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, and at times almost desperate Bond, the young MI6 agent's methods may be messy, but he is ultimately effective.
Gameplay features lots of gun-fighting and hand-to-hand combat, in addition to surveillance and stealth sequences. The game is played with the DS held sideways, with the third-person action playing out on the touch screen (held towards the player's dominant hand) and maps and inventory screens displayed on the other screen.
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. ~ T.J. Deci, All Game Guide
