GoldenEye 007 for the Wii wasn’t the only Bond game to come out this holiday season. No, the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 also got their dose of Bond in the form of an original Bond adventure called Blood Stone. Since the day these two games were announced it was easy to find people excited for both. We know that GoldenEye turned out great, but not everyone has a Wii, and Blood Stone is a different take on the franchise anyway.
Does Blood Stone enter into the ranks of other quality Bond games like the aforementioned GoldenEye, or does it fall short of the high standards its protagonist conjures up? I finally got the time to charge through the game and can easily tell you that the only reason you would ever choose this game over GoldenEye is if you didn’t own a Wii.
So if you’re one of the five people in America in that boat, please read on to see if Blood Stone is for you.
