    If it's an incredible single-player mode packed full of spy gadgetry, stealthy missions, clever mission objectives and outstanding graphics that you're after, you can't do better than this Eurocom shooter, even if it does fall a little short in the AI and multiplayer departments.
  2. It has an awesome single player experience, decent multiplayer, steady frame rate and an extensive array of weapons and gadgets.

    Doesn't quite surpass the gameplay standard set by the recent "Perfect Dark," but it does have better audio and the graphics are a notch above its predecessor, "GoldenEye."
  4. If there weren't so many better games of the same ilk, I'd definitely recommend this one. But there are, and TWINE isn't at the top of the stack.
  5. Its simplified approach and cool cinematic feel of the single player mode will whisk you away in no time at all.

    (Da Gameplay is) genius' I tell you. 007 is pure magic.
  7. A great game, but it's never going to replace "Goldeneye" or "Perfect Dark." Both games do things bigger and better and more often.
  8. There are only about three really great N64 first-person shooters, and this is one of those three.
  9. The pace of the action is generally heart pounding, and that's a good thing. On the down side, the missions are either too short or too initially implausible.

    If "GoldenEye" was the Sean Connery of Bond games, and "Tomorrow Never Dies" was George Lazenby, then The World Is Not Enough is a likable Roger Moore--showing its age, in it for the money, and prone to bouts of slowdown, but still sporting that old Bond magic.
  11. Eurocom does the amazing by putting out a sequel to Rare's "Goldeneye" that actually lives up to the high standard set for it. What a shame that Rare's own pseudo-sequel, "Perfect Dark," already did the same thing at least twice better.

    An excellent homage to "GoldenEye" -- it doesn't really have anything in the way of new ideas but in some ways it's a more enjoyable single player game than "Perfect Dark."

    TWINE revels in fact that it poaches the concepts pioneered in GoldenEye, and N64 gamers should too, because we haven't had it this good since 1997.

    A well-crafted FPS that will satisfy the majority of bloodbath-seeking N64 fans. Its general entertainment value vaults TWINE into the upper echelon of N64 first-person shooters.

The single player has a MUCH more pronounced story, complete with voiced cutscenes, and follows the movie a bit more closely than the previous game. It introduces alternate fire modes for weapons (like Perfect Dark), as well as several gadgets, and while many of the weapons are not as iconic as Goldeneye's, there is a much better diversity and balance. Where this game really shines is multiplayer, which offers more game modes, weapon sets, and character models than its predecessor, as well as the option for AI bots (which are great for practice or rounding out a 3-player session.

    Once it came out, this replaced playing Golden Eye for me, with it's varied guns and exciting multiplayer- with or without bots. The Once it came out, this replaced playing Golden Eye for me, with it's varied guns and exciting multiplayer- with or without bots. The graphics are also nicely detailed- though it has to be said that FPS have come a long way since this one and that Goldeneye was overall a better game. Still very enjoyable, though. Full Review »

    It's quite a good fps. But for some unknown reason you can't look up or down. I have no clue why they would take that out - it just It's quite a good fps. But for some unknown reason you can't look up or down. I have no clue why they would take that out - it just makes aiming tough. I would say though, if you liked goldeneye, you probably enjoy this one too. Full Review »
