This is so transparently a Bond game in the COD engine. My god.

The fonts and way point markers even look the same.

The textures are real muddy.

Awesome Quick Look. Game looks decent enough, but it's not really something i would pay a lot of money for. Night gold just isn't the same as day gold.

The one thing that bothered me most about this was that fire. Holy shit, that is some of the worst looking fire I have ever seen. It flickers so... wrong, and it looks like it was drawn next to a Maiden or Twisted Sisters logo on a shitty floppy plastic folder.

"I have not watched most of the Bond movies."

Erm...couldn't someone who has have done the QL, then? Or maybe more prep could've been done? A huge part of the game clearly hinges on that, so...

I mean, I get it. But still.

As they said in the first mission, any bond fan would look at that opening scene and instantly be turned off by this game. It is call of duty reskinned for 007.

These Quick Looks are really only quick in comparison to an Endurance Run by this point. But I'm not complaining. =)

oh god, I thought I couldn't stand 40 minutes but then vinney's "lets see the gold" pushed me on. What a sad looking game

Night time gold is the best gold.

this game looks nasty

GOLD!!!

this is a long look....

Watching this for a second time is weird, He picks up the phone, that she was clearly using before she was flashed golded, and keeps the phone. Then he is teliported to some airport in some place, and planes blow up for no reason.

No shooter will ever recapture the satisfaction of shooting enemies in the hand in Golden Eye.

Anyone else unlocked all cheats in that game? The one where you start above the bathroom was a b****, took me a lot of tries, a lot.

I'm not even much of a Bond fan, but that was pretty bad. Thoroughly entertaining QL though!

Fuck yeah Everything or Nothing was amazing.

Who throws a shoe? Honestly!

Alpha Protocol in all of its brokenness was a better spy game than any bond game has ever been.

Posted by ajamafalous

I wanted to see the gold :(

Posted by Cazamalos

great they are now selling Bond mods for Call of Duty

Posted by kerse

Man this is a really long quick look, entertaining though lol.

Wow, Judi Dench agreed to do voice work for this crap?

Edited by gbrading

Vinny/Jeff Quick Looks always make me laugh.

Best Bond film is Goldfinger. Not best villain, but best everything else. Pussy Galore. How on Earth did they get away with that?

And we never did really see the Gold.

Bomb Slickers 2: The Search for Vinny's Gold

Posted by AMyggen

Ugh, this just looks like a three years old generic FPS. It doesn't look terrible, but it looks bland and boring as hell, which is the worst kind of game. No ambition at all, just a lazy attempt at combining some famous Bond scenes in a boring FPS and call it a day. Fuck you, Activision.

Posted by Chibi_Kaji

I'm with Vinny on this one. The game looks alright, but nothing about it stands out. 

Posted by Humanity

Can't believe they really just sat there and kept going. Vinny and Jeff Quicklooks are pretty much the best Quick Looks ever!

BRAHP! BRAPG! BRPGH!

This was a really fun one to watch.

Posted by falling_fast

this doesn't look very interesting!

Posted by beard_of_zeus

I thought the comments were exaggerating about this being COD-esque, but man. This game has more gun attachments than gadgets. What is this rushed mess of a game? I mean, they don't even have subtitles, which seems crazy.

I'm with Jeff in that there's so much more to Bond than shooting dudes. The better Bond games seem to understand this with their car chases and gadgets and being totally suave. The best part of something like Alpha Protocol was that it was a spy-ass spy game, and 007 game could learn a lot from that.

"But 008 will respond if I don't report back!"

"Fine we won't kill you, just knock you out."

. . . So he still didn't respond, right? And how are those dudes inside of Fort Knox if all of the doors are still closed and locked, and the nerve gas was oxygen?

Guys, I'm not sure this game makes sense.

I spit out my lunch at least twice while watching this QL...bravo bravo!

Posted by TheMathlete

"I won't be reckless..." right when he kills a guy and sets off the alarms. God damn it Bond!

Posted by Ramone

I love how many times they try to stop the QL but they just can't stop playing.

The Quantum of Solace movie IS SO BAD! OH MY GOD!

Don't like jets? Don't eat.

@TekZero: Less "makes PERFECT SENSE", more "wouldn't it be cool if..." fanboy nonsense. Bond runs off with a woman at the end of every single film.

Also the Roger Moore films were fine, until he got old and probably should have stopped but nope let's keep going and have him make out with Grace Jones God why?

Posted by SuperJoe

Needs less shooting and more womanizing.

Posted by TheMathlete

The actor that Vinny was thinking of at 2 and a half minutes in is Robert Davi. He played a drug lord in "License to Kill." He's probably better known for playing Jake in "The Goonies," and one of the FBI agents in the first Die Hard.

The best Bond movie is Moonraker!

*Drops the mike*

In the Man With The Golden Gun, Christopher Lee escapes Bond, after watching a sumo wrestling match together, in a flying 1974 AMC Matador and had the midget from Fantasy Island as his henchman. Beat that. :p

As for the game itself. . . way to rape the series. I can point to any part of any level in this and tell you why its wrong. Btw @57:33 is that white dude supposed to be Felix Lighter? Could they not get Jeffery Wright's likeness or something?

In Moonraker they shoot laserguns in space and Jaws gets a girlfriend :D

At least we all agree that Old James Bond is better than New James Bond

Mechanically, the new goldeneye game and this game is "allright" if you take into consideration that it has optional stealth and passages. At least it gives slightly varied options during the story missions compared to that other Activision franchise, but I wish it got the same level of polish.

These games that completely ignore the atmosphere and story pacing of the source material in favor of copy and pasted gameplay from other titles are becoming increasingly less forgivable.

Edit: Their version of Fort Knox is laughably large and empty.

Love you guys.

Lack of subtitles in a big-budget 2012 game? "No, this game isn't rushed, we swear!"

Edited by DeviTiffany

I like how the guard asked the guy Jeff shot with a sniper rifle if he was alright. I know there's no realistic damage modeling because it's a T rated game, but come on you'd be able to see that your partner is missing half his face.

@YukoAsho: This game is bland, and bad.

@DarkbeatDK: Roger Moore is the best at nothing. Most girly bond ever. Timothy Dalton is the king, Living Daylights.

Timothy Dalton fires the biggest guns and straight up shoots more people as Bond. He's the perfect fit for these games.
