Despite the passion people have for the bond movies - 007 Legends doesn't live up to the bond hype. The mash up of the various bond movies doesn't really work and having Daniel Craig wanna be playing Bond in movies where other actors portrayed the role was a bad choice.
Some of the movies in the game don't even live up to the movies themselves. Example: Die Another Day - they made Halle Berry's character Jinx a white girl instead of being loyal to the movie.
Gameplay sucks and they tried too much to make it feel like Goldeneye but it just doesn't work. The stealth is terrible because when you knock out someone, you can not move the body to avoid detection. Even the slightest move behind an object will cause alert.
Overall this game is not worth your time. There are other games you can spend time playing.
Thank you Activision for ruining James Bond!
This game is a slap in the face to gamers and James Bond fans alike.
Graphics are horrible. Not even close to being good. Gameplay is really bad and laggy. sounds is appalling.
Using Daniel Craig's "likeness" is a slap too as the guy doing the voice doesn't even sound like Craig.
I played through most of the first mission and couldn't take anymore. Let a friend play it and he too hated it, told me to send it back. Same repetitive QTE boss fights, bad AI, and really bad hit boxes on enemy AI. Had to put it back in it's envelope.

Boy did I want to love this game (I'm pretty easy to please with 007 games because I'm a James Bond nut). But it was like playing a game from 2001... poor quality graphics, scattered storytelling... and I always felt the eye-line was way way too low. Like I was in a constant crouch position, even when standing up. I wouldn't even recommend it as a rental.
