The single player is very cinematic and exciting retaining the old school feel with modern touches. I think new fans and old fans will be very happy.
As for the multiplayer, it is amazing! It isn't redefining the genre by any means but it is just plain fun and highly addictive. The cover system works perfect and I really like the credit system to upgrade your weapons. It uses the same engine as Call Of Duty 4 and since I played the hell out of that jumping into a Team Conflict match in Quantum Of Solace feels very natural.
Even though Gears Of War 2 will be coming out soon and I will be spending most of my time playing that I am still very glad I bought this. Its a refreshing change from the games that try to do too much. Overall, highly recommended.
I must say that if Casino Royale hadn't been a phenomenal release, then expectations for this game would not have been as high. My expectations for the game were very high, especially after experiancing thrills from 3rd person shooters like Gears of War and Dead Space as well as 1st person shooters like Call of Duty 4 and Far Cry 2. Not only did I have games to compare this game to, but I had found out that the original makers of the Bond videogames, Electronic Arts, had sold the rights to the franchise to the better known Activision and Treyarch. For those of you that are not familiar with these two companies listed above, they were extremely successful in their latest release, Call of Duty 4 Modern Warfare.
Qos starts off the story right after Bond tracks down Mr. White to his mansion at the end of the Casino Royale movie. I know what your thinking, and yes, the best action scene from the first movie is in the game:(Bond chases down the bomb-maker with scars on his face through a constuction site and eventually to the Mbatu Embassy). The cut-scenes are brilliant and epic which ultimately keeps the plot closely tied with the upcoming QoS movie.
The most innovative feature in QoS is the ability to transition from the traditional Bond 1st person view to the 3rd person view while wall covering. The wall covering feature takes a bit of time to master because not all objects can be used for cover, unlike Gears of War. Those of you that have watch the movie have noticed that Daniel Craig as Bond is very physical, so Activision and Treyarch did not forget to add stunningly realistic melee combat.Read more ›
It's a strange game, though...it's really a step backward from the EA games, though it still retains the general feel of the earlier entries like Agent Under Fire and Nightfire. The innovations that EA brought to Everything or Nothing are completely absent. That game's engine, which had you control a third-person Pierce Brosnan (more reminiscent of the GTA games, and an engine that EA would further develop with the excellent The Godfather), had things like 'Bond Vision', Q-gadgets, and a far, far better hand-to-hand combat element. QoS returns us to the first-person mode, so you just see the gun barrel. Granted, there is a cover mode, which has Daniel Craig suddenly slide behind a wall or a box, but it's hardly anything new (it does work well in firefights, though).
There isn't a gadget in sight, and though the new Bond films are moving toward grittier action and less gimmicky tech-toys, for a video game it'd have been nice to incorporate something whacky like the Q-Laser/Claw/Spider/whatever. Also, the hand-to-hand action on QoS is very strange...Read more ›
Then comes Quantum of Solace. I absolutley love this game. I have had it for over two weeks now and there have only been about 2 days that I have not played it.
First off, the campaign mode. A very entertaining and very fun mode to play. The only draw back of it is that it is on the short side. Since it is very fun though, you can play on a lesser difficulty first, then go back and beat it again for the achievements/enjoyment of it. The game is set just after the events of Casino Royale. You first play through a couple levels from Quantum of Solace, and then go back and play through Casino Royale, then go back and finish off QoS. The game keeps you very interested with the fast paced, fun gameplay and the interesting cut scenes.
This game is a first person shooter with hints of a third person shooter. At first this was a negative for me as I am not a huge fan of TPS, but it is done in a fantastic way. There is a cover system that allows you to take cover behind pillers and boxes and walls and whatever else you can hide behind. This allows you to blind fire as well as peek out when the time is right to conserve your health and make perfect shots. This system is also in multiplayer. Also there are fight scenes that you are able to "control". I say that because there will be a whole fight scene, but you will only be allowed to hit about two buttons, the rest is done for you. This is a bit weak, but does not take away from the fun of the game.
The multiplayer is VERY fun and addictive.Read more ›

I didn't like this game. Perhaps it would appeal to newer or younger gamers. It just didn't give the James Bond feel of the older games, or the movies. SorryPublished 1 month ago by John Scout
