    Review: GoldenEye 007 Wii

    Review by Ian Knott;

    A couple of weeks back in anticipation of reviewing this game, I pulled out my Nintendo 64 and GoldenEye 007 cartridge and proceeded to play through the game once again from start to finish, just as I had done literally dozens of times in the late ‘90s. It’s funny, not having played it for at least ten years I still knew instantly where each enemy was, what was hiding in each wooden crate and where each enemy was scripted to walk. GoldenEye on the N64 remains a solid FPS experience to this day.

    However, when I plugged the classic console into my 42” LCD TV and switched it on, I actually shuddered at the horrific graphics that sprung up on screen. But then I remembered that the game was designed to be played on the most common TV at the time – the 29” CRT. So off I went to my son’s room and fired up the N64 on the TV it was made for. The difference was astonishing – from there I powered though a couple of hours of retro FPS goodness.

    I’m not going to lie to you – when I booted up Activision’s Wii remake of GoldenEye 007, my initial response was a similar one – “eww”.

    *Shrug* I played a bit of Goldeneye 64 upscaled on a 40"-ish LCD last year and it looked fine to me. I found the controls to be god awful though.

    Opposite for me. I love the controls but thought it looked like poo.

    I used to dual-weild controllers playing 1P Goldeneye. It's actually the first dual-analogue shooter there is, IIRC. It's just that it took two controllers to do so :P

    I'm really enjoying this game. The graphics are average but the gameplay is not - it's a lot of fun. Still a bit suss on Daniel Craig replacing Pierce Brosnan though. It's just too weird after playing the N64 original for so long.

    Why would it be on PC? It's a Nintendo game.

    Besides, there's a HL mod that recreated Goldeneye on PC, I'm sure that's still out there.
