Blood Drive hits shelves today, looks out of control

The next two weeks are kind of a big deal for Activision. The publisher has two James Bond games, GoldenEye for Wii and Blood Stone, hitting shelves today. Next week, a little game called Call of Duty: Black Ops will be released. 

But the real gem in Activision’s line-up may be Blood Drive, an over-the-top car combat title for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 that’s in stores today. I had a chance to play it for a bit a few weeks back, and you basically smash your car into zombies and try to blow up other cars, all while a foul-mouthed announcer calls the shots. 

It’s a game that’s not going to bring home any “Game of the Year” awards, but seemed like a nice little fun diversion… and you mow down zombies with a car. It’s $49.99, which seems reasonable enough, so I’ll probably pick it up some time this week myself. Can I expect to see any of you online?
