|Players take the role of the darker, grittier James Bond in Quantum of Solace, the first 007 game from publisher Activision. Following Daniel Craig's portrayal of a violent, driven Bond, the young MI6 agent's methods may be messy, but he is ultimately effective. Gameplay features plenty of gun-fighting and hand-to-hand combat, as well as surveillance and stealth sequences. The game is built on Infinity Ward's Call of Duty 4 game engine, and features similar graphical quality, third-person cut-aways, and lively enemy AI.|
The setting and story of Quantum of Solace are based directly on the movies, both Casino Royale and its sequel, which shares the game's title and autumn 2008 release. Developers re-created locations from both films, based on thousands of photos. All main characters have the likenesses and voices of their cinematic counterparts, including Craig as Bond and Olga Kurylenko as Camille, plus Mathieu Amalric, Judi Dench, Eva Green, and Mads Mikkelsen in their respective roles.
The Xbox 360 edition of the game displays high-definition graphics, with cut-scenes that blur the line between conventional cinema and computer animation. Xbox Live subscribers can join online multiplayer games, in a variety of modes, for as many as 12 players.
The "Collector's Edition" comes packaged in a metallic "007" case and features a full version of the game as well as a bonus disc full of "behind-the-scenes" videos with actors from both the game and the motion picture.

The game itself plays just as you would expect it, as it is a high-octane action-adventure title that attempts to put you right in the role of James Bond himself. The game, with how it is set up, really rewards those who act like Bond, taking their time and using their brains to think things out.
This is due to the fact that the game has a very intuitive cover system, which allows you to take cover, and plan out your attacks on enemies. Needless to say, if you try to run into a room without a plan or any cover you are in big trouble.
Beyond that, you also get some variety in the game play as you move along to with a few stealth missions, as well as other different things for you to try out.
The whole game plays out very smoothly, as the controls make this one fun game with plenty of action to be had for any Bond fan.
In regards to the visuals, Quantum of Solace is somewhere in the middle as there is some good, as well as some bad. Starting with the good, the environments, as well as the model of Daniel Craig are fantastic. The Daniel Craig model is highly-detailed and looks true-to-life.
As for the bad, there are clearly some issues here with the animations due to the fact that you end up seeing the same canned sequences by enemies over and over again. On top of that, the visual effects with explosions and such are not up to par.
When it comes down to the actual replay value, the single-player campaign is not all that long and can be plowed through in a weekend or so. Treyarch has included an online component though to allow you to jump online with up to 12 players in a match. You get some pretty standard modes such as co-op, death match, etc. The online mode adds to the experience, but is nothing groundbreaking.
Quantum of Solace is a respectable game , and one which Bond fans will not be disappointed in. There is a good deal of enjoyment to be had with the solid controls and use of the Bond license. When it boils down to it though, the entire package is pretty average.
Graphics: 8.0 A good looking game with nicely detailed environments and character models.
Sound: 8.0 The score sounds great, as are the voice-overs.
Gameplay: 7.0 The game is enjoyable and is fun to control, but not much here in terms of innovation. Things can get very repetitive.
Replay Value: 7.0 The single player campaign is not all that long, and don’t expect much from the multi-player.
A SIMILIAR GAME AND OTHER OPTION WOULD BE HITMEN-BLOOD MONEY (2/3 THE $ OF 007)
I purchased Quantum of Solace and was immediately impressed with the quality in which the game was in, and with the price i gave for it. Adding the free shipping also added to the wow factor of this product, not to mention the fact that i am a die-hard James Bond Fan.
