Activision unleashed James Bond: Quantum of Solace on all major platforms last week, and here for your enjoyment is the First 10 Minutes of the game. I was hoping for something good, but it left me quite disappointed. Treyarch put in tons of features, but the majority of them works poorly.
Like the cover system, where barriers full of holes can cover you from every bullet - or the melee QTE moments, which takes you much longer time to execute than just shooting the enemy. The graphics are average and it plays like any regular shooter out there.
There's tons of scripted moments, and the enemies are just rolling around in the corridors like trained ninjas. Don't get me wrong, the game is a solid action shooter, but that's about it - and I can't help to wish that they used the James Bond license better.
The Witcher games - and books - aren't perfect, but nothing is. For what they are and what they have accomplished, I thank both the author and the developers from the bottom of my heart. (3 Hours ago)
And it ran for years under the radar of almost everyone before the anime, then it suddenly became an enourmous worldwide success. In a way, the same happened with The Witcher books and the games. (4 Hours ago)
@Megido: Just because certain works aren't very popular doesn't mean that they aren't great. Take for example Shingeki no Kyojin (Attack on Titan), the manga is even better than the anime. (4 Hours ago)
@GriftGFX: English. And also listened to them in English. Same with Game of Thrones' books. (4 Hours ago)
Although the games' writing isn't at the same level as the books', it's still far, far, far vastly better than 99% of the writing in games, movies, TV shows and books. CD Projekt RED did an epic job. (4 Hours ago)
@Sdarts: Cool.. what language did you read them in? (4 Hours ago)
@GriftGFX: From someone who read and even listened to all The Witcher books before playing the games. The books are on par with The Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, and Harry Potter books imho. (4 Hours ago)
