Quantum of Solace Quantum of Solace (2008)

Bond follows a lead into the organisation who were manipulating Vesper Lynd. Though when I say ‘follow a lead,’ I mean Bond kills hundreds of gun-toting henchmen. Which has got to help a bit, at least.

7/10

There is a complete absence of iconic action in the movie Quantum of Solace, a complete lack of Bondian swagger and attitude in both that movie and Casino Royale and a largely bland flow to the game’s levels but with these elements accepted, this remains a highly playable shooter with some agreeable cover-based action. It doesn’t fall into the typical Bond-game trap of trying to do too many things, nor does it supply ridiculously over-powered bosses (some are quick-time events, some take one or two judicious shots) or non-standard control layouts. Multiplayer offers a good selection of game modes which work well and are fun. So while, like parent movie Quantum of Solace, this simply doesn’t feel like Bond, it is a smooth, solid, easy-to-play shooter in its own right.

This Quantum of Solace game contains mild swear words and extended gun violence, strong melee violence.

Classified 16+ by PEGI. The game is only suitable for persons who have reached the age of 16 or over..

  1. Hey dude, nice review. I help run a gaming blog myself and came to similar conclusions. Luckily, I piked the game up for only $15 so to me it was easy to recommend at that price.

    Plus, when you compare Quantum to most licensed movie games, it’s almost golden.
