From Russia with Love


I love James Bond games. It's really interesting that this latest game release is from a movie of the 60s, with the original great Sean Connery in the main role.

The graphics are really gorgeous. If you go running around an old chalet, you have the textured stone walls, reflective mirrors and fine art paintings on the wall. The character movements are quite smooth. Bond can vault over hedges, climb up on walls and perform other moves.

Strangely, the camera itself is a bit sub par. The "field of view" of your character is very limited - and you can only target enemies that you can see.

The audio is great. Sean Connery does the vocals, but of course it's his "modern" self so it doesn't quite sound as young as the character in the story. Maybe his voice is raspy from too many martinis :) The traditional Bond music plays in the background, drawing you in to the movie atmosphere.

Gameplay in general is traditional Bond fare, which I love. You run around from mission to mission, tracking down bad guys, looking for certain items, and in general finding cool ways in which to kill the enemies. This isn't a slaughter button-mashing game. If you find the most elegant way to handle the situation - the "Bond" way - you are rewarded with really amazing scenes. It's well worth it.

Rent the movie, then play the game - and enjoy!

Rating: 4.5/5
