GoldenEye 007 reloaded for PS3 and 360

Says "new engine"... so this isn't an HD version of the Wii game; right?

Dear Activision: Let Goldeneye die. It was a great experience on N64, but these remakes are too different to hold any nostalgia value.

They already did an HD remake of a better game. 
 
PD for life, son. 
 
Oh lol... 
 
"Last year, Activision revived the GoldenEye franchise by releasing a revamped version on the Wii. Sporting improved graphics, an updated storyline, and the same four-player split-screen mode that made the original so compelling, GoldenEye 007 was a critical, if not commercial, success. However, the Wii-only release meant that Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 fans missed out on the action. That's all set to change this year with the release of GoldenEye 007: Reloaded, which is an HD version of the Wii remake, rather than a remake of the N64 version. Thus, you get Daniel Craig instead of Pierce Brosnan, a brand-new story, and a new multiplayer rewards system."

Too bad they're not remaking that awesome PS2 Goldeneye with all the...eye-powers, I guess you could call them...I liked that game! This looks good too so long as the james bond theme is playing in the background of every match. 
 
...You know what other game they should remake? From Russia with Love! That was also a cool game...yeah...they should do that too.

Remaking remakes is bad.

@JoeyIA:  No, this is just the Wii version in HD plus extras. 
@Vegsen:  This is not a remake, this is an enhanced port. 
 
I'm glad this is coming for those who refuse to buy a Wii for its great games. I actually just finished the story mode on 007 Classic Mode last night (the regular difficulties have regenerating health, while 007 Classic has the Health and Armor thing going). 
 
For those who are interested, the game is not much like the N64 game except for the guns and characters, and some map similarities here and there. 
 There was also a sweet ass tank level. 
  
The online is pretty good, but it might take a while to level up in order to unlock new things. But at least this reassures you that everyone you play against has around the same equipment as you. This also means that you'll know that a more powerful player is one who is in the 20, 30, 40, or 50 range levels. 
 
The graphics and sound on the Wii are pretty great and the new Goldeneye theme was written by Bono and the Edge from U2. 
 
P.S. 
Most people like to hate on this game because of the Goldeneye name. They're trying to keep their nostalgia memories or something. I also really like 007 Nightfire.

Why do people write an before HD? It bugs me so.

#11 Posted by PrivateIronTFU (3874 posts) -

That game doesn't deserve so much hate. It's the best shooter the Wii has.

I really enjoyed GoldenEye 007 for the Wii, probably won't pick this up though!

An is acceptable before HD as far as I know. If you say HD as "H" followed by "D" then the H has a silent H so its........HEAD EXPLODES

An HD, a high definition. 
 
A HD doesn't sound right when you say it out loud.

I'm not sure what you're even talking about. But when you say H it comes out as hay-ch and that H is not silent, therefore it is A H.

An HD, a high definition. A HD doesn't sound right when you say it out loud.

A HD TV. A HD film. A high definition TV. A high definition film. It sounds right because it is right.

An hour is correct. A high is correct. It depends on whether you are pronouncing a vowel (an) or a consonant (a) first.

@AlexW00d: H is not really pronounced hay-ch, though. It sounds more like ay-ch. 
 
Google "an or a before abbreviation."

To me, remaking an N64 game based on a Bond I didn't like with Daniel Craig for shits and giggles was dumb as hell. So I guess I'll pass.

You pronounce it "EYCH DEE", not "HEY DEE", right? Articles are applied based on pronunciation.
#18 Edited by Emilio (3380 posts) -
@AlexW00d: Who pronounces "H" as hay-ch? Everybody knows that it is pronounced as ey-ch. 
 
@Ghostiet:  
Do you not like Daniel Craig as Bond? I think he has been doing a great job. Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace are much better and "serious" Bond films that those yummy Brosnan flicks.

So PS3 and 360 owners are going to get the gaming equivalent of Never say never again........... GREAT!

I liked Casino Royale and I liked Craig in it. Quantum of Solace was shit. I like Brosnan only in Tomorrow Never Dies and The World is Not Enough.

But remaking a Brosnan-Bond movie tie-in with Craig as Bond is pretty Goddamn silly.

Unless it is really different in the parts of the world we're from, I, and everyone I know, pronounces it Haych. I am pretty sure all English people pronounce it that way.

Except cockneys; to them every H is silent.

Do you pronounce your 'H's as a hard sound, or a soft sound? I pronouce them soft (so like 'ey-ch' rather than 'hey-ch') so I say an HD instead of a HD.

Most definitely a hard-ish sound. I didn't even know people pronounced it without the H. I assume you, and everyone else who has said this, aren't English?

@Ghostiet
The World is Not Enough is when I stopped caring about James Bond.  That movie is almost as shitty as Moonraker.
#25 Posted by Ghostiet (5281 posts) -
@bartok
But Brosnan is bearable there and the "I never miss" line is great.

Will rent just to play the multiplayer for a few days. Not interested in playing through that campaign again.
