James Bond 007: Blood Stone Review
7 February 2011
Excerpt: Blood Stone starts alright, I suppose. There's a chase, some explosions and a bit of shooting right after a cutscene where Bond parachutes out of a plane and kicks somebody to death. You've got some jazzy opening credits - just like in the movies - where Bond punches people so hard they pop into diamonds, and Joss Stone also does a bit of singing.
Conclusion: OVERALL ======== This game isnt bad, sure many bad things happen in it but its still a nice average third perso shooter, i must admit i had fun with the multplayer mode for some weeks, its not boring as breach! Thank you for reading my review and sorry again for mispells etc blah blah blah cuz im not English, see ya!
Typical 007 uses violence to save us from bio-terrorists.

Summary: Parents need to know that JAMES BOND 007: BLOOD STONE is a "Teen-rated" violent third-person shooter that attempts to present a plausible real-world situation that involves massive killing by people with evil motives. The game features references to alcohol and tobacco, requires the character played by gamers (James Bond) to stop the threat through whatever means available -- which is the precursor for violence.
Summary: Certainly not the worst Bond game I’ve ever played, Bizarre Creations have done a nice job with their first crack at the franchise. I would like to have seen them get another shot at making a Bond game, but it seems Activision has other ideas for Bizarre, sadly.
Conclusion: On a technical level James Bond 007: Blood Stone is a competent third person shooter, however it is a game that really lacks that extra polish that sets games apart. Even for the biggest Bond fans I can only recommend this as a rental, as a little Blood Stone seems to go a long way.
Excerpt: Every man wants to be him, every girl wants to be with him. James Bond is an icon and legend. His movies have not won many awards, nor have they been exceptionally well made with profound subtext to get the smart people thinking. The world of 007’s movies have been about fun and exciting action.
