I thought that this game was going to be similar to the batman:arkam asylam game, in that since it had nothing to do with the movie, the game wasnt going to suck. Man was i wrong, this game was boring and it had a been there done that sort of aptmosphere to it. i was hoping for a good game, but like the previous james bond game it just wasnt that great. nice try though, maybe a beta would have made this game better.

This game is a 8.5!!!!... This game is fun to play and fun to watch. When you are behind the wheel is amazing, explosions everywhere and a lot of things happening at the same time. When your not behind the wheel, well you are shooting some guys, kicking some.. karate style and causing a lot of trouble. You must play this game, either if you are or not a James Bond fan (Im not a James Bond fan) but this game is great!

P.S
Do not believe in IGN review!, THIS GAME IS SOOOO MUCH FUN!

"James Bond: Blood Stone" could've been great. After all, it has Daniel Craig and Judi Densch reprising the roles, and Joss Stone makes a fine Bond girl in the not quite who she seems Nicole Hunter. And since MGM has gone into bankruptcy, and thus won't be making any Bond films for a couple of years, games are the only place fans of 007 will get their spy fix, so an original Bond story not based on any films is welcome. While all is not bad here (the game is definitely worth playing) all is not perfect either. Graphics for the most part are decent, though Bond and M look a bit odd, though you can tell who they are. Other characters are rendered better, but enemy soldiers tend to fall into the cookie cutter variety. Backgrounds look good, and the explosions are decent enough, though not awe inspiring. Framerate stays pretty consistent, dropping only slightly during the driving sequences. Gun combat and cover works fairly well, and the melee is fun and easy to pull off, as it takes just a touch of the Square button. Hardcore gamers may find this too easy, but casual gamers should enjoy pulling off nifty moves. The driving is equal parts exciting and frustrating. There's often a lot going on, but sometimes it's hard to see where to go. Thankfully, multiple checkpoints don't make you redo the whole thing over. Even so, you may find yourself restarting more often than you'd like due to loose controls. The story is serviceable Bond (better than the last movie) but it's not fantastic. It does have a nice twist at the end, and should keep you going. Depending on your skill, the game will only take you between 6-8 hours to complete one playthrough. There is multiplayer for those who do that, but I can't comment as I do single player only. With the length and the flaws, and no real reason to replay other than for trophies or just to redo the story, this is a rental only.
