Eric Vs. 365 - Day 173 - 007 Everything or Nothing

It took several games, but eventually Electronic Arts stopped trying to copy GoldenEye 007 and just make their own James Bond game and the result was one of the best Bond games ever. Everything or Nothing is a big budget original Bond adventure with a Hollywood cast, high production values, a unique new gameplay style, and a fantastic story. Read more and watch gameplay right here.

Original song. Original story. Cast of Hollywood actors. Impeccable presentation. EA threw a ton of money at Everything or Nothing and it really shows. The cover-based shooter third-person gameplay was full of cinematic moments and every level had enough epic set pieces to fill a typical Bond movie. It was crazy over the top and exciting and just really darn fun to play. 

As beloved as GoldenEye is, it's a pretty simple bare bones shooter with a James Bond skin plastered on it propped up by the incredibly addictive multiplayer. It doesn't really hold a candle to Everything or Nothing in terms of actually replicating the James Bond experience. Everything or Nothing is the best Bond game.
