What does everyone think of Blood Stone? I haven't played it and was wondering if it was worth buying. I suppose Craig's likeness will be a downer for most but the one thing I have heard is that the story is really good. Would you recommend it?

Not for me, Kiwi. I literally have loved that game, and Craig actually ACTS as Bond in that adventure. After all, it's Bruce Feirstein's pen writing the story! :D It's a pure Bond adventure. Yes, I recommend it and you will love it.

Favorite Bond Movie: Dr. No, From Russia With Love, Goldfinger, Thunderball, The Spy Who Loved Me, Moonraker, For Your Eyes Only, The Living Daylights, GoldenEye, Tomorrow Never Dies.
Favorite Movies: There are many to tell, but I prefer something that has a great storyline with loads of escapism and fantastic performance with over-the-top elements which would be pleasing. Action is the main genre I follow, and the spy genre would second that.

It has the best driving sequences of any Bond game (it should, given the pedigree of the developers). But the lack of a crouch function is baffling.

The gameplay was not that exciting, but the level design and the elements of the story, including the locations were terrific.

Of course! She was the brightest part of the game... until it was revealed she was a traitor.

Im not a fan of Daniel Craigs Bond, I thought Peirce Brosnan was better. But Blood Stone looks awesome.

Someone has definately been playing B:AA when thinking about this game.

It seems the Bond Universe is going all out to entertain. I can see the movies being forgotten in favor of games if Blood Stone is anything to go by
