a !GREAT! game
This game is a very good beginner shooter. It features a very interesting storyline, with many new game modes, and very good graphics. I would strongly recommend this game to any between the ages of nine and thirteen. As much as i have enjoyed playing I still noticed a few flaws. One of the flaws i noticed was in the new "Bond Focus Mode". It focuses on two points instead of just one. Don't get me wrong, I love the fact that they tried to be creative with this mode but I think it would be a whole lot easier to understand if it only had one main focus. Another thing that I really enjoyed about this game was the new "Lock-on". For those of you who dont know what I mean by the new "Lock-on", the new "lock-on" features different colors to tell the health of the enemy. Over all I conclude that this would be a very great game for beginners!
action game killer
this is obvisly the best james bond game to grase consles.everthing the games story line is awesome and always keeping you ready for action.this game is up and down from my opinion. the game is not a big challeng.the reason i say that it has auto targeting and no other wat to aim.the only other bad thing is some missions are made up and not in the movie.the also mess up jame's lines.on the other hand somthing thats cool is the bond focus mode(you can aim at the face or shoot off there armor.in stroy mode you can put your back to the wall for cover.crouching helps only if you have something solid to crouch behind. stroymode has 18 levels(counting bonus levels).multiplayer has one bad thing . you cant be bond. you can only be bond bad guys.there you had it my review.
Being me, Ive played every Bond game released. Im a very big fan of Sean Connery's Bond aswell. So, with the combination of one of my favorite James Bond movies, favorite Bond, on my favorite console. I just had to grab this. Like every bond game, the campaign isnt that hard or long. It doesnt follow the story of the movie to the T but its great for fans of the series or video games. But it will only be appreciated by true James Bond fans.
For Bond Fans Only!!!!!!
After playing Everything or Nothing, you would think that EA would follow it up by putting out a Sean Connery Bond original adventure as they did before. Unfortunately, they didn't. This review is going to be very straightforward. Firstly, is FRWL bad? No. It is worth at least a playthrough once. To see the modeling of Sean Connery is done amazingly well. The only complaint is that as Connery has aged, his accent is really thick. Matter of fact, there was at least one time early in the game for me that I could not understand what he said. Thanks to captioning. And, once you get used to his voice, you understand him much better. The combat is similar to EON with some differences that they made that totally messed up the action. Instead of the same right/left buttons that allowed you to fight as well as grapple and throw opponents, now, everything has been mapped to the L1 button and the action is contextual. That means that depending on how you use the stick, you might just throw someone, punch them to death, or do another kind of grapple depending on whether you are near something flat, like a wall. Other than that, the game stays with the same shooting mechanics with the lock on button which is good because there are so many enemies that you have to shoot. THe game is also a breeze to get through on easy, but if you prefer a challenge, the Hard mode might be more your thing. Other than that, the sound is great as they really re-capture the 1960's movie of the same name. The driving sequences are much more stale like the original movie was as well. The cars handle much more floaty than the last game. But you get a really cool jetpack on certain levels that totally make up for anything that youn went through with the car. Believe me, I would say that if you have the time, the game is worth a rental. If you do purchase the game, I am sure that you can beat it in 4 days as it was only about 6 to 8 hours to beat it for me. But again, if you are a Bond fan, and I am, it is definitely worth a playthrough.
