I had borrowed this game recently, but didn't get very far into it.
I really liked the improved 3rd person shooting scheme. There was also a neat smartphone app in the game where it acted as radar for people around you. Can't exactly get one of those for your iPhone or Droid in real life.
I thought the shooting sections were excellent however, I couldn't stand any of the driving levels. They were too unforgiving. Most of the time it's merely a car chase. Your Bond Car has nothing but a gas pedal to aid you, and if you hit another car it's game over. I got frustrated early on in this city level where I had to drive really fast in very narrow roads to get to this SUV going over 100 mph. Not happening.
