I got my 007 Legends today! It's not actually all that bad so far. Only done the Goldfinger section, but it feels like Bond. Mostly, at least.|
The framerate is all over the place, the general feel of the game is a bit cheap and cheerful, but the gunplay is solid enough. I especially like the boss melee system, which has you punching an enemies unguarded areas using the analogue sticks. The upgrade system is also pretty cool.
That said, this is only so far. There have only been token attempts at stealth in the first section, and there was something a bit off. I don't think a longer stealth section would hold up well, so I reckon later on I'll be cursing the developers and their children.
The Wii U stuff is so useless they shouldn't have bothered. The Gamepad shows the same map as the TV and buttons for your weapons and gadgets, and a couple of the hacking mini-games go to the Gamepad screen. It bafflingly doesn't even include Off TV Play despite the poor Gamepad implementation.
So, although I'm enjoying it, I wouldn't recommend it, especially on Wii U. If you want to be Bond, buy Lego City Undercover and make yourself a little Lego Bond. The story even almost feels like it could be a Bond movie.
