    Just one week since the last Quantum of Solace game video interview hit the net and now another one has been released.

    In this new GameTrailers interview, executive producer of the Activision James Bond game, discusses incorporating the more cinematic elements of the films into their game.

    He says: ‘Of course our game is a first-person, cover combat game, but we also have that extra layer of cinematic feel that we want to bring to life as a movie game and to meet the expectations that gamers have of a James Bond game.’

    ‘I think last week, we just saw the new [film] trailer that they released and we thought “Oh my gosh, that’s exactly like our game. That’s like our scene in that level. That’s like our scene in the other level. We have that.”‘

    ‘You might be sneaking across a ledge and you’ll see Bond in a really dramatic camera angle because there’s a little bit of tension about “OK, am I really going to make it across this?”‘

    Young also briefly previews some of the levels gamers will play through as 007, including an ancient Roman cistern as well as the train to Montenegro from Casino Royale. While may fans will remember this sequence primarily for it’s witty dialogue between Vesper and Bond in the film, here it has been revamped as a full-blown action sequence originating from an earlier draft of the film’s script.
