GoldenEye Reloaded feels like a breath of fresh air for those of us who grew up on GoldenEye for the Nintendo 64. The game was ported to the Wii last year, recasting Daniel Craig in Pierce Brosnan's role, but playing on the Wiimote was awful. Using the Classic Controller even didn't do it justice, it just felt... off.
With the game Reloaded to the 360 and PS3, we now have a chance to play the game as it was originally intended. Minor graphical updates, more online modes and achievements and trophies make it worth exploring, but not buying.
i only played the demo on the xbox360 and it didn't look that good at all. the whole presentation is antiquated and totally outclassed by any modern games. the game play is just like that of a classic Call of Duty (1+2). not that it's bad, but it gave me a daja vu feeling-seen that done that. And a Bond game definitively shouldn't be a clone of COD. it has such a rich history and style of it's own to draw upon. too bad it seems that Activsion only wanted to make money off Bond fans instead of giving the franchise an imaginative overhaul. maybe it's time for another company to take it over and induce the much need imagination into the series. BioWare (Mass Effect 2 ) or UbiSoft (Splinter Cell Conviction) comes to mind. at the end, this reimage didn't grab my interest, even-thought i'm a huge Bond fan and was very excited when it came out on the xbox360. now, i had never played the original, so i can't compared the 2. but if you look at this as a new game (which it's supposed to be-with a new Bond and updated story) than, it can't seem to hold it's own. none the last, i was a bit disappointed and won't be spending my time on this outdated update. maybe i'll change my opinion after i played the whole game.

You know what just stop making this series if you're not going to put any effort into it. Do you know what other games you are up against. I mean really!! This game looks like it was made for the original Xbox.
