I have played the James Bond games exenstively over the years from Goldeneye to Quantum of Solace, I haven't played 007 legends. They are games that truly convey the style, personailty and mood of a Bond game. Tomorrow Never dies was a great adaptation of the film, Goldeneye as well but, it took it to another level by changing first person shooters while retaining the Bond elements. Then Everything or Nothing built story and characters from scratch as if it came from an actual Bond film.
Other film franchises have not translated very well to video games. For the most part games who are tied to a video game usually suck. The Transformers games, ET, etc. I think the Bond games always have some sort of freedom when it comes to development. They can make the game what they want as long as it somewhat follows the Bond film or element. What do you think?
