Complete with co-operation from Connery! Get in!
The first game to let you play as Sean Connerys 007, From Russia With Love should pacify the internet chatroom fanboys bewildered (somewhat unjustly) by Daniel Craigs appointment as the next James Bond.
Starring a beautifully-realised digital double of Connery circa 1963, FRWL features every major set-piece from Terence Youngs classic along with a few new or extended scenes the action swinging between brutal gunplay, explosive dashes in Bonds tooled-up Aston Martin and dozens of tense moments where only a Q Branch gadget will save the day.
The punchy action is given extra depth as players can earn points to upgrade 007s abilities as the game unfolds. But while the From Russia is a thrilling ride, it lacks the mood and atmosphere of GoldenEye on the N64 (still the best Bond game by a country mile), making you feel the star of any old action-packed blaster, rather than taking on the persona of Ian Flemings suave super spy.
