Playing James Bond should never make you yawn.

Niiicceee...

...While the game covers films set as far back as the 1970s, the official IP stance is that "there is only one James Bond," so to make things work around that idea, all missions have been retooled to work in the present day, and all Bonds have been changed to Daniel Craig. The "Legend" part of 007: Legends, it seems, refers to the movies themselves, not the famous line of actors who've donned the role.

*blank stare*

No Roger Moore?

Hmm, looks interesting, still have to find a copy of bloodstone and maybe get Golden Eye Reloaded, I played the shit outta the original (I was 6 and beating grown men at it, I could aim like a boss)

Also looking forward to the movie Skyfall! Haven't seen a James Bond movie in a while!

I hate 007 games, they spend to much time trying to recreate Goldeneye instead of delivering a great James Bond experience. I'm a huge fan of the Ian Fleming novels, the Daniel Craig movies are crap.

I'm not really liking the sound of this game... Experience points and a QTE boss? No thanks.

Agreed, no Moore? No eyebrow?

No interest!

This could be awesome actually, hopefully they leave out the Daniel Craig movies and focus on the original series!

As long as they remember that shooting controls have been improved by the industry since Goldeneye, the multiplayer could be interesting.

If they include bots, then I'll pick this up in a heartbeat.
It annoys the hell out of me when there are no bots in a multiplayer shooter.

This is borderline table flipping time...

My friends sometimes talk about wanting to play Goldeneye again, but without a satisfactory modern equivalent that won't make you want to throw up, we're stuck with that feeling.

That's somewhat of a conflicting statement. Less so when it comes to Quantum (although that was quite adversely affected by the writer's strike), but heavily so when it comes to Casino Royale.

OT: Wise choice, what with Craig being the best Bond and all. (Prod-prod-prodding. But seriously, he's fucking fantastic. I can understand people perhaps preferring Connery but the rest don't fucking cut it.)

Still, let's cut the crap, this'll be shit and we all know it.

A Bond game should be a mix between Deus Ex and Hitman, not this lacklustre shooter nonsense. Hopefully it'll do so badly Activision relinquish the license and give it to someone (like Rocksteady) who knows how to develop a game based on an existing property.

A man can dream.

I still haven't played Goldeneye Reloaded yet lol so I'll have to have a run through that one first

No all Bond Battle Royal?
Guess this is one title I'll just... Live, and let Die.

Why so deliberately focus on "only one Bond!" and then choose one of the worst Bonds? ... Oh well ...

pffft. I prefer the fan theory that James Bond is a codename given to several loud, womanizing agents over the years. Some were tough and rough, some were smooth and witty, some dressed as a clown.
