James Bond: The Spy Who Loved Me is a video game adaptation of the 1977 James Bond film The Spy Who Loved Me. The game was released for the Amiga, Atari ST, Amstrad CPC, Commodore 64, MS-DOS computers, Sega Master System and ZX Spectrum in 1990. A version was planned for PS1 but was cancelled.

The Spy Who Loved Me is a top-down shooter game in which the player navigates James Bond driving a modified Lotus Espirit. It features the characters from the film and some new characters.

Critical reception[edit]

The game received a good, but not excellent, reaction on the ZX Spectrum, with CRASH! giving it a 79% rating and saying "Good Mr. Bond, but not quite good enough to deserve an accolade.",[1] Sinclair User giving it 72% and saying "This one will leave you shaken but not stirred; A competent movie licence"[2] and Your Sinclair rating it at 76%, saying "Half good/half bad Bond game. There's quite a lot here though, so it's not bad value."[3] It was less well received on the Commodore 64, with Zzap!64 giving it a rating of 38%, describing it as "an uninspiring and unambitious conversion."[4]
