The One With
all the defining moments from the series.007 Legends
is a First-Person Shooter
video game released in 2012, developed by Eurocom and published by Activision
for the Xbox 360
/ Wii U
, which follows the exploits of James Bond
(the Daniel Craig
incarnation) in six of the secret agent's past adventures.
Set during the events of Skyfall
, Bond (voiced by Timothy Watson
) is mistakenly shot by MI6 sniper Eve during a confrontation with an enemy on top of a train in Istanbul, and falls into a river below. As he's sinking under the water, Bond flashes back to several key moments during the franchise's history, including sequences from the films Goldfinger
, On Her Majesty's Secret Service
, Licence to Kill
and Die Another Day
. The game retells these incidents as an overarching narrative (using the Craig version of the character, similar to Goldeneye Wii
) that follows Bond's progression into an experienced secret agent.
The game was developed primarily to celebrate 50 years of the Bond character in film
, and features one film from each actor (Sean Connery
, George Lazenby
, Roger Moore
, Timothy Dalton
, Pierce Brosnan
and Craig himself) who has portrayed the secret agent. Each film comprises two missions, which feature a variety of moments seen in the films, along with additional enemy encounters and gameplay mechanics that emphasize the use of many gadgets, including Bond's smartphone and wristwatch. The game also features voice acting from a wide selection of past and present actors in the series, including Judi Dench
, Richard Kiel, Carey Lowell and others, along with a split-screen multiplayer mode.

On January 3rd, 2013, Activision pulled the PC version of 007: Legends
as well as their own online store. As a result, it is effectively impossible to buy the PC version of the game from a legitimate source
, with the only practical options being either pirating the game, or buying from a grey market source (i.e. ebay sellers) who probably obtained it via piracy.
