From Russia With Love (video game) - James Bond WikiDescription:

From Russia With Love was developed by Electronic Arts and released on November 1, 2005 in North America. The game is based on the 1957 novel and the 1963 film From Russia with Love, it follows the storyline of the book and film, albeit adding in new scenes to make the game more action-oriented, as well as changing the affiliation of the main villains.

Additionally, it features many elements of earlier Bond films to recreate the feel of the era such as the jet-pack from Thunderball and the Aston Martin DB5 that debuted in Goldfinger.


From Russia With Love
is also notable in that it is the first video game to use Sean Connery's likeness as James Bond and the first to include all new voice work by the actor himself.

Plot summery:

One of the most obvious changes to the story for the video game is the absence of villainous organization SPECTRE, who played a vital role in the film version, but not in the novel version of From Russia With Love. Due to legal issues that have plagued the James Bond-series of films since 1963, the organization was renamed as OCTOPUS and appears to lack a central leader in the same vein as Ernst Stavro Blofeld. The SPECTRE name was tied up in a long-running dispute over the film rights to Thunderball, between United Artists/MGM and the now-deceased writer Kevin McClory.

The game begins with a standard pre-title sequence in which Elizabeth Stark, the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom's daughter, is kidnapped by OCTOPUS while attending a party. Fortunately, Bond was assigned to attend the party for just such an event, and he defeats OCTOPUS and rescues Stark.

Similar to the film, OCTOPUS has conceived a plan to embarrass British secret service agent 007 for the death of Dr. Julius No from the film, Dr. No, in which Dr. No was an agent of SPECTRE. The plan involves the theft of a Soviet encoding machine know as the Lektor with the help of a defecting Soviet agent, Tatiana Romanova. Romanova, however, is being used by OCTOPUS to lure James Bond into a trap; their goal is to let him obtain the Lektor and then ambush him for it, killing him in humiliating fashion as well. Romanova is sent by Rosa Klebb, an agent of the KGB (in both the novel and film, an agent of SMERSH) who has secretly defected to OCTOPUS. Her immediate subordinate, Donald "Red" Grant, protects Bond through the first half of the game and attacks him in the second. The game ends with a final assault on OCTOPUS headquarters.
