Videogamer: "Blood Stone starts alright, I suppose. There's a chase, some explosions and a bit of shooting right after a cutscene where Bond parachutes out of a plane and kicks somebody to death. You've got some jazzy opening credits - just like in the movies - where Bond punches people so hard they pop into diamonds, and Joss Stone also does a bit of singing. There's even a virtual rendition of how Dame Judi Dench would look if somebody made a scale copy of her face out of Play-Doh, and then accidentally dropped it on the floor. It's all very okay."
