Product Description

Amazon.co.uk Review

GoldenEye 007 has been a huge success for Rareware, and it's easy to see why. More than a simple movie translation, this has earned its top-seller status on its own. Fans of Doom and Quake will recognise the first-person shooter perspective, but there the similarity ends. James Bond 007 has too much style to simply blast everything in sight and move to the next level. No, as 007, the player has a variety of different missions to perform, each with its own specific objectives. Each mission follows the film closely, and so Bond must use stealth and cunning as much as brute force. But if you see a Kalashnikov rifle lying around, by all means pick it up.

Controls are easy to master, which is impressive considering the variety of actions the onscreen hero can perform. Bond can run and walk at variable speeds, duck, pivot, hide, attach mines to enemy helicopters, block doors from opening, and more. The optional auto-aim feature is especially nice. Of course, James Bond is proficient in a wide variety of weapons. You get to use them all, from the trusty Walther PPK (with silencer) to double sets of full-auto machine guns.

The game's faithful tribute to the Bond legacy includes briefing dossiers on each mission, complete with wisecracks from Q and flirtatious comments from Miss Moneypenny. And the 3-D representation of locations and characters from the movie is very impressive.

One of the distinguishing features of the game is the outstanding artificial intelligence of the enemies. When attacked, squads will rush to hit the alarm. If they make it, reinforcements come running. Enemy soldiers respond to being shot or blown up with chilling realism. According to Rareware, there are over 30 different animation routines that come into play, depending on where the soldier is hit. For those who prefer the challenge of human opponents, there are six clever multiplayer modes where up to four players can shoot it out, as teams or solo agents.

With excellent gameplay, intelligence, and style, GoldenEye 007 is a first-person shooter that'll keep you coming back for more. --Jeanne Uy

    Pros:
  • Built-in save capability for up to four players
  • Auto-aim feature helps novice players feel like a sharpshooter
  • Rich, complex gameworld filled with detail and variety
  • Great bonus missions
    Cons:
  • Sometimes cinematic scenes for fulfilling mission objectives are a bit anticlimactic

Manufacturer's Description

GoldenEye 007 brings the world's most famous secret agent, James Bond, to life on the Nintendo 64--complete with license to kill. Using the full power of the Nintendo 64, GoldenEye 007 puts you right into 007's tux and bow tie in a first-person action spectacular. But there is more to it than just blowing away bad guys--you will have to accomplish a variety of espionage objectives, like planting covert modems, copying top secret documents and diverting the destructive course of the rogue GoldenEye satellite system.

GoldenEye 007 puts would-be double "O" operatives through the paces in 20 challenging missions, each with three different difficulty levels. With each difficulty level, the intelligence of your opponents increases and the complexity and number of objectives grows. Following and expanding on the story line of the hit movie, GoldenEye 007's missions span the globe; from a secret base in arctic Russia to the a giant satellite antenna cradle suspended over the steaming jungles of Cuba.

While the actual game's budget is of course, Top Secret, Nintendo have spared no expense in creating one of the most immersive gaming experiences ever. Almost two years in the making, the game is worth the wait. To capture the atmosphere of the movie, the game's developers visited the movie sets several times during production to gather research materials. The designers used photographs, movie footage and actual blueprints of the sets to create the complex level layouts. The result is one of the most realistic 3-D, first-person games ever. GoldenEye adds an unbeatable license to thrill.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a game! 3 Dec 2005
This is probably my favourite game of all time, I played it for hours on end until I eventually finished it on every level and got all the cheats (which took ages but I enjoyed every minute).
If you have seen the film, the first thing you will notice is how close to that the game is. Rare did a great job on this game and I think Goldeneye was a major reason for most people to buy their N64 in the first place.
The only down side is that it now looks a little dated and slightly blocky, but that is understandable as it is about 8 years old now. That said, for the time it was made IT IS BRILLIANT!!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars best fps ever 22 July 2003
the year is 1997 little did we know that when goldeneye came out it would change the way we looked at fps' for ever.
lets get the negatives outta the way first.the graphics do look a little dated,and there are no mind-blowing fmv's but what you do have is one hell of a game.
the single player is a mighty challenge and once you have completed it you have to complete it on hard and normal to unlock 2 bonus levels.the first level is stupidly easy but by level 4 you'll be struggling,but not in a bad 'cos the gameplay is so smooth and fluid you cant help but enjoy it.
in multiplayer its the king,up to 4 player using game levels and made up arenas.over 30 characters to unlock.
graphics-7
sound-8
gameplay-10
longitivetly-10
overall-10

5.0 out of 5 stars Unbeatable 21 Jun 2005
These days the gaming industry is plagued with first person shooters, the good, the amazing and the darn right shameful. For me Goldeneye is the game that inspired many others in its path, but still remains the best why is this? Well for a start its original, theres no flying planes or anything fancy like newer FPS its to the point bond action. The levels are fantastic mixing a vairety of stupid and challging CPU openants with objectives scattered accross the level. Take a look at the Timesplitters series for example, yes perhaps the multiplayer is one of the best on the newer consoles but the single player has always been at fault. No game will match Goldeneyes novelty, the cheats are fantastic much fun can be had with these, to make it even more rewarding you have to earn the cheats by doing the level in a certain way, although if you look hard enough you can find the codes. And multiplayer, im creaming my panties right now thinking about it, running around Russian archives against other plays blowing the hell out of anything that moves with a rocket launcher. There is so much to do, 3 levels of user difficulty, secret leves to unlock and other hidden modes, the levels have a spice of replayablitly to them, you can go back whenever you like select a level explore and just have fun, afterall thats what games are for right? In my view the N64 is the best console you can find, it may not have DVD or anything but who gives a crap we bought the nintendo becuase we want to play games and have fun, enough of these complicated long-winded games VIVA LA N64!

5.0 out of 5 stars I want my childhood back......just kidding! 6 Dec 2009
By G. RICE
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Like many people my age (21) I have countless fond memories of playing GoldenEye deathmatches on the N64 as a kid. Its strange, because in someways this really was like the game of an entire generation. Its amazing, if the conversation ever turns to games, just how many people remember Goldeneye 007, and feedback is almost always, unanimously positive. This was the N64's equivelant of Halo, its ultimate killer-app.

Feeling nostalgic, I recently purchased an N64 console and GoldenEye. I hadn't played it in a very long time, and was concerned it might be somewhat disappointing, given the massive advancements in First-person Shooters that have taken place since. Could it still cut it, compared to games like Halo 3:ODST or Modern Warfare 2? Of course I needn't have worried, as it still felt as fresh and exciting as it did on its release, some 12 years ago. This is GoldenEye's biggest strength; it is truly timeless. Sure, the graphics may look dated, but if I'm perfectly honest, they're not exactly unbearable, and this is the ONLY real area where GoldenEye is found wanting. The gameplay, the soundtrack, the vast selection of weapons, the diverse locations, and of course, the groundbreaking multi-player mode, are all still outstanding, and can still compete with even the most recent releases. GoldenEye formed the original template for the modern console shooter. When people talk about the true landmark releases of the genre, this is right up there. Its influence is everywhere and numerous games released since, owe it a huge debt.

So what makes this game so enjoyable? Simple. Its really addictive. GoldenEye's formula is straight-forward, but brilliantly executed. The missions all revolve around around the scenes of the film. The locations are extremely varied and diverse.

5.0 out of 5 stars Like everyone else, I have my happy memories 27 April 2008
By Picard TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I have absolutely little to say that hasn't already been covered. But for those who want the most concise review possible...

- It's based "very" authentically around the hit 007 film Goldeneye.
- Each level is based around a certain part of the film.
- The graphics for the time were ground-breaking.
- It's been voted numerous times as The best multi-player game ever; something you can only truly discover after playing it.
- The replay value is excellent
- Plenty of cheats to unlock amongst many difficulty levels.

My own memories surround the multi-player death matches to which we would all insanely use our own tactics to gang up against other mates. Perhaps the reason this game stands out is because its so un-complex. In the same way that Mario Kart 64 had simple controls and arena's for Multi-player, Goldeneye follows in a similar trend.

I could go on forever - but i'm not! I'm just hoping to god this comes out for the Wii Virtual Console soon!
