the fact that they named the new bond game after goldeneye is a slap in the face to the n64 classic....

PC gamers had and still have higher standards when it comes to FPS.

Yeah I was thinking the same thing. At the time I was both a PC gamer and a console gamer and was wondering why the game was so popular when games like Quake were around. It made no sense to me.

huh thats weird I played golden eye on the n64 and quake 3 arena next. golden eye was great for console controlls and actualy halo copies it almost to the t.

You have to remember what quake 3 maps looked like back then lol. Also every one was not gfx whores then game play matter which is why epic always struggled.

Oh yeah have any of you guys played the new version it sweet.

halo controls do not copy GE. In GE Strafe and look up/down were on the c buttons, and the stick was forward and turn. Halo the left stick is strafe and forwards/backwards and the other is aim.

Turok on N64 controls more like halo and pc fps with the c-buttons acting like WASD on the keyboard, and the stick aiming.

GE was a great FPS, especially considering what they did with a n64.

I never play with the default setup. I forgot which one I used but when I played halo I was like wow it's almost the same. I like straf th turning while aiming. Like I said I was playing pc and dreamcast. It did feel like golden eye to me though.
