OXM UK: Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford has revealed that the company's 007 shooter, 2002's James Bond 007: Nightfire, nearly had the shooting elements removed by guardians of the Bond licence.
What? That would've been so weird. Really glad they didn't, my friends and I used to play this a lot a few years back. Nightfire is actually in 2nd place (behind Goldeneye 64) on my top Bond games list. :P
must have sold her shares since, or come to her senses, as the Daniel Craig movies have ramped up the violence.
how can you not have shooting in a bond game?
Just wait. The next Bond game is rumored to be a driving title. It's utterly ridiculous that there isn't a dev team that can get it right so they have to resort ot a non shooting centered titled. One more reason to give it to Naughty Dog.
I even liked Night Fire I like grahpic and evrything else. Its looks like original... But new game is like Call of Duty...
I honestly think Nightfire was awesome! Agent Under Fire is my favorite though...even above Goldeneye. The multi-player on AUF was INCREDIBLE!
Nightfall was epic. I used to play this for GC all the time.
Sure about that? Cause it's called Nightfire...
This was the only decent Bond game besides Goldeneye in my opinion. Gearbox is an amazing developer. Their Windows port of Halo was excellent, their Half-Life expansions were great, Tony Hawk 3 was the best of the series, Borderlands is awesome. I can't wait for their Aliens game next year.
Yes that was Third-Person and not First-Person, but damn with all the awesome action sequences and gadgets the player had access to in that game, it proved that FPS was not necessarily the only format that Bond games could work and succeed with.
This is the only bond game I've played through, and I thought it was pretty damn good. I tried the demos for the other PS2 ones and didn't like them.
Loved this game. I had to beat it on all the difficulties and unlock everything before I was finished with it. Even then, the multiplayer was FUN! Ramming remote-controlled choppers into people never got tiring!
Yeah this game was good, especially the Multiplayer, an element which is usually great in the Bond franchise (if you remember Goldeneye)
I often wonder how these idiotic people become so successful in the first place.
and Everything or Nothing are still sat under my ps3, i give them a run out every now and then especially after playing that mess that was Quantum of Solace. Which reminds me that i must trade that in, dont think i will get much for it, i wouldn't give the steam off my $h!t for that piece of crap.
Wow, I remember that game. I played it so much,
Goldeneye and World is Not Enough are my favorites. I might even like WiNE a bit more than Goldeneye, though I can't remember enough about the game to make a thorough comparison.
Although I never finished this game on the GC, it was better than Quantum of Solice
Why would Gearbox be even commenting on this? All they did was the really awful PC port of Nightfire.
