The first Bond adventure for the Nintendo DS
As the DS first 007 adventure and the only first-person shooter available on Nintendos new handheld GoldenEye: Rogue Agent is sure to shift thousands of copies before another trigger-happy blaster steals its thunder. But if youre looking for a Bond game as slick as its N64 namesake, this isnt it.
For 30 quid, Rogue Agent offers little more than an afternoons distraction; the heros health recharges after only a few seconds, and enemy assailants are so stupid they cant put up a decent fight. But thats nothing compared to actually playing the game, which requires the use of a combination of the DS touch screen and shoulder buttons a bewildering set-up thats almost impossible to use and requires several extra thumbs and the steely grip of a Burmese gibbon.
