Ian Fleming's British super spy returns in an all-new original adventure, James Bond 007: Blood Stone, that's about as unoriginal as video games get. Blood Stone is an entertaining, just good enough shooter that borrows heavily from better games.
Bizarre Creations' take on seminal super spy James Bond is looking better, bigger and just more Bond-like. Or so my recent hands-off time with the cinematic action game, James Bond 007: Blood Stone, at Gamescom made me think.
The last time I saw James Bond 007: Blood Stone in action, I wasn't convinced. Something, some hard-to-define Bond quality was missing. But developer Bizarre Creations may have won me over with my second look at Blood Stone.
The more violent but still suave Daniel Craig version of James Bond gets an original, cinematic adventure in James Bond 007: Blood Stone, Bizarre Creations' new action game that mixes shooting, boat racing and neck-snapping melee.
It doesn't mean such games are in development - at most the companies owning these marks have moved to protect them - but new domains for GoldenEye and Driver have been registered by Activision and Ubisoft.
