Topic: Blood Stone Is Out
This game has really flown under the radar, getting almost no buzz, news or any significant media coverage. That's usually cause for concern, especially when the game is released by a media powerhouse like Activision, and it looks like the first reviews bear this out.
IGN gives it a 50/100, calling it "painfully average". As was the case with QoS, there seems to be little in the game to distinguish it as a Bond adventure as there is a dearth of gadgets, your only weapons are standard issue guns and rifles and there's only a token appearance by the DB5. The campaign clocks in at a meager 5 hours (shorter even than QoS) and multiplayer appears to be a shallow, forgettable afterthought. I think I'll wait for a price drop before thinking about picking this up. Something tells me I won't have long to wait.
