This unnoficial James Bond game from the movie with the same name was a bit of a disappointment. The graphic layout is nice enough with some interesting architecture and nicely shaded details like columns or oriental awnings, and featuring James Bond in this exotic setting predicted that it would be an exciting game. Not at all, it made my yawn a lot. You move from place to place, finding objects and using them here and there. The problem is the game is too static, almost no action, and the few problem solving is simple, the game ends rather quickly.
