I thought Quantum of Solace was a better game. The driving portions of this game were pretty bad. The cutscene graphics are horrible, what is wrong with their faces? I think the graphics are worse overall than QoS. The stupid thing with the cell phone xray vision got super annoying.
Daniel Craig totally phoned in his performance on this. Sounds like he is reading the news. No inflection or any emotion.
All in all, if you haven't played Quantum of Solace yet, play that. This one is strictly mediocre, and if the same developers do the next one I am skipping it.
It's hard to be too harsh on this game, since the 007 games of late have been going downhill and this one is the best of them out there I'd say. It was a pleasant play through.
Graphics are nothing to write home about, good or bad. They work well.
Sound is great, especially since all the voice actors are here to add to the presentation.
Gameplay is where I have my complaints. First, this game suffers from console dumbing in spades; regenerative health is a cornerstone to this title, so much so that the game throws a big 'YOU ARE HURT! GET BEHIND COVER!' center screen every time you're near death.
The car scenes drove me nuts, they felt sloppy and the best handling vehicle for me ended up being a tow truck? OK then.
Takedowns were cool but made the game a bit easy, even on Hard mode.
Story was a bit vague; I still don't recall how this related to diamonds; it had more to do with biochemical warfare.
Solid shooting and stealth makes this worth a run through th
Surprised by this one for sure. Very stylish cover based shooter with a solid story and great voice acting by the original cast. A little short, and pretty easy, but still very satisfying. Absolutely worth a play through.
A very competent cover-based third person shooter. This game was made in lieu of a 3rd movie because of the bankruptcy proceedings for MGM, so it has the actors doing the voices and it all feels very authentic. The controls are solid, the driving sections feel good (the dev made Blur as well), and the game does a good job of making you feel like a badass like James Bond. Only good for one playthrough, but definitely worth playing through once. Multiplayer is still active and its amusing, but nothing special.
I really enjoyed playing through this game. It had solid mechanics, some stealth elements, awesome driving sequences, and cool set-pieces. Better plot than the last movie. It didn't have a ton of longevity, but I recommend giving it a playthrough.
Not a bad game. It was kinda fun but way too easy and short. It only took me a week to get through it and that's only because I barely play video games Monday-Friday and was purposely dying in an effort to repeat parts so I can get achievements. If you don't care about achievements and free time on your hands you can finish this quickly. An ideal gamefly/blockbuster online rental.
I was pleasantly surprised by this game. After reading the reviews from critics I was very down on it. After playing through the game I can honestly say that it was a lot of fun. The worst parts (for me) were actually the driving sequences. Which I found odd given Bizzare Creations pedigree for racing games. It uses a similar system to Splinter Cell: Conviction where you build take down points for melee kills so you can shoot up to 3 enemies in succession without really having to aim. The system works well and I found that the combat (both melee and gun) to be very enjoyable. The graphics are a bit dated and nothing about the sound really stands out. But if your looking for a quick (5-6 hr), fun, Bond game you probably cant find better on a next gen console.
The game is a lot of fun, but if you play on any difficulty below 007 it's to easy, and over in about 4 hours. The racing levels are a lot of fun the first couple times playing, and the online is basically empty.
