From Russia With Love for the PSP gives players the opportunity to experience the timeless fiction of the classic James Bond movie, From Russia With Love, starring Sean Connery as James Bond. Invest in your character and customize the ultimate Bond for a whole new level of gameplay options, including an all new single player mode consisting of 8 exciting missions, multiplayer mode with ad-hoc wireless, 16 new Bond challenges, several new unlockable characters, and classic Bond gadgets and weapons.

Dr. No

Dr. No is the eponymous villain in the first movie of the James Bond franchise. Dr. No set a precedent in the Bond fiction as 007’s megalomaniacal antagonist out for power, money or both. A scientist and inventor skilled in biology, atomic research, and aeronautics, Dr. No is also a brilliant and deadly tactician.

Xenia Onatopp

Xenia Onatopp was the feisty villainess in the classic 1995 film, Goldeneye. Xenia lives life "in the fast lane” and enjoys a good squeeze more than your average girl.


Francisco Scaramanga is the best and most sought after assassin in the world. His million dollar fee and dead-aim with his Golden Gun make put his services in high demand. Scaramanga is calm, always in control and generally polite natured…but when it comes to carrying out an assassination, he is cold-blooded and has nerves of steel.

Pussy Galore

Pussy Galore is Goldfinger's personal pilot. Pussy is a memorable Bond girl with a strong dislike for men. With her team of female pilots (Pussy Galore's Flying Circus), she helps to foil Goldfinger's plan to break into Fort Knox by replacing the canisters of deadly gas she was supposed to spray around the gold reserve with a harmless substitute.


One of the most famous and sinister of all of the Bond villains to date, Auric Goldfinger's remarkable planning and ruthless execution makes him more than a match for Bond's ingenuity. Goldfinger's plan to break into Fort Knox was perhaps one of the most daring to date.


Although not the best golf caddy in the world, Goldfinger's mute Korean manservant, Odd Job, makes up for it in many other ways. Remembered chiefly for his steel rimmed bowler hat, Odd Job is as close to an invulnerable opponent as 007 has ever faced.
