Excerpt: As far as FPS titles go, EA’s GoldenEye: Rogue Agent is the first to hit Nintendo’s DS system. In case you weren’t aware, this isn’t a sequel to Rare’s stunning N64 GoldenEye , rather a whole new game, by a whole new development team ‘ and my, does it show. The story (as if you really needed one) revolves around you, the titular Rogue Agent , who has turned evil and been thrown out of MI6 since the infamous Dr. No shot him in the eye during his last gun-battle.
Summary: As the DS’ first 007 adventure — and the only first-person shooter available on Nintendo’s new handheld — GoldenEye: Rogue Agent is sure to shift thousands of copies before another trigger-happy blaster steals its thunder. But if you’re looking for a Bond game as slick as its N64 namesake, this isn’t it.
Excerpt: A certain degree of the Nintendo 64’s mainstream success can be pinned on one game – GoldenEye 007 . The game was the definitive multiplayer experience of the 32/64-bit era, and set several precedents for all other console-based first person shooters to follow for years to come. While I was a marketing student, I’d hear day after day about the importance of brand names and the other associated hot air.
