* The game opens with a original GunBarrel, then segues into Bond spying on the exchange of a nuke.

* Completing any of the Platinum Medal requirements. They're very, very fun, but you really have to stretch your brain.

* You can score yourself a minor Awesome Moment in "Red Underground," and here's how: If you use the Q-Spider, you may encounter an "invisible" guard who's just standing around by the next part of the level. If you're far enough from him, and skilled enough, you can give him a sleeper-dart ''blind'' (i.e. without locking on).
