Licensed to play
As the latest James Bond game - 007 Legends - shoots its way to shop shelves this week ahead of Skyfall's release on 26 October, we decided jump aboard the nostalgia train with a look back at Bond-theme games from yesteryear.

007 Quantum of Solace
Now that was a game that was way better than the film!!
