Quantum of Solace

Playstation Illustrated
9 November 2009
  • 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. This isn't the second coming of Goldeneye by any means. If I were to sum it up eloquently, Quantum of Solace is full of squandered potential.

James Bond 007: Quantum of Solace

ME Gamers
3 January 2009
  • 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 table, and it is for this very reason that every Bond game fails as it is compared, sometimes unfairly, to its great ancestor.

  • Excerpt: If there's one publisher that has the ability to craft some of the best first person shooters, it's definitely Activision. Housing the amazing next-generation Call of Duty engine, Activision can provide all of their developers an opportunity to avoid unnecessary tweaking and fine tuning, and allow them to concentrate on the adventure at hand.

  • Conclusion: A respectable, short lived game which does nothing to distinguish itself from the masses.

James Bond Quantum of Solace

  • Excerpt: Activision is the latest company responsible for the current James Bond epic to shoot its way into the gaming world in James Bond Quantum of Solace. Based on the current James Bond movie and the previous installment Casino Royale that stars Daniel Craig as this British secret agent, the title is quite refreshing when compared to other previous games.

  • 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.

Bond Is Back

GIN
20 November 2008
  • 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. The game opens with a shootout through the garden and into the house where Bond attempts to get some data off a computer. A self destruct goes off and he leaves the house to recapture Mr. White, who crawled away and was subsequently taken to a helicopter.

  • 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. The online play adds to an already intense single-player experience. This drink was not shaken, it was gently stirred until it was nearly perfect. Drink up Quantum of Solace, you won't be disappointed.

  • 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.

  • Excerpt: Quantum of Solace is the latest addition to the ever expanding catalogue of Bond games to follow the latest film release. However they all have something in common, they are all in the shadow of 'Goldeneye'. This is title that sets the acid test for all new releases, and whilst the previous Bond titles have been good (I even enjoyed 'From Russia with Love' that received its fair share of criticism) I think it is fair to say they never made the impact that 'Goldeneye' on...
