Not nearly as bad as people say
on 3 January 2009
First of all - ignor the pictures currently on amazon- they are from the xbox version (I wish the DS had graphics like that!!)
This game has taken a lot of stick on many review sites, with one reviewer going so far as to label Quantum of Solace "the worst game of all time". Ridiculous.
For anyone who has ever played a 007 game before the format is simple and familiar enough, the main difference being almost total use of the stylus. You touch the screen, 007 walks to that point, etc. In fact, throughout the entire game you will only use one button and the stylus. You hold the DS "portrait" (like a book), the left hand screen used as a map and the right hand screen (the touch screen) used to see what you are doing.
The stylus use may take a little getting used too, but you should pick it up quickly enough. Once you have completed the game (if you get that far), there is nothing left to do apart from retry the old levels - but the game lets you stipulate extra conditions to make them harder (e.g. "you must complete the level in under 10mins" or "you must complete the level without firing a gun" etc).
All in all a pretty enjoyable game- not the best but certainlty not the worst. Considering the current price on amazon it's well worth it.
