  • Summary: Introducing a more lethal and cunningly efficient Bond, the game blends intense first-person action with a unique third-person cover combat system that allows players to truly feel what it is like to be the ultimate secret agent as they use their stealth, precision shooting and lethal combatIntroducing a more lethal and cunningly efficient Bond, the game blends intense first-person action with a unique third-person cover combat system that allows players to truly feel what it is like to be the ultimate secret agent as they use their stealth, precision shooting and lethal combat skills to progress through missions. Blending the action of the "Quantum of Solace" feature film with the "Casino Royale" movie, the title propels players into the cinematic experience of international espionage. Based on the Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare game engine that has been specifically engineered to immerse players in the Bond universe, the Quantum of Solace game delivers high-definition graphics, reactive AI and visually stunning locations inspired by locales portrayed in the films. Quantum of Solace marks the first time players can become the dangerous and cunning Bond as portrayed by Daniel Craig. From silent take downs and sneaking through confined spaces, to one-on-one shoot outs and large scale battles, players experience a variety of gameplay that challenges them to think through situations and choose how they progress, whether it's through covert means or confronting enemies in full force. Advanced combat and Realistic AI: Players engage in both first-person and third-person gameplay that allows gamers to be Bond in unscripted battles against the world's most evil villains and mercenaries. Filled with armed combat, massive explosions and vertigo-inducing chases, gamers are immersed in an authentic Bond universe and drawn into epic movie moments with theatrical camera angles, split screen effects, picture-in-picture sequences, and amazing environments inspired by real world locations such as Montenegro, Venice, Bolivia and Austria. Bringing James Bond to next-gen consoles for the first time, gamers now have the ability to battle online in a variety of modes. [Activision] Expand

  1. This is "GoldenEye" for a new generation. And praise doesn't come much higher than that.
  2. A decent enough game, if not a little predictable. Certainly worth considering if you are a fan of all things Bond.
  3. Quantum of Solace is a passable Bond game and an above-average action game, but it's seriously held back by a lack of style and originality.
  4. A James Bond movie tie-in that unfortunately lacks any of the gadgets and fun aspects we expect from 007. Treyarch have created an enjoyable shooter that fails to live up to expectations, and is far too short to be considered anything special.
  5. The gameplay shows potential, but the rest of the game isn’t strong enough to lift it up into an experience that any gamer needs to see.
  6. There is a simple pleasure to be had if you leave all of your expectations at the door and, if you can overlook its painful neglect, the multiplayer may keep you occupied until the more prominent shooters arrive later in the month. But unfortunately, Quantum of Solace turned out to be a bit more George Lazenby than Sean Connery.
  7. Quantum of Solace never manages to be a Bond game: at the tiniest of nudges, it panics and starts unleashing gunfire. It's clumsy, it's messy, it's not much fun and most of the time, it's not even the right film.

Granted, I never played Goldeneye, and this game is all shooting with only a tiny bit of required stealth and turret action, but the game mechanics are superb, and the fun factor is very high.

    I've played it through four times already, and I expect I will play it through many more times to come. The multiplayer is still good after two years (though of course there aren't too many people playing these days), and overall it's just loads of fun.

There were also some really cool things from the movies, like when you have to get out of the casino when you are poisoned. I'm tired of people complaining that this game focused too much on cover. . . the game is realistic! You have to take cover in real life and in real life a shot or two to the head will kill you.

    007: Quantum Of Solace is a surprisingly good movie tie-in.

    The gameplay does feel very similar to COD 4,though it's by Treyarch,so what were you expecting?.It has a cover system,which switches you to third person from first,and you are extremely accurate from cover,which makes the game a bit too easy.The stealth sections are awful,about the gameplay's only flaw.

    The graphics are decent,but nothing special.The framerate is solid,and never even hitches.The enviroments are well-varied too.

    Sound design and soundtrack are mediocre.

    Overall,Quantum Of Solace is a solid movie tie-in FPS that is worth at least trying even if you,like me,are not a fan of Bond.
