This review is from: GoldenEye: Rogue Agent (Xbox) (Video Game)
This game does have a very solid story line which i for one have been waiting forever to come across. The idea of two different Bond film villains and their minions in all out conflict...is superb. The MI6 Agent who lost his eye becomes reckless and leaves MI6 to seek revenge. He joins Goldfingers organisasion and even gains a replacement for his human eye...the 'Golden Eye'. A robot eye designed to aid you in seeking your revenge. It can see enemies lurking behind objects, it can tamper with electrical equipment etc...the idea is sheer genious. The range of weapons and the ability to choose which hand to pick up a weapon and use it is great. It brings an almost endless choice of weapon combinations. The fact that you permanently have a gun either in your hand or in your holster which never runs out of ammo is also brilliant. These are the ideas everyone thinks of whilst playing games such as the original Goldeneye but never before have we seen these ideas put to good use. People who complain about this game for reasons such as; you cant jump, your character is mildy slow in turning round to shoot enemies behind you....thats not what these games are about! You couldn't jump in the original Goldeneye and there were many points where James Bond just wouldn't turn around fast enough to kill an enemy...but it still became a classic.
If someone has put you off this game by telling you how bad it is, i think you should still give it a go. I have heard so many people describe how bad this game was...how much of a dissappointment it was...how it should be forgotten and never mentioned again, but i went ahead and bought it and i'm so glad i did. The multi-player is also superb. with a wide choice of inspiring levels.
