Product Description

Amazon.co.uk Review

Finally the James Bond games have done what the films should’ve done years ago: they’ve gone back to the ‘60s. From Russia with Love doesn’t seem to have all that much to do with the film of the same name (it seems an odd choice anyway since it was the least gadget heavy of all the movies and even vaguely realistic in parts) but it is highly evocative of Connery era Bond in general.

Even ignoring the ‘60s angle, the fact that the game is obviously trying to distance itself from the risible GoldenEye: Rogue Agent is another obvious boon. It’s a third person adventure much more in keeping with Everything or Nothing, with a similar mix of on foot and vehicle combat, with particular emphasis seeming to be given to the jetpack from Thunderball.

Although Bond looks and sounds (thanks to newly recorded dialogue by the man himself) like Sean Connery the game also has a role-playing element where you can customise your character according to your preferred style of play. There’s also an online and split screen multiplayer mode for you to compare these settings with friends.

Alas there doesn’t yet seem to be any sign of a mini-game allowing you to ferret out bad guys according to their incorrect choice of wine at the dinner table, but in all other respects this is shaping up to be the ultimate retro Bond game. --Harrison Dent

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Bond! 26 Dec 2005
I have spent all Christmas evening playing Bond. It’s awesome; it’s even got Connery!
From the moment that you rescue the PM’s daughter (Natasha Beddingfield) to killing archrival Red Grant it’s a non-stop breathless roller coaster ride of Bond excitement. I loved it. Again and again I found myself saying, look at that, and the thrill of driving THE Aston Martin DB5. What more can you want on Christmas day.
The game is a cross between Red Dead Revolver and Splinter cell but with a hugely atmospheric classic Bond feel. You feel totally immersed in the movie; there are tense moments of sneaking up behind Russian thugs, and light-hearted interaction with Q.
This is a must for every Bond fan, I hope that it is a hit and that EA bring us more of Classic Bond

5.0 out of 5 stars THE BEST JAMES BOND EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 11 Jan 2006
By A Customer
I've played some good james bond games in my time but this one tops the scale! This game puts you in the shoes of sean connery following the story and the film of the classic bond film 'from russia with love'. But obviosly there are some bad sides to the game like disappointing graphics, all very small things. But-in-all a brilliant Game!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Nameshhhhhh Bond, Jameshhhhhhhh Bond 27 Nov 2005
For once Ea have made a smart move, they've taken a Bond game back to the classic Connery era and it's much the better for it. Using the same 3rd person viewpoint and gameplay mechanics as Everything Or Nothing From Russia With Love is a brilliant and varied game.
*The Good*
The game has many good points, the first is obviously having the greatest Bond actor providing his voice and likeness, Connery adds an authenticity to it all and keeps a somewhat cobbled together retelling of the story running smoothly enough. The Next is the graphics, everything looks excellent and the retro styling is very nice. The best point of all is the variety, you have car chases, shoot-outs, on-rails shooting and even a simple RPG style upgrade mechanic for your weapons and gadgets.
*The Bad*
The game doesn't have any glaring faults, but rather minor niggles that detract from an otherwise excellent package. The first and most iritating to Bond afficianados is how Ea has changed the plot with a prime example being the last level which has nothing to do with the film at all or the plot of the game for that matter. The other niggle is the difficulty and depth of the game, while it has great variety it at times feels like somwthing has been added just so it can be listed in the features on the box.
*Overall*
Overall From Russia With Love does what it sets out to do, it's a big brash thrill ride worthy of Connery himself. Although not in depth enough for hardcore gamers it's varied and reasonably long campaign should provide hours of fun, with the award mechanic keeping you perfectionists playing long after you've completed it. All in all it's a great game with no huge flaws which should leave you shaken and stirred.
