    More than just a remake, GoldenEye 007 lives up to its predecessor and then some by not only modernizing the story but the multiplayer as well.

    If you love first person shooters or you're a huge James Bond fan, than this game has definitely been made for you. Best first person shooter to have ever graced the Wii? Probably So!

    Yet GoldenEye 007 could have gotten away without using that namesake as, against all perceptions upon initial reveal, this re-imaging is strong enough to stand on its own and, aside from a few online limitations and control niggles, it is easily one of Wii's best shooters.

    Overall I'd say that Goldeneye is more than worth your time, in fact, it's probably one of the best FPS titles on the Wii at this point.

    It was an impossible task to match the original and surprisingly, by changing almost everything, Eurocom came close to doing it. What they have managed to do is create the second best Bond game to-date, and given Wii owners a great shooter.

    GoldenEye 007 is a restoration of a classic.

    This is not your older brother's GoldenEye. It's been updated, re-skinned, had some control adjustments, and instead of reclaiming the crown of top four-player shooter, it's just another face in the crowd.

Not after theI've been neglecting the Wii for the most part of the past 2 years. Besides a few releases I've mostly played my Xbox 360. Not after the incredible past few months the Wii has had. I picked up Goldeneye a few weeks ago and I have to say it's the best FPS of 2010. Better than Black Ops? You bet. Better than Halo Reach? Yes! The rewriting of the Goldeneye story into modern times was very interesting. The story was actually written by the same person who wrote the original screenplay of the movie. The graphics are good for the Wii. The controls are excellent with the Wiimote & Nunchuck combo. I didn't play on the classic controller, but I'm sure that is fine too. The best part of the game is the mulitplayer. Plain fun. No people abusing killstreaks. Just plain gun on gun fun. So many choices and combinations to play the game. The multiplayer has 200 options on how you can play it. It's amazing. Just like the N64 version. Must buy for any fan of Bond or shooters. Expand

    Don't listen to Game Informer, they are the worst and most biased reviewers out there. They're like the Armond White of the video gameDon't listen to Game Informer, they are the worst and most biased reviewers out there. They're like the Armond White of the video game industry and their reviews are short and irrelevant to what matters: is the game fun? And the answer in this case is yes.

    Stop comparing it to the dated N64 game - this is a RE-IMAGINING. Not a remake. And it's better than the original as long as you aren't wearing nostalgia goggles. Buy the game, play it for a couple hours and you'll agree.

    Best FPS on Wii (I don't count Metroid Prime as an FPS).

Do not expect a remake though; this is a reimagining. It is a great shooter in its own right, with a modernised story and a new cast of voice actors, along with Daniel Craig as Bond. It has a great campaign, with a variety of stealthy and run-and-gun missions. And that's before the multiplayer. The split screen is fun and has provoded me and my friends with hours of kicking each other and throwing proxys around. There is also a meaty online portion, although the level up is slow. Expand

I feel that (although mentioned in the review) Cardboard is judging the game based on how it differs from the original. If they didn't change the level design at all, then who in their right mind would pay them? Granted I have only played the first two levels, and I'm not saying the game is a 10 but I wholeheartedly disagree with the fact that it did not remind the user of the original. Perhaps the use of the word "children" in the review is a clue that Cardboard was too young to form solid memories of Goldeneye 64, and therefore cannot seem to accurately connect axons in their brain, producing memory triggered events. LOL a good portion of the levels and the objectives I've played through are nearly identical. Yes, it plays like CoD... ACTIVISION MADE IT! This is my first review online for ANY game, but it doesn't take an expert critic to say that this is (so far) an entertaining and well made game with decent multiplayer action. I'll assume the replay value is high as there are multiple difficulty levels with different objectives (as well as online play!) If you think ANY wii game is worth $50 then pick this one up! Expand

I think this is easily one of the best shooting games for the Wii. It does not equal the excellence of Goldeneye of N64 but on its own merit, it is still a very good game. Great controls, good single player, and a surprisingly fun multiplayer mode that has a COD like unlocking system (the more levels you gain, the more weapons, etc. that unlock). The only downsides are the graphics, which are a bit subpar even for a Wii game, and the lack of voice options in multiplayer (although I don't miss it too much because the voice chat on other systems can be annoying and downright obnoxious).

    If you're looking for a good shooter for the Wii, look no further. After being out for one year, I still pick this game up and play. And at $20 at most places now, this game is an absolute must for fans of first person shooters.

The Wiimote-nunchuck setup works well, but it's harder to control for and less preferable for me. Unfortunately, I never played the original. Goldeneye's story and missions do feel like James Bond and it's been time since a good Bond game has been released. The game has very good variation (with vehicles, stealth, and more), but the difficulty during a missions can vary too much. Its AI can be very unintelligent and too quick (they all instantly know your position once your stealth is blown). If you own a Wii, I would certainly recommend this game. Expand

    Having bought this game for only £10 I thought it would be a great addition to my new nintendo wii collection, even if it was a poor game itHaving bought this game for only £10 I thought it would be a great addition to my new nintendo wii collection, even if it was a poor game it would still be worth £10... Right? Well I have to say sadly I am wrong, don't get me wrong the campaign seems alright and follows the movie script pretty close, however if like me you want a good online shooter then this game is just awful!

    One thing that gets me is that the game can't decide what it wants to be, either CoD or N64 Goldeneye, then tries to be a mix of both and ends up feeling all wrong! It uses the CoD health system (in which your health regenerates) and yet tries to give it self more of a gun and run feel, I can't help but think this game should have brought back the old health pack and body armor way of FPShooters.

    The thing that most annoys me about this game is the stupid connection or lag the seems to plague my system... and by the look of some of the reviews I'd think it was only mine, till i reliese its purely down to host connection. I can't tell you how many times I have emptied an entire clip on someone only to hit them once or twice (With burst fire BTW) then have them turn around and waste me! All the guns other then shotgun are junk, meaning that the people who pick the shotgun with more often then not prosper, to be fair thou there is such a lack of guns in this game its unreal, its like the makers of the game wanted to keep true to the 64 game that this game mocks just by being one minute and then be modern the next with weapon scoping... What with like 5 guns!

    I hate the way that when you scope the game locks on to someone, however because no one in there right mind would stay still... especially after taking a few hits it really ends up doing more harm then good, Very frustrating.

    No Wii speak, No way of keeping in touch with people you meet on like, no fun to be had. Only saving grace is that there is still always a game to be had, but for the price you would be silly to not get CoD Black Ops if you want a Wii FPS
