Excerpt: We’ve been asking for it since the 90’s. We’ve waited and waited. We’ve reminisced about the original. And now, we finally have what we’ve been waiting for: a legitimate remake of the Nintendo 64 classic, GoldenEye 007. So was it worth the wait?
Excerpt: Mario Super Sluggers tries to take the Mario chaotic sports concept to baseball. Sadly this Wii game strikes out. The items, and Mario sports game play does not translate well into baseball. Making matters worse, Mario Super Sluggers is very light on baseball.
Summary: The biggest shame about " GoldenEye 007 " is that is that it’s on the Wii. Graphically, it looks great, and wouldn’t take too much to upgrade it to the more powerful consoles. But the control schemes are poor, the online is let down by the hardware, and in general, you feel that the game is held...
Excerpt: It's the Blonde Bond argument all over again. I don't think there's any doubt that one of the best four-player games of all time is GoldenEye 007 for N64.

Conclusion: As I said at the top, this is not a port of the N64 classic. If you get Goldeneye 007 looking to play the 1997 game with updated graphics you will be disappointed. Those looking for a good FPS to play on the Wii (and let’s be honest, there aren’t many) will find plenty to enjoy with this game.
Conclusion: In an industry arguably over populated with first person shooters, it was always going to be tough for this revamp to make the same mark on the first person genre that the original did 13 years ago.
