It's an understatement to say that gamers have been long-starved of a great James Bond game - or really any Bond game period.
Indeed, the last 007 video game was released way back in 2012, though in the 30 years prior, fans certainly had their pick of the litter, with barely a year passing without a new Bond game hitting stores.
The quality of the literally dozens of Bond games has always been wildly all over the place, and so separating the wheat from the chaff is no easy feat.
For the purposes of clarity, we'll be excluding a few entries: the largely unavailable (and unofficial) 1982 text adventure Shaken But Not Stirred, the 1986 abandonware text game James Bond 007: Goldfinger, the 1995 GoldenEye Tiger Electronics handheld game, and the two rush-job ports of The World Is Not Enough for PS1 and Game Boy Color. Gross.
And so, we count down the 24 Bond games actually worth discussing from worst to best, while reminding fans just how freaking desperate they are for a new title. Make it happen, somebody...
