What would James Bond do? That’s the question players will answer in every dramatic moment of James Bond 007: Everything or Nothing, as the world’s greatest secret agent returns in his fifth interactive adventure under the EA GAMES™ brand.

Trivia
The estimated production budget was $3,000,000.

The company that Harry Saltzman and Albert R. Broccoli, the original producers of the James Bond series, set up to produce the films was called "Eon", which was rumored to be an acronym for "Everything or Nothing." However, sources inside the Bond camp over the years have denied that "Eon" stood for anything.

This game featured the long awaited return of Jaws, a villain from The Spy Who Loved Me (1977) and Moonraker (1979).

In the "Mardi Gras Mayhem" level, at the beginning part when you are driving to the park to meet Mya pay attention to the buildings on the road, one of them is a Phoenix Corporation building (from Nightfire). Similar to the Malprave Industries (from Agent Under Fire) boat in Nightfire.

Mistakes
After Bond has tried to save 003 he returns to his safe house and 003's bike is parked in the yard (it was not there before). 003 cannot move the bike as he is dead, but Q says that 003 did park the bike.
