    Like most people who picked up this game on DS, I played the N64 version when it came out and defended it to the death in subsequent years until I revisited it and my memories of playing such a chunky looking game were shot down like my little brother after refusing to use anything but the PPK.

    The problem with this game is the fact it does play on nostalgia, but it doesn't hold up that

    The problem with this game is the fact it does play on nostalgia, but it doesn't hold up that well. With poor controls, a weird aiming mechanic, poor weapons and chunky graphics, it's really hard to pinpoint where the game really falls down, except for just labelling it "crap." There's a reason

    The story, once it gets going is pretty well the same as the movie, and it is pretty faithful, but the controls and the DS's limitations and tendency to sacrifice graphics for larger games pretty much compromises this game to the point that on a day when I'm feeling generous, I feel that this game might be mediocre. Today is not one of those days.

    It´s Like the game from the N64 with different controls but checking the small amount of shooters on the DS you can definetly be sure that this is one that has a big amount of nostalgia and fun

    A good game, though this is not a watered down version of the (better) Wii game. In fact all the levels are different, as is the kill count you go through. This highlights the game's major problem. In the Wii game you sneak around, kill a fair amount of people and that's it. In this game, the amount of enemy soldiers(that all look exactly the same) you have to murder to continue is crazy.A good game, though this is not a watered down version of the (better) Wii game.

The controls are very good and suit the game well, but there are a few annoying stylus involved things that you have to go though, such as sliding a card into a card key thing and moving some rubble out the way which are just mundane. There is one level, which is near torture, it has some motion sensors that go off every time you go near them. It will take you literally years to get through it and by that time you'll be bald and have way to suicide. Overall, faults aside, this is probably the best FPS on the ds, just because of the brilliant controls and game play. A good game. Collapse

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Fun and hard at the same time. Everyone is debating neither if this game will blow or be the next replacement for the N64. Mostly everything has changed, the levels, the characters, etc. The plot is the same thing as the movie just going on and shooting bad guys that are in your way and trying to find out who controls the Janus Group. You take control of James Bond, 007 which everyone knows in most of his movies and games but except you don't play as Pierce Brosnan, you play as Daniel Craig who speaks so fast people wanna just repeat the mission. The Gamplay is nice and sluggish. The good part about it is you get to replay those moments again from the Dam all the way to the Cradle. The controls on the other hand makes your hand fall asleep because of the D-Pad you have to pause the game every 30 minutes or so and take a 5 minute break. The shooting in the game is something you have to get used to, It would be better on if you fired from the hip because aiming down the sight brings the camera all over the place. The graphics just your basic DS version, people with funny looking faces and the level design not that bad just trying to be like the N64 version but longer. The Multiplayer is good and brings back the way how you want to play with modes such as Licence To Kill and You Only Live Twice brings back the moment, No wonder why the tagline says bring you friends back, But on the other hand with online is something you would be crying for because if you were the one being aimed at and can't get a shot on the other player then you would most likely just play Story Mode, you walk slow and trying to aim someone is some what impossible. In Short, Good Luck Playing. The game would stand up for a couple of months and end up being used for a cheap price. You should buy this game if you played the N64 and see whats new. Expand

    Immersive. Fun. Game mechanics are well-implemented. AWESOME level design. Best shooter on the DS. This review is based on the first few levels of single player. Multifplayer untested.

    Amounts to nothing more than walking along a featureless corridor while somebody tells you an abridged version of the GoldeneEye plot. [Christmas 2010, p.72]

    When GoldenEye 007 works it feels like one of the best shooters on DS, but the combat blemishes are frequent enough to become quite maddening.

    It's a fair good shooter, with an interesting plot and nice graphics. Yet, if you're an FPS fan, you should know the DS offers some masterpieces in the genre, as Dementium 1 and 2 and the Call of Duty saga, which you should definitely choose over this one.
