Even ignoring the 60s angle, the fact that the game is obviously trying to distance itself from the risible GoldenEye: Rogue Agent is another obvious boon. Its a third person adventure much more in keeping with Everything or Nothing, with a similar mix of on foot and vehicle combat, with particular emphasis seeming to be given to the jetpack from Thunderball.
Although Bond looks and sounds (thanks to newly recorded dialogue by the man himself) like Sean Connery the game also has a role-playing element where you can customise your character according to your preferred style of play. Theres also an online and split screen multiplayer mode for you to compare these settings with friends.
Alas there doesnt yet seem to be any sign of a mini-game allowing you to ferret out bad guys according to their incorrect choice of wine at the dinner table, but in all other respects this is shaping up to be the ultimate retro Bond game. --Harrison Dent
This preview is based on an incomplete version of the game; features or problems mentioned above may not appear in the finished game.
Players will create and manipulate Bond in a living world based on the timeless fiction of the classic James Bond movie. Invest in your character and customize the ultimate Bond for a whole new level of gameplay options.
Sean Connery, the original Bond, reprises his role as the dapper Mi6 agent in this innovative, retro-styled and highly anticipated console title from the infamous Bond franchise.
Don't expect to complete a mission easily. You think you've completed a mission, only to suddenly find yourself back driving or heading down river in a speedboat.
My only criticism would be the aiming system when on the boat. The enemies are impossible to kill unless you zoom in but when you do it throws the targeting off so you have to forget accurate aim and just hope you hit something.
The end sequence of the game is rather short and disappointing too considering the amount of work you've put in to get there!
This game isn't just for Bond fans. Anybody who likes shoot 'em ups and action will enjoy this!
