Now, I played the first James Bond title on PlayStation 2 (I remember receiving this in 2001, I think as one of a few titles to play on my new PlayStation 2). I didn't really like it to be quite honest. Then again, I didn't like a lot of shooters back on PlayStation 2. I used to play a lot of franchises on PlayStation 2 but did have the odd games every now and then.
For different platforms, there are different developers for Quantum of Solace:
- Beenox (Wii, Windows)
- Eurocom (PlayStation 2)
- Treyarch (PlayStation 3, Xbox 360)
- Vicarious Visions (Nintendo DS)
Now, Beenox I clearly remember them being randomly chosen to develop the Bee Movie Game, which wasn't all that good for kids, as even I found it a little frustrating. Eurocom, probably some budget title developer are probably just trying to earn the publisher (and them) a bit of cash to appeal to the users on PlayStation 2. I have a feeling this will be the worse platform to play the title on because of the developer.
Don't get me started on Treyarch. I played Spider-Man 3. A very glitchy title and one of the most frustrating titles I have ever played on my Xbox 360. Oh, didn't they do Call of Duty 3? I see they're nearly done with the new Call of Duty title and so it must be a busy year for them. Although, Quantum of Solace may look a bit promising because it uses the Call of Duty 4 engine. Of course, I think Treyarch are developing the best versions (clearly from them being associated with current consoles). Vicarious Visions. Hmm, I don't remember playing any portable titles from them but I think there were a few titles on PlayStation 2 from them I played. Maybe a Crash Bandicoot title?
It's a little tempting to buy Quantum of Solace but there are way too many titles now. I already did an impulse buy on Pure and have pre-ordered Lego Batman (released here in UK soon). It's not even November yet (and we all know what game I want then). Damn it - I got signed out of Giant Bomb but luckily I copied this blog entry to the clipboard. Phew.
