James Bond: 007 Legends
It's a Bond game.
Campaign is very fun, in single player, everything looks really nice, and fluid. The story archs are fun, although admittedly I haven't beaten it yet, just never got around to it. In addition there are challenges too. It reminds me of Timesplitters in a way.
Anyway, the game gets a little weird online. Everyone only ever played team death match, so your forced to forgo Golden Gun and those modes, because no one is ever on them. And when i checked this summer, less than a year after release, it took me half an hour for the minimum four people to join a game The community isn't there, at least on Wii U.
Graphically, the character models are nice, but and the surrounding are decent in single player, but in multiplayer they are pretty awful. Very generic, and there are very few maps in all. Plus, the game lags a little bit sometimes even in local multiplayer. The controls are nice, I mostly play with the pro controller when I'm not playing campaign, but they are a little late at some points. perhaps I'm just not used to FPS controls. My last FPS was literally Timesplitters 2 for the GameCube, as I don't play anything over rated T, since I am in fact a teenager. (Yes I know that means I'm lame for obeying that rule that isn't really a rule).
Anyway, I enjoyed the game a lot, but I do have some gripes with it, so 7.5/10, leaning enough towards 8 to give it that on here.
Ok now I know IGN gave this a bad rap and just about every other game reviewer too. But I have to disagree. 007 Legends is an amazing game I love it,graphics are amazing character models are awesome the audio is great and I love the way it plays and in my opinion the vehicle stages don't stink and neither do the punch out boss fights. I think IGN is wrong on this one. And I know some people call this a Call of Duty clone but since I don't play Call of Duty I can't really make the judgment on whether this is a clone or not. But I do know that if I did play Call of Duty this would probably kick it's butt.
Ok game, but I expected much more.
I got this hoping it would be a good 'sequel' to Goldeneye Wii. Boy was I wrong. Goldeneye did a good job of optimizing the controls etc. to be used on Wii, but whether you play this one on Xbox, PS3 or Wii U makes no difference. They couldn't even make the freaking cellphone optimized for the gamepad. Any idiot could have thought of that, but they didn't do it. And my biggest complaint, the graphics. They looks exactly like the Goldeneye Wii graphics, and the AA is so low you can barely tell its in HD. As for the multiplayer, it would be the best thing about this game, only no one plays anything but team conflict (basically team deathmatch). There are tons of other creative modes made for this game, but for some reason, no one plays them. In conclusion, this game had big potential, but once again, Activision's lack of effort in their sequels ruined a good series.
The Gameplay is smooth the multiplayer is nice the only problem is NO PRONE!!! :O other than that its awesome!!!
To start out I play this for the WiiU and think it's amazing. One of the things that I love about the game is you can play over the nintendo network with up to 12 people. I love the campaign, challanges are great, and the split screen is awesome. Now to the disadvantages. One thing I absolutely hate is that you can't use a pro controller for the campaign or the challenges. If your interested in leaderboards well the have that.
ONLINE IS WERE IM @
This was one of 6 of my first wii u games i like the campaign but it needs more of a story like uncharted games have I like to play it online i feel that the guns are well balanced the graphics are in hd and people who play this online are die hard bond fans i also luv the sky fall levels i hate how they messed up the dialog but i play games for multilayer
Good for bond fan
Cell phones have existed since the 1960's , so The addition of the cell phone Goldeneye was spot on.
This deserves GOTY 2013!
This game is PERFECT for any James Bond fan. Controls are a little weird but you get used to it. The game doesn't try to be like CoD, it tries to be different. Amazing weapons and gameplay. 10/10.
graphics are the best gamplay you will love. the multiplayer will amaze you. the missions are awesome. You will love this game!!!!!!!!!!!!
Fun Bond Game
This game is very fun, I recommend it for any fan of the Bond franchise. Others who simply want a shooter will probably call it a poor man's CoD, but I have both games and enjoy this more than CoD: BO2 personally. The character models are some of the best I've seen, the environments are great, capture the films very well. The campaign is fairly fun and challenging, its not 5 villains teaming up against you as some sites claim, its Bond reaching near-death and remembering some of his older outings, thus why its a bit disjointed, but still fun to relive moments from the films. My only complaint is that they updated the gadgets to the new movies for all the films, so in Goldfinger you're using your cellphone, even though no such thing existed at the time of the film. The multiplayer is where the real appeal comes from, it has several modes including the good old Golden Gun mode (was my favorite in Goldeneye). Now, as far as comparisons, this is not as good as Goldeneye on the N64 nor the 007 Goldeneye remake on the Wii. It also lacks any support for the wiimotes sadly, can only use the gamepad and pro controller, but its still a load of fun to play, especially for fans of the franchise.
