Nicola is the voice of Tracy di Vicenzo in the second game, On Her Majesty’s Secret Service. From the official press release, we have this information :
The second of six Bond movie-inspired missions to be featured in this year’s upcoming 007™ Legends video game has been revealed as On Her Majesty’s Secret Service. True love is hard to find but James Bond has finally found his equal in the beautiful Tracy di Vicenzo, the daughter of European crime syndicate head Marc-Ange Draco — Bond’s key contact for tracking down criminal mastermind Ernst Stavro Blofeld. After wooing Tracy and their ensuing whirlwind romance, they jet set off to the Swiss Alps as Bond pursues Blofeld. It’s here, in a picturesque Alpine setting, that gamers encounter an avalanche of action. Blofeld is aware of Bond’s undercover ruse and kidnaps Tracy, luring Bond into a rescue mission involving a fast-paced downhill ski chase and a confrontation in a high-flying cable car, which also uncovers Blofeld’s master plan to release a deadly virus in five of the world’s largest cities. With the help of Tracy’s father, players must infiltrate Blofeld’s private research facility in the Swiss Alps, thwart the release of the virus and save Tracy before it’s too late.
If you are familiar with the James Bond franchise, either the novels and/or the movies, you will know that Tracy is the woman Bond fell in love with and married in On Her Majesty’s Secret Service but sadly, the bride was killed by one of Bond’s enemies on their wedding day. In the film version, Tracy was played by Diana Rigg.
Nicola’s part in this computer game is very small. If you are not into computer games (specially the more violent ones which require you to beat your opponents to a pulp with your joystick), you can watch the game walkthroughs posted by some of the gamers which are uploaded on YouTube. Nicola’s voice can be heard in the following segments :

Nicola as the ultimate Bond girl, i.e. Mrs. James Bond! Now if only the powers that be would cast her in a live action film version of the next Bond movie.
