Excerpt: In what could be viewed as a cautious move by EA after its last atrocious game that was set within the Bond universe, the company has brought one of the franchise?s most beloved tales to the video game format.

Excerpt: There's a strange allure to James Bond videogames. It's probably a direct result of GoldenEye, with my mind thinking every subsequent Bond release will be as good as Rare's classic Nintendo 64 title.
