After his great success with The Living Daylights, Timothy Dalton performed License to Kill in what was the second of the three films he had signed to be James Bond. Various legal disputes between producers caused the contract to expire, and although it was offered again, it declined to be GoldenEye's 007.
Like the previous one, the game based on the movie was made by Domark, a company that I never got to get the hang of, if I tell you the truth. I suppose it would happen to many of you, or to all ... There are companies that you do not like the presentation of the games, the styles of the menus, the graphics ... Or they just do not tell you anything. It didn't happen to me alone with this company, far from it, but it did.
That being said, for Spectrum +3 there weren't many releases, and there were times when I would go for anything, hoping I wasn't wrong. So I bought it and took an Erbe T-shirt as a gift.
And that was the biggest of the rewards, because I didn't spend any time playing the game, and I think I didn't even pass the first phase (although seeing how easy it is, maybe it's one of those false memories that grow as it happens time).
Now that I write these lines, I would play a foot that, if the game had been done by Ocean, I would have even finished it. I was 13 years old, it is what it is.
Converting to MSX is the usual direct port (if it consoles you, so is the version for BBC Micro, although you may think that this is a problem for the English, not ours). A good port, it must be said; it preserves the sound of the Spectrum version and the speed is hardly diminished. Something is something, don't you think?
