If you're a shooter fan looking to smash through a couple hours of fun while picking up some easy trophies, look no further than 007 Blood Stone! To be honest, i hadn't given this game a second thought after having seen maybe one trailer. One morning at a buddies house he threw it in and asked me to help him get through a part he was stuck on. To my suprise, I started to actually enjoy myself! Went home, put it in my GameQ, and wasn't dissapointed.
First thing you'll notice is the solid voice work from the films stars. I cant say i remember anything from the crazy plot but who cares?! It was just what the doctor ordered with awesome hand to hand takedowns, quick and responsive gunplay, solid cover mechanics, and some of the most intense driving sections i've played in a good long while. What's better is all of the awesomeness i just disclosed is peppered in between loads of 007 styled action set pieces that easily rival anything fro the films.
Don't worry about difficulty. The game offers plenty of settings for your casual gamers, or your diehard shooter fans. If you rock at games like Uncharted or Gears, play through on the hardest difficulty setting and watch the trophies pour in!
You wont get a new Bond film for quite some time.... but that doesn't matter because EA just showed up to quench your thirst with a vodka martini filled with violence! SOLID. RENTAL.
