GiN Review: Quantum of Solace

Chris Richards writes:

"At the end of the Casino Royale movie, perennial spy James Bond (played by Daniel Craig) shoots Mr. White and captures him. The game Quantum of Solace (QoS) starts right at that moment, and I wish the movie did as well.

The game opens with a shootout through the garden and into the house where Bond attempts to get some data off a computer. A self destruct goes off and he leaves the house to recapture Mr. White, who crawled away and was subsequently taken to a helicopter. Bond takes down the helicopter and once again captures Mr. White and throws him into the trunk of his car. The game then goes into a cut scene of a car chase (which is where the movie opens). Though I might be a bit biased here, I played the game on my Xbox 360 before I saw the movie, but I thought the game had a better opening that helped explain the overall plot a bit better. (Don't worry, there are no other spoilers ahead.)

I am always a little bit wary of games based on movies. My typical feeling is that they are generally a good game concept that was rushed though production to be released when the movie is released. And we all know this happens a lot.

I did get that feeling from Quantum of Solace, but I didn't think it had as large an impact as I have seen in other movie-to-game disasters." (James Bond : Quantum of Solace, Nintendo DS, PS2, PS3, Wii, Xbox 360) 4/5
