Buy This Game -- You'll Be Sorry
Mar 21 2009, 4:47 PM EDT | Post edited: Mar 21 2009, 4:47 PM EDT
First off, the camera, I must start with the camera. It is the most horrific camera in the history of any video game that I have ever played in my life (and there have been a lot). Though I adored Tomb Raider: Anniversary, along with Tomb Radier: Underworld, I found that they had horrible cameras and I thought it was the absolute worst...until this game! You can't even see halfway down the street because it will not let you see -- it sees only what it wants you to see, and by the time it actually lets you see something...BAM, YOU'RE DEAD.

Second, practically each time you need to shoot guys (which brings me to my third point, in a moment), the gun has to reload. If that isn't bad enough, it takes so much time to reload and all of the enemies are attacking you, and most of the time, killing you before you can ever get the stupid gun reloaded.

Third, all you freaking do is shoot people! James Bond does more than shoot people (and more than go to bed with beautiful women), and in this game, that's all you ever do. Not to mention, you're only one person and you have literally 10-15 men shooting at you at one time -- it isn't fair and it's an utter disaster. Just a poor excuse for a Bond game, or even a video game alone.

Do not buy this game, it is the most horrific one I have ever seen in my entire life. You will want to take the game, place it onto the street, take your car and run over it at least ten times (like I just did, five minutes ago!).

Actually I found this game to be very enjoyable. You say that you need to reload your gun during a gun fight. Well, In your world there may be guns that have unlimited ammo, but everywhere else you will run out. Its all about conserving and using as little as possible and also being a good shot so you dont have to waste any. And if you run out completely, there's dead guys everywhere to get more. Its not unfair, it just sounds like you were bad at it.

I'm glad you found it enjoyable, but I did not. I understand in the real world you have to reload, but HELLO, it's a game and in other games that I have played, you do have unlimited ammo. And you would need it to kill all these people. I am not bad at the game, I'll have you know that I have beaten it three times already, so check your facts before you start talking. I just think it's ridiculous.

There's more to the movie. And I just think that the game is stupid. Don't you ever think games are stupid after you buy them?

Only joking here Anon, just having fun. For the record, I've beat it four times lol. It could have used a little bit more than simply gun fights than they did, but they included some fun stuff like taking down the choppers. One thing I wished they had done was to let me drive that amazing Aston. If only...

You're not very resourceful, are you? Sheesh, I mastered killing enemies with one shot my first playthrough, and aside from all that: There were a bunch of explosive traps laying in wait for the henchmen and it was easy to time my shots so that I could kill all of them with one explosion. Afterwards, I'd just dash for the ammo and find more cover.

I understand that you feel that it's just a game and you should have unlimited ammo, but where's the fun in that? You're playing a lone secret agent fighting off an entire organization. How realistic would it be to have James Bond loaded with an entire armory of guns and ammo? You don't need unlimited ammo or powerful guns to kill off the henchmen: You just need to be stealthy and pull off plenty of one-shot kills without compromising your situation.

Isn't that what it is to be a secret agent to begin with?

Unlimited ammo in games just makes it boring. It's far more exciting when you know that you have to be conservative with your ammo rather than just blasting off hundreds of rounds without a thought.
Nowadays games have become more realistic and it adds to the spectacle. I felt like Bond when I was playing QoS because it actually made me think more about how I was going to kill enemies and accomplish the mission, etc. rather than going Rambo styles all the time. Bond IS a secret agent after all... Great game all in all.
