A megalomaniac with a bankroll to rival Ted Turner’s has decided to use his considerable power to engineer a war between Great Britain and China. How is this possible, you ask? Elliot Carver earned his wealth by shrewdly acquiring various media channels, including cable television stations, magazines and a newspaper called “Tomorrow.” By using these resources, Carver plans on covering a story that he creates, one that could trigger World War III.
There’s one fly in the ointment, however: a certain British secret agent with a license to kill and a love life to die for. Of course, this agent extraordinaire is none other than Bond — James Bond, Agent 007. As the dashing spy, you must be prepared to embark on ten different missions based on the 1998 movie of the same name, each with multiple objectives.
Your first assignment is to investigate a military outpost on the Russian border. The winter climate and secured facility call for a warm jacket and plenty of ammunition if you want a fighting chance. In addition to your trademark PK7 with silencer, Q has supplied you with a Laser Designator, medical kit and unlimited bullets. From this point on, you’re on your own.
Use your skills to take out the guards in the compound, borrow any weapons left behind and neutralize the radar dish. You’ll then have to find a way to escape the base by skiing down the tree-filled slopes. If you’re followed, and rest assured you will be, attack using your ski poles or pull off various stunts for style. Future missions require you to escape from behind the wheel of a BMW 750 iL equipped with rockets and machine guns — nothing fancy, James.
