Worst to First: James Bond Games
As the world is waiting for Daniel Craig to return to the suit and play our favorite martini-swigging, dame-slaying and bad guy-shooting special agent in Spectre, it's time we look back at 007's 10 best games in order to rank our favorite James Bond missions. As with most license-based franchises, the James Bond series has had its fair share of clunkers over the years, and the good 007 games out there are vastly outnumbered by the mediocre ones. Luckily, a few of them have beaten the curse of licensed games and established themselves as excellent titles in their own right.
First created 62 years ago by writer Ian Fleming, James Bond has become one of the most iconic action movie heroes of all time and is easily one of the UK's most beloved fictional franchises. James Bond has had over 22 different console games throughout the past 32 years, starting with James Bond 007 on the Atari 2600. The Bond series has been ported over countless times to just about every noteworthy game console you could name. We've seen James Bond star in a text adventure games and a Twisted Metal-style racing game over the years, but 007 is primarily known for his number of shooter titles. Telltale Games President and co-founder Kevin Bruner has stated in the past that he's a big Bond fan and would love for his company to start up an adventure game starring 007, but we'll just have to wait and see if those licensing rights ever clear. So let's shake and stir our way through the best James Bond games of all time, going from worst to first.
