                              Difficulty Levels

Operative - Enemies will only take a few shots and don't do a lot of damage.
For beginning FPS players.

Agent - Enemies are fairly matched for the most part against you.  They deal
out more damage and you deal out less.  They are tougher to kill.  Not too
hard, but a challenge nonetheless.   For the moderate FPS gamer.

00 Agent - Enemies will deal out a lot of damage, enemies will take more
damage before they die.  Bosses can be quite difficult at times.  Not for
beginning level FPS players.


 Music Volume: Controls the background music.
 Master Volume: The normal sound.


1. Check your speakers are turned on.
2. Check your speakers are turned up.
3. Check your speakers are plugged in.
4. Adjust the volume controls on your computer. (e.g. Go to control panel)
5. The speakers may be faulty.
6. If the problem is not any of the above, contact your manufacturer.

If you have any problems with sound, email me and I could help you!

Can be used to temporarily knock out an enemy.  Not very useful, since your
punches are quicker.  Recharges automatically.

                                    Laser Watch

Necessary for cutting through locks and clasps.  Recharges automatically.

                                   Cellphone Grapple

Whenever you see a metal grapple point, you can use your cell to pull yourself
up to it.

                                      Dart Pen

Fires tranquilizer darts.  The only time you need to resort to this is in the
first mission, when you're at the party with no weapons.


Needed to crack electronic keypads.  If you use the right-mouse button to
activate it, it'll skip over the animation.

                                     Micro Camera

Only used once in the first level.  If you're having a hard time photographing
the women at the party, download the patch.


Has night vision, x-ray, and infrared modes.  Useful for seeing in the dark,
seeing through walls/clothing, and spotting invisible lasers.


You occasionally use this to hack into computers.  Like the decryptor, if you
use the right-mouse button to activate it, it'll skip over the animation.

                                     Phoenix Ronin

Very important to have at certain points, such as the blast pit in Zero Minus
or while fighting the armoured van in High Treason.

As usual, there is a huge selection of beautiful women!

----------------------------------6. Strategy--------------------------------

                                   Body Armour

  To be able to stay alive; you must watch your armour level. And at the same
time, collect as much as you can. Armour is very important. Make sure you have
lots of armour.

  There are two types of armour:

  A full armour jacket gives you 100% armour.
  Armour plates restores 3-4 sections of your health on Operative and 2-3
sections of your health on 00 Agent.

                                 Weapon Choice

In single player missions, you are only allowed to have 4 weapons at a time.
This means you need to drop weapons you won't need and pick up weapons you
will definitely need. There are a few hard decisions to make sometimes; but
you need to choose the best arsenal.
  In levels 1, 2, 4 and 9 this isn't a problem.


Secrets give you supplies like armour and weapons. For example, look at the
1st mission called Rendezvous. If you laser the padlock on a door you get a
"rich" secret, or if you turn the genorator off to switch the spotlights off
on Mission 1 called Rendezvous. Secrets get you points, too!

I shall keep you updated with "rich" secrets in my walkthrough!

                                   Bond Moves

 You get bond moves when you do a stunt like James bond. For example, look at
the 1st mission called Rendezvous. If you grapple up to a grapple; you will
earn a bond move. You also earn points for this, too!!!

I shall also keep you updated with bond moves in my walkthrough!

----------------------------------7. Walkthrough-----------------------------

                               Mission 1 - Rendezvous

o Breach the security perimeter of Drake's castle
o Enter Drake's castle and infiltrate the party
o Rendezvous with CIA agent, maintain party guest cover
o Acquire your Q-Gadgets from the undercover waiter
o Mayhew's female bodyguard is in attendance - photograph every woman
o Recover the stolen briefcase containing the guidance module
o Rescue Agent Nightshade and escape the castle with the guidance module


                                    Section 1

There are a few ways to get into the castle. The straight-forward way is to
drop ontop of the truck as it passes underneath the archway structure you
parachute onto.

How rude of me, I'm forgetting introductions. Please meet 'Rich' (a dedicated
player from the Neoseeker forums). 'Rich' is your guide to secrets and Bond
moves and at this very point,'Rich' points out that jumping ontop of the truck
will award you with a Bond move (signified by the Bond choral blast).

Using the truck-top method, will take you all the way up to the main entrance,
you may need to kill some guards if you are spotted. Ooh, before I forget,
don't forget that you mustn't forget that you will need to hit use/activate
to open doors in this game. Glad I didn't forget that.

If you miss the truck, just walk up to the castle with an unstealthy
Rambo-esque attitude and introduce bullets to anything that gets in your way.

A more interesting approach is to sneak up the road to the next archway and
use your laser watch to burn the padlock on the door. There's a guard on the
walkway above the arch but you can sneak behind him, through the door, up the
ladder and perform a monkey climb across the washing line for a Bond move.
Then it's a case of working your way around the perimeter of the castle.
There's a tricky section where you need to edge along with your back to the
wall, and another section with a patrolling spotlight. As the path ends,
you'll get amessage from 'Q' announcing that you can grapple onto the metal
hook on the balcony above. You grapple using your mobile phone gadget and it's
wise to familiarise yourself with this technique for later on in the game.

                                       Section 2

Now you simply need to find a switch to power the lock mechanism to open a
secure door leading further inside the castle. The 'Energie' switch you are
looking for is found at the far end of a small courtyard with a fountain.
There's a small flight of stairs to the door and a guard is visible through
the window.

There's another lever switch on an outside generator which knocks the power
out to the nearby spotlights. In this same area, see if you can see another
grapple hook for a 'Rich' secret.

Explore the area, killing any guards who get in your way. Be sure to visit the
top of the largest tower to collect the sniper gun.

Now proceed through the security door and sneak or battle your way up the
stairs to the patio doors to watch the short cutscene.

                                        Section 3

Welcome to the party. Don't be intimidated by the bouncers, just walk down the
corridor, past the beefcake, through the double doors to the main party area
and enjoy the cutscene.

Follow the balcony all the way round, past the windows to where Drake made his
heart-warming speech and then down the stairs in order to mingle. Getting your
'Q' gadgets is simply a case of approaching the one and only waiter and
pressing the action/use key.

Use the cigarette 'Felix' lighter to take the photos as requested.

                               *Problem Point*

As described in the hints, you must approach the subject and get them to look
at you in order to take the required close up head shot. If you take a
successful snap you will get a countdown message e.g. "5 subjects remaining".
For some unknown reason, I found things easier if the first photo subject is
the blond in the short black dress. One of the women has a suspicious
similarity to Halle Berry.

Now you can go back up the stairs and through the double doors where Drake
gave his welcome. Enter the library and enjoy the cutscene, the snog and the

Up the spiral staircase, through the double doors and into the artefact/
gallery room with the guards. Sod stealth, you could do with some weaponry.
You should be able to drop all the guards using your dart pen or electric
stunner. Arm yourself with anything they donate.

Follow the corridor to the red gallery with the walkable beams, fireplace and
guard. Lose the guard because your Q-Specs (in x-ray mode) will reveal
something behind the picture to the left of the fireplace. How do you get
behind the picture? Some sort of secret lever I would have thought. The safe
is no match for your laser watch and you now have the documents requested by
'M' and another 'Rich' secret.

The voice of 'M' incidentally is quite a reasonable impersonation of Judi
Dench and Bond is not far the relaxing sound of Pierce Brosnan. As for 'Q',
well, John Cleese is John Cleese and that will never change. Perhaps they
should have tried to do a Desmond Llewlyn?

Continue in a linear fashion to the balcony overlooking the meeting and move
close enough to trigger the cutscene.

Relieve your stress with a gung-ho gun battle, making your way downstairs and
through the bookshelf door to the stone steps.

                                       Section 4

No problems here. Laser watch the padlock for an equipment boost, kill the
guards and thank them for better weaponry. Flick the switch to give power to
the cable car, and be sure to check the crates before entering the cable car,
there's ammo and an essential rocket launcher. This will come in handy in 27.3
seconds from now. Enter the cable car and nudge the switch.

Just when you were enjoying the view, the cable car stops and is ambushed.
Looking back up to the cable station, there are two guards firing at you. It's
a good idea to send them on their way as you hear the sound of an incoming
chopper. The chopper can be easily despatched with 2 or 3 direct rocket hits,
but the problem is getting a good clear shot. It's easily heard but hard to be
seen, so keep looking out of all windows until you catch sight of it. Once you
know where it is, try to estimate where it is heading for when it goes out of
view. Allow for the launch/impact delay when firing rockets, in other words,
the closer the target is, the more likely you are to hit it. If you missed
collecting the rocket launcher, the chopper can be brought down by
conventional fire if you work hard enough.

The chopper takes a skydive and you take a cutscene. Double-entendre time

                           Mission 2 - Airfield Ambush

Enjoy the short cutscene in freezing conditions where the female agent
refuses to zip up her arctic suit. All respect to Bond for keeping his mind
focussed on the matter in hand.

Head to the fencing, to the right of where your colleague waits. Follow the
perimeter fence, easily avoiding the spotlights. Round the back you'll find
the 'Enerad' generator. Use your watch to tell it the time and flick the
switch inside. There's a grapple hook above you if you are interested, but
it didn't exactly reward me with untold riches. Ironically though, it's
another 'Rich' secret.

Retrace your steps and say hello to your fellow agent. She will explain the
plan, you will instantly forget it and feel an urge to follow her. Don't, keep
focussing 007. The guards are now aware of the problem with the generator and
send a guy to check it out. Backtrack towards the fencing and when the guard
finally appears, take him out with your dart pen once he is out of sight.

Thank the sleeping guard for his level 1 security pass (I slipped a £10
Woolworth voucher inside his jacket) and head to the left of the control
tower. Jump the rail ahead of you and enter the 'Control Tower Administration'
door on your left.

I'm afraid this is a section where you need to look after your stealth. I have
an issue with mental stealth, but let's not go there. There is a T-junction
ahead of you. To the left is a guard that you can safely send to sleep with
your dart pen, to the right is a security camera. Security cameras are no
problem if they are looking in another direction or if you run underneath
them to gather your breath.

There's nothing of interest in the offices located at the left of the
T-junction, so just run underneath the camera on the right and take a
breather. After composing yourself, you can smash the window right next to you
and jump through it without detection. Exit this office by the far door to
'Administration'. Again exit by the far door, but you'll need to time your
departure in accordance with the security camera watching this corridor. Rest
in the alcove opposite. Neither the 'Conference Room' nor the 'Server Room'
have anything of interest, however there is a 'Rich' secret to be found in a
drawer in one of these initial offices.

Use your leaning abilities to time the camera and pop across to the 'Utility
Room'. I've no idea what is in the bag, but you get a 'Rich' Bond choral blast
if you jump about to collect it. Next, skip (in a macho manner) into the
'Accounting' office for the simple objective of getting a better view of the
next security camera.

Time your run, jump the sofas and get in position underneath the next security
camera. Look up to observe the camera and when the time is right, make a break
for the 'Records' office. Once in this room, smash the first window on your
left through which you can see the 'Control Tower Access' door. Watch the
camera and make a break for the flight of stairs to the right of the window.

All is quiet at the top of these stairs in the 'Control Tower Administration'.
Smash one of the office windows on the left to get in and then 'negotiate'
with the guards by slaying them. The level 2 security pass is now yours.

Return back down the same flight of stairs and at the appropriate time, run
underneath the security camera and focus yourself on the 'Control Tower
Access' door.

                                  *Problem Point*

When the camera allows, run to the door and hit active/use on the access panel
(NOT the door). This doesn't always work first time, and in some cases it
appears that there may be a bug in the game with respect to various hardware.
Give it several attempts, sometimes it works first time, on other occasions it
can take 5 or 6 retries.

I hope you can still join me, if you can, close the door and ascend the
stairwell. If you want to be flash (and save everyone one of us (c) Queen),
you could make a phone call at this point. If you do, you will be rewarded
with a Bond 'Rich' move.

It does no harm to explore the 'Catwalk Access'. Three guards to kill and some
sniper ammunition is your reward. Next thing you know, the cameras are
offline. Next it is the 'Control Tower' pinnacle. To reduce your damage you
can lob two or three hand-grenades from the safety of the stairs, but the
general idea is to be assertive. There's little point in applying for a UN
security resolution in these situations. Whoops, bit of politics there
((c) Ben Elton).

As your mission objectives explain, your next duty is to shoot all 7 terminal
and control panels in this room. Completion of this is signalled by a short

Go to the top of the stairs and face right as though you'd just ascended them.
This is the sniper point you need in order to protect the blond piece. No
hints, here... just kill them and when you've finished, pick off the two
remaining guys on the roofs opposite.

Retrace back down the stairs in order to leave the building you are in. You'll
face new cannon-fodder on the way back, so beware.

Once back in the main courtyard, head to the right of the snow-mobile and
enter the 'Main Warehouse'. 'Rich' is again kind enough to share the discovery
of another secret in a locked box in the nearby truck. This is a non-stealth
area, so grease your Uzi (that's not a metaphor) and have fun. Look in all the
gaps in the piled crates on your left, there are plenty of guards to injure.

Plenty to explore here, but if you keep hanging a left sticking to the crates,
you'll be well on track. If you go through the crate maze correctly, you'll
be faced by a pile of girders (not Iron Brew), with three sections of tubing
to your left. Crouch and go through the tubing to make friends with some more
guards. If in doubt, talk about football. Once they say the word 'goalkeeper'
you should kill them in a understanding yet violent manner. You may choose to
get 'Rich' by ascending the crates on your right and retracing your steps,
jumping from crate to crate in order to reach the secret arms storage. The
final jump for this optional extra is a toughie, but you are rewarded with a
Bond move if you persevere.

There are two doors available to you now. The 'Primary Aircraft Hangar' door
won't open, so head for the unlabelled door that leads to the 'Aircraft Parts
Storage Yard' and pick up your required equipment on the way.

This next arena is a tough battle. Once entering, your destination is to the
far right, a door entitled 'Maintenance Garage'. You are now excited to see
your goal... the 'Secondary Aircraft Hangar'. Cue cutscene.

Don't be mislead by the talk of 'covering from the radar tower'. The easiest
way to tackle this part of the game is to run towards the radar tower and
introduce all the guards to your good friend, Mr. Death. Climb the first
section of the radar tower ladder to trigger the 'Protect Agent Nightshade'
objective, then immediately drop down and return to the plane to shoot all
the oncoming guards as they pile through the doorway.

Once refuelling is complete the objective about protecting the plane is
insignificant. Just keep up with it and when the plane taxis to the end of
the runway and all you need to do is approach it before it takes off. Approach
it from the front or side, if you run after it from behind it will always be
out of your reach.

Cue pointless cutscene. What's the story with the cutscene graphics quality?
Have they transferred them to VCD, copied them to a VCR, then used a video
capture card to record the finished footage?

                           Mission 3 - Uninvited Guests

o Escort Mayhew to the hidden bunker
o Destroy the computer in Mayhew's office
o Retrieve the code key from the bedroom safe
o Rescue the hostage in the Front Carpark
o Rescue the hostage in the Bathhouse
o Rescue the hostage in the Main Garden Viewing Pavilion
o Rescue the hostage in the Library
o Rescue the hostage in the Servant Quarters
o Return to Mayhew in the Bunker
o Eliminate Yakuza Assassin


                                  Section 1

No time for messing around, it's a quick start. Shoot the approaching geyser
(you might like the gun that he leaves to you in his will), then follow and
protect Mayhew. 'Rich' points out that there's a secret padlocked chest
through the door to your right as you face the double glass doors. It's easy
to lose your bearings in this level and there's more to explore than I will
cover, but hey, we just want to get to the next level.

In the first patio area, you can only take the one door to your left
(sometimes you need to wait for the baddie to open it from the other side).
Then hang a right and follow Mayhew through the next door. Turn right after
the door, accidentally kill the approaching guards and make a mental note of
the double doors to the front driveway on your left.

In the next room kill all the guards including those on the upper balcony.
When safe to do so, Mayhew approaches a picture frame on the wall and opens
a secret door to his bunker. You get a cutscene for your efforts and Mayhew
updates your objectives whilst presenting you with a marble that he insists is
a key.

                                    Section 2

Apart from the ammo boosts, there are two exits from Mayhew's bunker. You can
go back the way you came or explore the bunker for a ladder leading to a
switch to open a manhole exit. The order in which you tackle the mission is up
to you, but the majority of your work can be found by going back the way you
came. Open the manhole lever (this is important), but return via the secret
door lever to section 1.

Go through the far door you originally came through, past the double doors to
the outside driveway and continue to the door in front of you.

                                    Section 3

Relieve some tension again with another gunfight. If you have no pressing
engagements, go up the stairs in the room to your right, shoot the guard
and use your laser watch on a chest inside the wardrobe for extra goodies
(including a 'Rich' secret).

After loading this section and clearing the way, proceed straight ahead and
through the door on your left at the end of the corridor. I know you'll be
fascinated by your new weapon, but I found the basic handgun to be most
effective at this time.

At least three guards need to be read their rights at the other side of this
door. One of them is kind enough to give you his shotgun. There's a kevlar
vest in the first bedroom on the left if you need it.

The next alcove on your left houses two guards holding a servant hostage.
Surprise these guards and kill them in order to free the hostage in the
'Servant Quarters'.

Ignore the two empty bedrooms on your left and proceed ahead through the
door to destroy Mayhew's computer and the guard. When you continue through
the next door, you need to take out another two guards without shooting their
hostage. If successful, you have rescued the 'Library' hostage. Once this is
done, you should clean up the library and insist that all baddies kiss your
feet. If you wish for a 'Rich' secret you need to look around for a secret

As you entered the library on the ground floor, there is a corridor in the
far right corner. Use it, and go past the double doors on your left which
lead to another patio. Enter the next room and make use of your weapons.
Bend it like Beckham round to your right and Mayhew's bedroom is through the
next partition.

Active the silver dragon to open Mayhew's safe, the code key is now yours.
There's a kevlar vest in his en-suite should you need it. Next it's another
case of retracing your steps back through the bedroom, back through the
lounge, but hang a right through the double doors to another patio area.
Go through the only other door to the right.

                                    Section 4

First of all, let's head to your right, round the corner and to your right
again into the kitchen. Why? No reason at all, I was just making the point
that you cannot always rely on walkthroughs. Go out of the kitchen and
straight ahead into the central lounge area. There's just one door to your
right, make use of it.

Facing you is the door to the pavilion. Burst in, kill the baddie and thus
rescue the 'Pavilion Hostage'. Whilst in this pavilion room, seize the
opportunity to kill at least three guards patrolling the gardens through the
windows. Smash a window and jump out of the pavilion into the garden area.
If you have problems in the next section, make note of the 'washing line'
that leads from the rock formation in this area back to the pavilion.

As you entered the pavilion, head to the left corner of the garden to the
wooden door.

                                    Section 5

Kill the guards and hug the building to your left, it's the bathhouse. Enter
the bathhouse and rescue the girl. Enjoy the short but flirtatious cutscene.
You can earn yourself a bonus if you manage to jump onto the raised area in
the bathhouse and open the padlocked chest behind the shampoo shelving
(gaining a 'Rich' secret). Now you have just the one hostage to rescue
located in the front car park guarded by the double doors I mentioned earlier.
There are different ways to reach this point, but we are going to go via
Meyhew's bunker. So exit the bathhouse via the right hand door and step out
into the garden. The manhole to Mayhew's bunker is dead ahead, behind the
monument next to the lantern. If you find no way of descending, you must have
forgotten to flick the manhole switch from inside Mayhew's bunker. If this is
the case, you need to go back through the wooden garden gates, head to the rock
formation, shoot the lanterns and clamber back to the pavilion avoiding the
sparks but earning a 'Rich' Bond move. After that, make your war to the double
doors leading to the front carpark, you're on your own this time.

Back in Mayhew's bunker, laser the padlock on the equipment cupboard to get
tooled up (rewarding yourself with a 'Rich' secret), then proceed past Mayhew
and back out via his secret 'picture' entrance.

                                   Section Change

Don't go upstairs, take the only logical exit and lo and behold, you will find
the double doors to the front car park on your right. This is where the final
hostage is being held. Once you've killed her captors, familiarise yourself
with the front car park as you are about to meet a James Bond equivalent of
an end-of-level boss.

We are missing two 'Rich' Bond moves. If you are the kind of player who is
willing to pay a bit more for those optional extras, then you could explore
the upstairs area with a Sherlock Holmes magnifying glass. Outside one of the
upstairs rooms stands a cupboard with a latern and a chest. You can climb up
the lantern, onto the chest and jump/crouch/move/shuffle/squeeze through the
window onto the roof. Finally, whilst on the rooftops, pay attention to the
balcony near the library. It's grapplable, but much easier if you have
already rescued the library hostage.

Retrace your steps as instructed and return to Mayhew via the secret 'picture'

                                  Section Change

Go down the stairs and approach Mayhew.

                                  Section Change

Watch the cutscene, gasp at the consequences, and prepare for a ninja fight.
There's no tactics needed, just run and shoot. When you are successful, you
can watch another cutscene and pack your essentials for Tokyo. I don't trust
that 'oiseau' (French bird).

                            Mission 4 - Phoenix Rising

o Remain undetected
o Steal the NightFire data from the Terminal Computer
o Activate main tower elevators
o Upload Q-Worm to Administrator's Computer
o Upload Q-Worm to Accounting Executive's computer
o Upload Q-Worm to Elevator Control Computer
o Use magnetic grapples to scale glass surface of building

o Bug Drake's Penthouse Office


                                    Section 1

Sit back and enjoy the best cutscene in the game. OK, squirm at the
double-entendre but try to concentrate on the positives. This is the beginning
of an epic mission, if you don't have trouble at some point in the tower
block, then you are Pierce Brosnan himself.

Head to your right when in the carpark. Listen to 'M', she gives you good
advice. Use your dart gun on the patrolling guard and again on the two guards
stationed outside the lifts.

Continue past the lift and head right. There is an engineer on a raised
platform and a door in the wall on the left infront of him. Pen him if you
wish and go through that door but press the rewind button to check out the
van opposite for a 'Rich' secret.

Go up the stairs and enter a world of pain ((c) John Goodman, The Big

                                     Section 2

This is a stealth part, imagine yourself as Claude Rains and let the world
be your lobster. Remember not to kill the guards, but tranquilise and
electrocute them as much as you deem necessary. Then electrocute them again
for comedy effect.

Two guards patrol to your left. To make things easy, use your dart pen on both
of them and keep left avoiding the blackened glass of the security room on the

Continue hugging the left hand wall and enter the reception area. There's one
guard, who's fate lies in your hands, and a sleeping receptionist behind the
desk. Most importantly, there's a security pass on the corner of the reception

*Problem Point*
Sometimes this security pass is not visible, if so, just work your way around
the desk until you strike gold and your objectives are updated. The pass
should be facing the sleeping receptionist.

Return to the main lobby and note the grappling hook. For the price of a Lamb
Bhuna you can perform a 'Rich' (Bond) move followed by a 'Rich' secret when
you collect the gun/ammo on the distant coffe table.

You should now head to the security room with the fancy hologram projection.
'Q' will give you a voice-over indicating that you need to use your notepad
gadget to override the red control panel which currently shows lots of
flashing numbers and reads 'Offline'.

When you use the notepad 'decrypter' gadget, hold down the key/button and
watch the code numbers flash until you have success. You have now put the main
elevators online, so return to the area where you began this section and use
one of the two lifts that now display 'Online' above them.

                                       Section 3

Welcome to the top-ish floor, you are about to have SO much fun, although it
will not feel like fun at the time. If you trip the alarm at any point in the
next section, you are on your own. You can still complete the level but it's
not pleasurable.

'Q' gives you a lecture about using your Q-Specs to detect hidden trips. I
don't intend to use his advise, as the laser guards are pretty obvious, but
I'm not stopping you from doing so, especially if you look good in shades.

Stun the first patrolling guard using your good looks, er sorry, your electric

The reception area to the right seems impossible to jump over. As this causes
unwanted anxiety you'll be pleased to know that the goodies at the other side
are available if you use the 'Rorimo' jump technique (holding down the 'walk'
key, whilst manipulating 'jump'/'crouch'). Despite all the corridors and
doors, there's only one way to proceed. After the lift reception area, hang a
left. Don't hang another left across the walkway, move ahead to the corridor
that bends to the right.

The first door on the left leads to some offices. Explore the offices rather
than continue forward through the security beams.

Go straight ahead down the small corridor and through the door on the right.
Continue logically to the next door and listen to the warning from 'Q'. This
is a prime example of how useful the 'lean' keys can be. Ignore the 'Server
Room' for the time being and concentrate on avoiding the security cameras. In
fact there's one waiting for you outside the door and together with the
patrolling guard it presents you with a headache.

Stun the guard when out of sight of the camera and continue down the corridor.
On your left is a door to the kitchen. If you haven't triggered the alarms,
you can walk in without a care in the world. There's a camera in the kitchen
so think twice before jumping on a table and performing a striptease. Position
yourself directly beneath the camera before making a dash for the far door.

After leaving the kitchen have a rest under the next security camera in the
corridor. There are some double doors on the way to the balcony area behind a
security gate, and there's a single door on the right infront of another laser
detection point. Use the single door to enter the dark offices. You can refill
your tranquiliser darts in the second office on your left, before bearing to
your right into the next section of dark offices. Ahead of you, behind the
glass partition is the administrator's office, boasting the only light to be
found in this area.

Entering his/her office triggers a message from 'Q'. Do as he says, approach
the device on the desk with the red light and hit activate/use to open its CD
tray. I hardly need tell you that you select your credit card gadget and
activate it to place the worm CD in the tray. If you DO need telling, you must
select your credit card gadget and activate it to place the worm CD in the

Assuming you have not triggered the alarm yet, you can exit the dark offices
and venture past the camera into the large balcony foyer with the spiral

If you stick to the left, the two cameras on the right will not bother you.
The problem is the guard patrolling the opposing corridor. If you abuse him,
the camera will spot it and you are introduced to Mr. Tommy McTrouble. The
best way to avoid this is to let him see you then use the dart pen as he
attempts to sound the alarm, or deal with him in the spiral area if he runs
after you. Note the blackened security window overlooking this balcony area,
you're going to use it later.

Run towards the camera, ignore the double (Diana) doors on your left and slip
through the door on your right. At the far side ((c) Gary Larson) of this
office, you'll notice a guard making use of the water fountain. Find a way
to put him to sleep. I forced him to watch the first two Lord of the Rings
films back-to-back and he slept like a baby.

After exiting this office space, you will find the 'Accounting Exec' suite
to your right. After entering this office, confront the hi-tech fax machine
on the desk and hit activate/use to open the CD draw. As per usual, whip out
your 'Euro Charge' credit card gadget and upload the Q-virus to the accounting
executive's computer as instructed.

Exit this office and hang a right to the security room. Stun the guard inside
and use your PDA decrypter on the nearby console. Turn right out of the
security room then left when you see the double doors.

Once again, if you trigger the alarms, this level becomes totally different
and you are on your own... you rebel.

                                  Section 4

Double-back on yourself to the right, creep past the window where the engineer
aimlessly walks and pop through the door ahead. You know what to do with the
padlock on the storage cupboard by now, so I won't insult you by pointing out
that there's a 'Rich' secret here. Sorry, I just just insulted you by pointing
out there's a 'Rich' secret here.

You musn't kill the engineer, so I suggest you burst in when his back is
turned an stun him. In fact stun him again when he's on the ground as an
indication of your authority. Before leaving this room, stun the engineer
again. Stun him another time and phone my psychologist if you have any
explanation as to why I feel the urge to persecute this guy.

On the other side of the door is a sensitive area. If you knock out an
engineer, the
supervisor behind the glass partition is likely to raise the alarm. Whilst
crouching, descend the stairs to your right, then hug the wall to your left
before ascending the stairs at the far end of the room. Brace yourself before
opening the door, all hell is about to break loose.

I apologise, I couldn't resist a blatant lie. After passing through the door,
follow to your left and through the door to a pointless room. Behind the far
door, swanks the supervisor. Burst in and stun him (with your dashing looks).
Make a 'Euro Charge' payment to the Elevator Control Computer and head back
through the two rooms, taking a left at the corridor junction.

On the left at the end of the corridor is a doorway leading to a room with a
guard and an engineer getting friendly. You can try to sneak into the room but
the guard is almost certain to spot you, and of course killing either of them
is out of the question. You don't have enough time to run in and stun the
guard either, so if your dart pen isn't out of ink, this is a good time to
write some poisoned love-letters. On the left of the corridor is a laserable
padlocked panel which needs to be punched/shot after opening. Not only does
this gain you a 'Rich' move, but it also cuts the lights where the two dead
guys are still living. The darkness allows you to use your Q-specs to sneak
past them or sneak up to them. If you are desperate, another approach is to
throw a flash bomb at their feet then run in and electrocute them in the

                                    Section 5

Stealthiness is now over so feel free to shoot 'em up. Say goodbye to the
first guard and listen to the vocal tip from 'Q'. Continue across the walkway,
trigger the cutscene and before you know it, you are Walking on Tokian Glass
((c) Annie Lennox-ish).

You are not allowed to make a save during this next stunt so read ahead. Climb
up a fraction so that you can see the guard facing you through the window then
edge away from him, all the way to the left. Climb up one floor and peek
through the window to calculate the guards' movements. When you get the urge,
climb the window to the next floor. There's a guard watching the scenery
infront of you, so you need to clamber to the far right. As you side-step,
check out the reflection graphics on the glass panels and say a prayer for the
people responsible for making the game you have copied. Shimmy to your left
and await the perfect time to clamber up another floor. The next floor is
easy, just keep to the right. Timing is required on the next floor, stick to
the right but observe the guard movements. Again, keeping to the right you
can time your ascent to the next floor. The final floor is free from guards,
so you whiz up the glass to see the cutscene where you jump ontop of the lift.

                                     Section 6

You can only head left after the cutscene. The first room on your left is the
entrance to Mayhew's office. Go through the next door and 'Euro Charge' his
computer. If you follow the corridor you get a message from 'M' encouraging
you to go through the double doors. There's nothing else to be found on this
level so go right ahead and activate the swipe console on the left of the
doors. You are not stupid, use your PDA decrypter on the red control panel
to make it green.

Enter the dome that houses the main computer terminal and tap away at the
keyboard to complete your primary objective. Go back the way you came and
introduce the new wave of baddies to gunfire. Once they have all passed away,
'M' will give you a voice over describing your new objectives.

The 'Executive Meeting room' is on your left, approaching the table will
trigger the cutscene. All you need do now is leave the meeting room, through
the reception office and go through the 'Exit' door to your left.

                                   Section 7

Enter the penthouse suite. You wish the double doors would open, but have
patience. Use your PDA decrypter on the console to get tooled up and awarded
with a 'Rich' Bond move. The security gate will raise later on. Laser the
chest to get more ammo. Get close to the computer to place the bug and prepare
for a BK Chopper (its like a BK Whopper, you need to flame grill it). Head
outside and speak with with the chopper in machine-gun language. Once you've
made sufficient damage an alarm will sound and you can return inside the
penthouse to collect the rocket launcher and armour from behind the security
gate. Now that you're heavily armed go back outside and communicate with the
chopper via the rocket launcher. Timing the missile impact with the chopper
movement is not straightforward, but it only takes a couple of hits to bring
it down. You are rewarded with a cutscene homage to "The Spy Who Loved Me" and
"The Living Daylights", but prepare yourself because you ain't seen the last
of the office tower.

                           Mission 5 - Hidden Agenda

o Locate and defeat Rook
o Restore power to the service elevator
o Gain access to the astronaut training facility
o Take the service elevator to the basement
o Disengage the security locks to the control rooms
o Activate the turbines to drain the airlock
o Drain water from the airlock
o Acquire the space suit


                                    Section 1

Listen to the message from 'M' and watch the brief cutscene, the pleasure is
all yours. Make use of your Q-Specs (night vision) and ascend the ducting.
Take a right at each junction and continue until you drop a short distance.
The next grate can be lasered with your watch but let's continue down the
ducting to the final grate which also is vulnerable to your laser. Drop into
the storage room and collect any equipment you may require before exiting via
the door. If you are a dedicated player, there are three 'Rich' secrets and a
'Rich' move to be found in this area.

After killing the guards you'll be delighted to discover a couple of proximity
mines in a cupboard to your right. You need to explore the area behind that
door too. You've been here before, but you must battle your way to the distant
room past the 'turbines/generator' wall plaque. After flicking the switch to
generate lift power, you may return to the room offering the proximity mines
and proceed ahead to the 'Service Elevator'.

The service elevator drops you one floor and the guards you kill leave behind
a handy new machine-gun. Firstly, head to your left, open the glass door and
kill the guards. When you return to the service elevator, the security office
is open and more baddies await. When you enter the security office, laser the
padlock and pull the lever which activates... restores power to... opens the
... well it does something, trust me on this one. Head left out of the
security office and throw a hand grenade round the corner to ignite the two
metal drums, thus destroying the gate.

Head through the smoking gate and up all the stairs before opening another
swish glass door leading to an area you are getting sick of. Head left towards
the cupboard with the proximity mines and through the door. Have another gun
battle before initialising the turbines in 'Control Room 1' and 'Control Room
2'. Pop back downstairs and climb into a space suit (there are three in the
rack) and you may now go through the air-lock.

                                      Section 2

Woah, you're wearing a space suit. Turn left and hit the door switch. The
chamber floods with water but don't panic ((c) The Hitch-Hiker's Guide to the
Galaxy). Follow the tunnel and activate the next door switch. Kill the baddies
and ascend the platforms surrounding the shuttle. Since you are underwater,
your jump key allows you to ascend in a way that is only possible in a porn
movie. High above and slightly to the right is another door but you'll need
to flick the red switch to gain access.

Follow the tunnel to the laser trips and save your game. Observe and time the
lasers in order to float past them. Stick with the same method as you continue
past the fan in the floor of the tunnel. At the end of this section, there is
another switch that drains the water leaving you free to proceed.

The next door leads you to a showdown with Rook. He's pretty harmless and I'm
placing my
money on you. Rook tends to linger at the top of the shuttle chamber and you
should be aware of
the fan on the floor, it sucks everything towards it, so you will need to jump
from ledge to
ledge if you wish to face Rook head-on.

Once Rook is killed you can watch another cutscene whilst you unwillingly fall

                          Mission 6 - High Treason

o Destroy the Phoenix Transport Vans
o Escape the tower alive
o Cripple the Phoenix computer network
o Destroy the servers in the server room
o Destroy the servers on the accounting floor
o Find and acquire the explosive charges


                               Section 1

                             *Problem Point*

This is the section where normal humans get stuck and die. Stay in the
elevator, don't try any wild jumps, but if the elevator crashes to the
ground killing you, then you need to read on.

Your mission James, should you decide to accept it ((c) Mission Impossible) is
to kill the baddies that make your life difficult as the elevator descends.
Award the priority of your bullets to the rocket launching guys. Halfway down,
a rocket launching guy blows the hand-rail off the lift, don't let this bother

The lift halts three-quarters of the way down giving you the opportunity of
some shooting practise as guys attack across an exterior walkway from the left
and right alternatively. When you've cleared this area, the lift makes another
drop leaving you facing the external walkway. A baddie (we'll call him
Stanley) breaks the glass wall of this walkway and fires at you. Why won't
Stanley just talk to you and resolve the differences peacefully? Shoot him
nastily in the head.

                                 *Problem Point*

Don't feel embarrassed, if you've never used the grappler phone you can't be
expected to be on the same wavelength as the level designer. You have two
options, you can remain on the lift (which will hurt) or you can concentrate
on the metal hook on the inner roof of the glass walkway, directly above
Stanley. This is a grapple hook and you need to be familiar with this
technique from now on. What's the story, morning glory ((c) Oasis), select
your phone gadget and fire it directly at the metal hook, holding down the
fire key until you have safely landed in the walkway.

                                      Section 2

Head to the right, you've been here before so you should be familiar with
the layout. At the T-junction take a left, then left again through the door
for an office battle. After shedding blood continue ahead, hang a right into
an office area and leave via the far door. Ahead to the right is the 'Server
Room' which is your next objective, but let's play by the rules and find some
explosives first.

This not a stealth mission, so feel free to damage the camera outside the
server room and make your way down the corridor to the kitchen. When you open
the door to the kitchen there is a briefcase on the table which doesn't like
you. Return the compliment with all out machine-gun fire until it sparks.
Proceed through the kitchen and beware of the nasty guard but be sure to pick
up the briefcase gadget infront of him (then wonder why I never mention it
again). Exit via the far door and pass through the single door to your left
next to the security gate, where three unfriendly guards choose not to welcome
you. Head to your right and go through the next door to the other office area.

Enter the administrator's office to trigger an exploding photocopier and some
baddies at the other side of the double doors. The exploding photocopier blows
a hole in the wall which is your next point of exit. Pop through the hole in
the wall, kill any opposition and get tooled-up. Exit through the doors to the
balcony area and introduce the baddies to Mr. Donald McDeath.

                                   *Problem Point*

Ahead and slightly to your left is the blackened window of the security
office. Shatter it and jump inside (with a simutaneous crouch) to lift the
security gates via the switch on your right. It would appear that there is a
graphics bug affecting some poeple at this point. If you have found and
smashed the window in question but are unable to jump through it, then try
'Manny's mayhem method of throwing a handful of grenades at the base of the
window. Failing that, I believe the only other way forward is to activate
a 'no clipping' cheat mode to walk straight through the window/wall.

Exit back out of the window and follow the corridor on your right to the
'Accounting Exec's office where a few supplies are waiting for you. Continue
down the corridor to the locked 'Security' office. Round the corner to your
left is a guy guarding the exit you will use when we've completed the
outstanding objectives. Continue past the exit and cross the infamous walkway
with the grapple hook.

                              *Problem Point*

A handful of new baddies are waiting to greet you but you know this level like
the back of your hand by now, so make your way to the 'Server Room'. We need
to create a mess of this room, so pop back to the 'Administrator's office and
the adjoining room if you are missing the rocket launcher or need to stock up
on grenades. Grenades are the safest way to destroy the servers, but the
rocket launcher can be used in reserve. You will receive countdown messages if
you are a successful server-slayer, e.g. "You must destroy three more
servers". At first I misunderstood the advise from my mentors and threw lots
of grenadine into the room. Being made of pomegranate juice, this didn't have
much effect, although I wrecked the space-bar on one of the servers.

Resist the natural urge to descend a floor by jumping on the spirals, just
head back through the walkway with the grapple hook and leave via the stairway
exit near the 'Security' office which we passed a couple of minutes ago.

                                   Section 3

Have a quick gunfight and get your bearings, you are on level 37. You are
likely to find level 38 irresistible. Extra rockets and increased damage is
all that lies in wait. Levels 39, 40 and 'Floor M' (at the top of the stairs)
are all inaccessible, head down rather than up. Levels 36 and 35 are out of
bounds. Level 33 offers you two baddies to kill but sod all else. Level 29 is
home to some amour plating, a bag of stuff and another crazy briefcase infront
of the nearby desk. Collecting the briefcase will gain you a 'Rich' secret.
Upon reaching level 20, the stairwell explodes, but you are just able to drop
down the first flight by hugging the left hand wall starting from the
double-doors of level 19.

Work your way through the offices of level 18 and you'll eventually find
yourself looking up at the nostalgic corridor with the grapple hook. As you
begin to reminisce about the good old days, a guy with a rocket launcher
rudely interrupts your dreams. An explosion has occurred a fraction further
along this corridor. Don't pester yourself with the reason as to why this has
happened, just drop down the hole to the next floor and jump through the
window slaughtering the guards. You have to be cruel to be kind and despite
all this mindless killing, don't forget that you are saving the world.

Happy hunting in the offices and keep a look out for the armour plating and
rocket ammo. Work your way through the rooms and locate the stairwell doorway
beyond the two guys boasting rocket launchers. Level 13 produces a surprise
attack that you were no doubt expecting and you might consider dropping one
of your weapons in favour of the ones they leave behind. Level 7 holds the
future, but by all means, venture to the bottom of the stairs past two rocket
launching guys for a kevlar vest, more rocket ammo and another 'Rich' secret.

                                    Section 4

You can jump the first laser trip bomb on your left, but the next part can
be tricky. Ahead of you lies an ajar door with another laser mine behind it.
I suggest you lob a grenade through the gap in the door, but please perform
a quick-save before you do because sometimes the door jams (jams, as in stuck,
not as in a band practise session). Er, many deaths later, I've just
discovered that you simply open it and trip the mine without damage.

The following room is full of laser limpet mines and an A.I. briefcase which
will take pleasure in grazing you. By all means, do it the hard way, but I
simply had a party with my rocket launcher (we wore party hats and had party
poppers too. When I pulled the first part popper, my rocket launcher massacred
me in self defense). The rockets clear all laser mines and, once it opens, a
single rocket will send the briefcase to the lost luggage department.

Jump through the window to the left of the briefcase and follow the corridor
to your right. No doors are accessible until you reach the balcony area with
the meeting room on your right. If you look up you can just about see the
spirals which once magnetised you. If you continue to see spirals after this
point, you should cease playing the game and gradually reduce your drug
intake. Approach the opposite end of the balcony to trigger a wave of rocket
launching baddies on the floors above and below, then say hello to the far
security gate to trigger the baddies to burst out of the 'Meeting Room'.

Laser the padlocked chest in the meeting room to acquire the explosives and
return to the balcony area to find all the security gates recoiled (open).
Choose the corridor to the right as you leave the 'Meeting Room' and pop
through the single door on the right just before the security gate. Rocket
the briefcase through the window on your left and dispose of any other
opposition before exploding all three servers in this room. Jump through said
window and continue your task of crippling the computer network. There are two
server cabinets against the wall on the far left of this room. To save ammo,
I suggest you place a proximity mine (not using the laser mode) on the left
hand one, then stand back and rocket the other cabinet on the right. Two
birds, one stone... and a proximity mine. As the countdown message indicates,
there's more servers wanting to die.

Exit via the far door and nip across the corridor through the door leading
to the dark offices. There's another two servers to destroy here. Use the same
gimmick, a proximity mine for one, a rocket for the other. Carefully dismantle
the window in the next office, by smashing it with tremendous force and head
slightly to your right, collecting the armour plating and hand-grenades. After
collecting the spare rockets, don't ignore the laser trip mines on the left
hand wall. I hardly need lecture you about ways to destroy them. Continue
ahead, the lift is open and awaits your presence.

                                   Section 5

You are in a car park. I can't speak for you, but when I suddenly find myself
in a car park without explanation, I panic. A black van makes totally
exaggerated tyre screeches whilst the occupants try to kill you. You can
destroy the van with any old machine gun, but you'll need to rocket it on
harder settings. A nifty little Rich trick is throw activate/drop a ballistic
briefcase outside the lift door and run off to watch the action from behind
the safety of a pillar.

To destroy the vans, just lob a hand grenade under all five of them. You may
now pass through the exit doorway next to the few stairs that leads to some
armour, ammo and a laserable padlock. Merely ascend the stairs to progress.

                                     Section 6

This next section is a sticking point for most humanoid life forms. It is easy
to snowball the difficulty beyond control, but it is equally easy to keep it

Run past the broken lift and bear right. You can't avoid detection and you
don't need to. Kill the five oncoming guards before smashing the darkened
glass hiding the security room to your right. Jump through the broken window
and eliminate any remaining opposition. There's plenty of ammo and other bare
necessities in this room but most importantly there is a security lever which
currently reads 'Systems Clear' in green.

You can ignore this lever for the time being because we need to trigger some
security gates that answer to this switch and this switch alone. So jump back
out of the security window and hug the wall to your right. Pop down the stairs
to create a 'security alert', thus dopping grills.

                                *Problem Point*

This is where we all get stuck, how do we raise the gates? It's not
complicated, just pop back to the security room you came from and check out
the lever as previously described. It now reads 'Gates Engaged' in red.
Activate/use the lever and you'll hear a faint click followed by a clunk. It's
not a safety advert for seatbelts, you've just raised the problematic grills
even though the control lever shows no visual indication.

If you find yourself stuck in this final foyer area facing a constant spawning
stream of guards, you will develop a major migraine and you have left your
painkillers in the car. I suggest you activate your spinning briefcase of
death in the foyer centre and re-attempt the guidelines above. There's also
an ultra-rich 'Rich' secret to be gained by firing a rocket at the large stone
dragon carving where it attaches to the ceiling.

Make friends with your Australian counterpart during the cutscene and relax,
you've just completed the hardest part of the game!!!

                             Mission 7 - Island Getaway

o Find and rescue Alura
o Gain entry into the caves
o Gain entry into the island base
o Locate and acquire explosives
o Place explosives beneath missile gantry
o Plant Q-Worm into missile launch computer
o Locate electronic counter measure (ECM) buildings
o Disable all electronic counter measures (ECM)
o Reach Drake's island base
o Plant explosives on all bridge supports


                                      Section 1

After a brief cutscene, you'll realise that life's a beach and you are
standing on it. You are in for another epic, but there's nothing to be scared
of, especially ridicule ((c) Adam and the Ants)

Head to your left past your rubber dingy and head through the rock archway. I
knew you couldn't resist taking a pot-shot at one of those pigeons perched on
a rock. Continue to follow the shore until you come to a beach hut guarded by
commandos. They are tougher than the normal baddie, but then again, they
haven't met you. Enter the hut and 'Euro Charge' the virus into the terminal.
Hell, send a fax if you've nothing better to do.

Leave the beach hut and head left across the water to begin your ascent. This
next section is quite linear, continue up the path back through the rock
archway. At the top of the path, enter the cave, man. *Enter your very own pun
joke in this space*

                                      Section 2

Negotiate with the guards then climb down the ladder from the platform.
Descend just the one level, there's no need to go swimming. Cross the gangway
and admire the beautiful scenic reflection from the surface of the water...
then kill lots of guards without blinking. There's a padlock to BBQ and one of
the far cupboards reveals armour plating and some Brasso. I suggest you drink
the Brasso in one go with your fingers in your ears, your eyes shut and your
nose pinched by a third party, it will taste exactly like Bailey's Irish
Cream... if you concentrate hard enough. Pop back out and through the caged
area to your left before continuing down the caves.

Kill the guards protecting the next metal mesh gate and waltz through. To your
right is another padlock begging for heat. To your left is yet another meshed
area which I'm sure is accessible, but it has taken a personal dislike to me.
'John Zachary Bouwens' points out that you can enter this meshed area by
standing on one of your own grenades (ala Quake II 'rocket jump') and that
there is a grapple hook next to the orange and yellow pipes which travel
overhead. Thanks John, that's another fine mesh you've got me into ((c) Oliver
Hardy). I believe you can also perform a 'Rorimo Jump' up the boxes to enter
the same area.

Continue down the cave tunnel to see the green arrow of progression.

                                     Section 3

We haven't used the sniper rifle yet, have we? If you want to test it, shoot
the guys in the next room. If you've already tested your sniper rifle, run
in and shoot the guys in the next room anyway. There's some equipment up for
grabs if you climb the ladder on the far left, but the 'Only Way is Up'
((c) Yazz and the Plastic Population), and to your right.

So climb the stairs and enter the high-tech corridors. The first room on your
right supplies you with supplies, check all the lockers too. Press on down the
corridor, kill some people for a cheap laugh, then laser the padlock to get
your hands on the explosives. Now head up the stairs on the left side of the
room and notice the overhead wire leading to the far balcony. If you are low
on equipment you should jump to reach it.

Continue across the upper walkway through the only door available on your
right. Should you need a rocket launcher, there's a red door keypad on the
left which can be hacked with your PDA decrypter, don't kill the civilian
engineer in the space suit. The remaining doorway at the end of the corridor
leads to a spiral staircase. After passing through the doorway at the top of
the stairs you have the choice of another doorway straight ahead or a corridor
on your right. We need to explore both but we'll head down the corridor to the
right first of all. The corridor hangs right again and past some stairs on the
right which give you a nice view of the missile plus the opportunity to
despatch a few guards at distance.

Continue to the end of the corridor round the bend to the right and through
the doorway on the left. Proceed round the gangway and through the door at the
end on the right. Walk round the blue and red pipes and step into the missile
chamber. The door directly infront of you is locked, so get your trunks and
towel and swim to the control room area to the left. There's a little ladder
to help you out of the water. Burst into the missile computer control office
but if you have a twitchy trigger finger, try to remain calm because killing
the civilian lab technicians will cost you the mission. There's some baddies
down the small flight of stairs to your right who can be sprayed with bullets.
The technicians won't even look up from their clipboards. Collect the
equipment from the lower room and then 'Euro Charge' the Q-virus onto the
computer next to the technicians. After leaving the control room area, begin
a new paragraph because this one is too lengthy.

The missile gantry is now moving up and down like a bizarre fairground ride.
We need to jump onto it from the platform ahead to the left of you, but first
take a very deep breath.

                               *Problem Point*

To fulfil the objective of placing the explosive beneath the missile gantry
you need to swim down, down, deeper and down ((c) Status Quo) all the way to
the bottom of the water. There's no access through the grate, but on either
side of this underwater bunker is a way in and out. Placing the explosives
happens automatically, you simply to need approach the red electricity cabinet
which can't be an electricity cabinet because it's underwater.

Unhelpfully, there's no little ladder to climb out at the ideal location, so
swim back to the platform where you entered the chamber (not the control room
area) and fix your hair. Leave the missile chamber and retrace your steps all
the way back, past the yellow Sinclair C5, and take the first door that
eventually appears on your right. Follow this corridor and once again step
into the missile chamber in the desired location.

You can run straight ahead on jump onto the moving missile gantry. When it
rises to its highest point you should jump off the far side to the first
catwalk with the ladder. To make things easier you could now have a bit more
sniper practise by picking off some of the annoying guards in this area. Climb
the ladder past the second catwalk all the way to the top.

                             *Problem Point*

Human instinct suggests that we run right around the top catwalk and attempt
a suicidal jump back onto the upper part of the moving gantry. Such efforts
will end in tears, but around the back of this catwalk look above you and say
"D'oh!" Make a telephone call to Dr. Hook and discuss the subject of

You are now on the very top catwalk and you may follow the balcony round
either side. You leave the balcony on the far left and walk past a locked door
in the cave wall on your left. Continue a little bit further along this short
walkway and the green arrow of progression is waiting for your company at the
next doorway on the left. A short cutscene gives proof that the missile is no

                                Section 4

Follow the caves to the left or right and begin your spiral ascent at the far
side. As you approach the door to the first control room, you will hear manic
gunfire. Just wait outside the door for a short while and listen to this guy's
anger management disorder. After putting the guy out of his misery there's a
kevlar vest and some hand gun equipment to collect.

Leave the room by the opposing door and continue the spiral ascent across the
bridge. Halfway across, when you get the distinct feeling that the bridge is
going to collapse... nothing happens. Deal with the disappointment with the
help of the Samaritans and continue the spiral path to the next control room.

Enter this control room to collect the armour plates and rockets. Once again,
go through the opposing door and continue up the path. Run across another
bridge of disappointment and into the next control room. Note the wires
securing the metal tower, I'm sure there must a way to reach it. And indeed
there IS. 'Arsetound' explains that after crossing the very first wooden
bridge, face the metal tower and look for the red light above the gangway.
Above the light is a grapple hook and as you know by now, a grapple a day
keeps the doctor away. To leave the (optional) tower, 'Arsetound' explains
that you should jump from the gangway onto the second wooden bridge at
which point you'll be respected by a 'Bond move' choral blast.

This final control room is being used as a makeshift prison, you can't run
straight through the door ahead because your Australian colleague needs to be
released from the cage to your right. The sniper rifle on the table has her
name written on it, but there's some armour plating and more equipment to be
collected beyond the cage. There's also a new weapon, which sort of falls into
the grenade launcher class. You may need to sacrifice an existing weapon if
you choose to take it. Just drop a handgun if you are greedy.

You'll need the PDA decrypter to free Alura. Amaze yourself with the next
cutscene, her gratitude for being rescued is astronomical. You may now leave
the control room and embark on the final leg of your ascent, Laura Croft will
follow you. Hang a right through the cave tunnel at the top and don't stray
from the path ((c) An American Werewolf in London) to descend. Cross the
bridge and continue in a linear fashion.

The path comes to a cul-de-sac in the form of a neat little circle, and at
this point you need to jump onto the next section of path below where the
guards are waiting. Be sure to jump, don't just drop off. Cross a final bridge
and take a bit more flak as you make your way to a guarded cave entrance.
Laura Croft has probably lost sight of you by now, but it doesn't matter,
enter the cave and she will miraculously be by your side as you begin the
next section.

                                 Section 5

Head out to the fresh air, have a quick chat with Laura then follow her by
dropping down the ledges in the direction of the communication buildings. In
an outstanding example of teamwork... she runs off. You may need to provide
her with some covering fire because a man in the generator hut (with the grey
chimney) takes a dislike to her.

You could take this opportunity to sniper some guards in the main
communication building with the satellite tower but your main objective is to
investigate the corrugated iron generator hut. There's some power-ups inside
on the upper balcony, but our destination is the trapdoor in the far right of
the lower floor.

                                 *Problem Point*

When you approach the trapdoor there is no indication that it can be opened,
but go right ahead and click the activate/use button.

Drop down the ladder, along the tunnel, and climb up the ladder through the
trapdoor at the other end. Pop up the stairs and flick the lever next to the
radar screen. One ECM left to disable. There's little point in going further
up the stairs to the roof, so retrace your steps to the bottom of the building
and exit via the tunnel to the generator hut. You went upstairs to the roof,
didn't you? Come on, be honest. Gain access to this first ECM
building via a sneakily-located grapple-hook.

Leave the hut and follow the road past the first ECM building and go through
the concrete road tunnel. Enter the guard hut on the left and pull the lever
reading 'Gates Engaged' so that it changes to 'System Clear'. This lever opens
the large iron gates just down the stairs from the hut. With these gates open,
you can now purge ahead and hang a left through the door with an amber roof
light outside. Pass straight through the janitor's room and out of the far

Take the left hand door in the next office and don't worry about the area
through the windows, there's nothing of interest to be found in there.
Continue through yet another door to reach the main tunnel exit leading to the
second ECM building. Infiltrate this second ECM building and pull the lever
next to the radar screen just like before. Once again, there's no need to
bother going up to the roof. If you want me to be honest, the very secret to
life, the universe and everything is located on the roof of this building, the
only problem is that it is invisible, it can't be touched, it can't smelt,
heard or tasted and I'm lying through my teeth.

There's a nearby garage-type building which is worth a visit if the need some
flash bombs or rockets.

Head towards the truck outside the next road tunnel. The nearby office boasts
a handgun, whoopie-do. Go past the truck and into the road tunnel, taking the
door on your left when faced with the large iron gates. Then it's merely a
case of passing by the fuel canisters before exiting via the next door.

                                   Section 6

Head left to the open air area commanding a beautiful bridge view. Pick off as
many baddies as you can see, it's sniper time.

                                 *Problem Point*

The road tunnel ahead of you is a dead end. Instead, you should drop from the
road onto the ledge to the right.

Head all the way to the water front to receive an objective update and a
message from Alura who needs your help again. It's all take, take, take with
this Alura character. Anyway, what are you waiting for? Swim out to the three
bridge supports and plant the bombs. The explosives place themselves
automatically, you simply need to clamber up to the bridge supports in turn.
There's the usual countdown messages to keep you aware of your progress.

How do you get out of the water? You don't. Once you've placed the third
explosive, you are rewarded with a cutscene and the return of the
double-entendre. Much to your appreciation, this level has finally reached
its conclusion.

                            Mission 8 - Zero Minus

o Breach the security perimeter of missile decommissioning facility
o Obtain photographic evidence of missile reassembly
o Disable active missile silos
o Find and capture Drake
o Infiltrate Shuttle Bay
o Escape From Blast Pit
o Stop Kiko from Boarding the Shuttle


                                  Section 1

Lovely cutscene and another double-entendre. The man is cooking on gas. Mind
you, check out Alura tinkering with the generator, she really shouldn't stand
like that. I'm sure the judge would be sympathetic.

Follow the trail to the complex. You are not supposed to trigger the alarm,
but it doesn't matter if you do, it resets after a minute. Sniper the guy in
the guard hut controlling the road barrier. In fact sniper the guy strolling
around to the left of the hut too.

Sneak past the guard hut and head for the overhead bridge/monorail thing. Take
a close look at the fire ladder. Yep, you can laser the padlock for a sneaky
entrance. The fire ladder drops down and hey presto, you're in like Flint.
Struth it's dark in here, mess with your gamma correction if it helps.

Follow the monorail/rollercoaster track into the main complex, climbing the
little ladder at the end. Remaining undetected makes things MUCH easier
for you and for the nearest casualty hospital too. Most of the soldiers are
patrolling near the two large missiles to your left. If you trip the alarm
it's not the end of the world, infact the security guards that rush to slay
you will provide you with a new high tech-weapon. It comes with a laser pen
sellotaped to the gun barrel as standard.

If you have patience, you can creep around the walkway leading left. At the
very end of the walkway is a rope which you can climb across, but only if you
move the crane hook out of the way first. Near the end of this gangway, look
into the distance below the yellow monorail engine. There's a grapple hook
awaiting your call. This drops you nicely infront of a lever which moves the
crane hook. Keep crouched at all times during this sequence.

After flicking the lever, descend the few stairs and head to your right to get
a good view of the walkway you just flew from. There's a grapple hook to take
you back up there, you can use it without attracting attention and can then
perform the Bond move by monkey climbing across the rope directly above your
head. If you've been detected and can't be bothered with all this
stealthiness, just kill everything and catch up to where we are now. Use your
PDA decrypter to bypass the red keypad and open the door, then creep across
the gangway to the far door and dart the guard if you deem it to be necessary.

Through the opposite door is a well-guarded warehouse. Creep all the way to
the far right of the gangway, but don't descend the ladder, there's a grapple
hook on the far wall. Fly across and laser the grill on your immediate right
to head through the ducting. Continue past the drop in the ducting and fall
through into a small office. Leave the office and explore the
security room if you are in need of armour.

Use the special lift to exit the level.

                                      Section 2

Head straight out of the lift and through the door facing you. Use your Felix
lighter to take a clear photo of the blue map on the desk infront of you.
Objectives are updated and the security guards have been alerted. Don't worry
about stealth anymore, kill them in a style that would make your mother faint.
In the security room, there's a pass enabling you to swipe your way through
the protected door on your left.

Across the gangway to the right is a lever to adjust the position of the
platform. Opposite the lever is a locker holding some armour plating. Now that
the yellow platform has relocated to the other side of the room, you can use
its the grapple hook for a quick ascent.

Alternatively, you can take the lonely looking door ahead to your left as you
first entered this room. Yes, you noticed the padlock, burn it by all means,
but only armour lies in wait. Pop through the door, collect yet more armour
plating from the dark grey lockers and go upstairs to re-enter the previous
room on the overhead gangway reaching the point where the grapple manoeuvre
takes you.

To make things easier for yourself you can shuffle up the catwalk and sniper
most of the guards ahead and below. Alternatively you can do a Bruce Willis
and run down the corridor shooting everything that moves. You should wear a
torn, sweaty vest if you opt for this method. Continue across the catwalk
noting that the security doors on either side are indeed secure. Take a right
at the final catwalk junction and drop down the ladder next to the mono-train.
You can also go left at the catwalk junction if you need to drop into the high
voltage cage for some supplies.

If you are tired, jump on the train and enjoy the ride. If you insist on doing
a thorough job, there are another two grapple hooks at the other side of the
train track. Use one of them in order to make the road ahead guard-free, and
use the walkways and the track to follow the train.Tackling this section
manually makes things easier at the end of the track where you would
otherwise be faced with a messy gunfight. Keep following the track and the
walkways through the pretty glass tunnel. At the end of the track you are in
danger of triggering the alarm again, but as before, if you do, you can arm
yourself with the special security forces weapon and laser their lockers for

Head to the right of the stationary train and use your handy PDA decrypter
on the door with the red keylock. Enter the hi-tech corridor and press the
metal to the floor ignoring the empty security room on your right. Enter the
fish bowl room to be greeted by the global map reading 'Targets Acquired'.
On closer inspection of the map, residents of Australia, Africa or South
America, are under no threat of attack, so if you fall into this category
you might as well let someone else deal with this whole mess.

Use your 'Euro Charge' credit card to make a deposit in the computer on the
desk facing the map. This slides back the glass protecting the red launch
button which can now be used to ignite the indoor fireworks. Finally run
around the back of the map to escape via the private lift.

The alarm is triggered and you need to be able to handle yourself. The
security room holds nothing of interest and the doors to your left and right
are sealed. As you proceed straight ahead you may have to deal with guards
rushing from the security door on the left. If this is the case then don't
forget to rifle through their personal belongings in the lockers. Return to
the main corridor and follow it round the bend to the right. There's another
gunfight to delight you in the next room, head out the opposite door when
you've cleaned-up.

Pass the security room on the right, and raid it if you've triggered the
alarm. Ooh we're getting close now. Follow the corridor round the left hand
bend and use your PDA on the red door keypad. Pass through the double wooden
doors and inspect Drake's luxurious office. Ascend the hanging stairway and
pause for artistic thought at the paintings on display. Then after 0.17
seconds, hang a right through the secret bookshelf door. Follow the hi-tech
corridor and avoid the security camera if possible. If you trigger the alarm,
no problemo ((c) Terminator 2) just kill anything that moves, using mindless
violence to intellectually overcome your opponents.

At the bottom of the stairwell is a pit of snakes, and you REALLY hate snakes.
Oh, hold on, wrong script, that's Indiana Jones. There are no snakes after
all, just a door. A door that resembles a snake if you squint... and drink a
lot. OK, it's just a regular door... but there SHOULD have been some snakes.

Perform a Quick-Save after passing through the door, this next section ain't
no mean feat. Resist the temptation to step on the huge lift platform on your
right and take the opportunity to sniper as many guys as possible on the lower
walkways. Once you've created as many widows as possible, ride the large
platform lift and if you want my advise, use the special grenade launcher gun
on the numerous baddies that appear as you descend. I've tried reasoning with
them but they just laugh at my measly Sean Connery impersonation. As the
platform descends, you have the option of disembarking on either side to the
walkway with the security door. Use this method to avoid detection, or to
deliberately get your hands on the equipment in the guards lockers.

As the platform reaches the bottom, a large gate opens and more baddies
charge. The A.I. isn't so hot at this point, as half of them run straight
into laser trip mines. The others can be dealt with at distance using the
rocket launching gun aimed high. This entire warehouse room is laced with
laser trip bombs, but that works in your favour as more guards insist on
choosing an explosive lifestyle. Oh I forgot to mention the lovely surreal
bug which causes baddies who die in obscure positions to float upwards to
heaven as they pass away.

If you haven't tripped the alarms by now, I'm impressed, but you should let
the red lights flash as there are four security rooms encircling this
warehouse and each has two padlocked lockers full of power-ups. Actually,
the last one on the left just has the one padlocked locker and it's rather
stubborn. It's ironic that padlocked lockers are more vulnerable to theft than
those that are simply shut.

At the far end of the warehouse is a red door keypad which can be bypassed
using your PDA decrypter. There's possibly some remaining trip mines, but you
should be able to pass them by jumping on crates, or failing that you can blow
them up at distance.

                               *Problem Point*

The area past the warehouse door appears to be a dead end. There are four
lifts, and it will come as no surprise that the way forward is via the lift
that is sealed off and labelled 'Out Of Order'.

Crouch to enter this lift and you will probably notice... nothing. This is
because it is dark. Whip out your specs (green nightvision mode) and have a
closer inspection of the lift roof. Yes, a trapdoor, and you should climb
through it onto the top of the lift carriage. Once in position ontop of the
lift, it's grapple time (this is similar, but less funky than 'Hammer Time'
(c) M.C. Hammer). There's no way of climbing the lift cables, but look up to
locate the metal hooks. Note that there are two of them. The lower one is
useless, but the upper one will help you out. It will allow you to ascend onto
the roof of yet another lift at which point you will come under fire. This is
a good opportunity to make a fool of yourself. A hail of bullets will fly past
your ears as you stand there in your shades, holding a mobile phone.

After regaining your confidence you'll spot another grapple hook only just
out of reach. After the short grapple, you have the choice of climbing the
ladder or entering the abandoned lift at the other end the cage-like room. If
you take the ladder you can drop onto the defunct lift and make your final
grapple, if you enter the lift itself, you just need to climb through the roof
trap door before performing the same grapple move.

                                   Section 3

Exit the lift (mind the step) and collect the equipment on the table in the
far right corner before using your PDA decrypter on the red door keypad.
Welcome to the 'Launch Control' room, step right inside for an action cutscene
and notice the effectiveness of the 'Gantry Control' switch.

After falling into the blast pit, kill the troops to trigger the first launch.
As in real life, the klaxon makes it easy to panic and difficult to
concentrate but all you have to do is to run into the open security room and
raid the lockers whilst you wait for the missile launch. Although you'll go
snowblind for a few seconds, you'll discover that the security room door
closed behind you, protecting you from the blast.

This is not a good point to put the kettle on, as you will now find yourself
back in the blast area with a handful of ninjas to kill. In the background,
the nasty lady shouts negative instructions to her ninja henchmen which
doesn't help your nerves. I explained to her that the nasty lady in a bond
movie is certain to die (like the Star Trek extra that stupidly agrees to beam
down to the planet surface) but this only made her more angry. 'DH' explains
that on the more challenging difficulty levels, this area is the perfect place
to use your spinning briefcase to mince the ninjas.

Another launch is about to take place, so you should run into the next
'bunker' room with the red beacon above the door, it's the only door available
to you. If you've got time to laser the padlocks and steal some more things
that don't belong to you, then all well and good, but as before, once the
launch takes place, you will find yourself back in the blast pit.

This next sequence is time-restricted, so don't spend too much time enjoying
the scenery and you certainly shouldn't choose this moment to tuck into your
packed-lunch. To put an end to Kiko, enter the 'Control Room' lift in the
centre of the blast pit. It was the door through which she was laughing at you
a few moments ago when she thought you would fry. Press the button to bring
life to the lift. At the top of the lift, don't mess about, climb a ramp and
locate 'Shuttle 3', Kiko's chosen escape route. As the door closes behind her,
flick the 'Gantry Control' switch next to the door to give her a taste of her
own medicine.

Stick the kettle on, open your packed-lunch and watch the two-part cutscene.

                             Mission 9 - Re-Entry

o Find and disarm nuclear missiles
o Disarm Missile 1
o Disarm Missile 2
o Disarm Missile 3
o Disarm Missile 4
o Find and eliminate Drake
o Find escape pod


Welcome to space, breathe normally, and watch the cutscene.

You've been handed the latest Armani space-suit and you are looking dapper
but you need to familiarise yourself with the new environment and get to
grips with the reduced gravity. This means that you can jump higher, further,
er and slower.

Go straight ahead and open the door. Directly infront of you is a guy
ascending a lift. It's surprisingly easy to kill the space engineers with
your laser, but it does take some time to recharge if you go beserk. It's easy
to be trigger happy as the space baddies take 8 minutes to drop to the floor
and die. Alright, it's slightly faster than that but I'm having trouble
thinking properly in this weird atmosphere. The lift ahead continues to rise
to the 'Missile Control' area and you are too late to catch it.

No big deal. To your left, next to the window is a
space-vat-canister-silo-thingy. With the reduced gravity, you'll have no
problem jumping ontop of it. Now jump up ontop of the next S.V.C.S.T. and
finally onto the platform with no identifiable features for me to describe.
Take a long running-jump to the platform across the room and hit the
use/active button to fill up on space juice (Jetpack refill). If you've drank
enough space juice, you can HOLD down the jump key to boost yourself upwards
(there's an indicator built into your space suit which can be monitored at the
bottom of your screen).

Armed with this knowledge, step to the back of the platform and look upwards to
catwalk above. You can do it. Remember to hold down the jump key and drink
more space juice if you are not successful first time. Or second time. If you
haven't made it by the twelth attempt, you have probably drank too much space
juice, so you should lie down, close your eyes and watch the multicoloured
dragonflies dance on the bouncy concrete.

Pass through the doorways to the 'Communications Centre' and kill any guards
in slo-mo. The 'Missile Control' room is to your right at the T-junction.
It's so sweet that the baddies clearly signpost any area in need of sabotage.
As you pass through this doorway you will receive the 'five minute curtain
call'. From now on, the mission is timed. Shoot the glass in the viewing
alcove infront of you and jump down to the central circular mesh platform to
defeat the space baddies.

This is where things go horribly Quake II. Activate the four 'Defusal Access'
consoles surrounding the mesh platform in order to open the corresponding
missile panels above. If you prefer, you could activate one at a time to keep
track of where you are up to. Now you need the eloquence of a ballet dancer
to boost jump to the accessible panels near the top of each missile. When you
successfully reach such panels, you need to pull one lever, followed by the
other before finally hitting the defuse button. Does the society we live in
really manufacture weapons of mass destruction with big green buttons marked

You may have defused one or two, but you'll need to drop down below the mesh
platform to top up on space juice at some point. If you are as bad at ballet
as I am, you'll need to return for at least 10 pints of space juice at the
refill station below. Where's Billy Elliot when you need him?

Defuse all four missiles by activating their 'Defusal Access' then boost jump
to the corresponding access panels near the top of the missiles. Twiddle with
the levers, knobs and buttons to put an end to each missile in turn. To save
time it's best to tackle the missiles in pairs, jumping from one to the other
takes far less time than returning to the refill point at the bottom.
This all sounds relatively straight-forward, but as you have no doubt
discovered... it's not.

Now you are instructed to find an escape pod. As if you are going to leave
without killing the villain? I think not. There's a doorway on the same level
as the mesh platform signed 'Locked During Launch Sequence'. As logic would
suggest, it's now open. Continue through the doorway ahead and jump up to
climb the short ladder. Advance down the corridor and press the blue button to
the right of the door to open it.

The following cutscene leaves you with no doubt that you've reached the end
of game boss, Drake. Thankfully, Drake is a realistic Bond baddie as opposed
to a typical 'First-Person Shooter' 9-foot mechanical armoured beefcake with
rocket launchers and lightning strikes at his endless disposal. If you were
low on ammo, worry ye not, you get a free replenish courtesy of Drake. What a

You've only got the space laser but it's sufficient enough to kill Drake and
pierce the suits of his space henchmen. In fact while you're at it, pierce
Brosnan too. I hold my head in shame for that one. The recommended tactic
is to take refuge in the 'Escape Pod' corridor to the right and zap Drake as
he floats like a butterfly (not stings like a bee) around the corridor

Once Drake is space dust, you do not have much time to play with. Exit via the
door with the 'Escape Pod' sign above it, the clue is in the question. Press
the blue door panel to spark the final cutscene.


Hope you enjoyed it as much as I did. If you have the patience to play it a
second time, you'll notice grapple hooks in positions that you never knew
were humanely possible!!!


An attractive Bond girl walks into a bar. She says, "I think I'll have a
double entendre, please". So the barman gives her one.

   Q. I can't jump through a smashed window! What shall I do?
   A. You have to do a "ducking-jump". You jump, duck in mid-air and move
forward at the same time. You'll get the hang of it soon.

   Q. My night-vision goggles arn't working. What shall I do?
   A. Lowering the screen resolution may help.

   Q. I've run out of bullets. What shall I attack enemies with?
   A. I'm afraid that you'll have to use your fists, or if you have any
grenades, use them if possible.

   Q. My controls on Bond are playing up! What shall I do?
   A. Play around with the mouse sensitivy may help.

                    James bond 007: Nightfire Review

Storyline  8 out of 10
As you will know, your name is Bond, James Bond. You work for MI6 and have
been sent on dangerous missions to capture your newest enemy, Drake. It
will not be easy! However, no need to worry; you will have your team mates
supporting you all the way through!

Graphics  8 out of 10
The graphics for me is very good. It is actually brilliant almost! It is very
realistic. On the other hand, the graphics can be really S L O W when you shot
an enemy or move. That does not happen all the time, though. It can be
absoluty S L O W sometimes; so slow that your computer can crash, but do not
worry, that is not common.

Sound  7 out of 10
The sound of this game is good as well.

Weapons  10 out of 10
One thing you do not have to worry about is weapons. You have plenty of GREAT
weapons and a nice arsenal of them. (If you run out of weapons, you can always
use your fists!)

Gameplay/missions  8 out of 10
I have to say, the missions are great! They are all long enough, have good
objectives to do and are just great! The bad thing is; there are not enough of
them! Plus that there is nothing else to do once youíve completed single
player except go on multiplayer. Except from that, all the missions are
challenging. It was really cool the first time I played it and I am sure it
will be for you!

Controls  6 out of 10
The controls part of this game really let me down! They are really dodgy!
For instance, the duck left and right buttons were useless. What was the
real point in actually having them??? Other than that, the controls were
alright to me although the mouse sensitivity was really dodgy.

Multiplayer  9 out of 10
Multiplayer mode is absolutely great! There are good maps, characters, weapons
to choose from. Plus, the best thing about it is, you can play it online!
However; some servers tend to be S L O W

Should you buy it? Probably
This game overall is very good. I think it is a decent first person shooter
and is really worth playing. This game has a reasonable price too and is
worth the money! It costs about £13 to £23. The multiplayer and single player
are both good. If you donít like THIS game, youíre CRAZY!

--------------------------------14. Patches----------------------------------

There is now a NEW patch available. It offers new multiplayer maps and fixs
bugs and common problems.

However, lately there has been a BIG problem. If you download and install the
new patch, multiplayer gets messed up with an error. The error message is:

client.dll is different the server you are connecting to.

Therefore, not many players apply for the patch.

If you do apply for the patch and get these problems, there are two ways to
solve it.

The first way is to reinstall the game.

The other way is a solution to it: (sent in my "RollingSkull")

Go to the Nightfire\backup directory in your Nightfire install folder, copy
the client.dll out of there and replace the Nightfire\bond\cl_dlls\client.dll
with it. You may want to back up the client.dll you're replacing, but I highly
doubt you'll need to.

I don't have the patch installed; it's up to you if you want it installed!

                      **NEW PATCH ALERT - OUT 10th August!!!**
