Review by Tom Allen
½ Star out of 4

Racing around in a BMX, Aston Martin, or Lotus as James Bond sounds like a lot of fun. The concept is good, but if it weren't for the James Bond music and voice-overs from Q, I think this game would only be seen as a poor man's Driver.

Actually, it probably has that reputation anyway. There are no real races. Instead, you drive through a number of missions, shooting people, helicopters, land mines, tanks, and other cars. Driver 2 is innovative in that you can get out of your car and continue a mission on foot. 007 Racing would have benefited from that idea as well.

The game is too simplistic and needs more carefully designed "wow" moments. 007 Racing is never suspenseful. The game is merely a collection of Bond set pieces without any Bond story to make it interesting.

The controls are not bad, but reverse acceleration is not as instantly responsive as one would hope for a game that is supposed to be so action-packed.

007 Racing does not have a practice mode or time trial, so those players looking for a more racing-oriented experience should look elsewhere.
