Jan 4, 2013Quite honestly...one of the most blandest, frustrating, un-Bond-like experiences ever to grace an optical disc, 007 Legends disappoints on virtually every level, with an occasional high point comes a multitude of low points. However Legends' only saving grace is the intriguing and appealing multiplayer. 007 Legends is more or less a 'breakdown' of six movies from the Bond franchise (In order of the game's narrative, not the film's): Goldfinger, On Her Majesty's Secret Service, License to Kill, Die Another Day, Moonraker and Skyfall.
Graphics: 6/10 Functional - does the job, never impresses.
Gameplay: 4/10 Dated and uninspiring. Stealth is half-baked, repetitive and dull structure. Controls are overly sluggish and the snap-aim feature is unreliable.
Features: 7/10 Fairly lengthy Single Player (if you feel like playing through it several times, which is fairly unlikely). Challenge mode is merely filler. Multiplayer is Legends stand-out feature. You will spend most of your time spent on this portion of the game.
Throughout 007 Legends you will be asking yourself: did Bond really fight the laser tank in Goldfinger? Why couldn't I drive a Kentworth truck and tilt it on it's side in License to Kill? Why feature the ludicrous Moonraker instead of The Spy Who Loved Me or Live and Let Die? Why (in Die Another Day) is Jinx a white woman with an inexplicable accent instead of Halle Berry? These are just a few of the many questions you'll be asking yourself throughout the game...if for some reason you purchase it. Best advised to steer well clear of this genuine insult to Bond's 50 year history.
Overall: 4 / 10… Expand
Dec 17, 2012007 Legends' greatest failing is that it cherry picks moments from Bond's illustrious history but fails to capture their hearts, all the while lacking self-generated value as its own game. Die-hard Bond fans will feel underwhelmed - if not peeved - by the treatment of these films, and the lowest-common-denominator approach to gameplay is downright bland.
