However, there are plenty of screenshots of the mod over at ModDB, and the creators of the mod comment that their main aim was "...keeping the original feel for the game that we all know and love... [while] adding new and fun game play features, along with new maps and weapons that will keep the game feeling new." Maybe EA should just bite the bullet and ask Nintendo, Rare, Valve, and the modders nicely to release this, since their recent Bond games still aren't lighting anyone's fire?
