Uproxx - I grew up a Bond fan, so theoretically this game is right up my alley, right? Right?
Man, I wish. That said, though, it doesn’t quite deserve the critical brickbats it’s been getting. It’s not bad. It’s just ultimately not very memorable, either.
On a technical level, the game is rarely bad. Dated in a few respects, but not bad. It’s a perfectly capable first-person shooter. There are absolutely no surprises in it whatsoever, mind you; even the most creative sequences are cribbed from other games. In the case of the zero-g fighting I’m pretty sure they just bought the code for Dead Space from Visceral, broke it a little, and reskinned the enemies.
