Players take the role of the darker, grittier James Bond in Quantum of
Solace, the first 007 game from publisher Activision. Following Daniel
Craig's portrayal of a violent, driven Bond, the young MI6 agent's
methods may be messy, but he is ultimately effective. Gameplay features
plenty of gun-fighting and hand-to-hand combat, as well as surveillance
and stealth sequences. The game is built on Infinity Ward's Call of Duty
4 game engine, and features similar graphical quality, third-person
cut-aways, and enemy AI.
The setting and story of Quantum of
Solace are based directly on the movies, both Casino Royale and its
sequel, which shares the game's title and autumn 2008 release.
Developers re-created locations from both films, based on thousands of
photos. All main characters have the likenesses and voices of their
cinematic counterparts, including Craig as Bond and Olga Kurylenko as
Camille, plus Mathieu Amalric, Judi Dench, Eva Green, and Mads Mikkelsen
in their respective roles.
