James Bond 007: Blood Stone really wasn't a bad game, even if it fell shy of the high expectations.
It was also the only option for the fans last year, as the new Bond film was postponed. But now that production has started on a new film, it's no surprise to learn that another video game based on the legendary spy is in the works. Bond's license holder, MGM, has been involved in bankruptcy issues but now, the new movie is confirmed for November 9, 2012 and in addition: "Yet another James Bond videogame, which also had been held up because of uncertainty, recently got the go-ahead." We assume the interactive adventure will be out around the same time as the movie, but the report didn't include an estimated launch date. Recently, we've seen rumors that studio Raven Software was working on a new Bond title, and it would revolve around stealth, but that hasn't been confirmed as of yet. We hope it's true, though; Bond definitely needs a heavy dose of stealth, right?
Well, maybe that's just me. Anyway, I actually went ahead and finished Blood Stone after reviewing it, just because it was decent – albeit flawed – fun. It's worth a play-through for a budget price.
