Not sure how many people here are James Bond fans, but we've put together a feature detailing three Bond films that we want to see represented in the forthcoming action game, 007 Legends.
Read more -- http://www.psu.com/a016493/3-James-B...in-007-LegendsJames Bond hasn’t had a particularly glowing resume when it comes to videogames in the past few years, and his film output has been a little patchy to boot – Casino Royale notwithstanding, of course. However, not to be deterred, publishing powerhouse Activision is taking another stab at the British spy franchise in the boldly-titled 007 Legends; an intriguing shooter that combines the settings and characters of six Bond films with a unique, overarching narrative. Not only does this concept allow gamers to revisit those iconic Bond locations and battle against our favourite baddies, but potentially lets us view those classic flicks from an entirely new perspective.
To date, we know of three Bond films confirmed to be in the game: On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, Moonraker and this year’s upcoming Skyfall. So, that’s George Lazenby’s first (and only) appearance as the Martini-drinking secret agent, plus a Roger Moore film plus of course the latest effort from Daniel Craig. However, with three films yet to be confirmed – not to mention three key Bond eras yet to be represented – we decided to cobble together a list of three must-have Bond films that 007 Legends needs to add to its belt. We’ve attempted to pick the best films from each remaining era so that every Bond-era gets its time in the limelight.

If 007 Legends can represent the sorely underrated Lazenby era with OHMSS, then there’s absolutely no way Activision would get away with shipping the game without including a Sean Connery Bond film – and Goldfinger is just the ticket. Regarded by many as the quintessential James Bond movie, Goldfinger has it all; the eponymous, iconic villain; action-packed set-pieces; the legendary Pussy Galore; and some witty one-liners from our over-sexed spy himself. We were torn between this and Dr. No, since the latter celebrates its 50th anniversary this year, though we ultimately feel that Goldfinger would be a slightly better representation of the Connery-era, since it features so many staples -- Q, the Aston Martin DB5 and of course the inexorable henchman, Oddjob. Goldfinger has tunnelled into the public consciousness on the back of not only these merits, but also John Barry’s memorable score and of course the theme tune, sung by Shirley Bassey. We’d be interested to see how the narrative would assimilate with developer Eurocom’s all-encompassing story, but as long as it doesn’t come at a detriment to those classic characters we have a lot of confidence. EA’s attempts at combining elements of Goldfinger with a new storyline in the last-gen outing Golden Eye: Rogue Agent were met with mixed results, so we’re hopeful this classic Connery flick will see a better representation here.

Tomorrow never dies is the worst Brosnan Bond film I cannot stand watching it. The reason why people choose Goldeneye is because it is the best.Baby's head is dangling out; its just sat there like it's got some weird polo neck onKarl Pilkington on child birth
