Tired of always playing the good guy? Time to explore the shadowy world of Bond villainy...

Conventions are turned on their head in EA's latest blockbuster 007 offering for PlayStation 2. We, the players, have defected from the ranks of MI6 and are taking the fight to Bond and Her Majesty's Secret Service. And to each other as well because, happily, there's full support for online play this time round.

Saving the world and "keeping the British end up" is all well and good, but we all have our dark sides. Having done our bit for Queen and Country more times than we care to remember, it's time to use our sharpshooting prowess for the purposes of evil.

Being a Bond villain has its share of perks; you get to mix with other legendary members of the Bond universe's criminal fraternity, such as Scaramanga (of Golden Gun fame), Oddjob and Pussy Galore. You also get to visit many of the same exotic locales as James (Switzerland, Hong Kong, Fort Knox, the Caribbean...), although we can't promise you'll have as much luck with the ladies.

The intense first-person firefights of the single-player game are perfectly suited to online play, with a selection of modes that includes story-driven campaign missions, deathmatch-style simulator trials and objective-based wargames.

  • Experience the darker side of the Bond universe

  • Intense weapons combat across a variety of modes

  • Take your villainy to a global level - duke it out with other evil geniuses online
