Advantages: Simple to master
Disadvantages: My N64 died.
This was my favourite game on the now defunct Nintendo 64 and it was also the first game that I bought to play on with that console.
The game pretty much follows the sequences in the film with Bond trying to establish who is behind the plot to activate a secret weapons programme of the Russians for their own purposes and sees him battling with elements of the Russian underworld.
The game is a straight forward shoot them up and is based upon a series of missions during which you have to complete a number of tasks with an overall objective at the end of each. If you fail on any of the tasks then you fail that mission and the screen will flash to inform you of this, you can still continue but it s just as easy to go back to the start of the mission and try again.
What I liked about this game was the fast array of weapons that you acquire and once you have them they remain with you for future missions, you start with a silenced handgun but once you complete your first kill you start gathering the weapons from your enemies, the sniper rifle is my favourite weapon and the grenade launchers are quite good fun.
There are also weapons that you can unlock such as a golden gun, with this one you can hit your victim in any part of the body to kill them however it does make the whole thing a bit easy.
I found that there was a lot of replay value in the game and it was not the most challenging game to play but very enjoyable. Visually there is good variety in the different back grounds to the missions and you do get to drive around in a tank as well ifyou want to on one of the timed levels.
Summary: Good Bond game
