It is really annoying that Activision is licensing one of the most valuable properties around and they release trash. I don't know if Eurocom is just a horrible developer or they aren't given proper time/resources.
This is James Bond. If you do it right the game could rival Call of Duty in popularity. Stop tying the game to movies, hire a good development company, and watch the thing sell.
The game isn't complete garbage, but it just lacks in every single way....let me count them.
1) subpar graphics
2) no story
3) controls are sloppy (cover system especially)
4) garbage AI
5) laggy feeling multiplayer
6) just general lack of polish on everything
7) last mission is releasing as DLC on 11/9
There really aren't any pros.
The idea of being Bond in several of his movies is a offer I couldn't pass up. After enjoying Goldeneye Reloaded this was a game I couldn't wait to play. I'll admit at first I was it looked like I would be giving this game a low rating but affter a hour or so I started enjoying it. Despite its grahics, action, and gameplay, Their was a few things I didn't like. Such as the controls started to get annoying, when I was using my phone cycling through its different function I would be taking fire so instead of switching back to my weapon I would keep cycling through the phone. The one thing I hated the most was the covering system. As you may know the covering system worked well in GoldenEye Reloaded, but on here you could only cover, effectivly, behind certain objects. Sure you can crouch behind anything but most of the time you would still get hit by the bullets so you might as well run-and-gun. One aspect of James Bond I like is the fighting scenes. Which in this game they give a few moments when you would fist fight a enemy. Unfortantly its very dull, boring, too easy on any difficulty. This is one aspect that had so much potential but fail miserably. This game is a good rent lots of action that puts you in the shoes of Mr. Bond and takes you to memorable place and face famous villians.
