Head2Head

“Sometimes we pay so much attention to our enemies, we forget to watch our friends as well.” Welcome back for another exciting Head2Head Screenshot Comparison brought to you by Play N Trade Oviedo, FL ! Today we bring you James Bond 007: Blood Stone for the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3. Blood Stone was developed by Bizarre Creations – known best for developing the Project Gotham Racing series on the original Xbox and the Xbox 360. Blood Stone uses the bespoke engine which was first created for the game, “The Club”…remember that one? Neither do we. Anyway, sneak inside this Head2Head to see which version shakes your martini to perfection.

Blood Stone’s environments look surprisingly nice and include the latest rendering techniques the industry has to offer. As seen in our roll-over and slider images, the bespoke engine handles  reflection maps, normal maps, and high resolution textures without a hitch. While both versions had their pluses and minuses in the graphics department, each managed to run at silky smooth frame rate without a hint of screen tearing throughout. On a final note, we decide to skip the full Head2Head analysis, but don’t worry, if enough requests come from our fans we’ll make sure to jump right on it. In the meantime enjoy!

Note: Blood Stone 007 was captured in 720p using HDMI cables for both systems.
