★★ THIS generic James Bond ac­tion game mixes third­per­son gun­play with driv­ing se­quences but fails to ex­cite. Play­ers will travel from Athens and Monaco to Bangkok and Is­tan­bul, fol­low­ing a story of bio­chem­i­cal weapons and in­ter­na­tional con­spir­acy. Un­for­tu­nately, en­vi­ron­ments are drab, the cover-based game­play is unin­spired and Bond’s ‘‘mark and ex­e­cute’’style abil­ity is su­per­flu­ous. Out now.
