Perfect

Amazing

Of course it's not going to be the same as the n64 version. But you do get to see old maps and new levels. Multiplayer isn't the same, but it's ok. Overall I just consider it a rent, but it's amazing.

RELIVING THE "GOOD" OLD DAYS!

This title is decent if you played the original 007 Golden-eye for the N64 and you want to relive the Single Player with updated graphics and some new game play mechanics. The Multiplayer, however, is terrible. The graphics from the original game are better than those of the multiplayer engine and the gameplay was worse. I was seriously upset with this game and offended at the hack job that was done to THE game that got me started on gaming and specifically Multiplayer Competitive gaming. I can only give this game a 4 because of the single player and even that is stretching it...

A Decent Rental, Don't Pay $60+ For it

What you get with Reloaded is a re imagining of not only the original N64 Game but the original Goldeneye Film. However, this 5-6 Hour FPS (to me) comes off as slightly 'Me Too'. The running joke was that this game was Call of Duty with a James Bond twist and that couldn't be any more accurate. The default control scheme is eerily similar. A slow motion breach, vaulting over cover, and some less than stellar quick time events, this could have been called COD: 007 (just don't expect anything memorable). I would say the only difference is that stealth is really encouraged here (though often times not required).

Enemy AI is dodgy at best. Often times, enemies will literally run towards you in an attempt to find cover never realizing that they're exposing themselves to gunfire. I would say the challenge with this game isn't necessarily enemy intelligence but being overwhelmed by several baddies. Of course, enemies spawn until you trip that magical wire on a map that forces the game to stop vomiting bullet bait which can be somewhat problematic in a later level of the game where cover is sparse.

For Bond fans, the story has been updated accordingly while retaining the core of what made Goldeneye a great film. If you go into this game knowing that it's a slightly different take on the '95 film, you'll be all the better for it. If you walk in expecting an update to the original N64 game, change your expectations quick.

Graphics are a step up from the Wii version (running at 60 FPS) however there was some noticeable pop up and inconsistent textures. Character models looked beautiful but the environments were rather drab at times.

I had a chance to play MI6 Ops (this game's take on MW's spec ops mode) and the AI was considerably dumber than the single player campaign for some bizarre reason. Multiplayer was certainly fun but suffers from lag often and some weapons didn't feel balanced enough.

It's worth a rental, definitely. Anything beyond that? Probably n
