I just picked up a few of the PS2-era 007 games off Ebay to help fill in that gap. Thanks for all the recommendations.

Perhaps you could get the C64 Critic to play and review this game. Then add it to your story.

Since I picked up a few 007 games for the PS2 I've been surprised. First, I'm surprised EA released so many of these. They were like Madden! They must have sold well.

Next, the quality of packaging. A sturder DVD box - not the flimsy disposable crap they give you now that cracks if you sneeze on it. Also, the insert is thick paper, not tissue paper. Finally, you get a quality manual with a thick cover.

Man, we didn't know how good we had it back then!

I hope the quality of the packaging is an indicator of the quality of the games - looking forward to the reviews!

I was not a fan of most of the Bond games and I have played most of them. Nightfire I agree is the best one. I spent a lot of hours on that one.

I'm nearly the end of From Russia with Love so will tackle Nightfire next! I really appreciate all the suggestions guys. By the time No Time To Die is released I should be able to put together a nice 007 page.

Everything or Nothing stands out as the best from my memory, though it has been awhile. Looking forward to the 007 page!

Nightfire may lack the polish of From Russia With Love, but it's still a lot of fun. The snow stages in the beginning are fantastic.

Saw this article, and thought maybe this community might be impressed. It's about a person that recreated all the levels of Goldeneye with the Fallout 5 level editor:

Here's a link to just the YouTube video of the comparisons:

It is pretty cool. I can't imagine investing that much time into creating it, but I would love to play it!

Anyone who follows the Nintendo Direct releases has seen this, but thought I would put this out for everyone. Goldeneye is making its long-rumored return to the Switch and Xbox. So far it looks like both will be download-only, but if I'm wrong I'll be happy to be corrected!

Sounds like the Switch version will be an HD upgrade, and the Xbox version will be a 4k upgrade. Switch will have online multiplayer, while Xbox will have split-screen local multiplayer.

Here are a couple of articles:
