Quantum of Solace filled with celebs

Daniel Craig, Judi Dench, and Olga Kurylenko from upcoming James Bond film lend voices, likenesses to Activision Blizzard's movie tie-in shooter.


Robert Ludlum's The Bourne Conspiracy being an exception to the rule, high-profile movie-to-game tie-ins have increasingly banked Hollywood talent. Activision Blizzard's upcoming James Bond: Quantum of Solace will continue to follow that trend. The publisher said today that it has secured the voices and likenesses of many of the top names featured in Quantum of Solace and Casino Royale for its upcoming shooter.

As could be surmised by previously released screenshots, leading man Daniel Craig (Layer Cake, A Kid in King Arthur's Court) will reprise his role as the suave secret agent James Bond in the game, and he will be joined by the latest Bond girl, Olga Kurylenko (Hitman). Judi Dench (Chocolat, The Chronicles of Riddick), who portrays hard-edged Bond boss M in the films, will also appear in the game, as will 007's newest nemesis Dominic Greene, played by Mathieu Amalric (Munich).

Given that the Bond game spans both Quantum of Solace and Casino Royale, a few familiar faces from the first film will also make an appearance. Eva Green (Kingdom of Heaven, The Golden Compass), aka femme fatal Vesper Lynd, will join Casino Royale antagonist Mads Mikkelsen (King Arthur) as Le Chiffre in lending their voices and likenesses to the game.

James Bond: Quantum of Solace for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 2, Wii, Nintendo DS, and PC will accompany the silver-screen premiere during the week of November 4. Of note, Treyarch, which is developing the 360 and PS3 editions of the game, has implemented the Call of Duty 4 game engine to power Quantum of Solace.

Is Olga the new Bond girl? I wish they didn't kill off the last one from Casino Royale.

I cant wait I'm really happy that the game has the real voices and likeness as the major characters from both Bond 21 and Bond 22. This is going to be the best Bond game since Goldeneye for sure :D

This game looks great but I shouldn't hype it that much, most movie games suck.... I will wait for reviews.

love the bond films, but not to sure about bond games. this game would be alot better and show off the new engine if it was a third person shooter!!! just my thoughts.

Oh Judi Dench, such an amazing actress.

Goldeneye on the N64 was the best Bond game to ever be released and will stand the test of time against crazy upstarts like this QoS game. However, using the CoD4 engine should give them a chance at still making a great game.

Well...even though, the game isn't very promising. Looking at the previous impressions, it's rather doubtful.

I wasn't that hopeful til I remembered it's using the IW CoD4 engine - surely they can't screw up too bad with that under the hood. And yes, Goldeneye was epic back in the day.

That's good. Hearing immitation voices in games can sometimes be quite painful.

Avatar image for MichaeltheCM

Wow... is James Bond really the only film franchise that can make a decent game tie-in? *cough*GoldenEye*cough*

Avatar image for godzillavskong

Any game that uses the game engine from Call of Duty 4 gets my attention. Looks interesting.

Avatar image for ronniepage588

The actors should put on an outstanding role. I just hope that the game puts out an outstanding piece as well!

Avatar image for ebonyflame

The voice acting for this series has never really been a problem and now with the addition of the actual movie voice actors for the game with the same name, lets just hope this game can live up to the 007 heritage, or should I say break the heritage, and be a decent game.

I hope a demo of the game is made available on PSN. The last bond game I played was Goldeneye for the N64.

Avatar image for Jman251

I hope a demo is made avaialbe on PSN, so I can give this game a try. The last Bond game I played was way back on N64.

Sweet! Treyarch seems to be doing so good work with James Bond and CoD:WaW.

Steve Two, how about the Chronicles of Riddick. This game looks great.

Avatar image for SteveTwo

I tried to think of another awsome movie based game and drew a profound blank. I'm sure there is atleast one... maybe...

Avatar image for Gruug

I am actually looking forward to the PC version of this game. Very glad to hear that the actors from the movie are lending their talent. I am a huge James Bond fan and think that it is just too bad that there are not more games on this rich franchise.

Avatar image for combatsoldier

This might actually be one of the very first movie based games that will be awsome.
