James Bond And Dr. Goodhead Blast Their Way Through 007: Legends' First Mission, Moonraker

It's been a while since I was all that interested in Activision's Bond games, but last year's GoldenEye 007: Reloaded was a surprisingly fun roll down memory lane.

That game's developer Eurocom is behind the upcoming 007: Legends, which will merge six classic bond films into one big story centering around a drowning Bond (Craig Bond, that is) as he remembers his past adventures. It's a cool idea -- rather than try to tell a new story with all the familiar Bond beats, they're going to just use the classic Bond stories we already know, and let us play them.

This trailer shows footage from the first of six films that will be featured in the game, which will be the classic 1979 film Moonraker. That film starred Roger Moore as Bond and had the dubious distinction of featuring one of my favourite double-entendre Bond-girl names, Dr. Holly Goodhead.

While the graphics and character models in particular aren't stunning or anything, the game still looks like fun; after all, the GoldenEye remake was originally a Wii game, and it was still a good time.

Activision promises that the next five missions/films will be revealed leading up to the game's October release. Anyone taking bets on what those films will be? From Russia With Love? Dr. No? Surely Goldfinger will be in there...


    Thunderball - Connery / underwater - living daylights- Dalton / desert - ohmss - lazenby/ snow - tomorrow never dies - pierce/ prison camp - royale - craig/casino. Also add 2 secret levels. 1 based on casino royale teleplay and the other on casino royale 60s version. Unlockable Sellars.


    Have to say that trailer uses the film and music from the series perfectly. Really feels like a Bond game.

    but.. but Daniel Craig plays Bond in his early days, how can he remember adventures he hasn't had yet?

    haha should still be fun though. If there's 6 adventures and there's been 6 main Bond actors then I guess that we'll get an adventure for each one.

    Two CODs this year? Give it a break Activision!

      Yeah, it doesn't look like it has the class of a Bond movie/character/story. All out action it seems, but then that's all Activision know.

    I like the sound of this and I'm interested, but Moonraker? Sure it's fun, but no way is it one of the top six Bond films. It's only barely and arguably in the top six Moore Bond films.

    Dear god, not Eurocom. Their Goldeneye remake was horrible, just horrible.

    What?? The Moonraker Laser DOESN'T look like a super soaker? I call foul :-P

    I always liked the fan theory that Bond was just a name passed down to a series of agents. Which explains why Q is suddenly a lot older than Bond in the Daniel Craig movies.
