Currently I am playing Treyarchs Quantum of Solace for the 360. Yes, a Bond game. To my surprise, I actually am enjoying the fuck out of this game! It's made with the COD4 engine so you know it plays smooth and looks pretty nice at the same time. Anyhow, I'm only a couple of hours into it, but I'll post up a full review once I get through the game a time or two. Stay tuned...
Finished the single player, and I had a blast. Currently working on a second playthrough, but also have already went back through each level that I missed a mission specific achievement on! And, this is new for SSinisterSS, I took on the multiplayer and slowly but shirley (don't call me Shirley) I am getting better. I have like a .60 K/D ratio lol, but I'm less in the RED now than I used to be!
So basically, to sum it up without pretending I am some real video game review expert, I'm giving you the honest nerd perspective on shit. It's a tight shooter with a cover system that throws you into third person. I liked it, and if you reading this thought it was gay than you can kiss my ass I dont care. Just kidding, I value all opinions, no matter how stupid.
Visually its not the prettiest game, and honestly anyone familiar with the COD4 engine and its capabilities, accompanied by Treyarchs knowledge of said tools, should come to expect more in the looks department. If the game was a chick, I wouldn't kicker her out of bed, but there won't be any sleep overs that's for sure.
I liked the set pieces and the locales. I liked the closeness that the game maintained to the Casino Royale and Quantum Of Solace films although with sequencing twists and changes to the storylines in subtle ways clearly to make the game more playable. This game actually got me to watch both of these Bond flicks starring Daniel Craig. I enjoyed them, although Casino Royale put me to sleep the first time I watched it.
Nevertheless, I think if my ass were on the line and IGN needed a score to spit out on their website for Quantum Of Solace I'd probably email them this:
(I apologize if there are spelling errors and grammatical mishaps but I'm just wanting to type fast and not worry about that shit right now o.k.?)
