This game is just awesome. 2nd best game (tied with EoN) after GE007 on the N64. Some levels are just too cool. Like the one where you have to go into Q's appartment, and he is hiding in the shower.....

A lot of great gadgets, fun action, exciting levels... I always have a blast when replaying the game ! all in all a wonderful game !

Any fans of 'Agent Under Fire' on MI6Community ??

    Big fan right here. I've actually gone back to the old XBOX recently and played EON from the beginning to end. Agent Under Fire will be next for me- in fact I just recently picked it up complete with book and box from an online store (I used to own it as a kid on Game Cube).

    It was a decent game and generic Bond looked like a cross between Lazenby, Dalton & Brosnan. It did have a good trio of villains: Malprave, Bloch and The Jackal (whom has alway reminded me of Gillian Anderson). My favourite missions were:

    - Dangerous Pursuit
    - Bad Diplomacy
    - Night Of The Jakal

    However, it's doomed to sit in the shadow of the vastly superior Nightfire.

    Remember back when NightFire was still in production, and it looked as if that game would have the 'generic Bond' too? I remember seeing stills in Electronic Gaming Monthly (wow that takes me back....)
    I think it wasn't until the last minute that they were able to replace him with Brosnan.

    It would've been better if it had Brosnans likeness. I thought Nightfire was better but I do like this game, especially the embassy attack level and the level in the underwater base.

    Another good feature was the multiplayer, which had Jetpacks... JETPACKS!!!

    I do often go back to playing AUF. For some reason, only the first level, and only until the part where Bond goes "Hmm Fireworks". I do however hate the level "Fire and Water".

    lol his voice is pretty funny in this game
    'TURN-LEFT-HERE-ZOE'

    and 'Sorry about that Q-- I was................delayed' (lol how was that even a joke???)


    However when he sees those identical twins and they tell him to admire the view, they walk away and Bond looks directly at their spandex-clad-asses and mutters 'I already am'- lol OK that was legitimately funny!

    Throughout AUF Bond was on innuendo overload. He walks in on Malprave bending over, and like the gentleman he is, says nothing.

    And how could I forget:

    "Nice Fawl."

    That game sure is full of innuendo! It may not look or sound anything like him, but could Agent Under Fire be the Roger Moore game we've always wanted?? ;)

    I love the villian who laughs all the time (the oil platform) and the car chases. But it feels much older than NF, despite the fact that only one year separated them.

    I'm one, and you've pretty much summed up my views of the game there. That and the nostalgia factor I have when playing it.

    However, a short while back browsing YouTube, I remember seeing promo footage of John Cleese's Q in the game along with Bond in a tux during the Jackal mission. Makes me remember feeling out of place back then playing a Bond game without Bond wearing one.
  • I like the game, I love how you can switch the DB5 for the Lotus, 'cause I really like the Lotus.

    Also, sometimes, out of nowhere, I get the Forbidden Depths background music stuck in my head, and I can't get it out :)

    I do wish the game gave you the choice of vehicles, instead of "use one Golden reward, use them all".

    It's okay, but Nightfire trumped it a few short months later. :-bd

    Anyway, I do like some of the levels on AUF, like Dangerous Pursuit, Cold Reception, Streets of Bucharest, Poseidon, the one where you battle Carla the Jackal at the Embassey, the one on the aircraft carrier, and the last level. The vehicle levels are fascinating, AUF easily has one of the best driving systems in any Bond game. As for the multiplayer, I hate it. It's just not good at all. The player's hands aren't even shown holding the gun, the bots perform completely un-realistic moves, just a waste of time really. Also, no classic bots? Really?

    Agent Under Fire is the one game I keep coming back to, it has a cool story, great music and pure fun humor. It would make a great Roger Moore bond film.

    It would make a good Brosnan film as well (and his silhouete is on the cover), especially since it deals with cloning.

    never played it, but is a pity that it don't have a Song theme like Nightfire.

    No, but, honestly... how good would an AUF song really have been?
  • Posts: 4,807
    Wasn't the NightFire song extremely short if I remember right? (but good)

    There's also a full version. It's called "Nearly Civilized", and I can't figure out what the hell it has to do with the game.

    Yeah, but there's also a full version. It's the same with the Everything or Nothing song, I think they shortened them for the game.

    I think they just chose a random song and made the singer whisper Nightfire at the end.

    They shorten them for the films now, as well. GE-AWTD have all been shortened.

    I'll say this. I prefer Nightfire and EoN but AUF made me a Bond fan. I remember playing it a friends house and wondering what it was and we started watching the films soon after. The game isn't perfect but it's filled with great moments and fun gameplay. And it paved the way for EoN because it was the same developers while Eurocom did Nightfire.

    AVTAK, TLD, and LTK were all shortened also.

    I didn't know about those three. I have the CD that has all the Bond themes (plus I downloaded DAD, NC, EON, YKMN, AWTD, WNLY, GE2010 and ITIA), and those all sounded the same to me.

    Yeah, I've got all the Bond themes on my MP3 Player up through The World is not Enough, minus You Only Live Twice because I absolutely hate that theme. By the way, what is WNLY?

    Does anyone else think that Adrian Malprave sounds and looks like Elizabeth Hurley?
  • edited April 2012 Posts: 1,082
    I´m planning to start playing this again, thanks to this thread. I think I got stuck last time on the tank-level. I´ve tried to win the Lotus award, that would be my dream. But it´s awesome to be able to drive Connery´s car (AM DB5), Moore´s TSWLM car (Lotus Espirit) and Brosnan´s TWINE car (BMW Z8) in the same game.

    I'm so disappointed in myself-- when I was a kid and had this on the Game Cube, I had unlocked the Lotus (and tons of other stuff). Now I'm playing it brand new on the XBOX and for the life of me I can't earn it again!!! It has been years though- I'm sure I'll get it eventually.
    Oh well, at least I beat EON yesterday. I'm on a retro Bond marathon on the XBOX if you can't tell ;)
