Conclusion: Altogether, I was pleased with the game. It immediately jumps to the top of the Move pile and all of the small features add up into an impressive amount of content. It could have used a bit more polish but if you're a fan of 007 you can't do much better.
Conclusion: Perhaps I'm biased because I loved the original so much, but I really think that Goldeneye Reloaded does a bang-up job of updating the game for the 21st century. No, the graphics aren't going to wow anyone, but the mechanics are so tight and satisfying that it shouldn't matter.
Summary: Bond, James Bond. The most famous spy in the history of the genre. A character who has been immortalized in over twenty films, many books, and an increasing amount of video games. In the past three gaming generations, countless Bond games have come and gone.
Summary: Keep your eye on this golden resurrection of a beloved N64 classic.
Pros: Excellent and satisfying shooting and stealth action; fantastic presentation puts you in Bond's shoes; superb lag free multiplayer; outstanding control, especially with the move on the PS3; great variety in gameplay; new Mi-6 ops levels are challenging and fun.
Cons: Even with an HD update, the game can't compete graphically with other titles on the market, especially in split screen matches; unskippable cutscenes make replaying levels a headache; the multiplayer servers aren't very crowded and suffer from connection problems.
Summary: Last year, James Bond returned to videogames in both GoldenEye 007 for the Wii and Blood Stone for the PS3 and 360. In a change from the standard outcome when a franchise hits multiple platforms, the Wii game was the one that was more polished and more fun to play.
Excerpt: With the success of last year’s GoldenEye for the Wii, Activision and Eurocom have gone back to the drawing board to deliver a version for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Does this remake of a remake have enough firepower for HD systems or is Reloaded tantamount to playing with the safety on?
Excerpt: Although I started off as a PC gamer, I'm now a console convert. However even when GoldenEye 007 was released on the Nintendo 64 so many years ago, I actually thought this game was a pretty average first person shooter, especially considering what was available on the PC at that time.
Excerpt: Last year Activision released GoldenEye 007 for the Nintendo Wii. The game was a reboot of the original N64 game, but with modern graphics and some new plot twists. It was a good game, but its commercial success was somewhat hampered given it was only released on the Wii.
