Maybe not a purchase but certainly a rental. While it might not be as good as some of its predecessors, it is a decent shooter and has been besmirched. If you are a 007 fan and you play it through, you will get some fun out of it. Don't be put off by the undeserved bad reviews. I've played almost all the 007 games and this one is just fine! Some people just expect too much these days.

i mean this game is one of the worst. Grapics are bad game play bad and i just felt had too give it a try being a fan of the other bond games. Well thanks too gamefly im not out of 60 bucks for this one.
What can I say that hasn't been said before? It may seem like this game was a lost hope after reading all the reviews...though the most shocking part was the neglect given to the love and care of one feature or more so a mission of the game.
Everything else was sub par, if not interesting at least to relive some great Bond moments. This very feature neglected in many reviews was the sheer spectacular moments of the last mission of the game (no, not Skyfall). Its Moonraker. The way they made the film work in game form was just awesome. It changed everything up with Scifi-esque uniforms like the film, all the way to fighting it out in zero gravity space. It was worth it just for that moment.
The most disappointing thing that bothered me like no other though was the fact that the game just ends after Moonraker. Straight to credits after your mission scores.
Seriously, they build up from the start, the moment where Bond gets shot in Skyfall (this is in the beginning, no spoilers here) and precedes into flash backs to his previous missions. Ok, cool....nope, wait until the second week of November to download the Skyfall DLC. Cool, what a giant F U.
Just rent this game and trudge through the swamp until you get to Moonraker. You'll enjoy it. That mission made the game a 7 out of 10. What have you got to lose? Its a rental!
