GoldenEye User Reviews
When it comes to old school games, it's not about whether the fifth generation is considered old school enough to be retro, but about whether you can go back and play them without the need for nostalgia goggles. It goes double for games with a lot of historical importance - Goldeneye basically revolutionized the idea of a first person shooter working on a console by being a very successful and somewhat out of character game on the Nintendo 64. Sure, Turok was first and did garner a good amount of popularity, but nowadays, that game's controls feel more like operating a scalpel with your ass...
Movie-game tie-ins are crap. This is not a fact, but is often treated as such by the majority of the gaming community. Who can blame them when the market gets filled with seemingly no end of rushed products pushed out the door just to cash-in on the latest big thing. Rareware turned this whole concept on its head when it developed a certain game that would become the standard many FPS games to follow would be measured against. It was one of those rare gems; a movie tie-in that was good. Nay, scratch that, a movie tie-in that was and still is amazing.
The ability to step into the shoes of tha...
Challenging yet addicting and well executed first person shooting gameplay, objectives add a twist to the generic FPS games we see today, 3 different difficulty levels which adds to some replay value, really tight controls, mission location designs are all unique whilst being well designed to cater to objectives of the missions, visually pleasing to the eye, human groans sound excellent and realistic, realistic sound effects, pulse pounding soundtrack, multiplayer is well worth playing and adds more to the replay value and the replay value within this game is virtually endless!The bad:
Some choppy frame rates here and there. Multiplayer in terms of customization may seem limited to some, especially those used to Call of Duty 4's style.Summary:
Created in 1997 by Rare, Goldeneye 007 (along with Doom 64, Quake and Turok: Dinosaur Hunter) revolutionized the first person shooter genre by perfecting the shooting + aiming mechanics tried in games before the N64's time, refining the enemy AI so that you can't just quickly kill them without either getting yourself killed/badly wounded or so you actually have to be strategic about how and where to kill without getting yourself in danger, adding in some stealth mechanics so that it's not just "GET IN THERE AND KILL THEM ALL!!!", adding in some objectives to give you something to do rather ...
Try everything!The bad:
I can't quite find anything.Summary:
This game will last you a long, long time. Not just in the sense that you just want to play again to see if you can do better but more because of all the extras like cheats and plus, friends make it all that much funner. 4-player deathmatch FTW!
The art direction here is just good. Everything looks amazing for the time, hell I think it looks awesome by today's standards! Some bland color schemes here and there but that's nothing!
Catchy soundtrack, realistic sound effects...honestly what more could you ask for?
This is how FPS game...
Almost everythingThe bad:
Lack of realism
Graphics (scan Brosnan's face!)
Once upon a time, there was a man named Bond, James Bond. He was owned by an old company named Parker Brothers, an evil little company. He exposed the evil of the company, and was then bought by Rareware, which was the greatest company alive at that time. Then, he was bought by EA, which made only one good Bond game, Nightfire (which I suggest you get (for the PS2)). But enough about Bond's life, let's talk about Rare's lil' creation, GoldenEye.
The first time you play this game, it may not look good. Bond's face looks like it was molded and thrown into a shredder, and glued b...
Excellent graphics [for its time]
Many characters [and some (surprise!) secret ones too]
Only four players, but this is just nitpicking. There wouldn't be a way to have more than four on an N64
This is a game that I have played and beaten over and over again. I remember doing 4 player matches with grenade launchers only on Stack in Multiplayer. I remember this being one of the best multiplayer games ever. The single player is great; plot twists, thrills, frantic encounters and a great story await you! Also, if you beat the game on the 00 Agent difficulty level you unlock the 007 mode, which basically allows you to customize the game to your preferences. You can give enemies 100% accuracy but 0 life or millions of other of combinations. It's the holiday season, find this in the bar...
