Goldeneye nintendo 64 N64 game

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

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.

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

I remember getting this game in 97 and it slowly dawned on me then,that i wasnt playing just a GOOD game.. but playing an excellent game. Ive played 100s of games since then, and sadly goldeneye sunk into my attic..... time passed, blah, blah, blah. then in 2003 I had a new fave...HALO. how better this was than my old fave game GE, yes, time had passed, yes games had evolved and got better(or worse) through technology, but It pained me to say it was a better game... but it was! mmmmm interestingly Ive found out that SOME programmers who worked on GOLDENEYE also worked on Halo. Ive played g.e. again because of this news.... and found GOLDENEYE is the better game, though 8yrs old, Im just gonna say... goldeneye/gameplay 100%/replayability 100%.- and I would like to add that I like all types of games, this is just testament to how good the makers where. I decided not to rave about why the game is so good, they will find it out for themselves like I did!

If you have an N64 and do not have this game you deserve to be publicly flogged. This is simply the best single player game ever, and for those of you who still have friends after staying in to play it, there is the breathtaking multiplayer.
Rare have captured the 007 feel perfectly and incorperated a stealthy element into a first person shoot-em-up, Goldeneye is the first game ever to have done this. Also there are even more oringinal idead like the zoom sight on the sniper rifle and the loud guns attracting guards attentions.
There will be hundreds of copy cat games, and not a single one will match the jawdropping originality or ever be as ground breaking.
If you buy this game make sure you get a couple of days of work first!

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!!!!!!

An excellent game that sticks in your mind long after you have thrown you N64 away. This game is fantastic due to the detail, exciting missions, brilliant multiplayer mode and great sound effects. I remember multiplayers with mates from school and how we spent hours blowing each other up and and battaling it out for victory and generally having great fun! Even just the sound effects in the game are great because of their crisp sound and explosions sounded realistic unlike some modern games. This game should go down in history as one of the (if not, the) best games ever.
