007 From Russia With Love for Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2)
After a succession of games based on contemporary films and new stories, Electronic Arts brings the Bond license back to one of the best-loved movies of the series, 1963's From Russia With Love, starring Sean Connery. Set in Turkey against a Cold War backdrop, the game puts players in the role of a 007 based directly on Connery's portrayal, and the celebrated actor lends his voice and likeness to the production. As the young, seemingly immortal Bond, players will embark on missions involving reconnaissance, high-speed driving, hand-to-hand combat, and straightforward third-person shooting.
Many movie critics credit From Russia With Love as the film that established the series' winning formula, featuring a clever, well-equipped James Bond who can be as charming as he is deadly, and who is all too aware of his own Achilles' heel -- a weakness for a beautiful women. The voices and appearances of other film cast members are featured in the game as well, including Desmond Llewelyn as Q, Lois Maxwell as Miss Moneypenny, Daniela Bianchi as the alluring Tatiana Romanova, and Robert Shaw as the imposing Red Grant.
