Was hoping for a graphics cleanup, this game in 4k might not look too hot. We shall see though, I am happy for the frame rate update.

4k will make things look sharper, but also accentuate the imperfections. The smoother frame rate has me sold.

With zero graphical updates, this is more lazy filler nobody was asking for. Such an amazing game to be shown so little love in a remastering. Now if they had even updated just the graphics to look maybe like say borderlands artstyle, we’d feel like this was really something big to look forward to, but instead this comes off to me as more uninspired filler content to say “we have something”.

4k will make the edges of the blocky, extremely low poly models even clearer, less pixelated, but the textures will still be just as blurry, which were already blurry at SD resolution, but in 4K... it will stick out like a sore thumb.

Won't look that great sadly. Already tested with an N64 emulator with upscaling. They really should have remade it.

Concertoine194d ago

They did - for 360 complete with some new textures, 60 fps, abd new character models like the Perfect Dark remake. Then it never got released due to licensing problems

LittleChris2016195d ago

What I seriously don't get is that they remade this for the 360, it's already out there for us to play on emulators, is this that remake at 4K? Or the OG N64 one at 4K? If it's the OG one then whhhhhhhhhy!!!!! Why not just spruce up the remake they did...would have made a hell of a lot more sense....

Xbox resorts to necromancy to boost GP.

This is also releasing on Nintendo switch as well

SullysCigar194d ago

Except the Switch version also gets online multiplayer, which sadly won't be coming to xbox.

Honestly, with these visuals, Switch is the way to go. On xbox, on your 60" TV this will hurt your eyes and ruin your fond memories of what WAS a great game BACK THEN!

Sadly, only the Switch version will get the online part.

SoulWarrior195d ago

It's also only the ROM, I'd gladly forgo online play to play the actual remaster and not this version at 10fps, still a weird decision to not have MP in the xbox version.

Jericho1337195d ago

Obviously some sort of licensing issue has prevented online play on Xbox… which is especially odd if rare are making it. Oh well, old school split screen it is.

Golfcoachh195d ago

I was thinking the same thing. Nintendo must retain certain rights on this game. No other reason not to have online multiplayer.

I have a Switch but I'm not getting it, I would have hoped for a PC version with updated graphics.

Get the GoldenEye 007 XBLA version online and run it on a Xenia emulator. This GoldenEye version has updated graphics. Played it with an Xbox controller on PC and was cool with the updated graphics.
