James Bond has been absent from the shooter scene of late. Isn't it time that the video game franchise lived another day?
We should see his return but the thing is they wouldn't be the same There is two problems 1) Crappy developers always work on them 2) They try and tie into the upcoming films plot with the current Bond Only thing I can think of is if someone like NaughtyDog for their new IP do a Spy game and take their inspiration off James Bond like they did with Indiana Jones for Uncharted. Would be awesome if the games had their own theme song aswell.
Yep they need a good developer and they should go retro and base it of a Sean Connery bond, Aston Martin DB5, vodka Martini, pretty ladies, and some old school charm.
Pierce brosnan ftw
Agent Under Fire, and Nightfire were awesome. Just make another bond game like those.
& Goldeneye, agent under fire was meh, nightfire was boss
From Russia With Love was pretty sick, used to love playing PvP split-screen with the jetpacks and a golden gun!
Sony makes 007 movies! Why don't they make the games themselves too?
Get Rocksteady to work on one! :)
The licensing for James Bond is so screwed. Just look at Goldeneye. The reason that awful "Goldeneye 007" came out a few years ago was because all parties who hold a stake in the license could not agree so a lot of the story and characters had to change. At the time MGM, Microsoft (Rare), Nintnedo and Activision all owned rights to the game. I think a movie tie in CAN work if it is done right. Sadly the last good movie tie in was Goldeneye. I agree with everyone else it needs to have a good developer but also needs to have development time and not just rushed.
Forget Goldeneye, Everything or nothing was the best bond game!
Agreed!!! It had a solid driving engine (Need for speed underground) and the 3rd person mechanics were perfect for this.... goldeneye is awesome but tbh it's overrated due to the Internets over the top nostalgia for it. it's a great game don't get me wrong but lets face it, we know how the Internet works.
Totally agree man! Willem Dafoe as the villain too!
Problem is most of the James Bond games previously was nothing but a COD xerox and it doesn't look different since Activision is the one who's making the game.
Give James bond to naughty dog.
With the return of Monolith Games I would prefer to see a return of 'No One Lives Forever'. Best spy game since Goldeneye.
I love GoldenEye but it might be better to be a none FPS. Bond has a ton of possibilities with limitless source material.
