This is a good game (if you like James Bond). It is a 3rd person shooter with a cover system (with some driving sections thrown in).
It does not revolutionize anything....but who wouldn't like to be Bond.
1) You get to play as James Bond.
1) the multiplayer is bland and a little clunky
2) the graphics are dated
Honestly I wasnt expecting much from this game but as it turns out, it was quite surprising. I found that despite it being a very linear game, I had a lot of fun. I have to say i loved the chase scenes with bond behind the wheel most of all. Dialogue was great. the mixture of that plus stealth and open combat really gives the player a good James Bond experience. what i found i didnt like about the game was the story was rather short and the game is quite easy. I played on hard difficulty and wasnt much of a challenge. there is no upgrades on anything whatsoever in this game so i found it kind of shallow. I found it upsetting that the enemies were able to hurl grenades at me but bond cannot use them for any reason which would have come in handy in many situations. I thought the focus kill feature was cool just wish i could have at least upgrade that to get more slots but oh well i guess they made it like that for a reason.
I gave this game a 7, probably more of a 6.5 though.....suggest rent only, you would be pi$$ed if you bought it
This latest James Bond offering has a lot going for it for fans of the famous spy. The graphics and sounds are amazing, and the story is worthy of a hollywood script. I would have rated this game higher if it were not for the simplistic nature of the game. It's a basic take cover and shoot the bad guys, and the scenario is played repeatedly. The only break you get is the occasional vehicle you get to control which amounts to no more than car chases. The controls are smooth and very responsive and the sound effects are loud and realistic. Not a big variety of weapons and all the bad guys can be taken out with a perfectly timed head shot from your Walter PPK. Your smartphone acts as your database and compass. You can hack PCs with it, find where to go next, scan items, and see where the bad guys are. Roger Moore would be proud. Those willing to give this game a go will find a decent action adventure that can be finished in a few sittings.
