    I suspect this will be one of the first titles to take a price drop, so if this time of the year is really punishing your wallet, you might want to wait, but for those who never got to play GoldenEye on the N64 or even last year on the Wii, you can now finally experience a bit of gaming history, freshly wrapped in a next-gen package that is so challenging, so fun, and so addicting, you might have trouble deciding what to play when all those holiday titles start stacking up.

    Addictive multiplayer will keep you coming back for more, especially with all the different ways to play. Single player has its moments, but some rough edges (invisible walls and less-than-stellar AI) make the whole package suffer.

    GoldenEye 007: Reloaded is a shooter very focused on stealth that manages to carve out its market share with interesting gameplay.

    Much of what it made it great hasn't changed, but the minor extras and improved visuals come at the price of online frustration and gunplay that's undeniably dumbed-down.

    With its moments of intense and fast paced action Goldeneye 007: Reloaded proves to be a well crafted FPS, incapable however of competing with many of the most recent shooters, both in single and multiplayer. In another age or time this could have been a blast, but with BF3 and MW3 out there, it's hard to believe anyone would want to spend their money here.
  6. Eurocom's recycled but robust offering might have been worth it if Battlefield 3 and Modern Warfare 3 weren't stealing the limelight this Christmas. Golden Eye Reloaded is fun, but fails to square up to the FPS big boys.

    The old school game design along with the empty servers that cripple the online experience, make the latest addition to the Bond franchise one of the weakest we've ever seen.

    This game is addictive! Controls are smooth, storyline is compelling, and the replay value is high (I find myself replaying missions right after completion just to see if I can complete all objectives). I found the difficulties to be just right, with a player experienced in shooters able to play on the 007 difficulty pretty easily. Overall, the game is just fun, and easy to jump into right away.

    Goldeneye: Reloaded is the type of game that people got the same reaction to as they would have for Batman Arkham Asylum. . .epic and exciting! Personally I lost interest in the whole Call of Duty franchise ever since Modern Warfare 2 but even though Goldeneye is through the same developers and same Call of Duty engine, the campaign is as exciting and explosive as the original was for the Nintendo 64! Although people say its not the same as the N64 version, I think i should point out THIS IS NOT BASED ON THE GAME, Its based on the MOVIE! With that taken into account, enjoy the game! 8/10 :) Expand

    If nostalgia is the reason for getting this game, don't bother. They changed the story line for who knows what reason. Yes, I understand that half the little kiddies who play games now don't even know what the USSR is but that doesn't change that Goldeneye was a good story and hearing "Climate Change" in a James Bond game made me puke in the sink. This game is like a watered down version of Call of Duty. While I do enjoy the Call of Duty series, it has its limitations and this game included all of them. What the f*ck is up with these extra objectives? Thanks for not putting them on the map for me guys. There will be a small "i" for information symbol that appears next to the map when you are near an objective. You will pull out your phone, read the objective twice, go around in circles and if you are lucky find the objective. More than likely you will walk to far away and get to the next checkpoint, locking yourself out and having a "Mission Incomplete" to deal with at the end. While you will be able to go on you will find yourself swearing.

    The A.I. is covered in every other review but let me just say that it bares repeating how utterly inconsistent it really is. Sometimes enemies run blindly three at a time right into your gun. Sometimes a guy with an RPG waits until you are just in range and one-shots you. It is more annoying than anything when you come from a BF2 or COD game to this and realize they came out at the same time. Which brings me to my third and final point. I was hoping, albeit a little naively, that this game would be something different than the aforementioned juggernauts. I was excited at the prospect of Goldeneye being reinvented. I did read about it for the Wii and simply ignored it as Wii =/= FPS =/= Online play. The real let down was how they changed the story and the wonky objectives needlessly being placed in the game and then not showing up on the map.

    Being a large fan of the original N64 Goldeneye, I stupidly bought this as a Christmas gift for my younger brother who owns a 360. Activision are evidently cashing in on the good name of Rare's N64 game. However unlike the 1997 fps classic, this game is mediocre in every aspect. Since this game uses the same engine as the COD series you would have thought that the gameplay would be smooth and fluid. Unfortunately, the movement within the game is clunky and awkward. The sound is appalling as well. It feels and sounds as though you are firing toy guns. I can not emphasise how bad it is. Now lets get onto the multiplayer. How can they have messed this up so badly? It is a half baked copy of the COD multiplayer, but the matchmaking service is slow and confusing. Why didn't they just look at what works and copy that? I am in the UK on a fibre optic 44mb broadband connection and I have yet to find a server that does not lag. The game is currently unplayable online that is how bad it is. You can't run 4 paces without stopping. I myself play FPS on a pc and not on a games console. I would avoid this one at all costs. BF3 and MW3 are both better games. Battlefield 3 offers the best fps multiplayer experience. For anyone that wants to relive the nostalgia of Goldeneye - rent the movie or dust off your N64, because this one is a disappointment.

    What a disappointment. The characters' appearances (aside from Daniel Craig) have been changed to generic models, completely unrecognizable aside from their names; presumably due to licensing issues. The single-player missions themselves have some infuriating level design choices and bear little resemblance to the original game or the movie itself. The last level gives you a couple minutes to run across catwalks that collapse for no reason other than to slow you down, while spawning an infinite amount of enemies at you in a level with no cover. The chase across Cradle is now an annoying fight against an invincible character that's bookended by weak QTE scenes. Multiplayer is absolutely awful, nothing like the original. If you're looking for a nostalgic multiplayer experience, save your money and buy the XLA version of Perfect Dark instead. Expand

    This is a fantastic game. However, it pales in comparison to the original Goldeneye on Nintendo 64. This game features Daniel Craig, who is a far worse James Bond than Pierce Brosnan. The shooting mechanics are great, but they obviously are far behind most modern day shooters like Call of Duty and Battlefield. I would highly recommend this game to people who want a quick taste of nostalgia, but that is about it. Expand
