The Spy Who loved Me is clearly based around the same game-engine used in Licence to Kill, although this time they really perfected the complete package. While the visuals in the previous game were already pretty good, now everything is even more crisp and vibrant, with lots of colour, giving it an almost console-like quality. Scrolling also seems a little better, with no apparent slow down at all. The animation has been spruced up significantly. The way the car spins when driving over oil spills for example. And just look at those little traffic cones fly when you hit them with your Lotus, just marvellous. Everything moves with a certain grace. It's hard to put my finger on it.
