James Bond has made fortunes for himself in his iconic role plays on the 007 Project. He also made a name for himself in the movie entertainment industry. Fans so love James Bond, and many will love to continue to watch his movies nonstop and even play a game adapted from any of his blockbuster films.
The James Bond franchise is not new to the gaming industry, with the popular Nintendo 64 game from GoldenEye that fans loved. Now another franchise’s return to gaming adaptation of the project 007 into a game by IO Interactive is working. We would be looking at the top 10 James Bond movies that would make great video games.
- Diamonds Are Forever (1971)
- License To Kill (1989
- Thunderball (1965)
- Live And Let Die (1973)
- On Her Majesty’s Secret Service (1969)
- The Spy Who Loved Me (1977)
- Casino Royale (2006)
- Die Another Day (2002)
- Spectre (2015)
- Moonraker (1979)
1. Diamonds Are Forever (1971) – James Bond
With a premise like “Bond’s main mission is to find out who is smuggling diamonds and stop it,” Diamonds Are Forever sounds like it could be an entertaining game. Remember, this was during the Cold War, so there’d have to be some spy stuff involved in the gameplay. Maybe you could play Bond on his quest to track down Blofeld and stop him from selling diamonds or take on his role as he tracks down diamond smugglers through Las Vegas casinos, Amsterdam coffee shops, and African mines (or something). We’re not sure how many missions there would be or what exactly they’d entail yet, but we think this one has the potential to make a great game.
2. License To Kill (1989) – James Bond
The story of License To Kill is based on Ian Fleming’s novel of the same name, published in 1957. The film stars Timothy Dalton as James Bond and Robert Davi as his main antagonist, Franz Sanchez. In this movie, Bond’s girlfriend (played by Carey Lowell) is murdered by Sanchez, and he must save her from a plane explosion caused by Sanchez’s henchman, Dario.
Davi’s character has several gadgets at his disposal, including a wristwatch with a laser beam and an inflatable raft that can hold up to five people. Additionally, the villain has many henchmen who help him during his schemes throughout the film, including one who attempts to kill Bond with an elephant gun while on an island full of poisonous snakes. This movie will make an awesome game in our rating.
3. Thunderball (1965) – James Bond
Thunderball was the fourth movie in the James Bond series. The film stars Sean Connery as the fictional MI6 agent James Bond. The plot is based on the 1961 novel of the same name by Ian Fleming. In an attempt to retrieve two nuclear warheads stolen by SPECTRE, James Bond infiltrates the Bahamas-based company controlled by Emilio Largo (Adolfo Celi). Largo and his mistress, Fiona Volpe (Luciana Paluzzi), torture Bond for information about British intelligence agents and then send him off in a disguised boat with explosive charges so that he can be killed when it explodes near a US destroyer.
However, Bond manages to escape this trap and tracks down Felix Leiter (Jack Lord), who informs him that Largo’s yacht has been spotted off Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. They travel there using Leiter’s friend Gomez’s plane, which crashes as they approach their destination due to turbulence caused by violent thunderstorms over Rio de Janeiro. This movie, in our opinion, will make a tremendous mission-type game.
4. Live And Let Die (1973) – James Bond
Live And Let Die is the second film in the Bond series and marks Roger Moore’s first outing as 007. The plot involves Bond’s investigation into a New York drug lord who is believed to have been behind the death of two British agents. The action sequences in this movie are incredible, especially considering that it was made in 1973. We’d love to see a game where you’re chasing after Mr. Big driving a speedboat while avoiding obstacles such as crocodiles and other boats with machine guns.
5. On Her Majesty’s Secret Service (1969)
In On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, Bond must infiltrate Blofeld’s (the villain) exclusive casino to save the world from a deadly nerve gas attack. Bond is a high-stakes gambler, and so is Blofeld, making for an exciting game dynamic. The two must beat each other at their own game to win.
Bond can play poker with his friends or family members for fun. Still, he also gambles as part of his job as a secret agent when he infiltrates enemy strongholds searching for vital information that could help save lives or prevent wars from breaking out between nations.
6. The Spy Who Loved Me (1977)
The Spy Who Loved Me is an excellent movie and would make a fantastic video game. It’s got action, romance, and a great storyline that would translate well to the world of video games. The movie stars Roger Moore as James Bond and Barbara Bach as Anya Amasova. The story centers around Bond trying to stop some rogue Soviet agents from stealing his submarine and using it against NATO forces.
There are plenty of villains in this film, including Jaws (Richard Kiel), who has metal teeth that he uses as weapons. The Spy Who Loved Me also features some fantastic action scenes involving underwater battles with sharks, which are rarely seen in films; such scenes would make for a great spy action game. We think it would be awesome if this classic 007 movie flick into something like Grand Theft Auto meets Call of Duty style shooter game.
7. Casino Royale (2006)
This movie we believe can make a fantastic detective-style game. For the first time in the series, Daniel Craig’s Bond is pitted against a single villain, Le Chiffre (Mads Mikkelsen), trying to make a fortune by funding terrorists. This one has no gadgets or henchmen, and it’s all about strategy and brute force. The poker scene makes it worth checking out; it’s one of the best in any Bond movie.
8. Die Another Day (2002)
You don’t have to be a gamer to realize that video games are massive. They’re one of the most popular forms of entertainment today, making up a significant portion of our culture. Die Another Day is a 2002 movie from the 007 franchise that would make for a fantastic game, just like the other Bond movie adapted for a game. Outrageous gadgets and vehicles make this movie suited for a grand theft shooting style game.
9. Spectre (2015)
The film begins with a scientist named Franz Oberhauser (Christoph Waltz) using an artificial intelligence system to train and control orphaned children. He then uses the children as assassins, one of whom is Bond’s partner, who shoots and kills him before she dies. Later in the movie, Bond discovers that Oberhauser was his childhood friend, Ernst Stavro Blofeld; they were separated and raised by different families because their parents were enemies. Blofeld is revealed to be responsible for all of Spectre’s criminal activity; he has been secretly controlling it over the years while hiding behind multiple aliases such as Max Denbigh (C), Albert Finney’s character from Skyfall (2012). This movie will make a great video game in the intelligence and crime-fighting game style.
10. Moonraker (1979)
Moonraker (1979) is the 11th film in the series and Roger Moore’s role as Bond. It is based on Ian Fleming’s novel of the same name, published in 1955. The film was produced by Albert R. Broccoli and Michael Wilson as part of Eon Productions and directed by Lewis Gilbert. The title comes from a scene set at Drax Industries’ space station headquarters in which Drax (played by Michael Lonsdale) reveals that he named his company after a type of medieval siege weapon. This movie, in our belief, would make for a great game adaptation.
Final Wrap Up
Bond has featured in many action-thriller movies, and we believe any of these movies we’ve listed here will make for a great game adaptation. And fans will love to play any game adapted from these movies we have listed and discussed above.
