Top James Bond Video Games to Get You Started

James Bond is the perfect video game protagonist. His adventures take him all over the world, facing off against some of the most evil men (and women) in an attempt to stop their change-the-world, topple-the-government plans again and again. This year is going to be another huge year for the double-oh agent, with much anticipated film Skyfall being released this October, (GameCube, James Bond 007, James Bond 007: Blood Stone, James Bond 007: Everything or Nothing, PS2, PS3, PSP, Wii, Xbox)

-I think I liked Nightfire better than all of them, I also kinda liked The World is Not enough.. ^_^

Nightfire is easily one of the best ever bond games.

I prefer the original N64 Goldeneye over the remake. Just something about the new one doesn't appeal to me...

Wow, N64 Goldeneye did not make the list.
Don't bother reading this article.

Goldeneye was more revered by FPS enthusiasts and for its multiplayer though. As a Bond game, a 007 experience, it isn't anything special. Certainly not on the cinematic level as EoN.

Good fun for splitscreen MP, but not what I'd reach for when looking for the most authentic, pure Bond experience.

Well i guess it is about new bond players, so i could see why the n64 version isn't on the list as the controls imo haven't held up.

Everything or Nothing is really cool.
Star actors, original writers, pre-credit, original song, helicopter chases, car races, tanks, gadgets, coop, adversarial, split screen, stealth, gadgets, online (not active anymore obviously). Really full featured.
It even has some of the so called "exotic" gameplay sequences that cinematic games of today love to feature, a free fall near a waterfall and other stuff like that...
Now the gameplay feels a bit stiff, but for its time it was awesome and it hold up pretty well.

My second fave would be Agent Under Fire. It doesn't have any actor likeness or pre-credits and song, but I think it's the most fun of the Bond FPS.
It's very short but the pacing is high and the mission design is always entertaining.
Nightfire feels more authentic. It uses Brosnan's likeness (but not his voice), it has a credit sequence with a song, and the multiplayer is a bit more fleshed out I think than Agent Under Fire.
However the mission design is not as consistently exciting as Agent Under Fire, and it's about as short.
Both games are close but I think Agent was more memorable.

But Everything or Nothing is hands down the best.

As for GoldenEye, sure it was milestone for console FPS, but it's hard to age well in such a competitive genre.
The mission design and gameplay is really dated even though levels are a bit more open than present games.

Everything or Nothing ftw. It did so many things right as a third person action game for its time. Under-rated to a fault.

Wow,no Goldeneye 64?that's the best bond game ever made....
