Quantum of Solace

Post by The Sweeney »

Anyone bought the game yet, or does the mere thought of being Craig put you off completely... :P

I got it for Christmas on PS3, and I'm really impressed with the game so far. Anyone else played it yet?

Don't have a PS3 or any other console. My gaming is limited to free Flash games on various websites.

How is the gameplay compared to Everything or Nothing and Nightfire? Have you played those Bond games?

No, this is the first Bond game I've bought. I tried to get FRWL but apparently it won't work on my PS3.... :x
Great graphics and superb gameplay. I've been playing it all afternoon (and driving the misses crazy!!)

Games certainly have come a long way since my days of hammering away at the old ZX Spectrum. I'll never be able to look at Jet Set Willy in the same light again......

Played it once, it's pretty fun. Not as good as GE (then again what is?), but it's one of the better games.

Of course it's not given its own forum here. :P

I own the Wii and DS versions of this game, and I find them both pretty disappointing. Although I miraculously managed to have enough patience to play through the dull and somewhat glitchy Call Of Duty Wii version of QOS, I couldn't bring myself to finishing the DS version. Got so far into the game, but then I started playing Zelda or something, and I never bothered to go back and finish it. Craig Of Duty: Modern GoldenEyeFare (GoldenEye Wii) is an improvement from QOS, but that really isn't saying much, which is why I saved my money and avoided Craig Of Duty Legends like the plague.

GoldenEye Wii is a total travesty and NEEDS to be microwaved along with Furbies.

When you compare GoldenEye Wii (or GoldenEye Reloaded) just to Activision's Bond games, it's probably their best effort. But when you compare it to some of the other great Bond games, especially the N64 GoldenEye, it's abysmal, and like you say, should be microwaved. The Bond games that were made during the Brosnan era were much better for the most part. But I've had enough of Activision's nonsense, and I'm probably not going to be buying another Bond game for a long time.

Activision has had enough too I'd bet goldeneye reloaded is there best performing game and it sold fewer copies than the last game to use the name goldeneye which everyone hated, rouge agent.

007 legends isn't worth mentioning it did so bad, guess bond mania pass that title by :roll:

Trouble is that both the Wii and DS versions of QOS were given to me as Christmas gifts, so I would feel rather bad if I microwaved them. Now if I would have bought the games myself on the other hand....:twisted:
