From Russia with Love is also notable in that it is the first video game to use Sean Connery’s likeness as James Bond and the first to include all new voice work by the actor.

One of the most obvious changes to the story for the video game is the absence of the villainous organisation S.P.E.C.T.R.E. who played a vital role in the film version, but not the novel version of From Russia with Love. Due to legal issues that have plagued the James Bond series of films since 1963, the organisation was renamed as OCTOPUS and appears to lack a central leader in the same vein as Ernst Stavro Blofeld. The film rights to S.P.E.C.T.R.E. and the film Thunderball, are owned by Kevin McClory.

The game begins with a standard pre-title sequence in which Elizabeth Stark, the British Prime Minister’s daughter, is kidnapped by OCTOPUS while attending a party.
Fortunately, Bond was assigned to attend the party for just such an event, and he defeats OCTOPUS and rescues Stark.
