Is the game good? Because that intro is amazing! Especially the theme as to be honest I prefer it to many of the recent movie themes XD

I've played through the Quantum of Solace game and really enjoyed it ^^


Just thought I'd share my recent enthusiasm for it, is all!

Movies: The Spy Who Loved Me. Actor: Pierce Brosnan. Theme: You Only Live Twice. :D

    Bizarre Creations were a great studio: both Metropolis Street Racer for the Dreamcast and Project Gotham Racing for the Xbox were awesome racing games. Unfortunately, Bloodstone didn't perform well financially and they were closed down by Activision (the Bond licensees at the time).

    The game itself was great, a proper "Craig entry" during the hiatus between QoS and SF, and I bet you'll enjoy it much more than QoS, which was only ok-ish IMHO (apart from the excellent Kerli intro song).

    I just re-visited both games and enjoyed them a lot despite being super old by gaming standards. QoS is a simple and generic shooter gameplay-wise but has the original QoS and, surprisingly, the whole CR storyline, too, which is nice. Bloodstone is the far better game technically, and has some non-shooter components as well, such as car and boat chases and some stealth elements, though it is still mainly a shooter. Also, the story isn't exactly unique or creative but certainly better than anything the actual writers came up with after Skyfall 😃 I was pleasantly surprised to have our hero still alive and childless at the end, with no mention of any stepbrothers whatsoever...

    Dammit, @Ornithologist, now you've made me want to dust my old PS3 and do the same, and also my Wii in order to play the GE remake...

    That is pretty much the highlight of the entire game.

    Wow I had no idea it was by them. I have a copy of MSR and Blur is one of my favourite racing games ^^

    QOS I played through and thoroughly enjoyed :)

    Blood Stone... yeah maybe I should play it through too. I wish it was on PC!

    I enjoyed it, I thought Craig was very good in it too.

    It does exist for PC!

    I had a blast playing Bloodstone although it's been a fair few years since I last played it. Definitely worth a few hours of your time at least!
