IGN: Goldeneye 007 Review

I can understand there’s a bit of resistance to the idea that GoldenEye 007 on Wii is anything but a cash-in for Activision, but believe it when I say that this game is one of the best Wii games of the year. Things might have changed in the last 15 years, but at the very least Activision and Eurocom have done wonders to capture the essence that the original Nintendo 64 game grabbed a decade and a half ago. I don’t think the WIi game will change the FPS genre in the same way the Rare design did, but as a standalone, original experience, it’s hard to deny this game’s greatness.

Will it come out on the HD twins?

No, Nintendo owns the Goldeneye (game) rights afaik

I regret selling my Wii...

I bought a Wii on day 1 for like $400aus...even after buying my Gamecube for $550AUS it felt like a disappointment. No Zelda or Mario ( or Mario Kart ) on day 1, yet her we are, 480p later and still trumping the cookie cutter-pc-lite consoles who's running $#!+.

jony_dols3275d ago

Yeah your right the Wii's game library is 10x better than the the combined game libraries of the PS3 & Xbox.

Games such Uncharted,Gears of War,LBP,GTs,Halos,Killzone 3d,GTAs,RDR,God of War.... ect. can't compete against the superior Wii.

@ Jony-dols,

Its ok bro, I got the sarcasm and I agree.

Seferoth753275d ago

@Jony, The most pathetic thing is to make the Wii look bad you had to name off games for 2 consoles to make one single console look bad..

Civ 5, Diablo 3, Starcraft 2, SMG, Golden Eye, Kirby, DKC, SMBWii, Crisis,GTA, RDR, Borderlands, Bioshock, Dragon age, Monster Hunter, Metroid, COD, and on and on and on. All without owning either a PS3 or a 360...

Hmm funny when I do the same thing you did, your consoles are left looking a little pathetic.

jony_dols3275d ago (Edited 3275d ago )

@ Seferoth75:

All i have to do is mention Uncharted 2, and it makes the whole Wii library look pathetic in comparison.

And if you read it carefully, you would see that I was responding to Nihilism's comment:

'yet her we are, 480p later and still trumping the cookie cutter-pc-lite consoles who's running $#!+.'

Which is a very stupid thing to say, considering I just showed off the quality of games available on both of the 'the cookie cutter-pc-lite consoles'

Seferoth753275d ago

Uncharted 2 huh? What makes it so great?1080p? I am sure if I looked into it I'd find it wasnt even at that res..

Going by review scores and sales SMG2 trumps anything on PS3 including uncharted. It is after all the highest rated exclusive this gen.

I am sure though that you will come up with some way that completely revolves around 1 aspect of the game to prove it is superior..

BTW love how you just completely ignore my point and go back to trolling.

Fact is I just showed you do not even need a PS3 this gen to experience great games. Oh and even your post alone proves that you need more than a PS3 this gen or you wouldnt be naming off 360 games.

This should look nice on the Dolphin emulator @ 1080p :D

Why the disagrees, you saying it won't look nice at 1080p?

Nihilism3275d ago (Edited 3275d ago )

I didn't say anything. Disagrees were not from me. You mustn't have been on this site long.

Rule number 1 of N4G: Haters gonna hate.

Actually yeah that sums up N4G perfectly, I'll just leave it at that.

turok3275d ago

... u'll dl the iso and not buy the game with that comment...

lh_swe3275d ago

than it ever has.

It's like the come-back year of the Wii...then again all the consoles are beginning to show what they are made of more and more every year.

I really didn't want to even look at this game. Activision redoing a classic and changing most of the major elements simply made me think "cash-in."

But apparently, it's good. Guess I'll check it out at price drop...

gillri3275d ago

okay..time to borrow my brother's Wii!!

very very impressed and I wasnt hyped for it whatsoever

matey3275d ago

i knew it would get a 9 i mean the sound of the guns and the atmosphere sound is amazing stuff and the graphics are very good i thought it would get 9.4 on ign maybe the UK review will be higher but wow with so many ps3 games getting bad reviews this is very refreshing and its Goldeneye alot to live up to and still gets a 9/10 WOW

jay23275d ago (Edited 3275d ago )

You guys are joking, right? This game is an insult to the 64 game and movie..... No Deal! It's just Halo and COD on Wii.

turok3275d ago

then that makes goldeneye EVEN GREATER
