An extraordinary Bond experience
Easily the greatest Bond game next to Goldeneye (N64), Everything or Nothing has it all: A Hollywood cast that rivals many big-budget movies, excellent graphics, and refined gameplay/controls. The creators at EA certainly put forth an outstanding effort. The game is in third person, something new to the Bond franchise. Although new, the system works very well. The lock-on aiming system is crucial and functions well. The wall cover system is also a great gameplay mechanic and is one you'll find very useful in almost every level. The levels are diverse and challenging. Even on operative, certain levels will take more than one try to complete. There are a substantial amount of driving levels as well. Bond's vehicles include two luxury cars and a motorcycle. There's even a level where you fly a helicopter. On top of the excellent gameplay and level variation, Everything or Nothing feels like a movie almost as much as a game. There are many cut scenes to help tell the story with great voice acting and beautiful visuals. As a movie, it ranks above at least two of Pierce Brosnan's Bond outings (in the author's opinion). Bond fans aren't the only ones that can appreciate this game. The production value is near insane. The gameplay is top-notch. I finished certain levels feeling breathless. The reasons go on and on. If you're a self-respecting gamer, buy this game if you can find it.
