In 1995 the Irish Pierce Brosnan became the new English James Bond and rebooted the film franchise with GoldenEye. Two years later, developer Rare released the seminal GoldenEye 007 for N64, which placed a definitive end (on the "yes they can" side) to the argument that shooters couldn't be done well on consoles. Flash forward to 2006: Daniel Craig dramatically reignited Bond onscreen in Casino Royale. And now, two years later, a new Bond game is gearing up for its impending release. If ever there were a good reason to hope for history repeating, this game is it.
