whell lets start with the fact i love the original goldeneye this one however is goodish is the best way i can describe this game the level design makes me nostalgic, they get the point across where you are compared to the original but also bring new flavor... but the rest of the game is nothing like the original and almost srays from the movie at points. but all that aside its still fun for a little while
As a fan of the original N64 Goldeneye, I couldn't resist checking this one out.
The campaign mode was a blast. All the levels I loved are there, but updated and improved to match today's standard. AI and weapons are also more modern and realistic. What you end up with is more of a dark, gritty tribute to the original game, rather than a remake.
That being said, the multiplayer just didn't do it for me. Local multiplayer is moot, because the levels are much more expansive. So without the ability to add bots, you end up circling each other for an uncomfortably long while, and only landing a few kills.
For online multiplayer, fans of the shooter genre should probably just stick to larger franchises that have already mastered online play.
Great (albeit short) campaign though. Definitely a good one to rent.
