GoldenEye 007 Wii ReviewPosted on 2010-11-11 11:20:52 by Thomas De Maesschalck
A little over thirteen years ago a development studio named Rare came out of the shadows and produced what is still regarded as one of the greatest games of all time. That game is of course GoldenEye on the N64. For years gamers have clamored for more, either in a remake format or sequel and every so often something comes up to rekindle the interest in the series. However, what we have in this game is not what we expected. It is not a sequel, nor is it a remake. Instead it’s a re-imagining of the original game with a few things added that would not have been possible in 1997. Whether it will be as successful as its predecessor is unknown, but what is known is that it is a very good game.
For those who have never played the game or seen the film, GoldenEye was the first film where Pierce Brosnan played James Bond. And this is where we see the first change since the original. The current Bond, Daniel Craig plays James in the Wii version and his demeanor and attitude are different and do change the game.
