  1. A great game, but it's never going to replace "Goldeneye" or "Perfect Dark." Both games do things bigger and better and more often.
  2. There are only about three really great N64 first-person shooters, and this is one of those three.
  3. 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.

    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."
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. A passable shooter that will please Nintendo-owning fans of the genre, but it won't win any awards for originality, ingenuity or design.

    Doesn't beat "Goldeye" but it beats "Perfect Dark," and it has great graphics, gameplay, gadgets, and cool weapons, but not enough though.

    Everybody loves goldeney, they dont like this. In my opinion this games is exactly the same as Goldeney except for better graphics, gameplay, plot, and the shooting is much more realistic! Expand

    A very good bond game which could have been improved by having more weapons, levels and a bit more excitement.

    Meltdown. Shouldn't be as hard... should have more guns.

    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. Collapse

    With Rare moving on to develop Perfect Dark, EA decided to essentially "clone" the engine and gameplay of Goldeneye 64. The result is a very playable and enjoyable game that captures the Brosnan-era Bond vibe fairly well. However, it never achieves the heights that Goldeneye does. Worth a playthrough for James Bond fans and N64 shooter aficionados but most modern gamers will have little reason to revisit this title. Interesting side-note, EA was working on a higher resolution version of this game for PC and PS2 when the project was abruptly cancelled. Expand

    This game sucks! The gameplay and multiplayer are horrible. "GoldenEye" and "Perfect Dark" are so much better than this piece of trash.
