BLOOD STONE 007 (M)
PC/PS3/Xbox 360, $89.95/$99.95
★★ THIS generic James Bond action game mixes thirdperson gunplay with driving sequences but fails to excite. Players will travel from Athens and Monaco to Bangkok and Istanbul, following a story of biochemical weapons and international conspiracy. Unfortunately, environments are drab, the cover-based gameplay is uninspired and Bond’s ‘‘mark and execute’’style ability is superfluous. Out now.
