I'm thinking of picking it up at a video game trading place today. They've got it for like 14 bucks, and I'm gonna trade a couple of duds that I got from there back in.

So I'll only be out a couple bucks probably.

I'm a huge fan of the previous Bond games, as well as the Splinter Cell series, so I'm guessing I'll like FRWL.

Just wondering if anyone has played it.

I've never played it, but from what I've heard, it's underwhelming, especially for a Bond game that's essentially a throwback to the old days.

Yep. So far it is a bit of a letdown. I played it for about an hour, and it's just, I dunno.

Kind of clumsy.

But it's fun, nonetheless. Just not what I had hoped for.

Even with Connery doing the voice, I was kinda bummed. It seemed too simple, although you got to admit those jetpack levels are awesome....sorry, I mean NIIICCEEEE! Mr. Green

Never played it, but a buddy of mine did.
He said the only fun part was shooting the grenades in the hands of the enemy before they can throw them.
I don't even think there is a fight with Red Grant, but not sure about that.
