IGN recently posted what I believe is the world premiere
for Activision and Treyarch’s new foray into the James Bond franchise, Quantum of Solace. After reading it, all I can say is that while few of us may approve of Treyarch heeding our calls of duty, it looks to me like they’ve done a hell of a job on QoS. I sure hope CoD5 offers up half as much promise.
The game is obviously based on the newest iteration of the venerable movie franchise which has seen countless videogame interpretations, most notably the N64’s (arguably) best FPS game, Goldeneye. What’s surprising to me is that the game is also based on the last Bond flick, Casino Royale, too. The game is presently set to split the game between both movies at a pretty even 50/50 split, which is nice for those of us that wanted to do some free running.
Ahhhhh, so pretty.
So does Activision’s new take on Bond have you shaken or stirred? (Sorry.) Personally, this game was nowhere close to my radar until I read through the article. I’m glad to see someone is taking their time with the franchise and not just trying to make another Goldeneye like EA tried to do for so many years when they had the license. It looks to me like Quantum of Solace may end up being the game we all wanted The Bourne Conspiracy to be.
