“James Bond Will Return” we’re promised, yet we’ll need some time to recover from this travesty of a game.
Last year Eurocom delivered GoldenEye: Reloaded, an HD remake which was arguably the best James Bond game since well, the original GoldenEye 64. Unfortunately the developer hasn't been able to maintain that trajectory with 007 Legends; an abhorrent 'tribute' to the history of the British super spy that doesn't just take liberties - it takes the piss. At a time when early reports suggest the celluloid Bond is reaching a new high with Skyfall, it's a shame that his video game counterpart has reached his digital downfall. If you're really dying for a Call of Duty-style shooter experience, then sit tight as Black Ops II has likely got more money than God behind it and it's only a month away.
007 Legends is a well-intentioned mess. The idea has potential – a little like Sonic Generations, I suppose – but the way it’s been presented is more than underwhelming. What we have here is a game that is vaguely enjoyable, perhaps more so to those who love the franchise (although the changes might be enough to put those people off), but with too many problems.
007 Legends' greatest failing is that it cherry picks moments from Bond's illustrious history but fails to capture their hearts, all the while lacking self-generated value as its own game. Die-hard Bond fans will feel underwhelmed — if not peeved — by the treatment of these films, and the lowest-common-denominator approach to gameplay is downright bland. Considering Eurocom's experience with the franchise we would have expected better from the studio, and it is with some sadness that the spy who loved them proved to be their undoing.
Le seul véritable mérite de 007 Legends est de nous donner envie de revoir les anciens James Bond dont il s'inspire. D'un point de vue ludique par contre, c'est le vide complet. Un level design au rabais, des temps de chargement innommables, des missions ennuyeuses, un gadget surexploité débouchant sur des phases indigestes, un visuel vieux de dix ans, des mécaniques de jeu laborieuses, une IA risible, une difficulté mal gérée... Plutôt que de poursuivre, autant laisser le mot de la fin au producteur du titre qui déclarait il y a peu : 007 Legends va vous ramener en 1997. Tu ne croyais pas si bien dire mon pote.
