Goldeneye Reloaded is a fun remade game that I can truly say is better than the original. It was updated to the Wii last year and now it's on the Play Station 3 with HD graphics and it looks just about as good as it gets.
Presentation - The story is fun to just try to go in, shoot a couple guys, perform hand to hand kills, and then shoot some more baddies, but is that it? The story isn't the greatest and is kind of predictably cliche'd. You are agent 007 working against a Russian plot and are joined with agent 006.
Gameplay - The gameplay is solid. Like I said earlier, it's fun to just go in a room and kill a bunch of enemies but seriously; is that it?! The online is pretty fun with the occasional great kills.
The Verdict - Goldeneye Reloaded is a fun remake that could possibly last a while for gameplay but really that's all that makes this game. I give this an 8.0/10
ive never wrote a review for anything in my life but this game was so good i had to tell you. anyone who is a fan of the movie and the original game for nintendo-64 would love it too. the game followed the original storie but everybody looked difrent, (valentine was a skinny dude with tatoos and a scar on his cheek, not a limp and was killed by xenia in the game.) the grafics, gameplay and selection of wepons make it an amazing game. the problem i had was that it was too short but has online multiplayer and ops misions to add to the reson to own it. it is also one of thows games that give you a cutsceen that you think you can walk away from for a minut and then they prompt you to press butons which got me killed a few times which frusterated me because it was a level that i was struggling with. in a nutshell its an awsome game that i would recomend the game to anybody who like shooters and bond.
The campaign was a magnificent reimagining of the classic Goldeneye film storyline for the Craig era. Things are different to ensure sense could be made in the modern day (i.e. all Cold War references are gone), and the alterations all around just felt great. Its as close to a remake of a classic Bond film as we'll ever get for the new rebooted Bondverse, and on top of that, it holds up to the legend of the classic N64 title we all know and love.
The multiplayer, on the other hand, falls short. With the over saturation of big multiplayer FPS titles, this becomes one you should probably pass on. Compared to the handling of mainstays Call of Duty and Battlefield, this game's multiplayer feels clunky and slow, and since its envisioned aorund the concepts of Call of Duty (being an Activision title, itself), you may find yourself confused at times with how it plays.
That said, however, its still a fun worth while game just from its campaign, and FPS and/or Bond fan owes it to themselves to enjoy the wonderful campaign. You may be better off ignoring the multiplayer altogether, but the campaign alone makes this one still worth renting.
