Activision need to stop with these. Blood Stone was awful trash.

15 years later and no one has come close to a bond game that rivals Goldeneye

Hmm, top 6, that haven't already been done in GoldenEye

Well, the Bond vs. Red Grant on the Orient Express would not translate well, especially if you want a four player mode. The ninja attack on Blofeld's hollowed out volcano lair would work though. Definitely Daltonator vs. SMERSH at the rock of Gibraltar, Oddjob in the vault at Fort Knox would also work - or has that featured in a previous game?

George Lazenby's ski chase might translate - you could end it with a union flag parachute. Finally, Bambi and Thumper at the Whyte house? Or should I include Jaws...?

You can say that again. Even a "greatest hits" compilation will be hard pressed

Too right, I don't think itl ever be topped. Only last week a gang of us got together for an N64 night, Mario Kart, Diddy Kong racing and lots of Goldeneye, nothing like strafing around the archives with your Dostovei killing everything in sight, easily one of the top five games of all time!

There's quite famously already a Goldeneye game though and it was done again last year. Why do it AGAIN? Casino Royale was also done in the Quantum game. TND is a good shout though. I reckon if it's 6 films they'll do one for each Bond, even if they're all made into Craig. So Goldfinger aston chase for Connery era, Spy Who LOved Me skiing for Moore era, errr, more snow for Lazenby, Afghanistan or cello case scene for Dalton, maybe TWINE thames boat chase for Brosnan, and Skyfall for Craig.

Hey I LIKE Blood Stone. Not a hardcore gamer though. Always enjoy the Bond games.

BLOOD STONE was actually fairly fun, but sadly it couldn't hold a candle to series best EVERYTHING OR NOTHING. We need to see another BOND GAME, with Craig in the lead, that has that same level of polish, that same dazzling scope (with missions that have actual down time and free roaming elements, rather than pre-scripted set pieces)

It's a shame they've not tried a project in the vein of FRWL, though with Connery apparently being down for the count with old age related issues, without him there to provide the voice work it wouldn't really be worth the effort.

I'm eager to try this game, but it does sound a bit hodge podge, and I view the idea of trying to unify action sequences from different films under one story as a rather dubious endeavor.

I actually think the best game after Goldeneye was The World is Not Enough, but I didn't play all of the later PS2 era ones. Mostly crap though like Nightfre and Agent Under Fire.

would be good if you could choose which 007 to be, any video game using Roger Moore quotes would be brilliant fun.
