Goldfinger is locked in a ruthless war against his archenemy, the brilliant scientist Dr. No. The prize is control of the world's greatest criminal organization. A brutal encounter with Dr. No costs the player an eye, but Goldfinger's technicians replace it with a gold-hued, synthetic eye, earning the player the name 'GoldenEye'. Players have the ability to customize and upgrade their villain persona and wreak havoc as they make their unrelenting rise through the ranks. Players will cross paths with such legendary allies and enemies as Oddjob, Scaramanga, Xenia Onatopp, and, of course, Pussy Galore on globe-spanning missions of vengeance and demolition. Players will travel to famous and original Bond locations from the mountains of Switzerland to the streets of Hong Kong and from Fort Knox to Dr. No's Crab Key lair in the Caribbean. Enemies will react intelligently in combat situations and use the environment to their advantage for intense and unpredictable shootouts. [Electronic Arts] Expand

  1. This is about as close as any shooter's come to replicating the action-movie experience, with plenty of toys to play with and a great techno soundtrack.

    Rogue Agent had the premise to be a great action title, playing the villain but it isn't. Rogue Agent is an average FPS, with an uninspiring single player, with decent multiplayer.
  3. This is a totally new and different game (notice the capital "E' in Eye), and to that I say thank God, because why make a sequel to an already perfect game (especially since an entirely different developer and publisher created it (Nintendo/Rare) almost 8 years ago).
  4. The single player campaign of Rogue Agent leaves a lot to be desired, if you were thinking about buying this game for the story mode, do yourself a favor and ditch that idea.

    Unfortunately, slick powers, moderately competent A.I., and amusing deathtraps can't save Rogue Agent from being bland, linear, and repetitive - it tends to give too much of the mediocre and not enough of the awesome. [Feb 2005, p.88]
  6. Despite carrying on the legacy of one of the greatest First-Person Shooters of our time, GoldenEye: Rogue Agent fails to match up to the N-64 classic in almost every department... well, as far as a fun factor goes.
  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.

    I found this game to be great. I could not stop enjoying the amazing art and the gun fighting. I must own for everyone.

    Who remembers GOLDEN EYE for N64? well everyone fell in love with that. Now fall in love with this, because it's almost the same.

    The likks are realistic which makes it cool and its an explosive game. Best game I ever played. Mutiplayer and the campaign is slamming.
