    Is anyone surprised? Bond...

    Bond : Agent Under Fire scores a weak 7.9 at IGN:

    http://ps2.ign.com/reviews/15723.html

    "Agent Under Fire is by far EA's best effort yet with its pricey Bond license, as it makes its debut on PlayStation 2. Given that the first three titles were utterly forgettable, saying that it's best yet must be kept in context. The single-player game leaves much to be desired as a first-person shooter. It's simplistic and overly explained, and it displays much of the levels design that was swell about three or four years ago, you know, exploding barrels, bullet holes in the walls, the occasional secret door, etc. It does nothing to move the genre forward, and in most cases, it's not as sophisticated as Goldeneye was four years ago."

    • Funny, a friend of mine was just saying this morning how much of a ripoff he thought the EQ expansion was. He was amazed it too 3 CD's! (he closed his account and returned it I think).

      To each his/her own!

    • I haven't played many other online games, but the new expansion that Everquest has put out has IMHO taken gaming to the extreme. For all of you who haven't seen it, check out the system requirements:http://everquest.station.sony.com/support/system_requirements.jsp

      For an idea of the new graphics this expansion is upgrading to, check this out:http://eq.castersrealm.com/screenshots2/default.asp?category=4

      I've seen SIMS, UO, DAoC, Star Wars (never played any of them however) and I've never seen anything as detailed as this... (PS2 quality visuals on a PC)
      With the system requirements, Sony has taken a risk on losing clientelle, however, the graphics themselves have pulled in more new clients in the past few months with all the hype than Ruins of Kunark or Scars of Velius expansions combined. In my admittedly limited experience, this is the most advanced (visually at least, content is always debatable) game I've ever seen for a PC...
      Any thoughts?
      *cringes waiting for the flamage* :)

    • If you're boyfriend ever gets tired of living with an overachiever, give me a call.

    • *** Aye, I am addicted to an online game, but it's a hell of alot better than any other addiction you hear about every day. ***

      That's true!!! IMO escapism taken to an extreme can be a problem but you're right it's a lot safer and cheaper than most other addictions! Have fun and keep enjoying life.

    • Ah, well there I should have specified.. I am not married, so I guess the definition of a spouse doesn't apply. Let's say "significant other" to be grammatically correct. :) As far as living in the desert, I couldn't imagine a better place to live. We don't deal with hurricanes/snow/tornadoes/earthquakes/floods or any other natural disasters found in most the other states. We have the sun to tan in and swim in, and the cooler (snow) regions are just an hour away. We may not have beaches, but that's about all we're missing. And believe it or not, we don't even live in pueblos, and some of us actually have that stuff called grass in our yards :P Aye, I am addicted to an online game, but it's a hell of alot better than any other addiction you hear about every day.. Don't knock it till ya try it.

    • *** I'm not sure what your definition of life is, but I am quite content with where I stand at this time. ***

      Your definition of a good life being a married 20 year old who's living in the desert and is addicted to an online game. OK, to each their own I guess :-)

    • Oops, double post, sorry about that :)

      Ok, for starters, I am female, so "dude" is incorrect. One of the accounts I support is my spouses' (male, being heterosexual I do not have a girlfriend :P) and we usually play EQ together (hence the comment in my prior message about the second computer and cable connect). The third is for a friend of mine, I personally only play one account. As far as time goes, I am a realtor in AZ so my time depends on my clients and my schedule. As such, I spend alot of time on the computer during the day (working, surfing the net in free time), and play EQ at night and weekends if I'm not showing houses. As far as needing a life, I am a 20yr old female making more than both my parents' income combined with more than enough time to "hang out" with my friends and play online games. I do not do drugs, I don't leach off my parents, I have goals and a definite future as well as a good (legal/wholesome) social life. I'm not sure what your definition of life is, but I am quite content with where I stand at this time. I hope that you are as happy with yours. :)

    • > Forgive me for digressing, but for all you business competent people out there...
      > this is where you need to be.
      Just my random blurb of information.

      EA figured this out about 4 years ago, the trouble is wrapping compelling fiction around a solid PSW engine. They missed with Majestic, they appear to have missed again with MCO. Earth & Beyond (Sci-Fi) may do better if they do the game right and don't release it buggy. Then, of course, next year The Sims Online will rule all others.
