2.0 out of 5 stars Oh Oh 7!, 3 Nov. 2008
This review is from: Quantum of Solace (Nintendo DS) (Video Game)
Some thought has gone into this game, just not enough. It is different from other Bond games in that you can't just pick it up and enjoy yourself shooting the villains or blowing things up. No, you first have to endure a laborious tutorial to learn all of the pinickity controls which will make the game impossible to play whilst on a train or bus or anywhere else you can't give the damn thing at least 100% of your attention. You will run out of ammo far too quickly and not be able to find any other supplies, but instead keep finding poker chips or playing cards, which are no use when you keep getting pounced on by villains you can't see until you have managed to position the mini Bond in just the right place to make the buildings opaque...by which time you are dead and have to start all over again! Sienna (I only know it is sienna, because that is the name of the level) has been demolished and replaced with something akin to the roof tops of New York, all flat with lots of doors leading into identical stair wells. What happened to the crumbling medieval, orange tiled roof tops from the film?...very lazy. If you enjoy being frustrated beyond belief (I nearly threw it under a train the second day I had it), then this is the game for you. Personally I'd recommend Lego Batman or Indy, at least they make you laugh. I can only assume the developers ran out of time and didn't finish the job..there is no other excuse!
