Imagine, a Hollywood producer got his hands on the game. The result would be similar to what the Cinematic Mod is: a graphics blockbuster, redesigned to the typical game to movie adaption with an orchestral soundtrack and beautiful people everywhere.
The latest version (2013) is a nearly 20GB download plus nearly 50GB install. On top of that it uses this terrible out of place music instead of the original soundtrack, and the new characters look nothing like the originals, this is a problem for a narrative driven game. Sure you can use the default models with the new textures and turn off the music but that seems to be missing the point for an overhaul mod like this. Additionally the new take on mapping is basically just to cram unneccessary details into every corner. More trees, more random tat, it adds nothing artistically and makes the World seem to busy and confused.
