The N64 is not enough

Ah, GoldenEye 007.A remarkable game on the ol’ Nintendo 64, no doubt about it. Countless hours of planting proximity mines in Basement and Facility for your friends to run into, scream and punch you on the arm is enough to earn a hall of fame spot in...

Awesome. I've played the original a bit and it was a blast. I just hope they can retain the feel of the classic and not change it up too much.

Do you know how epic it would be if you could get a cheat that made all the characters dance 'Get Down'. Cookies for the reference.

I'd be lying if I said I had any faith that this games sales will rely on anything besides nostalgia.



Rally said:

Am I going to have to stop playing my 360 in order to play this game?



Azikira said:

This game is incredible! I was expecting a half-assed remake that would have slight nostalgia, but I was pleasantly suprised. The Graphics are astounding, the controls top-notch, and the Multiplayer is by far the best Wii has to offer (for shooters anyways).
I would rate this game a 9.6, and I think it deserves to be purchased by anyone itching for an amazing wii game!! :3

Played the game just until the for last level. Although the game makes a strong start, it's nearing perfection towards the end (in NL terms: it starts as an eight, and ends as a definite nine plus). It is very solid made: the game has visuals and controls you stopped hoping to see on your Wii. About the story, i can't figure it out (it has something to do with evil Russians), but the game contains entertaining point of view scenes to go from one level to another. Gameplay wise, it sometimes literally takes your breath away, especially when you are urged to escape from a bunker or complex. Happily for the game, this happens a lot (you'll probably end up firing from the hip while screaming at your screen) The AI is very well executed, except for 'enemy professors' that are quasi interesting standing around by some sort of machine or computer just for your fun to sneak up on them (and shoot them in the back of their heads, that is). I'm not getting into the multiplayer mode, but this is what makes the game last for a long time. So if you find this game anywhere at a reasonable price, don't hesitate to buy. You'll like it.
