Our videos of 007 Legends

The previous James Bond game was by no means a must have, but at least it could be a little fun to play. As for 007 Legends, we must say there isn't much to prevent it from being forgotten by players in the days to come. Not only is it a pale Call of Duty skin, but it fails to deliver in every department: stealth is a pain to play, the investigation scenes are not really interesting either, and the shooting mechanics are not fun, with bulletproof enemies who can spot you even when you're crouching far from them, but who will take forever to take a shot at you when they get close. To top it all, the game looks dated visually speaking and framerate cannot even stay smooth at 60 fps. No really, there are tons of other things you can do other than spending your time and money on this one.

So it's 60fps on 360? I does look smooth on that stealth clip, reminds me of Deus Ex... even the generic corridor look.

Saw a video review and said exactly what i was expecting. CoD with a Bond skin. NEXT!

I'm struggling to see what this has to do with James Bond. It just looks like a brainless shooter full of explosions. Eurocom seem to have spectacularly failed to realise why people like James Bond. (hint - it's because he's a SPY)

Dude its Activision... they are using the most advanced form of the current Call of Duty MW3 tech so yeah... only with 007 franchise.

About the game


What's up?
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth the arcade shadow dancer is also nice, built on the same gameplay foundations as arcade shinobi, but a bit weaker level design. i also love rolling thunder 1&2, which are also very similar (17 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth i played a bit of shinobi and kunoichi on ps2, but they are really just shinobi in name. (18 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth game gear shinobi is more like the arcade version than the mega drive ones. (19 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I'd love some kind of real Sega revival. (40 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I like a bunch of Shinobi games. Even the Game Gear had great Shinobi games. Also the PS2 Shinobi was too quickly forgotten. (40 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth my fav Sega game is Shinobi (original arcade). I still play it now and then. I think they have other, more recognizable and iconic characters/brands, but for me those games don't hold up as well today (46 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Wasn't really bashing it anyway. I love a lot of Sega stuff, and I think Shenmue is okay. Maybe a bit overrated is all. (58 minutes ago)
