Blood Stone 007 is an original James Bond adventure game -- not directly based on an earlier movie or book -- featuring character portrayals by contemporary film actors including Daniel Craig and Judi Dench. Authored by Bruce Feirstein, a screenwriter for GoldenEye, The World Is Not Enough, and Tomorrow Never Dies, the game's story follows a brave, impetuous Bond through adventures in a series of luxuriously exotic locales, as he struggles to uncover an international conspiracy and defeat a billion-dollar scheme. The game features plot-twists, trickery, and amazing gadgets, in the style of the James Bond novels and films. Keeping with Daniel Craig's depiction of the young agent, however, high-tech devices and meticulous stealth maneuvers often make way for tactical-action gun battles and feats of deadly precision in tense situations.
As the first James Bond game from Project Gotham developer Bizarre Creations, Blood Stone also gives players their share of time behind the wheel, in heady chase sequences and vehicular combat scenes on both land and sea. Alongside the single-player adventure, gamers can compete online in team-based battles designed for up to 16 virtual super-spies and mercenaries. British recording artist Joss Stone is featured in the role of the title's diamond-connoisseur "Bond Girl," and she also performs music for the game.
