I have all the previous 007 games on different other formats (PS2, XBox), but this rates as one of the best. Cleverly combining Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace, this game puts you at the heart of both films!. Can't really comment on the on-line experience, as I've only played the game on my own. The main drawbacks with the gameplay are 1) D Pad control is rather erratic when it comes to taking aim at someone or something. You need a steady hand and fast trigger finger, otherwise you're dead!. 2) The lack of a driving level. Other Bond games have given players the chance to jump behind the wheel of different vehicles (like the Aston Martin!). I'll probably buy the Nintendo Wii version, as I have a gun controller for that and, slipping into the Bond tuxedo, can fully immerse myself in the gameplay. I'm not really a big gaming fan and very selective about the kind of games I buy. Being a Bond fan, though, this is the closest I'll get to being 007....until I get the call from MGM!!!!!
