The opening screen of the game is a parody of a BBFC Cinema Classification screen seen before every classified film in the UK. This is most obvious where the red-outlined white circle symbol containing the red number '4' (stated to mean the game is suitable for 1-4 players) looks very similar to the BBFC's '12' or '15' certificate. Coincidentally, the UK cinema version of GoldenEye
(1995) (which was slightly cut by the BBFC) was certified '12', and the uncut DVD version released in 2006 was certified '15'. See more
The idle animations for the guards with pistols were not changed from the ones for the guards with automatic, two-handed weapons. Guards with pistols will begin idle animations in the two-handed rifle-holding pose, then will end the animation by coming to rest in that same position, but then snapping back to their original, hands-at-the-sides pose.
