    After yet another failed 007 game and Activision forcing it to be a COD clone (With the exception of Bloodstone but that wasn't really a good 007 game either)... Do you think that it's time to let EA have the franchise back or would they fuck it up just like Activision?

    I for one think EA could bring back Bond to his former glory even if they use the frostbite engine that a lot of their new games are going to be using.
    I think EA could make another classic like Nightfire, Agent Under Fire, From Russia With Love, Everything or Nothing, and so on... At least in EA's Bond games I felt like James Bond instead of a soldier.

    Yes, I do know EA isn't the company they were once but I still think they would at least treat 007 with more respect then Activision has.

    Anywho, what do you you all think?

    EA would just make it a CoD clone with an online pass. So yeah, the 007 franchise is screwed either way as far as licensed games go.

    I think online passes are necessary in this age of piracy, pc games have been doing CD keys for ages and you don't see me complaining but that's a whole other topic.

    Your most likely right but I still have more hope with EA then Activision any day.

    I don't think it would make any difference if EA had the 007 license or not, no Bond game will ever be as good as the original GoldenEye for the N64.

    Online passes only exist so that they can squeeze the balls of second hand stores and their used game sales.

    Not to mention that CD keys are on PC games and not consoles because PC is an open platform that's almost impossible to regulate by hardware manufacturers. Piracy is a completely different game in that field.

    Legends was a good game. The only negatives about it was daniel craig being bond throughout all the old movies, and the skyfall level being dlc.

    What?? I could justify buying it if they got Moore, Dalton, Brosnan, & connery or at least sound-a-likes, but him in all of them? Pass..

    aye but they did the same with Goldeneye! + the DLC was only 100kb(i thought also, that the DLC file was gonna be bigger!).

    Online Passes have nothing to do with pirates. It's to discourage people from buying used.

    I want bond games that aren't first person shooters

    And blood stones actually gotten fairly decent reviews so. I haven't tried it yet myself but id prefer 3rd person romps like that than the cod clones we've been getting

    You are now picturing a James Bond title done in the style of Full Throttle - a point and click adventure game with vehicle sections.

    It didn't matter in Goldeneye, but for the old bond movies, the difference is noticeable.

    Legends is good. But nightfire is my favorite bond FPS.

    There are only two companies I would trust to make a good Bond game, and both of their names have Rock in them.

    Hell, the Hitman series makes better Bond games than actual Bond games.

    Blood Stone seemed okay. Just needed a longer Campaign and a couple gameplay tweaks.

    Blood stones is ok but it's nothing compared to Everything or Nothing, Tomorrow Never Dies, and From Russia With Love.
