Finally the James Bond games have done what the films shouldve done years ago: theyve gone back to the 60s. From Russia with Love doesnt 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. Its 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. Theres also an online and split screen multiplayer mode for you to compare these settings with friends.
Alas there doesnt 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

I think that this game is great fun for all ages and the Sean Connery voiceovers are brilliant!
Don't expect to complete a mission easily. You think you've completed a mission, only to suddenly find yourself back driving or heading down river in a speedboat.
My only criticism would be the aiming system when on the boat. The enemies are impossible to kill unless you zoom in but when you do it throws the targeting off so you have to forget accurate aim and just hope you hit something.
The end sequence of the game is rather short and disappointing too considering the amount of work you've put in to get there!
This game isn't just for Bond fans. Anybody who likes shoot 'em ups and action will enjoy this!
Still, From Russia With Love, so far the most current Bond game decides to go back in time. It's stylings and technology are sixties in look and feel, because Sean Connery is back as the super spy.
It's the right move to make - the nostalgic feel of the films with all the old gadgets included make this game great for any Bond fan, and it doesn't in any way, become a travesty of the classic film.
In fact, the movie's plotline is used to great effect for some pretty good levels. From the opening maze scene, right to the very end boat chase finale, this follows the film closely, and the levels don't feel force.
Occasionally the creators have included an extra bit not in the film, but on the whole, it's accurate, and the new stuff - apart from Natasha Bedingfield as one of the characters, why? - doesn't feel out of place.
The controls are pretty fluid, and are set in the usual 3rd person adventure positioning that every game uses. The jet pack was a surprise, in that it's very easy to handle. The only difficulty in conttrols wise was manning the gun turrets, particularly on the first speed boat level - it is very picky, and you have to be very accurate, which makes that sewer level a pain to complete.
The driving sections, while a bit plain, where quite good fun, nonetheless. And there is also a small mini-game where you have to unlock briefcases to get the info inside which is mildly diverting from the main missions.
The main missions, however, are quite short. I blasted through this game in 2 days.Read more ›
