From Russia with Love PS2 Review

Console Obsession
31 May 2010
  • Excerpt: Seeing through the eyes of Bond isn’t quite as logical as controlling an onscreen 007, lets face it with an FPS game things are a little limited for such a character. This is why we enjoyed Everything or Nothing as much as we did, you actually had control of Pierce Bronson as Bond and every single one of his actions could be seen. From Russia with Love is EA’s latest third person Bond game, although this time you take control of Sean Connery, the original Bond.

  • Excerpt: James Bond. He’s one of the most famous pop culture icons of the twentieth century. For over four decades, he’s entertained legions of moviegoers and spy fanatics alike. His obvious issues with alcoholism, misogynistic attitude, and obscenely destructive behavior aside, his suave personality, mad secret agent skills and simplistic charm have won over many a fan throughout the years.

007: From Russia With Love

Playstation Illustrated
25 July 2006
  • Excerpt: The James Bond franchise has a long and colorful history in video games, each time with the intent of trying to capture the unique action, flavor, and style of James Bond. Sometimes these ideas work, and sometimes they don’t. The latest attempt is From Russia With Love by EA Games, and it does a fairly decent job of recreating your typical Bond action. Stylistically, From Russia With Love basically nails it, but falters at times.

James Bond 007: From Russia With Love Review

  • 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. Sadly, that has never been the case, but EA have at least made one good stab at it with 2004's Everything or Nothing.

13 December 2005
  • Excerpt: From Russia With Love is based on the 1960's Bond film of the same name. Bond is sent to Istanbul to recover an encryption machine from a Russian agent who is defecting. It turns out that this is a trap set by the crime organization SPECTRE, who wants to avenge the death of Dr. No. The game doesn't follow the exact plot of the movie, which is a shame, because the new stuff isn't that great, and there really wasn't anything wrong with the source material.

  • Excerpt: "The name's Bond, James Bond." This introduction is quite possibly the most famous in movie history. James Bond is a legendary action hero on the screen and has gained a following in video games to boot. Electronic Arts has had exclusivity to the Bond license for more than six years now, going back to the ill-fated Tomorrow Never Dies on the original PlayStation.

From Russia With Love Review

GameSpot
1 November 2005
  • Excerpt: It took a heavy reenvisioning of how Bond games should be played to get the series back on track, but last year's Everything or Nothing did it. By dropping the first-person-perspective rut the series had gotten itself into, and by shifting things into the third person, EA went and made a damn thrilling original adventure featuring a host of celebrity actors, including the most recent (and now former) James Bond, Pierce Brosnan.
  • Pros: Plenty of new Bond gadgets and combat moves to play with, Nice sense of retro style, That great Bond soundtrack is well implemented, Sean Connery
  • Cons: Story is a hacked-up version of the film's plot, and it lacks some of the film plot's best parts, Game, as a whole, is ridiculously easy to blaze through, Multiplayer is weak and unremarkable, Sean Connery

  • Conclusion: EA refused to give more information regarding the game. It looks like a new exciting experience for Bond fans. So, start shaking those martinis as this game is coming later this year.
