Jump ahead a decade and a half, and fps have come a long way, so this won't stand out like it used to.
There are a lot of great fps games for the various systems, but this is the best by far for the Wii. There are some great customizable controls with the wiimote, which is the preferred method of choice by many expert users. However, it's not as confusing to customize as say on the game "Conduit", which is not as good as Goldeneye. It lets you control what you need. I purchased a classic controller pro to use for this game, and it's great, although as good of a controller as on the PS3, but it's cheap. The best players with the wiimote are better than the best with the classic controller. I can choose from a selection of various controller button options, but I can't customize each button. I wish I could, but I understand they are catering to people who want to get into the game quickly, and the options they have are some of the best, either left or right handed.
The solo mission can be vary difficult when trying the harder levels. Very hard. And I can go back and retry missions, so playability is okay. But where the game really shines is in multiplayer. I haven't been this hooked on any kind of multiplayer game, and I think a large part of it is because you can earn experience points with each fight and raise your level higher. The higher you go, the more weapons and accessories there are that you can unlock, enhancing the fun factor. I find this factor singlehandedly the best thing they've done with Goldeneye. You can see your rankings with other players around the world. You can play with friends, groups, or just on your own. You can play with or against up to 8 people at a time, and the map selections are very good.
Some subtleties--I like the fact that this game is about humans on a mission, with a storyline that is very familiar with the mainstream. I have no interest in humans fighting aliens or monstrous creatures. I take interest in weapons that are of the real world, and missions that make sense. This is just something that I can appreciate, as it bucks the trend.
Overall, I highly recommend this game because of the multiplayer aspect, which lets you play continuously by moving up the ranks. That alone is worth its purchase. As far as controls go, I find the wiimote to not be as natural for me, and I use the classic controller pro. I wish the controller was a little bit more sensitive, but it does the job.
However, with the release of "Goldeneye" for the Wii, I simply had to have it. The original "Goldeneye" on the N64 was the game that really got me hooked on the genre, so when I first heard it was being remade, I knew I would have to get it.
I'm glad I did.
The game is really good. I really liked how it all felt so familiar, yet different at the same time. The story was tweaked just a tad to fit more with the times, but it still followed the story of the movie and the original game pretty closely. I loved coming across something that I remembered so fondly from the original game.
I will say that the only thing I didn't really like about the game was the controls with the Wii Remote and Nunchuck. I ended up having to buy a Classic Controller Pro to really have fun with it. If you are used to using the Wii Remote in first person shooter games, this probably won't be an issue for you...but if you enjoy using a standard controller for your FPS games, then know that the Classic Controller Pro does a great job of controlling this game.
Overall, this is a must have package for any FPS fan and any Wii owner.
- Call of Duty gameplay. I'm not implying that GoldenEye copied CoD, but the gameplay is very similar. It's a pro because the gameplay works very smoothly, but it's quite disheartening to see nothing new brought to the table.
- Nice action packed campaign.
- Some interesting multiplayer modes
- Split Screen (why have console games been getting rid of this?)
- One of the best FPS on the market for the Wii...which is unfortunately not saying very much.
- Nostalgia. (I wouldn't know, but I'm sure this will bring back pleasant memories for the fans of the original)
- Gamecube controller is surprisingly good for FPS games.
- If you are a FPS veteran, you will gain very, very little from playing this game. Campaign does nothing new or interesting, and multiplayer is the same shallow system we have seen done repeatedly on the PC.
- Slow frame rates. There are times during the the game when the game becomes sluggish, mainly when there are a lot of enemies. This also occurs during multiplayer. When I buy a game for a console, I expect it to be perfectly smooth.
- Short campaign. Finished probably less than 5 or 6 hours.
I can really only recommend this game to those who are fans of the FPS genre but are limited to playing on the Wii, for whatever reason. Even then, games like Black Ops, or Modern Warfare Reflex should still be much better choices. While GoldenEye has a very stylish and fancy cover and UI, the game itself is very bland and presents nothing new to the table FPS veterans have already seen. It's campaign is fun enough, but the Call of Duty series have much more intense campaigns with more interesting multiplayer, which make it very difficult to recommend GoldenEye to most gamers.
