It kinda just looks like a generic shooter with a James Bond skin on the Wii right now. It will be very hard to relive the magic of the old game or live up to the hype. You all saw how the other Golden Eye game did.
So will it live up to the one on N64?
You can't remake a cultural phenomenon because that was yesterday's success. You're going to have to top it. Somehow I don't see this happening with this game.
" It is doomed to fail. You can't remake a cultural phenomenon. "
While details are still rather weak, one example of a yesterday mentality is the split screen multiplayer. Not that there is anything wrong with that, but most serious shooters have moved online. If this is not online, it's going to be like The Conduit all over again.
Aside from that though, until we see whether they're going to do a 1:1 copy of all the previous GoldenEye levels or is it going to do more, will we get new weapons/ways to kill people (death traps), and whether it has good controls (YOU HAVE TO MOVE AND SHOOT), I'm reserving judgement
Oh yeah, and lets not forget Rogue Agent.
Well considering there was a fair amount of gameplay in the trailer i think people can do what they want.
" I say you guys wait for an actual gameplay video instead of basing the hate off a trailer. "
Its obvious the graphics and gameplay are different, they have also added in different characters (Daniel Craig), and now apparently the story is not the one from the game or the movie, its plot is completely different but the levels will be in similar locations. I think thats enough reason for people to be angry. This stinks of another Rogue Agent to me
The fact that they went to the effort to stick Daniel Craig in the game just says it all to me. Regardless of how good it may or may not turn out there's nothing that will stop me from sighing every time I see that guy doing something that Brosnan should have done.
No. Absolutely not. Never.
I don't need to read any impressions from the show floor to know that this game is just abandoning the feel of the original and making it like every other FPS today, only with the name slapped on just to get people excited.
And I have actually been playing the original game for more than a week now after buying it from a used game shop, so it's not just memories that I'm basing my thoughts off of. The technical limitations of the original aside, Activision is ignoring the gameplay system and framework that not only made THAT game great, but its successor Perfect Dark great as well, just to make linear, checkpoint heavy gameplay with regenerative health.
Weird. Normally I don't want to hate a game so much. I normally choose to not care, but this...I can't help but feel angry. It's like I just want to crash the excitement of whoever's actually looking forward to this, and show them what Goldeneye really is, not just based on memories. Even if that ends up making me a bit of an asshole.
" Fuck no, it's being made by Treyarch. "It's made by Eurocom, dumbass.
And no, it won't live up to the N64 one because everyone still looks at the old one as if its still to this day the greatest FPS ever made, and they played that one to death for years. Even the slightest change, and people will bitch because, well, it's the internet and that's what whiny-ass fanboys do.
