I have to thank you Frenzy. I'm really starting to dislike this game, but thanks to you I haven't spent money on it. But it's like a car crash and can't help be keep watching this with morbid curiosity.

I'm glad I'm not alone. This game has made me itch ever since the test post, but I kept my mouth shut because I didn't want to shit on the thread. Suffice it to say that this sluggish wonky cover-based snorefest would infuriate me, and I'm glad to not be the one playing it.

Man, it was definitely not my intention to make people dislike the game. The treatment of Casino Royale and the whole flashback bit is silly to be sure but it's quite good gameplay-wise, especially for a movie tie-in game. Although I guess which movie it's a tie-in for is sort of the issue.

I remember the first time I played this game, I actually rented it when it first came out. My reasoning was that I saw a review of it that basically said, 'It's no Goldeneye, but then no game ever will be. For a Bond game it's good, and if it wasn't a Bond game people would be paying it more attention.'

Edit: The game has a better theme than the film as well. Alicia Keys & Jack White, FOR SHAME.

Especially since CR had 'You Know My Name', which was a good Cornell song.

I actually liked the Quantum intro music. It definitely had a different style, but it was still good. And so was the Casino Royale one, I have it on my iPod. It would be a toss up as to whether the Quantum movie or game intro music is better. I'm not sure which I would say I liked better.
