I like that idea! That's really great! Kind of like Star Wars The Force Unleashed if you've ever played that. You get to choose whether Starkiller murders Darth Vader or if he takes on The Emperor to save the Rebel Alliance. I could definitely see the whole Bond/Scaramanga thing, and it'd be interesting to play the reverse scenario!
What do you think of this level set-up if this were how it went down? It's loose, and there would probably have to be added material, but this is the general idea.
Level 1 (Florida, PTS) OBJECTIVE: Defeat Sanchez's thugs on the airstrip and capture Sanchez's plane using the helicopter hook
Level 2 (Krest's Marine Research Center) OBJECTIVE: Stealthily infiltrate the research center and acquire information on Felix's injury; defeat Ed Kilifer
Level 3 (The WaveKrest) OBJECTIVE: Infiltrate the WaveKrest and acquire intelligence; defeat Krest's divers and hijack the plane with the drug money
Level 4 (Barrlehead Bar) OJECTIVE: Defeat Dario and his thugs, escape bar with Pam
Level 5 (Isthmus Casino) OBJECTIVE: Spy on Sanchez's meeting with the Orientals and avoid detection at all costs; set up a sniper position and take out Sanchez (attempt); fight the ninjas
Level 6: (WaveKrest): OBJECTIVE: Infiltrate the WaveKrest again, this time avoiding detection once more and setting up incriminating evidence against Krest himself
Level 7 (The Lab): OBJECTIVE: Escape the cocaine crusher trap and defeat Dario ( a little different from the movie to add action), escape before the lab blows
Level 8 (The Tankers) OBJECTIVE: Destroy the tanker trucks; kill Sanchez's remaining forces and defeat Sanchez in a final boss fight
I would very much like to see this happen. LTK was a great film, and I would love for Dalton to be featured in a game. Plus, as @00Beast showed with his excellent breakdown of how the levels could be set up for a LTK game, the film is full of excellent moments that could be translated into exciting action for a video game.
Thanks @Chuck! Even though there are only eight levels as of now, the game makers would have to throw in either some extra levels that didn't happen in the movie (like the FRWL game) or expand upon certain things in the movie that might have happened or were left up to our imagination.
I could definitely see a LTK game coming off a bit better than the FRWL game a few years back. First off, I think that the film lends itself better to a videogame, with more sequences that could be either expanded upon or even rather faithfully translated to the medium, as it's more of an action-oriented film than the relatively action-less FRWL. Plus, I think Dalton's voice now sounds more like what it did back in the late 1980s than Connery's did when he voiced Bond in the FRWL game, as it was obvious that his voice was fading on him at that point, and it was quite jarring to hear such an older-sounding voice coming from a character model of a 30 or 40-something Bond.
Yeah, Connery's voice was full of those hilarious yet classic Connery "sh" sounds! I first played the FRWL game before I saw the movie, and once I saw the movie, I was so surprised to hear the younger Connery voice! But yes, Dalton would work well for a game rendition of LTK, and I have a feeling that his likeness would be fun to control and play as.
I'd totally play this game.
There would also need to be a "hair cheat" in which you could give Tim a sensible haircut.
It has nostalgic value and that is about it
- Connery in "Dr. No", FRWL, "Goldfinger","Thunderball", YOLT, DAF.
- Lazenby in OHMSS... etc.
And for this, continue the "007 : Legends" approach : one disc, some missions... otherwise make a disc "Connery version" (6), then a "Moore version" (7) then "Brosnan version" (4) and finally "Last Trio version" which means 6 missions as well.
The very best of all would be a swap of actor in a mission (Lazenby in Skyfall, Brosnan in Thunderball, for instance) considering qualities of each Bond actor (personality, personal moves, sense of humour, physical skills, psychology) and see how each would adapt on others missions... and still being the One and Only 007 character.
I must be joking.
Instead we got Timothy Watson?
And a very painful-to-play reminder of what could have been.
Each disc would be formatted exactly the same, with differing levels and such according to the movies on the disc, obviously.
The highlight of the game, aside from the single player missions (being the core of the game), would be the multiplayer; it would be extremely similiar to the multiplayer of 007 Nightfire, but updated and made even better, of course! (though it's tough to expand upon perfection, haha!)
These would be the playable maps for each of the 5 discs:
Disc One- Crab Key, Gypsy Camp, Fort Knox, Palmyra, The Disco Volante, Volcano Lair, Osato Chemicals
Disc Two- Piz Gloria, The Whyte House Willard Whyte's Oil Rig, San Monique, Scaramanga's Island, Atlantis, The Liparus
Disc Three- Drax's Space Station, St. Cyril's, Locque's Warehouse, The Monsoon Palace, Main Strike Mine, Afghan Airbase, Whitaker's Stronghold
Disc Four- Sanchez's Drug Lab, Janus Jungle Base, Stealth Ship, Carver's Printing Press, The Maiden's Tower, The Ice Palace, Graves' Plane
Disc Five- Casino Royale, Miami Airport, Hotel Perla de las Dunas, SkyFall Mansion
Along with the maps, there would be a plethora of characters to play as, both allies and villains, and much like AUF or NF, there would be AI bots- I'd probably up the count from 6 bots to 12, so as to make the battles more intense.
These characters would be playable for the maps on their respective discs (all Bond and Felix Leiter incarnations are implied)

This. Brosnan should also do a Casino Royale game to get back at Craig (ruined Goldeneye Reloaded).
