The Best James Bond Games That Aren’t Goldeneye

As Bond mashup 007 Legends hits consoles and we await the release of Sam Mendes’ cinematic take on Bond with Skyfall, I thought it’d be a good opportunity to look back on the 007 video game franchise.

The MI6 agent has had a varied relationship with video games, with Goldeneye still being the golden example to beat. Arguably no game since has been quite as popular or highly regarded, but some have been great all the same. So rather than retread ground and tell you why Goldeneye is the best Bond game – cause let’s face it, you already know why – I thought I’d talk about the other good Bond games. Presented in order of release, here are the Bond games you should play which are not Goldeneye.

Funny, I have played much Goldeneye. Was a HUGE Perfect Dark fan.

ape0071879d ago

as legendary as ge007 was, perfect dark was better in everyway possible, except for those who did not like the non bond futuristic style

Lionheart3771879d ago

Totally agree. Couldn't exist without Goldeneye, though.

GoldenEye nostalgia aside. Nightfire on PS2 was the better 007 game back in the day.

I Loved Goldeneye as a kid but going back to the game, it just hasn't aged all that well, in fact now that I'm older and have had the chance to play older generations of games,

All Goldeneye seems to be is a more simpler version of old PC psuedo 3d shooters like Wolfenstein but in souped up 64 bit graphics, also the controls are freaking awkward. When you compare Goldeneye to PC shooters of the time like Quake , Unreal and Half-Life it just hasn't held up as strong. And believe it all not it's influence on modern FPS is no where near as apparent as games like Half-Life or even Halo for that matter.

Had a blast with Nightfire on the PS2, it had 4 player split-screen :)

Banok1879d ago

This is what I was going to say.

goldeneye had 4 player, but nightfire had bots which made a huge difference.

nostalgia aside nightfire was a better game. but for its time nothing beats goldeneye ;)

Loved Nightfire. Until then, no other Bond game had the magic that Goldeneye had IMO, but this game came a lot closer to it than people thought it would. I remember my brother and I trying to take each other out with the heat seeking rocket launcher that had controllable bullets. Had a freakin blast with those.

Definitely my favorite post goldeneye game.

So many hours were waisted on 4 player split screen. Not to mention as the article said, the single player was just as awesome.

Loved the mp level with the ski lifts that went around the 2 main bases. (not the one that went over the canyon, although that one was sweet too) And the freaking remote control rockets and the brief case sentry gun. And oddjobs hat.

Come to think of it I think I liked this game better than golden eye.

From Russia with love is also a pretty decent bond game.

vortis1879d ago

It was good but it was a downgrade from Everything or Nothing.

They replaced the fighting with QTEs and the driving/vehicle segments were far less inspired.

The multiplayer was better but there was never anyone to play with and they removed the co-op...absolutely the worst thing they could have done.

ape0071879d ago

the best bond game after ge007 was undoubtedly The World Not Enough N64 version, amazing game, the ps1 version wasn't near as good, it's actually a different build and engine than the N64 game

Ashunderfire861879d ago

No way!!! That game was a downgrade. I say Agent Under Fire and the Goldeneye Reboot was the best bond games. I love the grappling hooks in the multiplayer of Agent Under Fire, they were very fun to use lol!!! Goldeneye reboot went back to its roots from the original, which is still the best one. Perfect Dark hands down beats them all including that stupid Perfect Dark Zero launch game.
