    It's full of satisfying melee combat, signature Bond moments, great cover combat, pretty visuals and awesome driving sequences. It does feature that classic Bond mood to a point and is definitely worth a play through for single player experience.

    Bloodstone does not do anything wrong, but isn't outstanding or great either, just mediocre.

    Blood Stone isn't a bad game, but has numerous imperfections too.

    One of the biggest problems with the game is its length, clocking in at about 4 to 6 hours depending on your difficulty preferences. Mix that with a minimalistic multiplayer mode and we have a recipe for a weekend rental rather than a purchase, even though the fact paced action and naturally entertaining story are worth a playthrough for any true fan of Bond. I really enjoyed the ride while it lasted, but anyone that shells out full MSRP is going to feel jilted after the credits roll.

    A small step forward for Activision's value titles, a huge setback for Bond video games. At this point, I simply wish they'd ported GoldenEye to modern (Wii notwithstanding) consoles.

    Incredibly easy, very short. [Jan 2011, p.109]

    Solid 9 for effort. I gave it ten to balance out the user score. Didnt expect much from this movie tie in. Pleasantly surprised. Very pretty,Solid 9 for effort. I gave it ten to balance out the user score. Didnt expect much from this movie tie in. Pleasantly surprised. Very pretty, cinematic. Reminds me of the jason bourne game. The vehicle sections are handled well given the games developed by the people behind Project Gotham Racing series, you'd expect no less. I'd strongly suggest playing at the hardest difficulty setting (available)

    Best bond game since Goldeneye

Trust me I know. Sense i was a little kid I have been a bond fan. Watched all of the movies. I remember playing 007 goldeneye on the Nintendo 64 when i was a kid, sadly that was the last good 007 game I remember, till now. You probably don't want to buy a bad game, But that is indefinably not going to happen when you buy 007 Bloodstone, it seems as thou Activision, has made a HUGE impact on the 007 franchise, and have made HUGE improvements. Their recent 007 games Quantum of Solace, and Goldeneye on the Wii, are very good games, I'd recommend them to you also. However, in my opinion Bloodstone is the best of the three, if you want a true bond, experience this is the game to get. Expand

Original story, nice presentation. Feels like a Bond movie to me. For when it came out the graphics were subpar and the game is not very deep or long. It seemed dated compared to other games of that era. It probably got the proper reviews as a new game for $60 in 2010. But prices change and graphics quality is all relative. As a cheap used game it is certainly worth a play through. Had this game came out 4 years earlier it would have been considered a AAA title.

    The cinematics and scripted events are beautiful. The driving really fun. The stealth and shooting so-so. The models and faces not so great. Original actors doing the voices, Judy Dench and Daniel Craig. They also give the graphics a cool grainy film effect that gives it a unique cinematic look.

    I gotta be honest, as a Bond fan I found myself playing this game several times over just to see an original story, hear the music and geek out on Bond. Takes just a few hours even at the hardest difficulty.

    I appreciate how the now defunct developer tried to make something other than a boring FPS clone. They were heading in the right direction, unfortunately Activision just couldn't give it the love it deserved. They followed this up with uninspired CoD clones Golden Eye, which was just alright, and Legends which was laughable.

    If you are a Bond fan, like video games and have proper expectations this game is definitely worth picking up cheap. If getting the PC version be sure to max out the graphic settings.

Dench, Bondian music and story, film-like structure and cut-scenes, exotic locales, chases on foot and in various vehicles, huge explosions...). The system of shooting from cover is done well and you can aim covered, pretty effectively shoot "blindly" with just weapon showing, vault across small covers and stealthily take down enemies from such covers. There is enough weapons to mix things up (pistols, shotguns, sub-machine guns, assault rifles, snipers, grenade launchers...) and your trusty smart-phone is really smart (it tracks enemies, shows you the intel and way-points if you are lost, hacks terminals...). The race/chase levels are exciting and also arcade-like in their simplicity but that's the main source of fun here: even if you have almost no shooting, driving and sneaking skills, you will almost effortlessly achieve Bond-like feats of super-spy mastery - and that's not a small thing.

This game seems like a dumb downed Splinter Cell, but that means you have a lot of fast paced action. The graphics are passable, but some textures look poor. This game really captures the James Bond style of beating people up with melee attacks. The car chases are a great addition. I would recommend this game if you find it cheap or rent it as it's not very long and the multiplayer is only decent. Expand
