James Bond: Quantum of Solace
8 June 2012
Excerpt: Daniel Craig has proven James Bond is tougher than we all imagined. He helped change the character from the womanizer that Pierce Brosnan was in his movies into the badass rough real human that we know today.
Excerpt: When Activision announced that there would be a game based on the new Bond film, Quantum of Solace I thought to myself "Well, it has been a long time since we had a 007 game. I hope this one turns out ok." Well, Activision and Treyarch did deliver on one thing. This is a James Bond game.
Excerpt: First Impressions My reaction is James Bond… the name has become synonymous with action-packed movies in the same way it has with disappointing games. After Golden Eye, a legend in the FPS genre, every game has promised to build upon this solid foundation and bring an even better experience to the...
Excerpt: If there's one publisher that has the ability to craft some of the best first person shooters, it's definitely Activision.

Excerpt: It’s hard not to remember the N64 classic "Golden Eye". A game that not only become the biggest game on the system, but it defined the way we all play first person shooters on a console. Now over ten …
Excerpt: At the end of the Casino Royale movie, perennial spy James Bond (played by Daniel Craig) shoots Mr. White and captures him. The game Quantum of Solace (QoS) starts right at that moment, and I wish the movie did as well.
Conclusion: So give credit to Activision for seeing something good and give credit to MGM Interactive for making something good. Quantum of Solace is a fantastic game that isn't perfect, but it's a great example of how a movie licensed game should be.
Conclusion: THE VERDICT: Relentlessly unoriginal but well turned out. The online multiplayer is robust enough to offset the slender single player story, and Bond hasn't carried off a firefight so well since GoldenEye. Not essential, then, but worth a second glance.
