* BestLevelEver: The Pontchartrain Bridge. Bond hops on a motorcycle and powers his way across the Lake Pontchartrain Causeway, the ''longest bridge in the US'' in about 3 minutes flat, and the game does an amazing job of convincing you just how suicidally fast you're going. Over the course of the trip, you've got the chance to [[UnderTheTruck power slide under a fuel tanker]] and ramp over the watery divide to drive [[CrazyAwesome against]] [[TooDumbToLive traffic.]] Throw in motorcycle-riding henchmen, the ability to dispatch them with a shotgun, and Jaws driving a rig containing [[spoiler: the nanobots that will [[HarsherInHindsight destroy New Orleans' levies and flood the city]],]] and you've got an amazingly badass level.
** Escaping Diavolo's villa using only GoodOldFisticuffs is NintendoHard in the very best way. The Badass [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SCv-_1lE_J8 music]] is just gravy at this point.
* BetterThanCanon: The game was Brosnan's final time playing James Bond, and ultimately was much more well-received than his final film appearance in ''Film/DieAnotherDay''.
* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YSntWgfjq54 title song]] by R&B singer Mya.
** Not to mention the steamy [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9lDxO-1FLpc jazz version]].
** Also Sean Callery's [[http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL18CDFDD42584F7C8 score.]]
* EvilIsSexy: Katya. This is to be expected when she's played by Heidi Klum.
* HarsherInHindsight: One of the missions involves Bond preventing Diavolo from using his nanobots to destroy the levees in New Orleans. AWKWARD.
* {{Narm}} / NarmCharm: In the usual spirit of "BondOneLiner's" you either enjoy a few but one too many [[IncrediblyLamePun bad puns]] test the average players limits. This game has so many of them you're either groaning every time you hear a new one or laughing at the fact the writers added this amount of bad puns into a single game.
* ParanoiaFuel: Using the nano suit after enemies have already engaged you will make cause them to nervously look around for you. Walking while crouched makes your movement silent so you can go anywhere without being seen or heard (until your batteries die, that is).
** "''I just saw something!''"
* ThatOneLevel: "Escape through wall" in the very first mission has probably resulted in "controller through television", at least the PS2 version, as no clues - visual or otherwise - suggest that the way to accomplish this goal is to return to the location where you started the mission. The training level that follows also qualifies if you happen to hit the PS2 glitch that makes it impossible to shoot the targets after you crouch.
