Blood Stone

If you want a good Bond game then you're probably better off looking elsewhere! The story behind Blood Stone's not bad, unfortunately it doesn't offer you much of a challenge and it's all over rather quickly. Bond fans might enjoy this one, although I wouldn't count on it, and the £12.85 price tag over at ShopTo should save you about £2 on the next best offer coming in from Amazon. It's a real shame that this wasn't a great game because the potential was definitely there.

Blood Stone 007

I'm quite the James Bond aficionado, but I can tell you that Blood Stone is decidedly average at best. Yes there's plenty of action, fast cars, exotic locations, and a scantily clad girl or two, but where's the style and sophistication that Bond brings with him! Also, nothing really poses a challenge to you and the single player'll only last you about five hours. If you still want to have a go with it though, then you can get hold of a copy on the PC for £12.97, which is just over £2 cheaper than the next best offer. You'll need to be quick though because Cool Shop are down to their last few copies.

Last May, Killzone 2 won the prestigious Ivor Novello for Best Original Videogame Score. Now it's time to turn our attention to this year's candidates, which include Ninja Theory's post-apocalyptic epic, Enslaved: Odyssey to the West; the now defunct Bizarre Creation's 007: Blood Stone; and Creative Assembly's historical retelling, Napoleon: Total War.

If you're smarting from an omission or two from that list, remember that the Ivor Novello is a British award, and as such one-third of the nominees must be British or Irish. The winner will be announced on the 19th of May, and personally I hope Bizarre win, if only so we don't forget one of our favorite studios to fall by the wayside. [Joystiq]

James Bond Blood Stone

Looks like Play are letting people grab copies of Blood Stone on the PS3 for almost £2 cheaper than the next best offer on the market at the moment. Seeing as this is a Bond game you're going to want a fair amount of action, some fast cars, and one or two great locations, so it's good that Blood Stone ticks these boxes. However, 007 should also bring a certain amount of style and sophistication to the mix, which sadly is something the game's missing. Thanks to [email protected] HUKD.

James-Bond-007-Blood-Stone

Depending on your perspective, Blood Stone is either a disappointingly brief and insubstantial homage to Her Majesty's most famous spy, or a fun ride that puts you squarely in Bond's ass-kicking shoes. My two cents? You could buy this...or, you know, you could buy Splinter Cell: Conviction instead. But, if you're hell-bent on paying homage to Bizarre by jumping into bed with Mr. Bond, Gameplay is where it's at. A quid cheaper than competitors on both platforms, it's the lowest price we've seen for the game. It will almost certainly go lower, though.

On the one hand, Blood Stone is a ridiculously easy waste of space on your gaming shelf that offers up a shiny example of one of the least challenging games of the last few years. On the other, it does kind of make you feel like a bit of a bad-ass. Unfortunately, the beauty of Bizarre Creations' foray into the world of Bond is only skin deep, and its short length was scandalous at full price. Worth a glance for the Bond fan at fifteen pounds...maybe. Or you know, just buy Splinter Cell Conviction instead. Give joeeeallover at HUKD a hand folks.

007 Bloodstone

Seeing as I'm a pretty huge James Bond fan, I really wanted this to be a great game, and my hopes were raised when I started to read up about the game's plot and got my first few glimpses of gameplay footage. Sadly, despite looking great, Blood Stone just doesn't pack the punch that we've come to expect from MI6's top agent and it's another title to add to Q's failed gadgets scrap heap. If you want to find out why it didn't push our buttons then I'd suggest you give Neil's review a read.

James-Bond-Blood-Stone

Is it too much to expect a James Bond game on at least the same quality level as the N64's Goldeneye? Is it? It seems like it, because since Rare revolutionized FPS' on consoles, the state of 007 adventures has rapidly declined. Blood Stone looked set to buck tradition, however, with a capable developer behind the wheel, the full vocal backing of Daniel Craig and even Joss Stone. In the end, however, it's a lukewarm mess of solid ideas and uninspiring gameplay. A pity. However, if you'd like to try it out for yourself before denouncing Bond, then Play have the cheapest offer around for the PS3 version of Blood Stone. Just £14.99.

James Bond: Blood Stone | £25.85 | ShopTo | PS3

What a pity. Considering the caliber involved, Bizarre Creations, Daniel Craig, the financial support of Activision. And, despite this, we have yet another Bond dud to add to the pile. Blood Stone did look good, although I suppose its sudden announcement and even more abrupt release was telling. You can read Neil's pretty damning review above, and it seems as, despite Bizarre's best intentions, looking to capture the gritty, brutal essence of the Craig era, Blood Stone is simply a bad game. However, if you're a Bond aficionado, or are looking towards the barren months ahead with uncertainty, then this cut-price deal is right down your alley.

James Bond 007: Blood Stone didn't carry a license to thrill when we saw it at Gamescom, and our full review doesn't pull any punches when it comes to critiquing a miserably short campaign and nil replay value. However, it certainly isn't short of style, making players feel much more like James Bond than the new Goldeneye reboot. Blood Stone is big on spectacle and perfect for undiscerning fans of the legendary super spy.

The “one man against the odds” nature of James Bond makes him a perfect character for video games. A tough-as-nails trained killer, an expert in all sorts of weaponry taking on the various minions of whatever psychopathic industrialist is taking over the world this week? Perfect.

In one hit you’ve got the outline of pretty much any first person shooter ever created, but coupled with over half a century of legend, history and goodwill. There isn’t a man out there who hasn’t fancied himself as Bond, so any opportunity to put yourself in those (handcrafted) shoes is one you’re going to take time and time again, right?

Well, yes, right, if you’re playing GoldenEye on the N64 (and possibly the Wii / DS for the revamp but we’re awaiting word on that), but a big no if you’re playing Blood Stone on one of the other consoles. With both games hitting shelves on the same day, Blood Stone was always going to suffer in comparison: hell, GoldenEye is the title that got me into gaming in the first place. But, having had a hands on, sneak preview of a couple of Blood Stone levels, I was genuinely excited by it. It looked amazing, the production values are incredible, the passion of the team behind it was obvious... And clearly something big has gone very, very wrong.

Video Game New Releases: November 1st - 7th

Another week, another new releases post. This coming Friday should be a good one for Bond fans, as Activision release the double whammy of Bizarre's Blood Stone and Eurocom's re-imagining of one of the finest FPS titles of all time. Elsewhere, if you ever wanted to teach a hamster kung fu, well, Zhu Zhu Pets might have you covered for that this week, Kratos pops his head up on the PSP once again and the third Pokemon Ranger game finally gets a release over here.

There's only one game on this list that I truly fear, though, and it comes in the form of SEGA's Football Manager 2011, a series that measures game time in months and years rather than hours. If there's a slight economic downturn this month it'll probably have something to do with people bunking off of work to play this. You heard it here first.

NB. Release timetables are randomly generated by Cthulhu's amphibious minions and, as such, are prone to shifting without notice so do be aware that some of these dates may be subject to change.
