously, and each level is detailed so well it almost looks real. A new feature is that when you encounter an enemy, there facial expression changes from normal to alert, it is quite good to watch. I cost me around $30 which I think is about 22 pounds (thanks mdstone), this is a good price for what you get. This is a very good game and can be enjoyable at first but after you finish it there are little extra features available to make the game last longer. I believe that EA games focused too much on the weapons and gadgets and not enough on the length of the levels. They also should have integrated a multiplayer feature, this would have added to the shelf life of the product. To sum up I would say only purchase this game if you are very bad at these sort of games, but if you’re like me and experienced then save your money for
This game is very entertaining for about an hour. I played it on the hardest setting and was not challenged at all; all you need is a quick mind and a quick draw. Although it was very easy, the game play, graphics and sounds were very good. The levels were very big and very detailed and the graphics were excellent. The enemies looked more rounded not square like characters in Tomb Raider Games. The people look really cool when they die. Some of the weapons include Wolfram P2K (Bonds favourite pistol), Sniper Rifle and even if you don’t have a weapon on hand you can punch them and although it is hard to kill someone with a punch Bond still finds a way. Being Bond, James Bond you have access to a whole lot of cool gadgets like Cell Phone Stunner, Grappling Hook Watch, Pen Explosive, Video Camera Rocket Launcher (To Catch all those happy moments). The music is mainly just the James Bond theme but I just can’t get enough of that song. This was a detailed but easy game with few levels but overall I just can’t give a bad rating to a James Bond Movie. I would recommend it to someone with little skill. *If you have any comments please post them and help make my opinions better*
I bought this game for the Playstation hoping it would be as good as Goldeneye and was left disappointed. This is the second James Bond game to be made and just doesn't cut the mustard on the Playstation. Don't get me wrong, it is not a bad game, just the buyer expects more after sampling Goldeneye. One of the first drawbacks of the game is that it is one player only with no multiplayer mode which makes Goldeneye so good. The player is restricted to playing alone to complete missions which can get boring after a while as there are games available with many more features. Due to being on CD for the Playstation there can be long waits while missions load, but one good point of the game is the video clips from the film and the speaking instructions for the missions which add to the game. The missions themselves are alright with a tiered difficulty system. There is a good range of guns and gadgets to choose from, including a tazer mobile phone. The graphics are good and the controls are easy to get used to. Overall I feel that there is nothing that hasn't been seen before in other games and that there are better shoot 'em ups around for the Playstation such as Metal Gear Solid and Syphon Filter.

Being a big fan of Goldeneye on the N64, and not really wanting to buy one, I had to settle for this game on the Playstation. Coming from EA, the team behind all those FIFA games, you'd expect something suitably slick, and you wouldn't be far wrong. The first thing you notice when you put the disc in your Playstation is just how nicely presented the game actually is - there is the standard James Bond music, as well as the moving circles, Bond walking across, shooting and the screen filling will blood. It's a nice touch, which marks it as undoubtedly Bond from the start. As a game it's really easy to get into - the menu allows you to start a new game, continue a previous game, load or save to the memory card, or view movies. I like the option of viewing movies, you can only view the movie once you have accessed the relevant level in the game, but once you have, you can watch the relevant video sequence as often as you like. I mentioned before the great presentation, and this continues throughout the game. Before each mission, you are presented with rundowns from M, who details the objectives of the mission, R, who tells you which gadgets you have available for the mission, and from Moneypenny, who gives you a double entendre to send you on your way. All these briefs are read by the original actors from the film. Before you begin each mission you are also shown a video of the sequence the level relates to in the actual film. These are good pieces, often at least a minute long, and of high quality. Should you be successful in completing your mission, you will also be presented with a video sequence detailing the aftermath of the level, which usually sets you up for the next level. You can only save games at the end of each level, which shouldn't present too much difficulty. The game is a first-person shoot em up in the style of Quake and Doom. Basically, it's you against the world here. Yes, it's not very
realistic, but haven't you seen those Bond films? The guy is amazing - thirty years against all those bad guys and not a scratch on him. So this should be wee buns. As ever, presentation is nothing without gameplay. The game has plenty of scope, it starts off relatively gently, and starts to become gradually harder as you progress through the levels, where you have to develop a genuine sense of skill and stealth, and running around attempting to kill everyone in sight will see you in your grave very quickly indeed. The missions are quite varies, it isn't just a race through from point A to point B, killing everyone on the way, most missions have objectives - following an assassin or protecting someone. If you don't keep up with your prey, or you fail as a guard, that?s it, mission failed. There are only 11 stages in the game, but there are two different levels of play - agent and 007, both with varying degrees of difficulty, adding some extra challenge to the game. There are also a number of hidden extras in the game, which can be accessed if you complete the missions particularly speedily. These range from things like invincibility mode to hidden areas. Controlling James is a doddle - the circle button opens doors or reloads your current weapon, the cross fires your current weapon and the triangle and square cycles through your inventory. It's worth noting that it is worthwhile accessing your inventory at the start of each level to see exactly what you have in your armoury. Not everything is activated at the start of the level, and you can toggle items on and off, so as you use an item, you can switch it off and you won?t encounter it as you scroll through your items. This is particularly useful when in a packed area with plenty of people shooting at you, when you just want to change weapons quickly and all the keys and other gadgets aren?t much use to you. You can even disable unarmed so that you will always have something in yo
ur hands as you wander around the level. There is a great range of weapons to be had - raging from pistol to sniper rifle, to shotgun, to grenade launcher. Obviously each weapon is effective best in different situations - for instance, the pistol is equipped with a silencer to prevent you from attracting attention to yourself, and the sniper rifle is best for picking off targets from great distance, before they see you and begin firing at you. Pressing R1 with any weapon allows you to stand still and aim your weapon by using the directional pad or analogue stick. This is useful when you're standing around the corner and you know you're about to come across many heavily armed guards, allowing you to pick a few off before you run in. The only irritating thing is that is you have to reload your weapon whilst in this mode, it resets your crosshairs back to the centre of the screen and you have to start aiming all over again. You can either reload your gun in a quiet moment by pressing the circle button, or it will automatically reload when it runs out. I recommend allows reloading whenever possible as it takes a few seconds to reload, which leaves you vunerable to attack whilst fighting, James picks up more weapons and ammo as he walks around the area, sometimes hidden around the area, or in crates, which you can blow up by shooting them, or from dead guards. There is no way to recharge your health in this game, although you can pick up body armour as you walk around the area, which will absorb some of the pain for you. You do, however, begin each level with a fresh energy bar. Graphically, the game is excellent, much better than Goldeneye on the N64. Each level is superbly detailed, and there is no pop up which can be annoying in games. The only drawback is that all the guards and bad guys in any level look the same; up close they all have the same face. Only a minor flaw I know, but these small things really make a game. The whole ga
mes moves quickly and the characters move smoothly and realistically. The artificial intelligence of the enemies is quite good, although they are prone to get stuck trying to manoeuvre out of difficult places. Shoot one and they'll all turn round and start to shoot at you, and set off any alarm and you?ll soon be under fire as well. I haven't seen the film itself, but to me it seems like a wonderful tie-in. It utilises the situations and the characters well, and the characters in the game have a real likeness to their real-life counterparts. The action is varied too - it is up to you to decide whether to go in guns blazing, or try the more quiet, stealthy approach. At the end of each level you complete, you are giving a score and rating, based on your speed, how many enemies you killed, and the accuracy of your shooting. Difficulty wise, it could have been a harder challenge. There are only 11 stages, like I said before, and the stages aren't particularly long. This means it is easy for you to remember exactly where the enemies occur, and after a few attempts at each level, you can quickly pick them off, know where all the power-ups occur and make quick progress. It shouldn't take the hardened gamer more than three or four attempts to make it through a level. Added to the fact that any items in the level that you can use are highlighted in red, it makes puzzle solving a bit easy as it draws your attention to otherwise insignificant objects and takes any real challenge away from you. Saying that, I really enjoyed playing it, it is true to the spirit of Bond and it is well presented. However, the active life isn't going to be very long, a few days hard playing at most. The challenge of finding the hidden extras isn't really enough to keep me coming back for more. To me it is more complete in single player mode than Goldeneye. One of Goldeneye's major selling points was its multiplayer capabilities. The World Is N
ot Enough doesn't provide support for two-player mode, which is an absolute sin. It would be great fun in two player mode and would keep me coming back for more, but the developers decided, in their infinite wisdom, to leave it out, leaving a good game which is a bit on the easy side and very short. Had we had longer levels, more of them and a two-player mode, it would have been a Playstation classic. It is a good game, but for the life on the game, it might be better waiting until it comes out as a Platinum title, or renting or borrowing it instead. I had to give it three stars on account of it being just a bit too short and easy. ZD NET Game Guide (walkthrough and strategy guide) http://gameguides.gamespot.com/guides/twine_ps/
Ok I am not going to start this review with the normal "The name's Bond.....James Bond " because that is really annoying. Anyway, the third Bond movie to be made into a computer game (previous ones being Goldeneye and Tommorrow Never Dies") The World is Not Enough is all in all a pretty solid, well rounded game which tries to stick to the soryline of the film closely but not so close as to destroy the gameplay. There are many things that impressed me when I first played this game. The first thing was the graphics. I did not quite expect the graphics to be as good as they were as Tommorrow Never Dies dissappointed me in that area. The enemies are quite good and the characters from the film a portrayed very well in visual likeness and their sound as well. There are about 12 levels to work your way through during the course of the game with each one being reasonably challenging so to keep you addicted but not too difficult to make you fed up with it. At the start and end of each level there is a film extract that is used to thicken the plot and move the game along which it does very successfully. The sound is ok but there is nothing to shout about particularly, except for the voices of the characters whcih, as I have already said, impressed me very much. There are also briefings before each mission from "M" "R" and Moneypenny. This too moves the game along nicely and makes you get into i even more. However this game is not all good and I felt that it lacked a few things to make it the complete game. The first thing is a 2 player mode (like Goldeneye on the N64)and the second is the choice of weapons. Without the 2 player mode it means that once you've completed the game on each of the difficulties there is no point in playing it (except to gain the cheats). I feel that if there was a 2 player mode more people would play it for longer. The choice of weapons is not
that bad but I thought that there could have been a few more (or maybe I am just being picky now). There are not a great deal of different gadgets but enough to keep you interested and to give a bit of variety. However I am not taking anything away from this game that I feel is the closest the Playstation has come to matching Goldeneye on the N64. If you like the film then I am sure you wil love the game as well. I am sure you will enjoy this game if you take the trouble to try it and it is pretty cheap as well as it has been out for quite a while. If you like this why not try: Goldeneye N64 The World is not Enough (on video and DVD)
General/Summary: This game is actually better than I expecte dit would be.It does have flaws such as some poor background textures and choppy animation, but it is overall a pretty fun game. Gameplay: It's goldeneye for ps.There's a decent supply of really cool looking guns, and plenty of bad guys to blast.There is only one problem, it's too short.Plus, after you beat it, there really isn't that much you'll want to go back and do again, but it is pretty fun while it lasts.This is another sollid FPS title for playstation, but if you're expecting the depth of Moh 1 and 2 you'll be very dissapointed. Graphics: The graphics in instances can actually be pretty impressive.However, some of the character models could have used a lot of work, and the background are usually pretty blah blah.Another thing i don't understand, ok im used to people lips not moving in videogames, but then why give them a CLOSE UP to make this glitch look even worse?I cant grasp why they didnt fix this.the level design can look good and pretty much everything looks good from a distcance, also the guns are some of the coolest i have ever seen in a game. Sound: The gunshot sounds are very cool, and the voice acting isnt to shabby either.The peoples screams are ok but can become repetetive after a while.I'd reccomend this game to someone who is looking for a good shooter, ujust dont expect the world of it.(No pun intended)
The World is not enough is the playstation's sequel to Tommorrow Never Dies. The game revolves around James Bond, a British secret agent working for MI6, codename 007. He has a licence to kill and frequently does. This much everybody knows. This game is based upon the film which was a big box office hit and tries to capitalise on the success. The basic plot of the game: an MI6 agent has been murdered and a classified report from the Russian Atomic Energy Department has been taken from his body. Sir Robert King accidently purchased this stolen document, believing it to contain information about terrorists who continually attacked his pipeline in Kazakhstan. A Swiss banker, a middle man in this affair, has offered to return Sir Roberts money. The game starts with you going to him to discover who killed the agent and collect the money. This is how it starts of but nothing in the world of James Bond ever goes simply as this. When Bond goes to collect the money Lachaise the banker is murdered just as he is about to tell Bond who the killer was. Bond then escapes in duly dramatic fashion to continue the game. Bond therefore has to find out this information via other means. This game is good but nothing special. The range of weapons is OK but not extensive enough. There is the Wolfram P2k pistol (with a sliencer), AR36 Sniper Rifle with special sight, Belgique PS100 automatic weaoin, Meyer TMp machine gun plus a few other guns picked up along the way. There are some gadgets as well: Cell Phone Stunner (mobile phone that electrocutes enemies), Grappling Hook Watch, Night Vision Goglles, Fingerprint Scanner, Credit Card Lockpick, Telephone Bug, Micro Camera, Video Camera Rocket Launcher, Explosive Pen. The game is a little too easy even in the harder mode; 007. This is largely due to the fact that the enemies intelligence is very low and it is incredibly hard to die. An exapmle of the enemy's stupidity is when they see you and run to the alarm, th
ey do not press it. This is infurating as it makes it too easy and there is no point buying the game. The other negative point of the game: you cannot save in game. Overall this game is good but not different enough from Tomorrow Never Dies.
I bought the World Is Not Enough during christmas and...I was disappointed. I didn't actually fo through the whole game. I started n the first level and then decided not to play it, because, to put it frank, it wasn't very good at all!! There are some cut scenes in ths game, which are pretty impressive. They are taken from the film itself and look just like a DVD film. You are James Bond himself throughout the whole game and you must kill the baddies and complete your missions to go onto the next level. There are many gadgets and guns but you can only use two weapons on each level, which is disappointing as there are lots of weapons in the game. The graphics are average but you can find better on games even older than this on other platforms, such as Goldeneye on the N64. The gameplay was also average-there was nothing special about it all. It is quite similar to Tomorrow Never Dies on the PlayStation except the levels are different. I returned the game the next day and got my money back. If you want a decent shoot em up/tactical game, get a game like Metal Gear Solid on the PlayStation or Goldeneye on the N64. Another downside is that there is no multiplayer so you can't have a 4 player mash with your mates!!
