James Bond: Blood Stone
If your not a hardcore gamer don't play it or buy
It's a good game but it's in 3rd person that's the bad part about the game but it is a good game ok!
best bond yet
this is an excellent james bond game. great for bond fans. you play, of course, as bond, james bond, in a very good bonds storyline. but, it's the journey that's the fun part and it's done with lot of styles and quit engaging. loved the car and boat chases, eventhought, sometimes it could get difficult playing without a gaming wheel. this game draws you into bond's world without much effort because of the way it involves the player in making many of the decisions. the graphics are fine and the music score could have been better, but the game play is the shining star here. daniel craig's voice acting is very good and provides an authentic feel to the whole story. the net effect is like seeing a bond movie in the theather but with you the player as bond, very nicely done. the only complain is that it's really short. i was surpurised to see the ending credits came up only after a few hours. regardless, it's an enjoyable and way cool, in a way that only bond can deliver, game. better than QOS. highly recommand it.
i don't really know if this game will be all that great. it looks like the last james bond game that was made, quantum of solace, this one, i know, has a different story line but it looks like the same game over again with a different story. i mean sure they may have added some different guns, or some different martial arts moves, but it also looks like they didn't improve the graphics, which to some people might be a big thing, to others they just want to play the game. hopefully the xbox live version of this game will be better, with different gadgets and whatnot, but i will buy this game just to test it out and if i don't like it i will just send it back. all in all, it looks ok, the graphics look the same and it looks just like quantum of solace with a different storyline
It's good for a 5 hour game.
This new installment to the James Bond franchise isn't bad in any regards, it just isn't all that great. The best parts of the game by far are the set piece moments where the action is intense (even though the game does do some of the cooler stuff for you in cut scenes). The worst part is that it's too short, you don't really want to come back unless you're a hardcore multiplayer kind of person. It was only $10 when I bought it and that's not bad, but I could have invested that into a pre-order or something. If you love James Bond like me, it's not a stupid investment, but if you're more casual and looking for a cheap fun game I recommend something else.
8/10 or 4/5
this game is not as bad as some people are making it out to be..i picked it up on release..and just got done with it now all in all took me about 6 hours to beat..i found the single player to be great i will admit i hated the parts where you had to chase someone down in a car..the only one i liked was the last chase in the game..anyway after i beat the single player i wanted to try the multiplayer and well for some reason it kept disconnecting me..all in all this game was not bad in the end id say rent unless your a person who tends to replay things but i can only see playing this once more on 007 mode that is until i can try the multiplayer.
Way Too Short
I got this game when it was new for $10. I started playing it and i thought it was pretty good. By the time I finished it that same day I had some different opinions on this game. The graphics aren't really good, they're pretty much like Iron Man 2 Game graphics. This game I found out was probably only worth $10. Also, I don't like the gun setup, first you always have to have your pistol, and second you don't have much ammo to last you a long time. It seems like you need to get new ammo every ten seconds. I do enjoy the take downs though. My advice to everyone is to rent this because you'll probably beat it in your rent time.
Not what I expected......
I am new to all this review, preview stuff on gamestop.com, so I'm not sure what to say. This game is a LOT different than what I expected. I am a HUGE fan of 1st person shooter games, an awsome example, is Quantem of Solace. First person shooter combined with third person combat. That was pure genius. From what I hear, and correct me if i'm wrong, that this game is a 3rd person shooter. I have played games like that, and returned them within 3 hours!!!! I've already pre-ordered the game, so if I am not entertained, it will go right back to the shelf it came from.
Bond, The Best Bond.
A wonderful yet slightly familiar James Bond story is mixed in with a loose gameplay feel comparable to Splinter Cell. Shooting can be challenging and takedowns never fail. Add in a few fair driving scenes and you realize it's got all the epic Bond moments the game advertises. A nice story while we await the franchise's future, it very well could be the last we see of 007 for some time. Daniel Craig and Judi Dench play their usual roles and deliver with great voice acting. Shame it was a short story but worth the money. Very entertaining, yet enjoyable enough to play straight through.
Great Bond game for any Bond lover.
The game is great all around. The fact that it has a great cast to do the voice work and that Daniel Craig is doing his own voice is just one of those little details that make it great. The story line is good, but Im still not sure why its called Bloodstone. I mean Bond does have a way to make titles cool, but have nothing really about the story such as "Quantum of Solace or The World is Not Enough". Still I think this ranks up there with being a great and simple shooter while sticking to the bond aspects or at least those of Daniel Craigs version of Bond.
Not amazing but solid
Well lets start with the graphics the graphics aren't amazing but you can tell there next gen graphics and voice acting is pretty good at times from the actors but can be a lil off at time in particular scenes. Now where it comes to game play that's were it shines a lil better because of the take downs and the focus shots but besides that the driving sequences are pretty fun but it still just a memory game at the end but it helps that it has quick checkpoints and last the story is not hard to follow with good plots and twists so ultimately its a solid game.
