Goldeneye: Rogue Agent User Reviews

7.8

An underrated game

The good:

Great weapon variety, a fantastic setting, impressive AI features, beautiful cinema sequences, challenging difficulty, varied character design, original eye powers, and a cool codename ("GoldenEye")

The bad:

AI could use improvement, headshots are too easy, the way the story progresses doesn't make sense in some parts, repetitive gameplay

Summary:

While not the ground-breaking game that the original GoldenEye 007 was, GoldenEye: Rogue Agent offers some solid FPS action with a unique twist. I have a soft spot in my heart for this game for reasons that I can't fully understand and feel to this day that it is underrated. But since it seems to be more noted for it's faults than it's good points, I'll begin there: with it's faults.

First off, the gameplay is repetitive to the point of being tedious. Virtually every stage of a mission simply has you entering a room, killing every enemy in the room, then entering the next room and repeating...

7.0

Not as good as you'd expect it to be.

The good:

-Dual-Weilding.
-Goldeneye Powers.
-Multiplayer is fun.
-Some of the actions that you can preform are cool.
-Music is soothing.

The bad:

-Not as good as the other 007 games.
-Levels could've looked better.
-Character reloads slowly.
-Some of the Goldeneye powers are useless.
-Almost no creativity.

Summary:

Introduction
So Goldeneye (the main character) was fired from MI6 because he, accidently, killed Bond in a simulator test, so what if he killed Bond on accident it's not like he won't be more carefull later on. Well anyway this guy gets mad and goes to work with Goldfinger. Goldfinger and Dr. No are in a war against each other and it's up to Goldeneye's to help end this war by defeating Dr. No. Goldeneye's eye was damaged somehow and now Scaramanga is helping him fix it but also adding in Goldeney powers. The rest of the story unfolds as you play.

Rogue Agent

The good:

Get 2 weapons at once.
Weapons look good.
Great Graphics.
The eye thing is useful.

The bad:

Sometimes bland graphics.
Pretty hard.
Your grenades kill you.

Summary:

Difficulty: Medium.

Alright, you're an evil person, so you'd expect to be more bad ass, take hostages and hold some dude and he says "I work for McDonnalds" and you'd be like "McDonnalds? HA! Who do you really work for?" But, it's pretty much the same as the other Goldeneye Games, without the eye thing. You simply have to shoot your way through the bad guys (man, I like that because you are just mashing through human enemies with dual-guns) with either a weak-ass pistol or dual weapons. You also have to do these objectives. Some I like because you blow the crap out of peoples and some I ...

Goldeneye: Rogue Agent

The good:

it is nice to be on the bad side for a change!
also, i like the fact that the missions are longer and are more of a challenge.

The bad:

there are not enough missions on the game for my liking, and the fact that you can only have 2 weapons on you at once is a bit pointless.

Summary:

I think that this game is definitley the best Bond game for a while, at least since Nightfire anyway! And like being on the evil side of the game for once, because i thought that all the other bond games were the same. Also, i like the fact that the missions are a lot more challenging and are longer, but i think they could, and perhaps should, have put more missions in it.
The one criticism that i have with the gameplay on Goldeneye is that you can only have 2 weapons on you at any one time, and i find this stupid when there are so many enemies to kill.

Another bad use of EA's licence's

The good:

Neat dual weapon system.
Erm, that's it, really.

The bad:

Graphics
Cutscene
Story
Multiplayer
Gameplay in general

Summary:

Do not be fooled by the nice advertising. This is another cheap, short, EA cash in on it's licences. There are many bad points, but lets start with the one good.

The innovative dual weapons system, which allows you to hold and fire most guns in either hand, with R1 for the right hand and L1 for the left. On two handed guns, L1 is used for the scope or something similar, while an empty hand can be used to lob near-useless grenades.

Now that that's out of the way, we can concentrate on the flaws. There are nice ideas for graphics, but they're so flat, bland and boring you can't believe it's ...

Why Save The World When You Can Rule It?

The good:

- The in-game graphics are superb.
- The GoldenEye: the perfect gadget.
- All those weapons, and then the combinations available by using two hands... genius.
- Fantastic mission layout and locations.
- Well-voiced: Christopher Lee and Judi Dench are on form.
- Brilliant music that captures the tone of the game well.
- Amazing sound effects.
- Goldfinger, Pussy Galore, Oddjob, Scaramanga, Dr. No, Xenia Onatopp and the new, mysterious GoldenEye.
- The near-perfect multiplayer splitscreen section with classic locations.
- One of the best First-Person Shooters around.
- Very little of James Bond 007 himself: the first James Bond 007 spinoff that works!

The bad:

- Only eight sub-divided missions.
- Cut-scene graphics a little fuzzy.
- Can take a while to get used to the fiddly controls.
- The plot isn't described hugely well.

Summary:

Oh, EA Games... when will you stop causing controversy with your take on the James Bond licence? Sure, so the only people before you were Rareware, but even now, you're proving that you can definately do it better despite the growing number of people moaning about the next generation series of 007 games.

However, things have changed. Now, it's not all about James Bond himself. Now, it's about being bad.

"GoldenEye: Rogue Agent" is one of the most accomplished First-Person Shooters ever to grace the PlayStation2 (or any other console, for that matter). It concerns the story of a secondary char...
