I loved the old Goldeneye game for N64. Probably my favorite old FPS game. This? This was total cr@p. First of all, why is Daniel Craig in it? Pierce Brosnan was Goldeneye 007, and he still should be. Second, the game itself was cr@p. Gameplay was ridiculous, the difficulty curve was out the window, and overall, it is just a bad game. I would not recommend it to anyone, except your worst enemy.
I actually gave this game a one because I still don't understand that in this day and age a gaming company would be lazy enough to make bodies disappear after being shot. I couldn't get into it for this simple fact, and sent the game back the same day
This is probably the worst butchering of one of the best games of its time that a person could ever imagine. The only similarities in this game that even remotely resemble the original Goldeneye are the names of the characters. There are a few moments where you might think, oh I remember a level kinda like this, but that's where the similarity ends. You can get everything you need in the gameplay by playing any recent Call of Duty title. Not only was the story severely skewed away from that of its predecessor but also lent no chance of success by the "i'm doing this to get paid" voice acting on top of anti-climactic cut scenes that make laughable attempts to use botched dialogue from the movie in order to make it slightly more relate-able. On top of that, the only "gadget" bond uses throughout the entire game is his cell phone which might as well be adding insult to injury in this altogether farce of a Bond experience. No wonder it can be found in the 5 dollar bin at game stop barely a year from its release date. If you have any fond feelings of the original Goldeneye or the 007 franchise in general, avoid this game AT ALL COSTS. You'll be doing yourself a favor.
