|A NEW GOLDENEYE FOR A NEW BOND The GoldenEye story comes to life once again with an updated single player storyline featuring Daniel Craig as Bond and written by Bruce Feirstein, the screenwriter for the original movie. Surprise enemies covertly or engage in a full on firefight and use Bond’s latest gadget to uncover intel in augmented reality as you relive all the classic GoldenEye movie moments. Infiltrate the dam and destroy the facility; chase Ourumov in the tank through the streets of St. Petersburgh; and investigate the secret jungle base.|
The single player game is & every fun. There's four difficulty levels, and it follows the mission structure Rare made famous. On the lower two difficulty settings only one or two missions are required per level, and they are usually simplistic (like "follow the bad guy" or "get out alive"). The higher two difficulty settings, including classic mode, involve more missions, and while u can finish levels without completing everything, you will be unable to move on with that specific difficulty.
Something old. Something new11/29/2010
I wasn't sure if I should have expected something similar to the original or a whole new take on it, especially after growing up with the original N64 version. It's a healthy update to the original which, with the Wiimote, takes some getting used to. To aim the original, I had to nudge the control stick a bit, now I have to actively hold the remote steady to get a head shot. The story is somewhat engaging, but after knowing the gist of the story from the original, there aren't as many surprises. My thoughts are only based on play through a few of the levels, and not completing the game. I would recommend renting, unless you have a steady stream of friends to play the mulitplayer modes.
eh, you get what you get11/29/2010
you cant expect too much from this game. its basically a remake of the game for N64. don't get me wrong, the game is not the same at all, and quite a bit better than the original, but this game had very little publicity, and was made in a short time to come out and compete with Black Ops. either way, for the price, its worth it, but not much more.
Not even close to the original11/23/2010
The multiplayer is a major disappointment. When the box declares "Bringing multiplayer back to its roots," maybe it should actually do that. Instead, the multiplayer feels like every other Call of Duty clone, just with Bond characters and settings. Big deal. The weapon loadout system is a total let down. I bought this game primarily for the offline split screen multiplayer, expecting something very similar to the N64 version with a few updates (bots, etc.). I'm not satisfied at all.
