Blood Stone 007 

 

James Bond has been around for decades. From the numerous action flicks to video games on varies consoles, James Bond is an icon in the entertainment industry. Bond is the ultimate secret agent and always finds a way to cheat death and get the girl while defeating the bad guy. While these attributes are his strengths in the entertainment industry, they project a larger than life hero that views women as objects to be had and enemies as objectives to be conquered.

James Bond 007: Blood Stone has some really good gaming components, but is held back from being a great gaming experience due to the use of women for sex appeal, language, and violence that even suggest torture in some scenes. The game is presented so the gamer feels as though they are part of a movie. Once the opening scene is finished, the Theme Song begins with female silhouettes dancing in the background. No nudity is shown, but not much is left to the imagination.

In one scene Bond is shown getting ready one morning in a hotel room with a women lying in the bed – insinuating they slept together.

The story follows Bond and he has to stop terrorist – as with every other Bond game or movie. In James Bond 007: Blood Stone the gamer will take Bond on a journey that includes saving people, finding and killing terrorists, and finding important data. James Bond 007: Blood Stone does in include the vocal talent from the recent Bond films, which makes the movie presentation style that much stronger. The game is a combination of third person shooter, car driving and close combat.

As mentioned, the game does contain some really nice gaming components. In game control is fluid and the camera follows the action well. Some of my favorite parts of the game are the car chase sequences. Bond will be able to use various exotic cars to chase down baddies. The car controls and chase presentations are top notch. The game also moves in and out of cinema cut scenes with ease.

Gamers will be able to uses Bond’s smartphone to help locate information, enemies and items. I was a little skeptical to see how this would work in game, but I was pleasantly surprised and found myself using the smartphone quite often.

My biggest concern with a game like James Bond 007: Blood Stone is that the gamer is placed in real world settings and dilemmas. This is not a third person shooter like Transformers: War for Cybertron where giant robots are battling in space. James Bond 007: Blood Stone contains graphic scenes where men are tortured, shot in the head and much more. After playing through it, I was surprised that it only received a Teen rating. That being said, I enjoyed some of the control components and gameplay features used by Activision. I look forward to seeing how Activision can use these positive gaming components for a more family friendly gaming experience.
