Released on the year of James Bond’s 50th birthday, 007 Legends looked to chronicle some of the superspy’s most critical missions in one game. See? You’re a little enticed. Alas, somewhere between its early design phase and its release, the newest title in the litany of Bond games took a nosedive."
