  1. Overall, Quantum of Solace is sure to please fans of the movie, series, or those looking for a solid action game on the Nintendo DS.
  2. Quantum of Solace is another great game from Vicarious Visions that not only exceeds its console cousin, it actually enhances the secret agent experience with some clever touch-based gameplay that makes the most of the DS system.
  3. Quantum of Solace is a solid effort to bring Bond to the DS, but there are a few looming problems with the translation.
  4. Thanks to the third-person view, the pace is slowed down considerably from its first-person brethren, which allows for a different gameplay perspective than the typical James Bond title. The upgrade system also really allows the player to make his Bond however he wants him to be.

    Quantum of Solace isn't a bad little action game on DS, but it is noticeably less cunning and sleek as the agent that inspires it.
  6. Quantum of Solace ultimately fails to provide a satisfying experience but not for lack of trying. It’s a classic "almost" game because there are a few things the game does right.
  7. Some nice ideas and a relatively fresh approach to the Bond franchise, but there are just too many rough edges to the core action to recommend a purchase.
  8. Nintendo Power

    The game's ideas are good, but the execution doesn't cut it. [Jan 2009, p.90]
  9. There are some fun gameplay ideas in the DS version of Quantum of Solace, but the execution plainly leaves too much to be desired. The cutscenes artificially connect the missions together, and the story makes little or no sense. The game, at various points, is either too easy or too hard, and its only real challenge comes from the inaccuracy of all its gameplay elements.
  10. 40
    Do yourself a favor and go see the flick instead. It's cheaper and will give you bigger bang for your buck than this misfire.
