Everyone remembers the blast the original Goldeneye was, at least the should. When this game came out I was leery of a cash in only but, I was wrong. This is a fun game, especially if you have friends. The thing about it, it is Goldeneye but, it's trying to be Goldeneye for 2010 and I think it succeeds.
It has split screen local multi-player, online 8 man multi-player, some different set ups you can use for you character, and you can use a classic controller, GameCube controller, the zapper, or the standard wii controls. The controls have sensitivity settings and are customizable to a degree, making the game fairly suitable to any who plays it and looks for those options.
The game types are fun and reminiscent of the original Goldeneye. My favorite is still just the DM mode but, playing slappers only or golden gun never gets tiring for me either.
The single player is pretty well done. You can either run and gun your way through it, play more like a spy and make your way through the game, or do a combo of both. I haven't finished it yet because I went straight to the multi-player (who wouldn't, it's Goldeneye!) but, what I have played I have enjoyed.
All in all, I'd say if you are a fan of the original then this is a great buy. If you have no idea what I'm referring to then rent it, check it out and see the awesomeness.

if you're a fan of FPS's, James Bond and the Goldeneye franchise, you''ll enjoy this game. It has many classic Bond moments and Call of Duty inspired controlls. But the overall experience can be kind of a disappointment.
Optional control inputs
Good Wii graphics
Distuctable and interactive environments
Framerate can fail on you a little
Story is a bit confusing for newbies of the franchise
levels can get boring or tedious
there are many load times
I didn't find myself playing the difficulty I selected past the first level
