PALGN writes: "begun spiraling into fantasy, Casino Royale and Daniel Craig entered the scene in 2006. The result was a more serious, dramatic and critically praised 007, but one that would never return to the swathe of one-liners and three or more girls a film. Many fans breathed a sigh of relief. One question, however, remained unanswered: after the success of RARE's GoldenEye for the Nintendo 64 in 1997, why weren't games companies falling over themselves to turn Casino Royale into the best selling videogame of the season?
The question, of course, had gained saliency after a string of Bond games that reflected their film's critical success (or rather, a lack of it). From Russia With Love satisfied some diehard fans' desire for an authentic Bond adventure, but GoldenEye: Rogue Agent's attempt to capture Bond videogame fans merely antagonised most. With Activision's purchase of the Bond license in 2006, many hoped for a reversal of fortunes for the virtual incarnation of their favourite superspy. But then, silence. Until now."
