Excerpt: Goldeneye was a landmark game in the first person shooter genre, one of those rare games that jumps a genre forward in a single bound. All the hours spent in split-screen death matches, hating your friends who played as Oddjob, and laughing at the paint-ball carnage, Goldeneye was an awesome experience. Now we have Goldeneye: Reloaded, which tries to capture some of the spirit of the original, but also integrate some of the genre’s advancements.
Conclusion: And I'd recommend the game even if just for it's enjoyable Story Mode. Outside of Bond fans, for a casual FPS fanatic, perhaps you may want to skip passed this game and pretend you'd never looked. It's a good single player experience but you're missing nothing if you don't pick Goldeneye: Reloaded up.
Non-gory first-person shooter remake feels like a new game.

Summary: Parents need to know that GoldenEye 007: Reloaded is less gory than most first-person shooters, and receives only a "Teen" rating as a result. There's plenty of gunplay, explosives, and hand-to-hand combat, but no blood when enemies are hit. (However, blood does splatter on the screen when Bond takes damage.) There's some strong language and adult situations, and players might also be exposed to profanity from other players if they play online.
Excerpt: GoldenEye on the Wii was at times great, occasionally a bit ropey, but mostly quite alright . The same is true of Reloaded on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, a graphically enhanced port of the original with revamped multiplayer. The problem is that the FPS market on these consoles is significantly stronger than it is on the Wii, and as such GoldenEye 007 Reloaded resides a considerable way down the pecking order.
Excerpt: GoldenEye 007: Reloaded brings back memories of the beloved Nintendo 64 game console from the mid 1990’s. One of the most memorable games from that console era was the original GoldenEye 007 on the N64. I remember playing for hours and hours with my friends every weekend. Isn’t that what video games are for? Enjoying time with family and friends. Was the new GoldenEye 007: Reloaded for Xbox 360 and PS3 able to capture the same magic as its namesake?
Excerpt: For those of us who sunk more hours than we would want to admit into Goldeneye 007 on the Nintendo 64, the prospect of reliving the experience in HD is an intriguing one. The missions were awesome, the split-screen multiplayer was the best of its era, and the feel of Bond was prevalent throughout. Last year, our appetites were only slightly subdued by the Wii remake. It was a great game on the Wii – there’s no doubt about that.
Excerpt: So – how does Goldeneye 007: Reloaded on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 hold up – not only to the standards of the original, but also to the standards of modern gaming?
