Had the chance to be great..and blew it!

There was always alot of talk about this game and an unfortunate amount of hype, reminding me a little of what happened to DRIV3R. From what it was describing itself to be it had a lot to live up to but then again, GTA:San Andreas did the same and turned out exactly what it promised. Do not think that this is the case here, it does for FPS what driv3r did for driving/action games, in other words its very bad.
There is little innovative gameplay and the AI are quite stupid. The feature of being able to trap enemies soon becomes repetitive. The graphics are nowhere near as good as they were meant to be and it has brought great shame upon the original game.
It feels a very rushed game, trying desperately to get it into the shops before christmas. 007:Everything or nothing is in my opinion the best bond game, although it is not a FPS, it is innovative and graphically brilliant. If you are thinking to yourself that its just one persons opinion, i might like it, then thats fine but i do advise strongley that you rent it first before you regret buying it. Killzone has alot more to offer on this front and does it without shame and with style.
Overall i think more thought and more time would have been critical in how this game turned out, it is a pity that they felt that christmas would save this game, obviously they have not had a look at the competition this year. I didnt have anytime to actually save bond at the beginning because he fell almost instantly but if i could have saved him i would have done just so they could make another decent 007 game, hopefully where Bond finishes off Goldeneye once and for all and puts us all out of our misery.
