I should have known they would try and make these controls so realistic that they would just would not feel fun. Returned it already. If you masturbate to cars spinning around in neutral white space it might be your game. For me, i like fun, fast racing games. GT5 just ain't for me. Get the new NFS you can actually have fun then.… Expand

In many ways i have say to say it's more similar to the Call of Duty offerings for wii.then it's original n64 counterpart. The story is completely redone and the controls are not cumbersome like they were on that silly n64 controller.
However while it is similar to Call of Duty, it immediately becomes better then EVERY call of duty game. In call of duty, you are a soldier in the army, they always paint it as serious and realistic. Here we see what kind of fps activision can make not restrained within the confines of the war motif. You are a secret agent and because of that this game gets to give the player settings and scenarios more fun then any, "kill all the terrorists" fsp campaign. Setpieces are ridiculous in scope and the graphics are nicely done and smooth. It isn't the exact same story as the movie either, it feels like they didn't just remake the game Goldeneye they also remade the movie on top of that. But in a real good way. It's replayable as heck! The concept of stealth verses force is always there and there is always a way to make through the level without being caught, This is exactly what i wanted from the campaign and it works so well.
Controls are great in split screen and online multiplayer. I have become accustomed to wiimote/nunchuck controls in previous wii fps titles and really appreciate it. This game doesn't exactly do those pointer controls perfectly. Once in a while you'll point outside of the screen and seems very limited in the range of pointing. It makes the game more frantic since smaller adjustments really do do more in this case. But if your a dual analog addict then classic controller pro works great too but needs minor sensitivity adjustments before gameplay. The modes include all the greats from goldeneye plus some really creative new additions. The part that got me is the darn near pitch perfect multiplayer map design, tons of hiding places, a clear theme for weapons for each level, and each level has a flow and feel that makes it really feel like an old multiplayer game of goldeneye. If there was one thing they got right, it was that.
All in all, this game is just plain fun, it offers a huge amount of content and replay. In my opinion it out does the original in many many ways. Don't believe the hate. This really and damned good game. In all rights it kinda does deserve the popularity of the original. Yet it will never happen because of the way gamers regard the wii today. But if your a real gamer, a gamer who didn't start gaming in 1996, this title is an absolute treat and more then worthy for you to "dig out that wii" for.… Expand
