Product description

Product Description

In GoldenEye 2, players will explore the dark side of the Bond underworld, playing an agent who was a candidate for 00 status before being dismissed from MI6 for reckless brutality. Players will join ranks with the legendary super-villain Auric Goldfinger, fighting for control of the world's greatest criminal organisation.

Amazon.co.uk Review

Using the name GoldenEye for this latest 007 game could be one of the most ill-advised choices in marketing history, since it beggars all sorts of unkind comparisons to Rare's seminal N64 title, which to this day remains one of the best games ever made.

The choice of name is all the more puzzling because the game has nothing to do with the film or, save the first person perspective, Rare's magnum opus. In fact the rather unlikely reasoning behind everything is that you are an evil ex-MI6 agent who after a fight with Dr No is given an, err… golden eye by Auric Goldfinger.

The game's premise is such that all of Bond's greatest bad guys are still alive and caught up in a sort of underworld civil war, in which your character seeks to be the real beneficiary. Ignoring such nonsense though, and looking purely at the game, the AI seems quite good and the replacement of Everything or Nothing's "Bond Moments" with scripted "Death Trap" sequences is fairly amusing. Unfortunately though the developers seem to have forgotten that the original game was as much lauded (at least a year before Thief or Metal Gear Solid) for its stealth gameplay as much for its shooting and this element seems total absent from Rogue Agent.

The multiplayer is also unconvincing with no radar and rather sprawling level design. It might turn out all right when it's finished but at the end of the day this is no GoldenEye. -- David Jenkins

I was excited when i heard that this game would be true in spirit to GoldenEye 007 for the Nintendo 64 - which was, at one point in time, the most fun that four people could have together with their clothes on. I was massively disappointed on this count. So, forgetting any link to the N64 GoldenEye, implied or otherwise, how does this game stack up when evaluated on it's own? Pretty poorly. The story, such as it is, is unengaging and hard to swallow - all the Bond villians together getting stuck in at a 'who's the evilest' competition - and doesn't pull you through the game like a story should. The graphics are quite good in places, particularly the character models. The sound is also pretty good, with good music and sound effects - enemy speech is a nice touch, they call out warnings to each other depending on where you're hiding or what weapons you're attempting to waste them with. The enemy AI as a whole isn't bad, they do take cover a lot and gang up on you when appropriate. But the gameplay... oh the gameplay. You move around like you are stuck in quicksand, feet rooted to the floor (you can't even jump!) and even with the control sensitivity cranked up to the max it takes forever to swing round to target your foes. The weapons are alright, with a few interesting ones thrown in, but for the most part i found them unrewarding to use - zoom in for a perfect head-shot and you'll likely empty half a clip before they even think about going down, but run around shooting like you just dropped an iron on your foot and you'll see the occasional enemy drop in one hit due to your uncanny marksmanship. In short i don't think the game rewards any skill you may bother to apply while playing it. The levels can get dull and some of them go on forever.Read more ›

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.

This game is quite good fun in short bursts but I feel like I should be holding a light gun in my hand when playing it instead of a controller. The enemies are numerous and mostly all look the same. It's just a case of blasting away at anything that moves with little or no thought. There is no room for stealth or strategy in this game! The game does handle well and has a nice variety of weapons which you can dual wield.
Graphically the xbox version looks and sounds OK. The multi player levels are big, too big in some cases and this can be frustrating as you seem to spend most of your time running around looking for each other.
If you can only buy one fps on xbox this christmas I would go for Halo2 which also has it's flaws but is far superior to this offering.

Yes, as you probably know, this game has no real relationship to Goldeneye on the N64. It was probably a huge mistake of EA to attach the Goldeneye name to the title, from the start this created an impossible comparison that EA could never really hope to match. This has led to Rogue Agent being cursed by an entire generation of gamers when, in fact, it's a very good game.

It actually has more in common with last year's Perfect Dark Zero and the now standard Halo than Rare's classic Goldeneye. Rogue Agent isn't particularly original but then it doesn't need to be; The level design is competent and entertaining, the enemy AI is excellent and the graphics are nothing amazing but very nice.

This game can be very rewarding if you approach it without any expectations, a pick up and play FPS that is just fun.
