It’s amazing how popular the James Bond films have become, because when you think about it, we all know he’s going to get the girl and defeat the bad guys. There’s really no intrigue in the destination; it’s how 007 gets from Point A to Point B that makes for an exciting ride. That exciting ride is made all the more interesting when consumers are in the driver’s seat, as is the case with the newest James Bond game, James Bond 007: Blood Stone.
Blood Stone starts with everyone’s favorite double-0 agent preventing a bombing of the world’s top 20 leaders at the G20 summit in Athens. As it progresses down the twisting path we’d expect from any good Bond film, players travel to a half-dozen exotic locales and complete various tasks from a third-person perspective in levels that clock-in at around one hour each. Fans of Ian Fleming’s character will enjoy this title very much, as it packs all the characteristics of a Bond film into a 5- to 6-hour romp around the world. It’s relative ease also makes the game approachable for those whose obsession with Bond hasn’t often tread into the videogame arena.
