Op-Ed: Is '007 Legends' suppose to be a joke?

'007 Legends' is an upcoming video game that will retell six classic Bond films with an over-arching narrative. Yet Activsion and Eurocom have based the first two missions on the worst Bond films. (007 Legends, Culture, Industry, Retro)

I am pretty sure they are trying to get a film from every Bond actor in, so there is no arguing against On Her Majesty's Secret Service if this is the logic the developers themselves are using.

I can understand not liking Moonraker... it is a kind of weird Bond film.

All in all I just hope its a good Bond game.

Roger Moore is my hero!!! Seriously, no sarcasm... he's my favorite Bond. I wish they'd make a 007 game centered just around him as Bond. But they have to have the cheese factor that Moore possesses... can't believe he's still alive.

I really want to say that Activision is a joke, but that would be mean.

So do we get to play as the Bonds that were used in those films or not.

I would love to play Pierce Bronsan again, I think it would be stupid to have Daniel Craig as Bond in all of them when I bet most of them won't be his films. I mean his Bond is just too serious to take part in those classic Bond films despite some being pretty bad. One of the reasons I never enjoyed Golden eye reloaded...the main one was that it was Activision

Can't they just give Bond back to EA, least they made some good Bond games after Rares Goldeneye. Nightfire was amazing and even had it's own theme song :)

The game is about Craig's Bond... they are redoing all the scenarios to fit in with his Bond universe.

Why the hell would they do that

You don't ruin or change the Bond films by giving it to a completely differne't Bond, especialy one who is more like Jason Bourne then James Bond.

Honestly Activison are just stupid

Honestly, I like On Her Majesty's Secret Service... it's better than a lot of the Roger Moore movies, for example... Moonraker is awful, Live and Let Die is awful, Roger Moore is like Pierce Brosnan. A great Bond with awful movies.

I can understand someone not liking OHMSS (it's one of my favorites,) but holy shit, how could you ever think it was even close to as bad as Moonraker???

Lazenby wasn't incredible in the role, but at least his movie didn't feature Bond wrestling a giant rubber snake.

Why simply not put Sean Connery which is everybody´s favorite Bond in the game!?

If you gonna make a game called " 007 Legends " you better put the Legend himself in the main role.
