It hasn't been confirmed, I'm just assuming that since it's supposed to be a celebration of the history of Bond, it would only make sense to include every actor (it would be kind of a dick move to leave someone out). Plus the numbers just add up well, six actors, six levels. I'm with you though on preferring to have a different Moore movie, I would have much rather had a TSWLM level than Moonraker.

Yeah that would make sense. Yeah definitely, to be honest moonraker would have been my last choice out of the Moore films... I'd love LALD as I mentioned. I'd also love AVTAK, but I very much doubt that'd happen

If they are going to leave someone out it will be Dalton. Even in that recent clothes of Bond video they left him out I think.

But watching the OHMSS video, I don't get why Daniel Craig is even in this Legends game. EON is trying to say this is a new Bond, a complete reboot. Then we get Goldeneye remakes and this Legends game with Daniel Craig as Bond.

Re: Activision announces "007 LEGENDS"

I'm just guessing, but could it be because it would be ungodly expensive to try and bring every other actor back? They tried something similar with From Russia with Love a couple of years ago and there is a reason it was bad. GoldenEye, even though it was advertised as such, was not a remake of the 1997 game, it was a retelling of the GoldenEye story in Craig's style of the character. Isn't the video game universe separate from the movies? If that is the case then Legends and GE Wii and Reloaded don't count and this is still a re-started series.

I don't have a problem with Craig being Bond throughout the game. The one thing I would have a problem with is if the did remake GoldenEye 64 and then put Craig in as Bond. But that will likely never happen.

Re: Activision announces "007 LEGENDS"

One thing I wish they would stop in the Bond games that I find rather annoying is not being able to drop the main side arm. I think this was in Rogue Agent, I don't care what ANYONE says, that game was great! I think QoS had it too.

This is the way they seem to be approaching it. These are new adaptations of the stories with Craig tones layered into the imagination. They are not intended to be total remakes of the other actors' work with a recasting.


And does anyone else think 6 levels will be incredibly short? I mean, assuming the levels are around 30 to 60 mins, it will be around six hours max. And that's a generous guess. I can't recall games that have levels much longer than 50mins. Not to mention the fact that it actually only ships with 5 levels, and the sixth coming at an undisclosed later date (likely shortly after the film release or right around that time).

I almost can't imagine this being worth the initial retail $59.99. That's on the high end for gaming cost per hour of play. More so for a licensed annual series. I'll have to wait and see on this one.

Very short from the sound of things. But, knowing modern day games, they'll tack on a lot of DLC to try and keep it "fresh". Makes the overall price go north of $80 if you want more. The only thing I can think of that would make this better is if EVERY level had a stealth part, a driving part, and an action part. Make them all equally long (if they fit within the context of the level), and it might equal out to an overall longer game. Here's hoping, anyway.

Re: Activision announces "007 LEGENDS"

Activision has revealed that Richard Kiel and Michael Lonsdale will be reprising their respective roles of Jaws and Hugo Drax. In addition will be film and game writer Bruce Feirstein. The trio will be joining the previously announced Daniel Craig, along with Skyfall actress Naomie Harris and co-star Rory Kinnear who'll be reprising his role as MI6 Chief of Staff Bill Tanner.

Well, they did get Connery for FRWL. But the reasons the game was bad were all down to design. They probably picked FRWL to get Connery but FRWL was not a good choice for a Bond game. If the company and producers understood videogames they could have come up with something truly special with Connery. It's an obvious idea too. I hinted about it here or in the other Bond game thread.

If they can't get the original actors they really shouldn't make the games. At least to me. It's kind of disingenuous saying that Craig's Bond goes on similar adventures as past Bond actors.

"Better late than never."

63

Re: Activision announces "007 LEGENDS"

Well at least they did try to add elements from later Bond movies for the FRWL video game to spice it up a little like the jetpack from Thunderball for example, althought i dont remember it being able to shoot missles though lol.

Re: Activision announces "007 LEGENDS"

I think they are proberbly indeed going for one movie of each actor seeing as how there are six levels...

So we already know the Craig, Lazenby and Moore one...

My predictions:
- Brosnan: Goldeneye is done a lot of times, I think they might go for TWINE here and pick the boat chase...
- Dalton: Although I would prefer to see LTK, I think they would go for a TLD level...
- Connery: Hard to say, I have a feeling it could be YOLT

Re: Activision announces "007 LEGENDS"

When looking up this game on IMDB you can see that there are two voice actors credited as "Sanchez Soldier" and "Goldfinger Soldier"!

Although, this might not be reliable, it could mean that two other levels will be LTK and GF!
I would love to see a LTK level! - I might even get the game then...

Re: Activision announces "007 LEGENDS"

In terms of the Brosnan film levels, well really any of them, it depends on how they arrange them in the game. So far they have released trailers in the order they will be seen in the game so Moonraker, OHMSS. Since the second is a snow/ice (keep in mind this is PURE speculation) level they could use one of the snow chases from the Brosnan films. There is one in all three films that could be used. It could be a mission to take out the terrorist arms bazaar, or protecting Elektra from the parahawks, the third option would be the car chase in Iceland.

Sure there are other things they could do. But I bet one of the chase scenes in one of these three films will be used. Brosnan's movies had some of the better chase scenes. There is the motorcycle chase in Tomorrow Never Dies, the boat chase from World (this is the one I hope) and there are two in Die Another Day, one in the opening teaser on the hovercrafts and then again on the ice in Iceland.

They wanted to have their cake and eat it too. Stuff like that was really bad for me. The worst was the final base level. That was a big example of the designers not being Bond fans. If they were going to do a base level they needed the person over the intercom talking, counting down, etc. The whole game was an example of not getting what FRWL was about.

Yes only those three. However on IMDB, there are voice actors credited for both Goldfinger soldier and Sanchez Soldier. Of course IMDB isn't a garantee, but they can be very accurate at times... And if 6 missions means 6 movies from all 6 actors, the possibility of GF and LTK is still open... so who knows!

Re: Activision announces "007 LEGENDS"

Since it has had a very recent game made from it, I seriously don't think GoldenEye will be used.

I think one of the chase scenes from one of his other three films will be used. If so, I want either the motorcycle chase from Tomorrow Never Dies, the boat chase from The World is Not Enough or the hovercraft chase from Die Another Day, and possibly the ice chase from the same movie.

Re: Activision announces "007 LEGENDS"

I was looking on the website a minute ago, and there's a caption on one of the pages saying "6 missions, 8 infamous villains" or something along those lines. The way I see it, the '8 infamous villains' strongly implies that 2 of the missions will each feature a particularly well-known henchman, since 6 of those 8 will be the main antagonists. The most infamous henchmen are undoubtedly Oddjob, Baron Samedi, and Jaws, and since we already know that Jaws will be in the Moonraker segment of the game, I think it's safe to say that either Goldfinger or Live and Let Die will be featured. Since Baron Samedi has been confirmed as a multiplayer character, and since Goldfinger has already received a fair amount of video game coverage, I'm banking on - and hoping for - Live and Let Die.
