Excerpt: Having reviewed the Wii version of GoldenEye 007, I was somewhat excited to get a chance to review the DS version. The first reason was that the thought of having a portable version of GoldenEye was enticing to say the least. The second reason was that the DS version was developed by n-Space, a developer that knows the ins and outs of the DS architecture as evidenced by Activision’s Call of Duty games over the past few years.
Excerpt: Please put on your nostalgia goggles now. You're going to need them. Activision isn't the first company to try capturing lightning in a bottle by invoking the name of Goldeneye. No one is envious of n-Space's position either. While they're weathered, experienced hands have churned out quite a few DS-bound first-person shooters, a port of a remake of Goldeneye for the Nintendo 64 has to be a daunting task.
Pros: Adapted plot stays true to original, Very cinematic action on DS, Gameplay feels choppy and fragmented, Muddy graphics for any screen smaller than DSi XL's, Wonky multiplayer
Conclusion: GoldenEye 007 is a good DS shooter held back by a few issues. The single player story reaches a little too far and comes up short in some areas as a result, but it's still a good run. The multiplayer on the other hand is incredibly deep and fun...just as long as you can avoid the cheaters and find some good friends to play with.
Excerpt: 007 is back, and it's portable. Nintendo DS and Wii both features a remake of the original title released back in the 90's for the Nintendo 64. The game was an instant classic and brought joy to many many many houses (and bond followers alike), creating a whole group of ...
Excerpt: I am finding myself in a bit of a strange situation, because this review that I write is quite possibly going to be one of the only ones available for this game. Goldeneye 007 on the Nintendo DS is developed by n-Space, who have done great work on previous shooters on the Nintendo DS in the past. However, despite the hype surrounding the Wii title, not a lot of people know too much about the DS iteration of everyone’s favourite reimagining.
Summary: When GoldenEye 007 works it feels like one of the best shooters on DS, but the combat blemishes are frequent enough to become quite maddening. Still, players able to look past occasional hokey weapon damage and pinpoint enemy accuracy will find a lot to like here, especially if they happen to be a fan of Ian Fleming's most famous creation or are just looking for a handheld shooter not named Call of Duty.
Summary: Schon ganze Generationen erlebten die verschiedensten Schauspieler in der Rolle des amerikanischen Casanovas und ständigem Bewahrer unserer Sicherheit. Die Rede ist natürlich von niemand geringerem als James Bond. Ob der neueste Titel namens GoldenEye 007 aus dem Hause Activision dem Ruf der Spielfilme gerecht wird oder ein Gang ins Kino doch besser ist, erfahrt ihr natürlich in unserem Review.
