What is your fave Bond game 360?

I see there are about 5 James Bond games on the Xbox 360. I am unfamiliar with them. I enjoyed quite a few on the PS2 but never played any of the 360 games. I feel like a bond game. How would you rank them in order and why?

Activision took over the license during the 360 era, and supposedly the quality went way down. You might have trouble finding one that stacks up to the N64/PS2 games. You can see here how bad the average review scores were:

For comparison, here's the PS2 games: https://www.gamerankings.com/search.htm ... search=007

The only one I've tried on 360 is Goldeneye: Reloaded - which is the best reviewed and probably your best bet. But personally, I did not like it and gave up very quickly. I was hoping that it might give me fond memories of playing Goldeneye on the N64, but it didn't feel anything like the N64 game.

Your other option, of course, is to play 007 games from the original Xbox using backwards compatibility. But you've probably already played those same games on your PS2.

Thanks for the ratings charts retro. Wow what a difference between the PS2 and the 360 games. Yep apparently Activision ruined them.

Even if you've already played it on PS2, I'd go with Quantum of Solace. It's different on every platform.

As a huge Bond fan (especially Daniel Craig) I was thinking about doing a James Bond special. However, when I look back I really panned most of the James Bond games. Outside of Goldeneye there are really no standout titles that I know of.

I was real excited to play Goldeneye on the Wii, especially since it had GameCube controller support. But I ran into a weird problem—it was too dark! Like, some levels unplayable for me.

Other than Goldeneye, I think the best titles are Everything or Nothing and Nightfire. I really enjoyed From Russia with Love, too, though that was probably as much nostalgia as anything. I played all of those on PS2.

I love the Bond movies of all eras, and would love to see your James Bond special.

The World Is Not Enough has separate PlayStation and N64 adaptations, both of which seem pretty good. They're probably worth at least reviewing.
