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: 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!
Excerpt: I have been a fan of the James Bond series since I saw The World is Not Enough at the cinema in 1999. Although James Bond video games have tended not to follow the films in recent years (From Russia with Love (2005) being the first to use a Bond film for the basis of its plot since The World is Not Enough on Ps1 and N64 (1999), 007 Quantum Of Solace is unique in that it uses 2 films as the basis for its plot (2006 film Casino Royale and 2008 film Quantum Of Solace).
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 looking a little...
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.
Pros: Unique and interesting multiplayer, different gameplay elements save it from repetitiveness
Cons: Fairly poor graphics, too simple, can be extremely easy
Quantum of Solace is an unoriginal but good game, all the same.

Excerpt: Movie games have a terrible reputation. They are usually rushed and short. There are a few exceptions, though, and Quantum of Solace is one of those exceptions. It is just another first-person game, but the well-designed levels and variety of guns make it a good game. Gameplay Quantum of Solace is similar to a lot of other games, especially FPS games. You play as James Bond. As I said, you are in a first-person person perspective.
Pros: Good campaign with well designed levels, great online modes and maps, plenty of guns .
Cons: Campaign is very short, it is an unoriginal game .
