Fun Factor:★★★☆☆ 

007: Agent Under Fire is a good game for the PS2. This game is the first Bond game for PS2 and this game uses the Quake III engine. There 3 problems with this game. #1 is Bond himself, #2 is the controls, and #3 is the fact of the sound of the game.

The first problem was Bond isn’t like the other ones from the movies. This one looks like he came out of one the Superman and he doesn’t sound like Bond himself. When you play the game, he looks Superman without his powers. I don’t know this voice actor, but he does did a okay job for Bond. Problem #2 is the controls run like the Bond game from the N64. I don’t know why EA had to put old controls on this game. For N64 yes, but for PS2, no. You can change the controls in this game. I had found the controls that look like those from Halo. So, I used it instead, and it helped. Now for problem #3. Problem #3 is the fact if you do something cool, you get to hear the theme song over and over again. It was really annoying. I didn’t turn it off, but you deal with it.

So far the game is a good game. The story about this game is that, James Bond has to shut down clone factory and save the world from destruction, with that theme from every James Bond movie. I know it sounds like it came out of Star Wars because I said “clone”. Well, it isn’t. If it did, Bond would use light saber and using the Force instead using tools from Q.

I would use one of Q’s cars. If I had one of those, I would use auto drive and use it to go to Tokyo, if it can fly. The graphics do look like from Jedi Knight II. This game and JK2 used the same engine. That is why the graphics almost look the same. This game was one of EA’s good games until they went corporate, stealing money from gamers, and putting Securerom on PC games, which we don’t want. If you want a EA game, get the older game or the ones done by Bioware. This game will take you about 10 hours if you don’t die so many times like I did. It been a while since I played a FPS game. I don’t know at the time that is was the FPS game that I played.

This game doesn’t have a ending. When I was playing the last level, I was expecting an ending. You would more fun on multiplayer instead of single player. Multiplayer has no online, but you have more fun with 3 friends. I would say rent but, you can’t find this game because this game was only on PS2. You can borrow it from a friend instead, if your friend has it. This game will be added it the PS2 collection because the game was a good game and a good EA game as well.
