This new game for the PS2, Xbox, and Gamecube rocks!!!
It has many similarities to Emperor's tomb, including the graphics, controls, and sound effects. I think it's even better than Goldeneye!!! When I first played it, I thought that maybe EA got the idea to do Bond in 3rd person from ET, and I may be right. WOW

Well, someone was allowed to have 1 (one) Bond thread in the Films forum, Shipwreck may be merciful and let them have 1 thread in the Games forum.

But, anyway, I also have that Game.
I got an Xbox just for that game. I have never had a console, only Windows PC, but, they didn't come out with Everything or Nothing for PC, so, I got a Xbox for that reason.
I had gotten Nightfire for PC, and, it was fairly well done, and the multiplayer was, in my opinion, pretty good on Nightfire.
But, 00Kevin said Goldeneye is good. Do they have that for Xbox?
What other Bond games do they have for Xbox, and what is your order of best to worst?

Everything or Nothing is similar to Emperor's Tomb.
It has an auto-aim. You can hug corners while preparing to shoot. But, there is no jumping in EoN, very different from ET.

Everything or Nothing better than Goldeneye? Goldeneye is a classic now, you can't beat Rareware's perfection!

Oh well... I'll have to play it soon.

From the previews and commercials I've seen, Everything or Nothing has raised the bar on video games. Man that game just looks cool! If there is another Indiana Jones game they should take a hint from the makers of 007 and try to get actors from the Indy films to participate and treat the game like an actual movie.

No, he's somthing else altogether. I hate the Bond vs. Indy argument so I'll simply say: I like them evenly. And thats no lie.

      Bond vs. Indy? Ask Sean Connery which one he likes better...

the only bad thing bout everything or nothing is the hand to hand combat. It is kind of jerky and isn't anything compared to emperors tombs' hand to hand combat.

This is only an opinion

I love this game! One of my all time favorites

While the hand to hand isn't as good as ET's, the vehicles and even the third person gun fights make up for it. It's an awesome Bond story and has awesome cinematics. This should have been the movie rather than Die Another Day!

With all that said I must admit I never beat it. I'm stuck on the level where you have to kill Jaws on that elevator. That blasted flamethrower gets me every time right around the time I get his health 3/4 down

as the local bond expert, and local bond games expert, I can say that EoN is not as good as goldeneye. The Game was great....but it was merely the extras that made it great...bringing on the stars, an actual bond writer, the composer of '24'..references, homages....but looking past all of that (and the things that were effected by them) the game is merely an OK game

and I have to say that the multiplayer was the worst I have ever played It shocks me that EA didn't concentrate on the multiplayer more.....Goldeneye is one of the greatest games ever and the multiplayer is better then the 1P game (slightly, that's argueable) the extras are the best part of the game, but that's about it....a weak multiplayer kills this one in my mind

and I agree that the IJ:ET melee combat was much better

IMO, Gamespot got it right when they said EoN is the "best Bond game yet". Yes, Goldeneye was a better game, but it certainly wasn't very much like James Bond. If you're looking for Goldeneye action, wait for Goldeneye 2 (as I am eagerly awaiting), which looks to be one of the most original Bond games yet. (considering you play a Bond villain!)

Agreed. Running around non-stop shooting things is not James Bond.... You were forced to take a different approach in EoN (well, no you weren't, it just made things a helluva lot harder if you didn't use stealth in some areas).

Goldeneye's MP is better in terms of free for all, but Co-Op in EoN is mighty cool. I don't think it's for XBOX Live, sadly. Still, playing split screen with a friend is still neat.

Yeah, I completed it in one day as well on Agent difficulty..I have to say that "Everything or Nothing" (the last level) was VERY tough though... I think I read somewhere there are like 80 guys in the large warehouse room. Better than some games I've played, where the last level is pathetically easy. (*cough*Halo*cough*)

A lot of the missions took me a few go's.. I remember the free falling mission being very difficult at first for some reason it took me loads of attempts.. it's not as difficult now when i reply em though...
Thats one of my favourite missions though.. very original and VERY bond... love the motorbike levels aswell..
