Gaming Nexus writes: "Despite my undying love for James Bond, even I have to admit that Activision's first 007 game, Quantum of Solace, has a lot going against it. For one thing there hasn't been a must-own Bond game since Rare's 1997 hit, GoldenEye 007. There's also the issue of this being a movie-based game, a classification that generally means certain doom. But despite all of the forces working against it, Quantum of Solace proves to be an enjoyable first- and third-person action game that manages to retain the pure joy of James Bond, all while offering us an action-packed story and beautiful locations.
Contrary to its name, Quantum of Solace is much more than just an interactive retelling of the upcoming blockbuster James Bond movie. Sure it features elements from the movie it's named after, but it also tells the (mostly) complete story of Casino Royale. The game starts up soon after the events of Casino Royale, with Bond seeking revenge for the death of his lover, Vesper Lynd. He does this by abducting "Mr. White," who reveals the organization which blackmailed Vesper to steal Bond's casino winnings is far more complex and dangerous than anyone had imagined. As you might imagine this sends Bond on an international mission to take down those who wronged him and (most importantly) find a new love interesting."
