Following a discussion with @ClarkDevlin, I developed a craving to revisit some of my favourite games of the PS2 era. To be honest, it had been so long since I used my PS2, that I didn't know if it still worked. I hit the power button, and the ol' girl whirred into life. The first game that I wanted to revisit was the last great Bond game, Everything Or Nothing. I had expected the game to look as rough as a badgers you know what. But it has aged really well for a game that is a surprising 12 year old (where'd the time go?). The gameplay was just as smooth, and took no time at all the get reacquainted with. How could it have gone all so wrong for Bond games. From this, to 007 Legends, via a switch in developer.
You know where your next step should lead to? Try playing those games on PC with a PS2 Emulator and enhance the textures and graphics... You'll be left in an awe with how detailed the character models are... Especially Everything or Nothing.
I wish that game was popular enough to get a remaster, but all anyone remembers is the PS3/Xbox 360 version of QoS that was garbage in comparison.
I most definitely agree that the PS3/XB360/PC/Wii version was garbage. Run and gun. Nothing else. And pretty much one way corridor.
The only other game to match it since is Blood Stone, and we got cheated out of a sequel for that too, the cliffhanger be damned. Such a shame too.
And agreed with @Agent007391. The PS2 was the golden age of the Bond games.
@ClarkDevlin Craig looks a bit concerned about something all the time in QoS PS2, doesn't he?
And yes, he does look concerned. :D
@ClarkDevlin, can we see some FRWL emulated?
And gearing up for Mafia III, I started to replay the last one a couple of days ago. I can see they're doing something different with the next one.
Mafia and Mafia 2 are like good well made genre movies. Once Upon a time in America / The Godfather and The Goodfellas.
@ClarkDevlin Hmm...I wonder if there's an issue with my PS2. Whenever I play Agent Under Fire, I'm very lucky if it decides to load the level with the BMW Z8. Most of the time it just freezes. Anybody else had this?
Weird. It's actually not the rail shooting level that's the problem though. It's the level right after when you're chasing after the truck with the vials, and you stop it with an EMP.
I just had my inner Number Two let out to Dr. Evil. :))
I'm sure with a bit of practice I could get good again. Between that, NightFire, EON & even Bloodstone, we're far overdue for a stand-alone Bond game! You're right @ClarkDevlin, this was a great time!
