The Frustrating Lack of Good Bond Games

1up says, "Like any other big franchise, videogames based on James Bond have not been in short supply over the years. There have, however, been only a few really good Bond games, a fact that is consistently disappointing to big fans of the series like myself.

In theory, 007 Legends seemed like a fine opportunity to commemmorate the film franchise's 50-year anniversary and set a positive precedent for where Bond games will go from here. (Even something on par with the quality of the Bond 50 movie collection, imperfect as it is, would have been welcome considering how long it's been since we've seen a high-quality Bond game.) As a celebration of the series, it didn't even require original concepts -- those behind it were free to cherry-pick the best moments from decades of movies, meaning the hard part should have been nailing the mechanics, identifying the series' best moments, and finding a way to pull them together in a cohesive manner. None of that happened."

The story is too old to be commented.

007 blood stone was a pretty good game :/

Blood Stone was okay but a huge step backward from Everything or Nothing, which was like, the ultimate Bond game. It had helicopters, jeeps, train chases, motorcycle chases, car races, car chases, fight scenes, stealth, and epic set-pieces perfect for Bond moments.

It would just be nice if they could go back and make Everything or Nothing but make it better. It seems crazy that they can't just make a game like a PS2 era title and just make the graphics better.

There should be a LEGO James Bond game - 24 movies to pull scenes from.. could be awesome!

Obviously this "journalist" hasn't heard of Nightfire. Favorite game for original xbox, along with Halo 2 :D
