  • Summary: Set in the original 60's Bond era, the game features movie-based missions as well as original, action-intensive sequences, a broad and deep variety of gameplay, fully-integrated vehicles, social multiplayer experiences, gorgeous women, and classic, upgradeable weapons and gadgetry with modern mechanics. Players will create and manipulate Bond in a living world based on the timeless fiction of the classic James Bond movie. Invest in your character and customize the ultimate Bond for a whole new level of gameplay options. Sean Connery, the original Bond, reprises his role as the dapper Mi6 agent in this innovative, retro-styled and highly anticipated console title from the infamous Bond franchise. Collapse

  1. It looks good, it plays good, and it does handheld multiplayer as well as anything out there. Bond and PSP make perfect bedfellows. [Apr 2006, p.107]
  2. For the most part, From Russia With Love is an enjoyable gaming experience even though it is a rather short one.
  3. While it’s great to play through the most exciting moments of such a great Bond film, the game’s various faults just get in the way of enjoying this one.
  4. 60
    A pretty good port is a far cry from a strong original game, but fans looking for a quick fix of shooting action should find that this game meets the standard.
  5. Bond is back, and this time on the PSP. While it's great to play Connery on the handheld, it misses some of the memorable elements from its console counterpart.
  6. A decent game that's absolutely massacred by the lack of a second analog stick.
  7. Probably the clearest way I can describe this game is by saying that I had a really tough time finding the motivation to play through it even though its core story is incredibly short (there are sub-missions and stuff, and the multiplayer, but the single player main story is only about 5 hours).

    This is a really fun game and I'm not saying this because I work EA - it's just as good if not better than every PSP game out there right now. Expand

    This isn't a bad shooter for the PSP. The graphics are what you should expect for a PS2 to PSP port, the controls are well done (only complaint is the camera rotation is a little bit slow at times), and the gameplay is solid. It's not SOCOM (the best PSP shooter available), but it's a very good game to play if you didn't play the console version. Expand
