Rated 10 out of 10 by justingatesINC oh yeah!
After some people play this game they are like, I think james bond games should stay in first person. Well I disagree, I love quantum of solace and this game evenly but I have to say that the whole takedown scheme should stick to third person(stealth is key to all james bond games and should stay no matter what perspective). Knifing is the way to go in first person not takedowns. I never said I didnt like the takedown controls in quantum of solace I just don't think that it is right to put it in first person. The shooting is this game isn't the best(gun damage, accuracy, etc) but I still love this game and will still be playing it for a while. The online mode isn't as good as the campaign but it is still fun, anyway don't listen to the hate reviews because this game is amazing n0o matter what perspective
Rated 7 out of 10 by HDPJ Not bad. Not great but, not bad...
After a long wait after the release of Quantum of Solace, I was very eager to play Blood Stone. Now, the 5 to 6 hours it took me to play through the single player was enjoyable. Very short single player. The multi-player was fun but, not as deep as Quantum of Solace. The 3rd person view is constant through the single player and multi-player (big plus). The chases aren't that exhilarating. i really wanted to be draw in by the storyline, seeing as how it's completely original and written by one of the Bond film writers but, it never did seem that original. it's worth renting. if you are a die hard Bond fan, try to find it pre-owned before you go out and buy it new. Like I said before, I couldn't wait for this game to come out but, now I regret paying full price for it.
Rated 9 out of 10 by DeeOne You Gotta Get This Game!!!
I just rec'd this game the day it launched and I can tell you that the graphics may suck at very beginning of playing the game, but there is so much action that takes place, you'll soon pay no mind to it. Compared to "Quantum of Solace", it surpasses it because the gameplay is by far the most refreshing thing to the gaming community. The controls are intuitive, not difficult at all to master because the game prompts don't take you by surprize. Boy! The action is top notch too! Even though I haven't finished the game yet, the game definitely reminds me and plays like "Uncharted 2". It truly is a very good game for even those hard core gamers. Get it a try, you won't be disappointed. It's not perfect with the graphics---but I'm sure the developer will do a patch to adjust it.

Quantam of Solace was a great game for all of the people who didn't have the oppurtunity to play Call of Duty. Blood Stone gives you this, but better. This game will give you the oppurtunity to be one of the best players in your online match and be Bond or a main enemy along with 16-players online giving extra challenges. The story will be entirely fresh and original, along with vehicle chases; something QoS missed out on. 3rd-person shooting will give memories back to 007: Everything or Nothing, which is a good thing. All in all, this game should give a brand new outlook on James Bond's true capability. I hope to see you all online at when it releases November 2, 2010
Rated 7 out of 10 by GSand09 Good rental
This game is a great weekend rental, but thats about it. An avid gamer can complete the story in medium mode in a single day. The game itself is presented well, and controls are comfortable. However, the game is very repetitious, and there is almost no challenge when playing on medium difficulty. I could run through each level and kill everyone without being killed. Very easy, and the AI run out into the open to get popped. the levels are all pretty much the same, but the driving sequences were pretty cool, although extremely easy. Overall good fun game, but no challenge and a lot of repetition. This is a rental, not a purchase.
Rated 9 out of 10 by Hugh Definite Challenge lots of mission replays ?
Hi Guys , this game cannot be just picked up and played w/o not restarting check points ! it's not quite clear , which this statement will be understood once you start ! Yes , I have to have challenge , but , to get over the top overly intense is not the same ! the vehicle scenes are almost to the point of crazy escaping reality , but , they're still fun ? I call the game This,That and The Other if you want a hard game this is it ! be prepared for check points ! unless you're just that good ?
Rated 10 out of 10 by mrslaphappy best 007 yet
ok i like 007 games but here lately they have been very ehhh, but when i found out this game was not based on any movie deal or anything, and it was third person cover shooter, i was like heck yeah, its really good im glad the developers decided to keep the franchise going but in a new awesome direction, graphics are the best ive seen in a bond game, the motion blur in games really excites me, no blood but who cares, the hand to hand take downs can be very gruesome still.
Rated 8 out of 10 by aarons333 Excellent Bond game!
Excellent game, fun to play. Story could be better explained, but it was still interesting and entertaining. Game plays like an Uncharted game. Levels get a little repetitive (break in, fight bad guy soldiers, kill a big bad guy, but no real bosses) but I enjoyed it anyway. Favorite thing: car chases were really fast paced and amazing. Worst thing: no actual boss fights. They were all chases on foot/car.
Rated 9 out of 10 by thegamer101 This game is perfect for third person shooters.
I think I like the game for the melee takedowns, the graphics, and how much I like the 007 games and movies. At some parts you would need to figure out ways to climb up to high places, or you might need to scan with your smartphone. The controls are a little weird at first, but once you get used to it, the controls make the game really fun.And the driving controls are easy.The storyline is very good.
Rated 9 out of 10 by shimshamshazaam short and sweet
its a great action shooter!! the driving parts are really fun. i normally hate it when a shooter game tacks on some driving parts but this game is an exception. its almost a stealth game like batman or deus ex 3 but really is more of a solid 3rd person shooter with stealth elements that work well mechanically. its a short campaign but it really didnt need to be any longer.
