TeamXbox: Quantum of Solace First Look Preview

TeamXbox writes: "No matter what you think of most the recent incarnation of the cinema's most prolific super spy, no James Bond movie has to be held up with the same scrutiny against any other movie in the franchise in the same way any James Bond video game gets held up to 1997's GoldenEye for the N64. It's not so much that it was a James Bond game; that fact is practically superfluous. No, GoldenEye is one of those "Most Important Video Games of All Time" kind of affairs, and the scads of other James Bond themed video games to come down the pipe in the ensuing eleven years have never come close to holding a candle to it. Or at least, as accepted opinions go.

No doubt, the newest Bond game in the well-traveled history of the franchise will be held up to the same standards, perhaps unfairly. Ok, unfairly. James Bond: Quantum of Solace is the first Bond game on the current generation of consoles. Wait, what? Really? I thought a Bond game came out once a year. Oh, it just feels like that? My bad. It's also the first game to feature the "new Bond", Daniel Craig. If you haven't seen it, I won't spoil anything for you, but Casino Royale is a pretty bad-ass movie. He's a very different kind of Bond than Remington Steele was. And that's good."
