The only real problem has to do with timing. GoldenEye 007 came up on Nintendo 64, and was heralded as the best and initial first person shooter game in a long time. Who doesn't remember gathering around their friends house for a game online? Halo eventually came to perfect it on the next-generation Xbox console, but GoldenEye laid initially marked a stepping stone for 3D shooters. In Quantum of Solace, Treyarch manages to get the sense of GoldenEye in spirit and add other touches, but essentially they fall short to a level. Time has passed, and apparently it's reflected across some gameplay essentials and factors that take away from staples of other series genre."
