Re-adaptation, not remake
on February 15, 2015
Let me be absolutely clear: This is not a remake of the original Goldeneye 007 game on the Nintendo 64. Rather, it is a re-adaptation of the Goldeneye 007 movie. The only things that I can recall being the same in this game and the old N64 one, are the part where you drop down into the bathroom stall from the vent, and when you shoot the latches on the escape hatch on the train. Other than that, the level designs are totally different, and probably more accurate to the movie (It's been a long time since I've seen it). Same goes for the story... it's a lot more in-depth than the old game.
Okay, enough about the differences. The point is, it's not a remake. As far as gameplay goes, I really enjoyed it. I preferred the Wii Remote + Nunchuk controls, mostly because of my experience with the Metroid Prime Trilogy. I tried it with the classic controller that it comes with, too, and while I did like it, I was too used to the Wii Remote to go back to anything else. The aiming is precise, and the multiplayer is phenomenal! I think my favorite thing to do, however, was sneak around and NOT get caught. I only ever played using the regenerative health mode, but there are other modes available for more hardcore-type players to challenge you. Some modes don't even allow for you to heal at all! So I hope you'll consider giving this a try, even if just for the multiplayer.
