Bond Returns in James Bond 007: Blood Stone
Daniel Craig reprises his role as our favorite international spy in James Bond 007: Blood Stone and James Bond 007: Goldeneye.
This tuesday marked the launch of two new James Bond games: Blood Stone and Goldeneye. You may recognize the name of Goldeneye as the iconic and classic Nintendo 64 shooter that you played ten years ago, but Wii owners were delighted to find out that Eurocom and Activision teamed up to remake their favorite N64 game.
James Bond 007: Blood Stone on the other hand, is a completely new Bond game which landed on the PS3 and Xbox 360 platforms. This game, along with Goldeneye, features voices from Judi Dench as M and Daniel Craig as Bond. Both of which are the stars from the recent James Bond movies and Dench playing M since the 1995 film Goldeneye.
As expected, the game is filled with action, guns, cars, and women; however, one aspect that it is lacking futuristic gadgets. If you were expecting this game to be filled with former Bond game's gadgets, you may be disappointed. Blood Stone doesn't feature any poison pens, laser shooting watches or explosive keychains but it does feature Bond's greatest new toy... his smartphone.
One aspect of the game that definitely doesn't disappoint is the car scenes. Expensive and ridiculously fast cars have been a part of the James Bond franchise from the beginning but have fallen short in most of the games prior to Blood Stone. Bizarre Creations did a great job with the new driving aspects of the game, putting the older games to shame.
