    Quite 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

    I think the game is great but there are a lot of things that weigh it down, like really annoying quick time fight sequences, but the game is hard and i like hard games, you have the option to play the single player like you would 007 golden eye which was a huge plus for me, all the gadgets are there the bond characters and villains from the movies it plays off of etc. Another issue i had was that some of the voice acting parts are a little off and any bond fan will catch these in a second. the online multiplayer is fun and adds to the game after you've completed its campaign, the story i thought was really good and draws from some of my favorite movies in the franchise. while the story isn't exactly like the movies i still think it does a good job of recreating parts and adding or changing others. The stealth system is really hard to get used to but gives you an added sense of actually completing something stealthily when you do. If your used to games stealth systems being easy your gonna get frustrated with this but it in no way hinders the game experience in my opinion.... but like i said those quick time fight scenes are really annoying. i wouldn't say 60 bucks is a good price for the game but id recommend picking it up at a 40 dollar price tag Expand

    The game 007 legends, surprisingly is great! The campaign mode is pretty good, but some at points it is too challenging. But most of it is very fun. There are cool weapons you can use like dart guns, lasers (moonraker), and RPGs. And of course there are a lot of cool guns. In some missions, you have to be stealthy, and it makes you feel like a secret agent! The multiplayer is great, there are tons of fun game-modes, but there is a lack of people online. Mostly, people only only play Team Conflict. The only way to find a game in another game-mode is to have a game arranged fora specific time. Some online games can be laggy, because the host doesn't have very fast internet speed. But it is very fun to play, and the maps are really great!

    Overall I think this game is awesome! Lately I have been playing it around 3-4 hours a day.

    007 Legends is a solid first-person shooter. It gives you a variety of weapons including poison darts and grenade launchers. The graphics are better than I expected on the Wii U. However, it has problems. The story is hard to follow because dialog between characters is often too quiet. When the story makes sense it is just a condensed version of James Bond movies from the past. I also was annoyed by the excessive number of enemies that are always trying to shoot you. This isn't a military game! The online multi-player is free from most of these problems, but there aren't always people to play with. Expand

  1. A sporadic, fragmented mess of Bond history spliced with brainless shooting that feels like a rushed Call Of Duty copycat. Get Black Ops 2. Don't get this.

    Needless to say, there isn't much reason to grab 007 Legends in the first place, but if you're a Bond diehard hellbent on owning it, you'll want to pass on the Wii U version, and hop the fence to the slightly greener pastures of Microsoft and Sony.

    007 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.
