Our videos of 007 Legends

The previous James Bond game was by no means a must have, but at least it could be a little fun to play. As for 007 Legends, we must say there isn't much to prevent it from being forgotten by players in the days to come. Not only is it a pale Call of Duty skin, but it fails to deliver in every department: stealth is a pain to play, the investigation scenes are not really interesting either, and the shooting mechanics are not fun, with bulletproof enemies who can spot you even when you're crouching far from them, but who will take forever to take a shot at you when they get close. To top it all, the game looks dated visually speaking and framerate cannot even stay smooth at 60 fps. No really, there are tons of other things you can do other than spending your time and money on this one.

So it's 60fps on 360? I does look smooth on that stealth clip, reminds me of Deus Ex... even the generic corridor look.

Saw a video review and said exactly what i was expecting. CoD with a Bond skin. NEXT!

I'm struggling to see what this has to do with James Bond. It just looks like a brainless shooter full of explosions. Eurocom seem to have spectacularly failed to realise why people like James Bond. (hint - it's because he's a SPY)

Dude its Activision... they are using the most advanced form of the current Call of Duty MW3 tech so yeah... only with 007 franchise.

About the game


What's up?

    Tiz @GriftGFX: I think MS were in full on panic mode because they wanted to add value to their box, so they showed everything. (24 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Yeah they just need to actually implement some of that stuff. They're charting an interesting path. I feel like they showed this game off before they knew what it was. (25 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz For instance, in Destiny, the whole point of getting loot is to get better equipped to do raids for better equipment to do raids for better equipment and sometimes Iron Banner. (26 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @GriftGFX: It really depends how they approach it. If you can upgrade your ship, crew etc to navigate more dangerous parts of the sea then it will be a dangling carrot scenario. (27 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz Also, like the Division you have to cash in the loot before people steal it for themselves. The Division ran into the problem of just allowing anyone in the instances. (29 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And like.. what's the purpose of the loot itself. (29 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @GriftGFX: I feel like what the loot is will determine the way people play. Will there be the standard common to Legendary loot? Will some loot be harder to navigate to, if so, will it be worth it? (30 minutes ago)
