    One can't go without mentioning the fantastic multiplayer mode. Unlike PC shooters, where ambush seems to be the name of the game, GoldenEye concentrates on fast, frantic fun. Everyone can see each other's screen, and radar is provided for additional assistance, so hiding is a virtual impossibility.
  2. Without a doubt, an experience like no other.
  3. This is probably the best game you can get on the Nintendo 64.

    We can say with a clear conscience that Goldeneye 007 is the best single-player first-person game on any system.
  5. Is Goldeneye 007 another great game by Rare, Is 007 the best first-person shooter on any next-generation system... my answer is HELL YEA!
  6. Fans of N64 and PC games used to compare Goldeneye to games such as "Half Life," which is remarkable because Goldeneye was not only older, but running on hardware that was vastly inferior to a $2500 PC.

    Would give it an 11 if I could. This game is one of the most revolutionary games ever made for any system. As you can tell w/ all of the great reviews, playing Goldeneye should go on your 'Things to do before you die' list. If you haven't played, you're missing out. The reason why this is a great game is hard to put your finger on, but I think it's the great story and addicting gameplay which seperates this from the rest. In my opinion, this is the single greatest 1st person shooter game ever. I don't think anything will ever bring it down. Perfect Dark was a decent attempt to reproduce it, but the story was too confusing and wacky. MUST HAVE GOLDENEYE! Expand

    Mr. Koolaid is completely and utterly a waste of genetic material. Goldeneye is the reason that great games like Perfect Dark and Timesplitters exist! The great single player mode, the amazing multiplayer mode. Oh my god, how much countless hours did I play facility with dual RPC-90s and invisibility or throwing knives and invincibility. I miss it so bloody much. Collapse

    Wow! The memories! Best multiplayer. Before Halo & Call of Duty this game was king of the shooters. Of course it's dated now. But still it's fun to play. These were the days. Expand

    The year is 2006 and still to this day I have yet to play a game up to par with goldeneye (rainbow six vegas?). The only game you need for the n64. Graphics are dated by todays standards though gameplay and controls are top notch. Rumor has it this game will be going online through xbox live, hope it's true. Long live the king of fps! Expand

    I spent so much time with this game its insane. I don't even know how many playthroughs and missions and multiplayer and hundreds of hours. All I know is that for me, this game was revolutionary are absolutely brilliant. Don't let ripoffs of the name on inferior titles deceive you...this game was outstanding and a masterpiece. Way ahead of its time. It's assuredly a classic, and I'm glad I can give it the 10 / 10 it undoubtedly deserves. Expand

    What comes as a nice surprise and sticks out like a sore thumb is the game's depth, atmosphere and detail. Well animated characters and intuitive AI, realistic settings and interactive backgrounds sound effects are crisp along with music based on the movie. Ricocheting bullets, the clinky-clonky noise of footsteps just gives this first-person game that feeling of elegance and there is enough content even on 'Agent' difficulty to keep players occupied for a decent amount of time. Overall the game is executed marvelously both single player and multiplayer, it is by far one of the best shooters to grace the generation even to this day leaving players shaken and most definitely stirred.
