James Bond 007: NightFire

Follow 19

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 bolted onto a cracking multi-player mode.

      It was actually a multiconsole game, it was also on GC and XBOX, but yes a PC port of the original would've been better because of mods and custom maps.

        I doubt they can port the driving section, since that as made in an entirely different engine.

        The driving parts were in fact based on the NFS engine around the time.

    The pc version of this game should have been made with the ID Tech 3 engine just like all the other bond games around the time, except the console version of nightfire which didn't use the id tech 3 engine nor the GoldSource engine like the pc version did as far as I know.

      Bro, the PS2 version used Quake III engine, it was the PC version that used the GoldSrc engine.

        I did say the PC used Goldsource, but the point I'm making is that the console version didn't used the ID Tech 3 engine nor the GoldSource engine, it seemed too different from the ID Tech 3 engine.
