The idea of this game would be a dream for any passionate gamer and James Bond fan. Six classic films, including the lastest film 'Skyfall', playable for the first time in a linear storyline to celebrate Bond's 50th Anniversary. Sounds magic written down.
However, this is only another generic shooter, rushed into production for the tie-in using the same ethics, gameplay and engine as 2010's 'GoldenEye 007 Reloaded'.
There are fun moments, tackling iconic villains in memorable locations against a backdrop of exciting 007 music is enjoyable and doesn't test your brain too much in mowing down hordes of bad guys as you hack, scan and photograph your way across the missions using the ever faithful smartphone belonging to Bond.
But it's a little OTT to be taken seriously as a decent tribute to James Bond and the fans who have waited so long to play the missions of Connery, Lazenby, Moore, Dalton and Brosnan. Quite dissapointing with the number of elements that seem rushed and lacking any great attention that could make this game stand out above other generic Bond shooters.
It will pass a few hours for mindless fun but will leave you wanting more, and I guarantee this is nothing new and you will long for what could have been with either longer development or a new game licence given to another developer to avoid this James Bond meets Call Of Duty offering.
