The story: 9/10 Despite what some reviewers say i think that the story is a well thought out one and worthy of a movie itself. There a seven chapters (not levels) generally within each chapter there are 3 15-30 minute levels. Yes some would say that the story mode could be longer but my advice is too simply set the difficulty setting to the 2 highest one which i believe is "Agent" this makes the game far more enjoyable and it lasts a bit longer. On the medium difficulty i completed the game in around 7-8 hours of playtime and i beleive that im quite a good gamer. I liked some of the features like focus aims and the very cool stealth and full on takedowns you can perfrom with Bond. This added something extra into the game and made you think more during situations where there are 5 or 6 people in one room. Who should i use my focus aims on? Should i stealth takedown that man behind cover or start a fire fight? This adds an extra element to the gameplay. Other little things such as slow motion sequences and security camera's that need to be disabled add something extra to what would be without them a basic shooter game. Once you've completed the game you can redo it on "007" difficulty which is even harder than "veteran" on COD 6 there are trophies for completing each chapter aswell as trophies for completing a number of moves within the game for example: 150 takedowns or 100 focus aims. I still believe that the game could be longer but otherwise it's a crisp and well made story.
The graphics: 9/10 very good in my opinion, some of the videos of this game don't really do the graphics enough credit.
The sound: 8.Read more ›
The game is a combination of 80% third person shooter, in the style of `Gears of War', and 20% racing game, in the style of `Stunt Man'. For a racing specialist studio it is bizarre that Bizarre Creations have created a game that has poor driving sections, but decent enough shooting sections. The driving elements are pretty linear and require more trail and error than real skill; no matter how good you are death will occur. The shooting sections are stronger as Bond can use a series of weapons and close combat. By partaking of hand to hand Bond can build up a meter that allows him a series of one hit kills. As this is the new Bond the level of gadgetry is limited to a smart phone that can pick up movement and cameras.
`Blood Stone' is not an awful game, but it lacks any sort of originality to stand out. Like the movie tie-in game `Quantum of Solace' it all feels a little flat. This is not helped by the uncanny looking model of Craig and Joss Stone's almost dead like voice acting. Bond should be a character designed for gaming, but `Blood Stone' has a distinct lack of polish in terms of compelling gameplay. However, with its solid level design, decent enough online multiplayer and graphical fidelity there is enough here for a Bond fans to enjoy if found at a reasonable price.
How satisfied you'll be with the single player storyline will depend very much on how much of a hardcore gamer, and a Bond fan, you are. Chances are the former will find the game a little short, although I certainly didn't. Your view of the Multiplayer mode will no doubt also be a factor - I found it a little lacking, although as a relative novice, I'm quite sure it could be much more exciting if you got used to it. Overall, though, I can see 'Bloodstone' appealing to the Bond audience a great deal, moreso than veteran gamers - and that's no bad thing. It's a very well constructed game which emulates the feel of a modern-day 007 film, and one that I wouldn't hesitate to recommend.
