I'm Bond, James Bond!

I'm not even a guy but it still feels bad ass to say that famous phrase. Well for those of you who ever wanted to feel a little more like the 007 himself there is a video game out now that puts you right into the action of the world famous secret agent himself. 007 Quantum of Solace is a classic first person shooter. Much like the Call of Duty game I reviewed earlier. The boys around here LOVE first person shooters and honestly usually I don't give them much more than a quick look as I am an adventure/sim game kind of girl. However 007 is really impressive and not as gritty as other shooter games I have played.

007 Quantum of Solace follows the movie Casino Royale. I never saw Casino Royale the movie, though I have had it on my to do list it just keeps falling down the list for some odd reason. I really need to add it to my movie account at some point. However 007 Quantum of Solace the game really blows me away. You know there are some games that have amazing cut scenes but when it comes to game play though they still look similar you loose most of the detail. There was no detail spared on anything in 007 Quantum of Solace. One of the most impressive aspects to me, at least, was the fact that you can actually use the scopes on the guns without having to zoom into the scope itself. Meaning you can see down the scope of your gun as well as see the surrounding area just like you would on a real gun. This may have been done on other games but personally this was the first time I've seen it and WOW I love it!

I've actually become oddly intrested in guns lately. Connor's dad is a police officer now and guns have suddenly become a undeniable part of our life. I've always been terrified of guns but now I feel strangely intrested but I still don't have the guts to touch one in real life. 007 Quantum of Solace was the first game that really gave me the true feeling of using a gun without actually using one. I think I may be ready (maybe) to take my first gun lesson this spring. Though I do have to say the funnest thing to do on 007 Quantum of Solace is run up behind people and kick the crap out of them. Call it theraphy for a bad day.

I honestly cant tell you how 007 Quantum of Solace and Casino Royale are simular as I never saw the movie but I've heard from friends who tried out the game and saw the movie that there are some simular scenes and levels. The game is multiplayer friendly so you can get 12 of your best buddies together and play online or pair up with random players on the network. I tried this game out on the PS3 but its also availble for the Xbox 360, DS, Wii, Playstation 2, and PC.
