  1. Not only have they taken the 40 year legacy of James Bond way off track, but they have also taken the classic GoldenEye reputation and created a game that the fans were dreading. Not a classic ' not even an average game, GoldenEye: Rogue Agent is just about insulting to everyone in the target demographic.
  2. The game doesn't look great, the AI is poor and the special powers are worthless. Even if you take away these problems you're left with a basic first person shooter that is nothing special.
  3. If a rogue is one who doesn't fit, doesn't mesh, doesn't belong, than GoldenEye: Rogue Agent is aptly named. It's shallow, empty, tedious, rarely involving or interesting. The Bond license, gimmicky shooters, even hitmen are all shown to much better form in many other games.

    A Bond game without Bond just doesn't make sense, especially when the bad-guy gimmick fails miserably.

    We're cataclysmically disappointed that Rogue Agent even exists. Just when it seemed like EA had pulled its socks up and become a real unstoppable force with games to match its resources, we get this ' perhaps the most cynical and cobbled-together excuse for a key release we've ever seen. [Christmas 2004, p.111]

    The amount of recycling involved in the level design here is abominable -- some areas repeat the same pair of linked rooms as many as three times in rapid succession, and the problem gets distinctly worse as the game progresses into its later levels.
  7. Rogue Agent ticks all the boxes on the shooter checklist, but lacks any of the oomph needed to make these worthy of note. Unlike the beautiful set pieces of other Bond games and movies, the levels within are about as exciting as a visit to your local public library.

    A rather simplistic FPS. There really isn't too much to say about this one. Great graphics, good gunplay and great environments. SplitscreenA rather simplistic FPS.
