James Bond rocks '007 Legends' videogame

Posted on

James Bond may not be back on the big screen until next month, but armchair secret agents needn’t wait until Skyfall‘s Nov. 8 bow to get their MI6 fix. 007 Legends — Activision’s latest interactive take on the iconic, 50-year-old film franchise — lands like a thunderball on Xbox 360s and PlayStation 3s Oct. 16.

Forgoing the movie-tied mediocrity plaguing most film-to-game adaptations, Legends puts players behind the Walther PPK in an inspired overarching story spanning six Bond films; from escaping Auric Goldfinger’s infamous swimsuit area-searing laser to evading Jaw’s bone-crushing blows in Moonraker, players face off against favorite foes in a number of classic scenes. On top of revisiting the films’ most fan-pleasing moments, Legends also features a detail-drenched likeness of Daniel Craig and promises more slick gadgets, sexy girls, and globe-trotting action than you can shake — not stir — a martini at.

Check out the exclusive launch trailer here:
