GameInformer: GoldenEye 007 Review

GoldenEye 007 doesn’t feel like the retro dream it’s meant to be. This Bond game is lost in limbo somewhere between last generation and modern day shooters. Only diehard Bond or FPS fans with nothing but a Wii should bother picking this one up. Everyone else with fond memories of the N64 title should retrieve the game from their shelf, blow off the dust, smile fondly at it, and find peace in their fuzzy memories upon putting it back where it belongs.

If the next few reviews are also 6~7, I declare war against IGN.

IGN's opinion is just stupid in everything they do. They have made their way to the top of the least relevant list.

Eamon3649d ago

You do realise IGN isn't one person?

matey3649d ago

well gaming nexus reviewed the game A-/A+ which is 9.4/10 so no war then 9.1 on metacritic even with the 6.5 review that is obviously biassed

"If the next few reviews are also 6~7, I declare war against IGN"

Can we declare war against IGN even if they aren't?

Akagi3649d ago

We all know IGN got a nice big cheque for that score.

Eamon3649d ago

Actually, since it's Activision, it's very possible.

I suggest you people ACTUALLY LOOK AT THE REVIEWS AND SEE WHICH ONE GOES TO MORE IN-DEPTH. This is three paragraphs in length.

Game Informer still hasn't figured out how to use a Wii remote:

"Playing with the Wii remote and nunchuk feels tighter than The Conduit’s touchy controls, but you’ll want to go the dual-analog stick route with the Classic Controller Pro."

Do they even realize that you can customize the aiming settings?

I swear, every Game Informer Wii reviews mentions control problems that can be found in no other review.

That said, the IGN review didn't really go into enough depth on some topics--particularly the multiplayer--so I'm waiting for a more thorough review.

MsmackyM3649d ago

The IGN review may have been a little too glowing. For Game Informer to fault it the game because of their own inadequacy with the Wiimote is poor taste. There are a lot of gamers who are proficient with the Wiimote, and could go toe to toe, if not flat out pwn someone using dual analog sticks. Reviewers should judge games based on how well they are made, and not rather or not u suck.

Xander-RKoS3649d ago

These guys have made it abundantly clear that they don't like the wii remote when it comes to FPS games. They should probably just stop reviewing Wii games all together, since anyone looking for Wii reviews probably already knows that these guys have no clue what they are talking about.

Bring GoldenEye 007 to the Xbox Live Arcade & PSN!

turok3649d ago

... people still cry about this? give it up.

gamerdude1323649d ago

They did it with Perfect Dark, so why not GoldenEye? It is possible, though I doubt it'll happen.
