It was interesting hearing connery do the voices. I'm sure I've seen the movie before, but I don't remember a whole lot from it. It's like a third person action title - graphics are okay for Gamecube (doesn't take much, I guess). Driving missions are terrible, cutscenes are decent.
There's my totally aimless review.

I'll avoid EON then - every time I pick up a new game, I end up having to play through it in front of my little guy - and if it's too tough, he'll think I'm a pussy.
