Blood Stone, 007 Legends and Quantum of Solace pulled from Steam, as GoldenEye 007 Reloaded goes missing from Xbox LIVE Marketplace.

Very strange indeed.

Sounds like Activision is getting rid of the 007 license. Thank god if so! There has been a few good James Bond games over the years, but ever so recently been crap. The last decent James Bond game I have played was Blood Stone, which I really did enjoy, shame about Bizarre Creations however.
I think Sony could snap this up and turn it into exclusive. Get one of their top triple AAA studios behind the game, say Naughty Dog? And oh my... I think we'll have a classy bond that will easily surpass the daunting 007 Goldeneye N64 off its shoulders. We all have our dreams

I never understood why Activision never used Sledgehammer or Infinity Ward to make a Bond game.
I thought that was the plan personally when they bought the rights, have another big shooter franchise to milk.

I thought Quantum of Solace was ok, I liked the rooftop bits, anyway.

Yeah it was alright and Blood Stone in some parts but Legends did look that bad. But for a franchise to be totally destroyed and not well used, it isn't nice.
There was no excuse as there are lots of films to use and villans etc which I felt Goldeneye got right with it's unlocks where you could access new levels after doing the game on certain difficulties.
It also did levels outside of the film and some of it's gaps, it's aged now but some of it's levels are still really good.
The other Bond games since have been no where near as good and have been poorly handled.

Only the Wii Goldeneye seemed to get it right. Odd, really, seeing as it was otherwise of bereft of good shooters.

I recall rather enjoying Goldeneye: Rogue Agent on PS2 back in the day... a bog standard FPS, of course, but the dual wielding was particularly effective/fun! That was the last one I did enjoy, though... the terrible From Russia With Love decimated any love for the franchise as a game series that I may have had.

Last proper decent James Bond game I played would be Everything or Nothing. A cracking third person shooter and even got Pierce Brosnan and some other actors to lend their voices to the game. I never did play From Russia With Love, always wanted too mind, but never got round to playing it. I do want to play 007 Legends, as its just the Bond fan within me to play it. Me being me rather liking the mediocre games, as I believe in the public eye people won't try games if reviewers or so 'claimed' to be reviewers slate the game.
People need to take a chance and see if they like it. That's what true gaming is about, unearthing that hidden gem!

I played Blood Stone a few weeks back and thought it was decent. I've got a couple of Bond games from a pile of PS2 games I was given a while back, From Russia With Love and another with Brosnan on the cover I believe.
