Gimpy Graphics, Fun Gameplay, Good Actors = OK Game
21 January 2009
Summary: PROS Using Cover - QoS uses the Call of Duty 4 engine, but unlike COD4, you can position your character behind cover and blindfire. This radically changes gameplay, allowing you to move very close to enemies without being killed. Your character can run and slide into cover as well, making you a hard-to-hit target. Nice! Voice Acting – Activision went all the way and obtained the original actors for the voice overs, except for perhaps Eva Green.
Summary: When I first put in this, I thought it would be another stupid game that has nothing to do with the movie. But actually, I was wrong. In my opinion it isn't the best bond game out there, but you can tell it tried. The thing I hate most about this game is that you can't explore or open closed doors. Everybody keeps saying that your enemies will not take cover but when I play they do. The graphics looks like they didn't even try.
Summary: it just isn't what i expected...the new goldeneye? I don't think so...I mean go see the movie first, and you will see why the game just doesn't live up to the bond name in the way that a bond game should? remember how great goldeneye was? yeah this really shouldn't ever be compared to it. Better than russia with love...no goldeneye!
Summary: Ok so you pick up Quantum of Solace expecting it to be a great game. You play the first level and you love it. Thats how I felt. The second level the same and then I got a little shaky. First of all you do the same thing each level. Sneak around and shooting. Its fun at first but then you realize I've been doing the same thing throughout the whole game. First of all the game doesn't have any intensity.
Summary: A very short game. There isn't really anything to rave about with this game. As Bond you just kind of go around shooting a.i each chapter. You do not get to drive. They did well not spoiling the movie, and they do a throw back to Casino Royale with a mission. The game was a little upsetting. Rent the game, don't do what I did and buy it. Unless you are a real die hard fan, then this will fit perfectly in your collection.
Excerpt: "This Game Is an fairly average shooter nothing really spectacular Poor AI in my opinion no flanking will camp and shoot from cover.Fairly short single player campaign with the addition of casino royal to prolong the story line works really well, End of level bosses can be fairly easy challenge and not really satisfactory.Although this is a first person shooter works really well with the 3rd person cover veiw.Graphics Can be a little poor with scenery ...
Excerpt: "Bond games have certainly been really really bad. It's left most of us thinking to ourselves 'was Goldeneye a fluke?' and perhaps it was. The fantastic multiplayer was tagged on right at the end of production after all. Maybe that's why there was no Casino Royale game upon the films release, or perhaps the action was just too sparse to make an action game from. You can tell it was going to be hard to win me over with Quantum of Solace, but to be fair ...
Pros: Unique and interesting multiplayer, different gameplay elements save it from repetitiveness
Cons: Fairly poor graphics, too simple, can be extremely easy
