Summary: Maybe I had too high of expectations for this game. I really wanted it to be fun and for the first mission it was. I could sneak around, take out enemies either while targeting them or shooting blindly. I could.... no that's about all I could do.
Summary: I haven't played a Bond game since Nightfire, which, in spite of its problems, was a decent game, though hardly a standout. I had hoped that in the intervening years, the Bond series might have come up with better gameplay. Which it did, sort of. The cover system is interesting.
Summary: If you are running XP and Explorer, be aware that you could have serious issues and no fixes have been made available as of Feb 2010. Only option seems to be to uninstall explorer completely and use another browser, at least until you complete the game. Activision confirms this.
Summary: This game was out in 2008 and it's pretty clear it's dated once you play it. The graphics are very pixelated and the voice acting is subpar. There is no caption so it can be difficult to follow the dialog if you have the volume turned down.
Summary: Way too short! I was finished after only 6-8 hours of playing. controls are kind of clunky...not intuitive. Gun selection is good. Bond's assignments are interesting and complicated enough to be a bit of a challenge (walking across boards is challenging).
Summary: The advertorial review is promising: a cover system, stealth, intelligent AI. The reality is that this is less of a game than it is an interactive movie. After the tutorial, the very first game mission demands that the player chase a fleeing enemy and catch him with all haste.
