Retro Game Friday: Nightfire

This week for Retro Game Friday I’m covering one of my favorite Bond games. It’s James Bond 007: Nightfire!

Plot: The plot is okay, it’s a pretty stereotypical Bond plot so it doesn’t have that great a story. Nonetheless that wasn’t the main draw of the game for me at the time.

Gameplay: The gameplay of the single player campaign was okay, but pretty lackluster. The Multiplayer allowed for Bots, which was a rarity in that day and age and allowed me and my best friend to play with each other rather than against one another. I remember playing with him for hours when I was younger, although I do remember thinking that it would be better if the Bots were better programmed.

Art: The art has aged really poorly since then, but back then it was pretty darn good.

Music: Classic Bond music, not much else need be said.

Overall: A fun game, although it was best played with a friend.

For those who like: FPS Games, Bond Games, Multiplayer.

Not for those who don’t like: Any of the above.

Movie Monday: Mrs. Doubtfire

This week for Movie Monday I’ve got a movie that I loved when I was younger. It’s Mrs. Doubtfire!

Plot Synopsis:┬áDaniel Hillard is a freelance voice actor in San Francisco. Though a devoted father to his children Lydia, Chris, and Natalie, his wife Miranda considers him unreliable. One day, Daniel quits his job and returns home to throw a lavish birthday party for Chris despite Miranda’s objections, creating a situation with their neighbors. Miranda files for divorce, and the judge gives sole custody of the children to her, but tells Daniel if he can find a steady job and a suitable residence within three months, he will agree to share joint custody…

Plot: The plot is pretty great, and while it’s a little cheesy by today’s standards it was quite impressive when it first entered theaters. That being said it’s no action flick. So if you want a heart-pounding thriller, you’re going to be disappointed with Mrs. Doubtfire.

Characters: Robin Williams as Daniel is amazing, and the entire cast is quite great. One thing I did forget about this movie was that Pierce Brosnan was in it, although I’ve never had the same memory for movies as I did for other forms of stories.

Cinematography: There aren’t any amazing special effects, but the film is still well done.

Music: I don’t remember it, sorry.

Overall: A must watch movie, probably one of the greatest of the last 30 years.

For those who like: Comedy, Excellent Plot, Awesome Cast of Characters, Fantastic Cinematography.

Not for those who don’t like: Any of the above.
