“The name is Bond, James Bond…”

A View to a Kill is a text-adventure game based on the Bond film of the same name. Your mission is to stop a plot to destroy Silicon Valley. Since this is a text adventure, there are no graphics or sounds. You start the game by going to retrieve a microchip from Agent 003 in the mountains of Russia. But 003 has already been killed, and Russian forces are closing in, intending to take you out as well.

The first thing you will realize while playing the game is that each move you make causes time to pass, and that after enough time passes without you doing the right things, you will be killed or fail the mission in some way. Oh, I should mention that if you type in something that the game’s parser doesn’t understand, it counts as a move, too, which is extremely frustrating. So while you’re trying to figure out what to do, you’ll end up dying countless times because the parser didn’t understand you.

The second thing you will have realized is that the parser is complete junk. I figured out how to save the game by typing “Save game” but then I couldn’t figure out a way to load a saved game. I tried “Load game”, “Restore game”, “Resume game”, etc., and the game said that it didn’t understand me. Oh, and then I found out through a walkthrough that in order to find out that Agent 003 is wearing a watch, you have to type in “Examine 003 carefully”, because if you type in only “Examine 003”, you won’t see that he is wearing a watch. How about “Delete stupid game from my computer carefully”?

Since I wasn’t getting very far, I used a walkthrough to get past the first part – only to find out that the rest of the game is the same as well. You’ll wander around, trying to get your goal accomplished for the area, while some bad guy lurks in the shadows waiting to blow you away if you don’t accomplish it in time. I didn’t bother finishing the whole game as the first parts were frustrating enough to turn me away.

Final remarks:

This game could have been interesting, if the parser were more developed and the game didn’t try to punish you by killing you almost every time that you made a wrong move. As it stands, I give it a 1 out of 5 rating and would only recommend the game to die-hard text-adventure fans who have a lot of patience.
