    I don't hold high hopes.

    Obviously nothing has lived up to Goldeneye, but I'm sure the EA games wouldn't have been perceived to have been as bad, if Goldeneye hadn't existed. All other James Bond games have been terrible.

    I imagine this will be a third person view with forced button mashing sequences.

    I'm sure it will be fairly ok, just not brilliant.

    I have very fond memories of Goldeneye and Nightfire. Both very limited by the tech of the era. Looking forward to seeing what they manage to churn out. From IO you have to expect an experience closer to hitman than a FPS.

    A modern Hitman engine Bond game sounds absolutely fantastic if done right, all it will take is to tone down the stealth focus but retain it for some parts of the game, but basically just make it a bit more shooty and drivey (technical terms) than hitman with a good story and voice acting... ...and boom, instantly the best Bond game in a long time.

    Yeah, the engine is more than capable, the IO team used to be, but they seemed to have lost sight of what made the Hitman games unique, but most importantly enjoyable.

    They clearly aren't bad games, but they could be spectacular games, if IO had decent leadership.

    Very first Bond origin story, eh......?

    So the bit in Casino Royale where he earns his Double-Oh doesn't count?
    Or Fleming's own mention in Casino Royale of how Bond mas made 007 after killing two enemy agents - A Japanese spy on the thirty-sixth floor of the RCA Building at Rockefeller Center, NYC, and a Norwegian double agent who had betrayed two British agents?


    If Hitman is anything to go by, I will remain unenthused until it's on the shelves and getting good reviews....

    Well it is made in Denmark, so it is probably going to be ( massive self censorship )
