Bond Video GamesEdit
Over the years, several video games based on the films were released.
Goldeneye was released on the N64 and Playstation 1 in 1996. The N64 version was highly successful, both critically and commercially. Commercially, the PS1 version also performed well but was not as warmly received as the N64 version.
Tomorrow Never Lies: The Mission Continues was released in 1999 as a Dreamcast exclusive. It performed poorly despite mixed to positive reviews. The plot takes place after the end of the movie, with Harmsway escaping from prison and Bond going after him. It is generally seen as being out of canon with the Brosnan continuity.
The World is Not Enough was a surprise smash hit in early 2000 on the PS1, N64 and Dreamcast. Once again, the N64 performed the best, although the Dreamcast and Playstation versions still did well.
Goldeneye 2000 was an attempt to recreate the success of the 1996 video game, but was met with poor reviews but did relatively well in terms of sales. The game featured a graphical update of the original game and was exclusive to PC, but the plot was so highly altered that many fans do not count it as a true adaption of the story.
James Bond of the Secret Service for the PS2, Gamecube and later Xbox was released in 2002 and featured an original story involving a villain named Rafael Drake attempting to weaponize a possible cure for smallpox, a plot which Bond must stop. The game was a relative success but did not reach the heights previously set by Goldeneye and The World is Not Enough.
Nightfire, released in 2004, also featured an original plot, involving a plot to replace British Parliament with robotic duplicates. Like Secret Service before it, it was a domestic success.
The Heart of Ezrulie for the PC, Xbox and PS2 saw Bond taking on a former KGB agent who is attempting to hijack a NATO array to launch an attack on the West. The game was praised for it's more realistic premise.
007: Confidential Mission in a departure from the realistic nature of Heart of Ezrulies plot, Confidential Mission involved Bond stopping a plot to take over the world using an army of robots. It met mixed reviews.
Licence Renewed is an original story video game featuring Sean Connery's likeness as Bond and sees him foiling SPECTRE's plan to detonate a nuclear bomb on an American army base in Iraq. It was better received than Confidential Mission but still not reach the levels of the earlier titles.
Casino Royale was the first game to feature Daniel Craig in the Bond role. It was released for the PS2, Wii, and Xbox 360, making it the first next gen Bond game.
Colonel Sun featured Craig as Bond and Daniel Dae-Kim as the villain Colonel Sun. In the game, M is kidnapped by Sun. It was released on PS3 and Xbox 360.
Bond Legacy featured Craig in a reworking of the continuity, placing classic Bond villains together. The plot involves Dr. No stealing a nuclear warhead but after he is defeated, the true villain is revealed to be Auric Goldfinger.
Risico was released in 2012 as a downloadable title on Xbox Live and Playstation Network. It is based on the film of the same name.
Skyfall features Bond engaging American cyber terrorist Thomas Gabriel, who is attempting to systematically shut down the United States. It was met with a positive reception.
James Bond: On Her Majesty's Secret Service was a live-action TV series based on the film franchise starring John Gavin as James Bond. It ran for four seasons. Each week a different villain was featured.
James Bond: Licence to Kill was an animated series based on the Bond series. The first season dealt with Bond facing Dr. No, and trying to uncover who his mysterious employer was. At the end of the season, Dr. No was killed in a helicopter crash. The second season saw Bond taking on OCTOPUS; the true villain behind No's scheme, which was led by the evil Blofeld. Blofeld also died at the season close as the OCTOPUS base exploded. The final season was inspired by the plot of Goldeneye; Bond pursued Alec Trevelyan across the globe in order to find out what he is up to. The ending is noticably different, however; Trevelyan has a change of heart before he can deploy a deadly virus which would kill millions and ditches the plane transporting it into the sea, presumably perishing with this act.
James Bond: Agent Under Fire is a CGI series featuring Daniel Craig's likeness as Bond. The whole series has an overarching plot involving Bond being kicked from MI6 as part of a conspiracy by the wicked Quantam organization.
