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.
But they haven't stayed consistent. In BF1 the best vanilla SMG is *by far* the hardest to unlock. (4 Hours ago)
Example: the best AR in BF3/4 is the AEK and it's one of the first guns you unlock in both games. (4 Hours ago)
@Tinks: Right.. a lot of their unlocks avoid this issue by putting all the best stuff at the front of the unlock tree. (4 Hours ago)
the unlock rate is bad when it means gaining perk advantages against others with less playtime. (5 Hours ago)
and then letting you use those weapons against users who don't have them has always seemed wrong to me (11 Hours ago)
@MikeManiac61: I don't mind the unlock rate too much (although there are a few exceptions in BF1) since they frontload the best weapons a lot of the time. But locking good weapons behind DLC (11 Hours ago)
@GriftGFX: Having the same sentiments. It's reminding me of Battlefront 2 and their system where you have to grind so much for an unlock. (11 Hours ago)
