[edit] Plot Summary

The game holds a very simple plot, it opens with a cut-scene in which you see Elizabeth Stark (The daughter of the British Prime Minister) is captured at a party by the organization OCTOPUS. Luckily the protagonist of the game, movie and novel is present, Bond had been assigned to attend the party to prevent any such happenings. Bond ultimately defeats OCTOPUS and saves Stark with ease, preventing the terrible hostage situation.

The game then takes a completely different approach to the overall plot. OCTOPUS has planned to embarrass 007 for the killing of Dr. Julius (In the film Dr. No). They steal a Soviet coding machine known as Lektor. They then plan to let Bond re-capture it, then ambush him and make him look foolish before killing him. The game finishes with Bond assaulting OCTOPUS headquarters.
