GoldenEye: Rogue Agent is a James Bond video game developed and published by Electronic Arts. The player takes the role of an ex-MI6 agent who is recruited by Auric Goldfinger, a member of a powerful unnamed criminal organization, to assassinate his rival Dr. No. Several other characters from the Bond film series make appearances throughout the game in a non-canonical setting, including Pussy Galore, Oddjob, and Xenia Onatopp as well as Francisco Scaramanga, playing a Q type character with the voice and likeness of Christopher Lee, who played the same character in 1974's The Man with the Golden Gun.
Rogue Agent was preceded by the critically acclaimed Bond game Everything or Nothing which featured the likeness and voice talents of Pierce Brosnan and Willem Dafoe.
Rogue Agent is largely considered to be an attempt to recreate the success of one of the best-selling video games in recent history, GoldenEye 007, which was a first-person shooter for the Nintendo 64 based on the Bond film GoldenEye. Aside from the character Xenia Onatopp, the Uplink multiplayer level, and the fact that both involve a good agent going bad, GoldenEye: Rogue Agent actually has nothing to do with either the film GoldenEye or its video game adaptation, although his scarred appearance considerably resembles Sean Bean's portrayal of rogue agent Alec Trevelyan in that film.
