Until Mr Craig came along with his knobbly face and killer's stare, the James Bond series was becoming more than a little stale. Pierce Brosnan was a capable Bond, but his character belonged to the old order of suave, wise-cracking secret agents who would just as soon bed the local floozy as take a beating for Queen and country. The whole franchise needed a revamp and a swift injection of fresh ideas.
The same scenario exists for Bond's foray into games. Across pretty much every format, 007 has trundled along the same generic path of clichéd design for far too long. The recent silver screen reboot could be just the inspiration needed for game developers to turn out fresher takes on MI6's finest.
