French actor Michael Lonsdale reprized his role as Drax in the "Moonraker" mission module of the 2012 James Bond video-game 007 Legends (2012) a massive thirty-three years after he played the role in the original 1979 Bond movie Moonraker (1979). See more »
007 James bond is a bad ass super-spy with over 50 years of history filled with some of the most recognizable hero's, villains, lines, and moments. so making a game celebrating these moments is a brilliant idea so how well are these moments moved from film to game? lets find out.
first off the premise is amazing and that only makes me wish it was executed better. the game opens with a scene from Skyfall and flashes back to the most impressive moments in bond history. the good news is that the moments are executed well but are not pulled together to feel like one cohesive story. the only issue with the moments is that they feel different because of Daniel Craig replacing all the old bonds and how odd it is to be snooping around with a smart phone but its better then remaking the bond movies. other then that it is a well executed game and fun to fight all of the old villains.
game-play wise its nothing great but nothing is broken. its basic FPS fair. some stealth sections are OK but difficult if you don't have a silenced weapon. basic but not broken same goes for the online which feels like a better version of last times Goldeneye reloaded.
graphically the game looks OK nothing fantastic but not dull enough to hate. outside looks better then indoor sections. faces and models look fine there is nothing to hate but nothing to love. voice acting is fine and sound is one of the better tech aspects.
so in the end there is no major issues with 007 legends its a somewhat above average game that is worth your time if you like the sires.
game-play 7/10. graphics 6/10. story 4/10. replay 6/10. non fans 6/10 nothing will catch your attention just a normal shooter. fans 8/10 a lot of awesome moments from some of the best bond films will make you love this game more than others normally would. overall 7
