IGN: James Bond 007: Blood Stone Review

Blood Stone is not a bad game: it's just a painfully average one. There aren't any majorly broken elements to it, but just because this Stone is relatively polished, doesn't make it a gem. There really isn't anything at all remarkable about it, and even though it's extremely short it still manages to wear out its welcome thanks to its extremely repetitive design. If GoldenEye is indeed the Sean Connery of 007 video games, then Blood Stone is the George Lazenby; not bad, but not good either, and forgettable in almost every way. At just five hours long and lacking in any real innovation or challenge, it won't leave you feeling shaken nor stirred, just shortchanged.

Presentation - 5.5
Graphics - 6.0
Sound - 6.0
Gameplay - 5.0
Lasting Appeal - 4.0

talking about let downs :(...well at least goldeneye for wii is good, i'll pick this one

SoapShoes2882d ago

Uh, how do you know it's good?

yippiechicken2882d ago

Not that this means much to most people, but IGN gave Goldeneye a 9.0. I just got back from picking it up. Hope it's as good as they say.

Why is it a flop? Because IGN says so?

@sinncross- I remember HHG saying that this was going to be an AAA game. I'm starting to think that HHG may be to easy to please. He rarely gives a bad review. From what I remember, he gave Prototype a 9.7/10. I bought Prototype on his recommendation alone...and the game AT BEST is a 7.5 IMO.

Jamegohanssj52882d ago

People actually think IGN knows how to formulate good reviews?


lh_swe2882d ago

Because just as you said giving Prototype isn't a 9.7...I think he's trying to be a crowd pleaser, because if he rarely disses a game then theoretically he shouldn't loose any fans but because he can't see past his nose he doesn't realise that it only makes him look like an idiot.

I was actually expecting this one to be good...The last good Bond game was Nightfire. Awesome MP.

DarthMoose2881d ago

Everything or nothing owns Nightfire, my bond game by far

NarooN2881d ago

Correction: The last good Bond game was Everything or Nothing. Nightfire was amazing on PS2/Xbox/Gamecube (the PC port was FUCKING TERRIBLE), but EoN was also brilliant.

Wow that's a bad score. Not the "Triple A" title I was hoping for...

sinncross2882d ago

After QoS I'm surprised you thought this could be Triple A.

Sure it looked decent and had the potential to be good but it never looked to be that it was going to be top tier material..

cygnuszero22882d ago

Oh lord, please dont tell me you actually expected this to be good.

MGRogue20172882d ago

... Wait for a huge price drop

HungPHATx2882d ago

Here we go IGN ! It's MOH again ..

chasegarcia2882d ago

ign is finally laying the smack-down. Now if they can just re-review GTA4.

mrv3212882d ago

AND MW2... hype is really really killing reviews blinding them from the facts.

He said that MW2 is far more balanced than MW.
