007: Quantum of Solace / Meer: Shedload of Griping

Preview wot I wrote about the upcoming Bond game is up over on Eurogamer. It's not, suffice to say, one of those 'lalalalalala everything is shiny wooo' previews:

It might end up feeling like Bond skins taped over a hasty Any-FPS skeleton. While we've only seen two levels so far, the bizarre presence in those of exploding fuel tanks ("mousetraps", according to Treyarch) inside a posh hotel lobby suggests this an action game that very much plays by the rules.

While I'm actually fairly gentle to it, I'll add the qualifier I did over there - there's still a few months of work left to go on the game, so it could yet be more Goldfinger than Die Another Day. Oh - beware of the Angry Internet Man in the piece's comments thread, loudly crying foul at the partially pessimistic tone. Whadda ya think - are not entirely positive previews of upcoming games welcome journo-honesty, or miserabilist, unprofessional presumption?
