We can't all find time to appreciate the great reviews here at Bitmob, so it's the job of the Reviews Spotlight to bring those overlooked articles to you, the willing audience. This week, we explore the politically charged world of James Bond, compare notes on Knights in the Nightmare, and prepare to forgive Spider-Man.


Blood Stone: An Inch from Greatness
By Kyle Russel
Critics are divided on the subject of James Bond 007: Blood Stone, the 24th installment in a long-lived dynasty of Bond games. Thus far, review scores range from the abysmally low to the impressively high. Inspired by the array of responses to Blood Stone, Kyle is determined to get to the bottom of all this.

Granted, Blood Stone boasts the acting talent of Daniel Craig and may even encourage nostalgia via a couple familiar bars from the Bond theme music, but does the game possess the substance all Bond fans crave?

007 Blood Stone Review
By Nicholas Schwinger
Nicholas' review is proof that the recent release of GoldenEye for the Wii hasn't completely stolen the limelight from Blood Stone. A fan of the films, this Bitmobber intends to explore the quality of Blood Stone in comparison to the films.

Emblematic of a Bond tale, Blood Stone takes players as far as Istanbul, Bangkok, and Athens. But are a couple of characteristically glamorous locales enough to convince a fan to pick up this title? Considering the multiplicity of complaints made by critics, probably not.

 

Knights in the Nightmare PSP Impressions
By Suriel Vasquez
Sometime last year, Suriel fell in love with Knights in the Nightmare, a strategy-RPG developed in concert by Atlus and Sting Entertainment. The hook: an intriguing combination of constant enemy fire, strategy development, and the threat of permadeath.

But Suriel played the game on the Nintendo DS, whereas the recently released port landed on the PSP. After expressing sincere doubts of the PSP port's quality, Suriel is prepared to render his verdict.


Late Bird Review: Spider-Man Shattered Dimensions
By Ariel Fiest

Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions

At this point, Spider-Man's reputation among gamers is a relatively poor one. Movie-licensed game after movie-licensed game has forced us to give the web-slinging crusader the cold shoulder each time he and his producers attempt to dump more boorish content on us.

Can Shattered Dimensions redeem Spidey of his past failures? Let's hope so!
