Developers have retreated from the James Bond property, a sad state of affairs for what was once the gold standard of licensed video game adaptations.
You'd think that a developer would release a 007 game more akin to a stealth franchise like Hitman by now to play up on Bond's espionage

I can remember more than a decade ago, the Goldeneye-esque shooters were fairly popular. Unfornately, Goldeneye-esque shouters seemed to die out after 2005, with the polarizing PDZ having a good online population for a few years. Conversely, the extremely content rich and well designed Timesplitters: Future Perfect underperformed in sales. As for bonds games, I haven't played one since 007 Nightfire (a personal favourite). I personally, think if 007 games (and Pefect Dark games) were to return, the titles should take influence from Deus Ex. With levels designed to allow the players to either play stealthy, uses gadgets or just shoot up the place.
I like a good bond game
