After a decade of rumors in the industry; Goldeneye, one of the best video game of all time, is being remade for a new generation of gamers. But could all the expectations just be hype?
there is no hype after hearing its not really a remake, and knowing most bond games suck, and knowing it is being developed by activision, and knowing it is on the wii, and knowing about knowing all of this makes me know that this game will be average. but i am excited for it to say the least.
Nightfire was awesome so not all James Bond games suck. Wii is a bonus for me because of improved controls.
Nightfire was my fav. 4 Player splitscreen, getting the controlable rocket launcher and that is insta win. :D
007 Quantum of Solace was awful and I blame activision for slapping 007 artwork onto the COD4 engine. Seems like they are treating the COD4 engine as their cookie cutting template to make batches of shooters and easy money. @below, COD4 is not a bad game. We just don't need to clone it over and over. I blame the fools that buy the clones
I blame 10 million idiots for buying COD 4 in the first place.
COD4 was awesome, imo the highest point the CoD series reached before tumbling down to the ground.
from time to time. I try to forget anything COD related even happened after CoD4
There isn't that much hype, and they have already said that the game is NOT a remake, and odd job in multiplayer isn't short anymore. Maybe it will still be fun though.
ODDJOB ISN'T SHORT???? I feel like I'm taking crazy pills. How can Oddjob not be short anymore? That's what he's most famous for.
I wasn't aware it had any hype I was like, O cool a new goldeneye o it's on the Wii to next! I mean name a good fps on the Wii, wait it doesn't exist.
the conduit is a great game. so HA, go screw urself. stop bashing the wii. EDIT: oh and ive forgotten metroid prime 3 corruption, one of the best games on wii, and one of the best games in this gen of consoles.
Wow try red steel 2 also. Also the wii did get ports of mw2 etc.
o yea! i forgot about red steel 2, sorry bout that. and nah modern warfare reflex wasnt all that good.
I think this is a bad idea, I mean Goldeneye was unique at the time of the original release. now it has games like MW2 and Bad Company to deal with, especially on the Wii. I don't think it'll do well
Neither of the games you brought up are even on Wii for GoldenEye to compete with.
Also have a 360 or PS3... they're competing for gamers wallets, which unfortunately, aren't infinite. And with the Wii pricepoint not dropping NEARLY enough, 360 and PS3 are an increasingly viable companion system for those with a Wii but crave a more "hardcore" experience
of course it will its got daniel craig (the worst bond)
@Matthew94: Daniel Craig is the most boring bond ever. When I heard he was gonna be bond on this game, it just ruined it for me. And on top of that, this game will have even less playable characters on it than the first one.
Well We Will See From The Controls to the game play and game sell are good and most like it well be
prob not and it will unfairly be flamed for it
Remake or not, its going to be mediocre.
I sure hope so! And for anyone who says the game will suck because it has Daniel Craig instead of Bronan, you do realise how amazingly dumb that is, right? The fact that it has 5 local multiplayer maps sounds bad though. They just better be ALL be GREAT ones or this game is dead to me. It's between this and black ops for me. Can't be bothered with conduit2, sci-fi shooters kinda bore me.
I think it's dumb to make a video game called "Goldeneye" that has nothing to do with the film.
No, its basically COD:Goldeneye edition. That is not cool. Why couldnt they just update the controls and graphics. Its lost its soul.
The original was good, but slow as hell, basically the system could not handle it.
Shooters on the Wii don't exactly awe anyone...
activision has ruined one of my most wanted remakes
no way. Goldeneye was THE definitive console FPS that set the standards. this goldeneye will do what? look a little better? have a new bond in it? (goldeneye with daniel craig...thats an insult to brosnan's best bond act) no, it won't live up to it, and honestly it shouldn't even be remade, just remaster the original game and that would be enough!
Nightfire was good but Goldeneye was the definitive Bond in my opinion. Not only was Goldeneye the best Bond but it was one of the greatest first person shooters of those times and is still entertaining. If they don't butcher it and make it COD Bond it will be great. High hopes for this title. I had so many good times with that game.
Two words. WHAT.HYPE?
But that is like this gen's buzz word...hype. It is so fcking pathetic I want to sht myself every time I hear it. That and people starting sentences with "By now...". That's probably why I can't watch G4TV unless I mute the TV and just read the ticker at the bottom of the screen.
By now you must have realised that hype is a good thing.
cause the real remake is finished and rotting on a HDD at Rare... eff you Nintendo
Unfortunatly probably not, because its not just hype, its also nostalgia.
Golden Eye was a good game... FOR IT'S TIME! You have to bring something NEW and FRESH to the table if you want to impress today's crowd. A simple amp-up won't do you any good now...
