Default James Bond: Nightfire demo. Sucks.

OK, what does everyone think of this demo?

I think the graphics are OK, if a little 'soft'. The sound is OK, if a little sparse. I think the gameplay is poor. The game feels like a console FPS with nothing but the James Bond license and some cleavage to redeem itself.

In other words: the demo sucks! I was expecting a fun, diverting FPS, especially from Gearbox. I'm assuming the game is also coming out on PS2 and XBox. It's a shame they couldn't make use of anything the PC has to offer, and instead churned out a console game with an easy port. The weapons are unfun, the bad guys are boring and... unfun, and the gadgets are... well, just kinda THERE. Having said that, there IS the option to select a refresh rate and anti-aliasing level in the options menu, something I hope to see in more games in the future .

But this is still a bad, bad demo and I certainly won't waste any more of my time on this game. NOLF2 wins hands down IMHO.

PS: Please feel free to tell me I'm wrong!

This is from Gearbox? Oh God, if this 007 game sucks like people are saying it is, that doesn't bode well for Halo.

I's not a good game, but I've seen much worse. The graphics are ok, it's just the repetitive gameplay that's bothering me.

i just got finished playing the demo...damn it was hard to find the girl in the bathhouse! i'd say the graphics could have been a lot clear/more defined..seemed a little blurry,and rough around the edges..especially the cut scenes. as far as the game play..every once in awhile i would lose the sounds of my gun firing,but then it returned....yeah and going back and forth over the same area's is a pain in the ass......maybe they should have released a different level for a demo, and worked a little harder on the graphics. its gotta be slightly better than "AGENT UNDER FIRE" (the last released 007 game ) i heard that game was rated very poorly.
they better hope this one does better or it will be the end too bond games. a ninja man at the end of demo...hmmm reminds me of another game???? ninja's/swords.....nolf2 wanna be's??...guess ill go back to playing where i left off in nolf2(chapter 10)............maybe unreal 2 demo will be out soon and give us something to really be impressed with.

you don't get much but you do get 20mb. not only that you can browse fileshack with no advertisements at all. you get a shackmail e-mail address..i don't use it though, plus you don't gotta wait an hour in line for a demo. pretty good for $5 bucks.

Even though its heavily modified, you can only do so much with the Halflife engine. Someone has to tell gearbox this.
