Overall, Quantum of Solace on PlayStation 2 is not a title that should be passed on before giving it a try. While other versions are no doubt more visually pleasing, they can’t compare in terms of overall fun factor. The gameplay of QoS is more faithful to the heart of Bond and the stealth that it presents but also offers up plenty of gunplay and explosions to satiate those with a flair for action. There are plenty of issues like the slightly faulty cover system, disappointing AI and lack of multiplayer, but that doesn’t stop this Bond from being the most fun of the current crop.
While it’s not as gorgeous as the next-generation version, Quantum of Solace for the PS2 is certainly able to handle the action just as well with enough moments to keep the game exciting. The game does have its share of problems that show up often but in the end there is more good here than bad. In other words, you will most definitely want to step into the shoes of this 007.
Quantum Of Solace n'est pas dénué de qualités. De l'action bien dosée, la possibilité d'alterner entre approches furtives et explosives, quelques emprunts à GRAW bienvenus, une I.A.à peu près dégourdie et des environnements variés. Malheureusement de grosses défaillances sont à déplorer : une réalisation aride, un cheminement narratif décousu, un level-design convenu, une durée de vie famélique et un multijoueurs complètement négligé. Dommage, un petit effort sur ce dernier point aurait permis à Quantum Of Solace de passer du stade de petite distraction trop vite expédiée à celui de FPS solide. Reste néanmoins un jeu agréable à dégotter d'occasion.

Just like the other versions, the game’s story is split about 40/60 between Solace and scenes from Casino Royale, respectively, which is a little disappointing; we liked Casino Royale and all, but this feels like false advertising. And while the game has nice graphics for a late PS2 game, it makes the stunningly gorgeous Bond women appear to be stunningly made out of melting clay. Add to that the complete lack of multiplayer, and you're left with the damning praise of "it's OK… for a movie game."
Tout en suivant le fil conducteur du jeu de Treyarch, Eurocom aura préféré opter pour un jeu de tir à la troisième personne. En résulte un titre qu'on survolera rapidement en alignant phases d'infiltration et gunfights. Malheureusement, pour ce qui est d'aligner les 40 biftons réclamés par Activision, ce sera une autre paire de manches d'autant que la durée de vie famélique ne joue pas vraiment en la faveur de ce Quantum of Solace.
