Tomorrow Never Dies is a third-person shooter based on the Bond film of the same name. Developed by Black Ops and published by Electronic Arts, it was released in 1999 for the Sony PlayStation . It is the first 007 game of many that was published by Electronic Arts since acquiring the James Bond licence. This game marks the fouth appearance of Pierce Brosnan's James Bond, although the voice talents of Adam Blackman were used. Unlike previous Bond games which were all first-person shooters, Tomorrow Never Dies broke away from the mold as the first third-person shooter. Also, notably, Tomorrow Never Dies does not contain a multiplayer component. The game received poor reviews for a number of technical flaws, poor control, and overambitious design.
Bond begins outside a Soviet Radar base, signals for its destruction, and then escapes on skiis. While on skiis, Bond can perform a number of tricks to gain style points as well as using the ski poles to attack his persuers. Reaching the edge of a cliff, Bond uses his parachute to escape.
