New Goldeneye Game. Will it be good?


Im a huge fan of the original Goldeneye game on the N64. It's one of my favorites. The fact that they are remaking it is enough of a reason for me to be wary. They are going all wrong with this remake. Here's a list: 1. Different developer, 2.Makers of usually bad games, 3. Dosen't look any different then other wii shooters (or shooters on any platform for that matter). The N64 game was very original, even now, with the objective based gameplay. This game seems like it's point A to point B gameplay. Also, Eurocom made Quantam(did I spell that right?) of Solace, the wii version getting a 5.5 out of 10 from the website Gamespot. All of these things make me unconfident with this new Bond game. However, this game does seem like it could be good. I don't know. I'm on the fence. My confidence rating:==

It's an FPS on the Wii, I think we all know how it will turn out.

It should be fine. It's and interesting remake concidering what they're doing to it. Re-imagining it if you will.

I highly doubt it.

I played some of the multiplayer at PAX.  It was actually pretty fun.

 I think it'll be 2 out of 5 on Giant Bomb and I think people will refer to it as acceptable, but that's it.

  I'm on the fence about Goldeneye. Maybe it going to be good or not, we'll have to see when the game comes out.

It's being made by Eurocom, who also made Dead Space Extraction. And Who Wants to be a Millionare?

Possibly, but reactions from the E3 Demo weren't very positive and I'm not particularly enthusiastic about it. I somehow doubt it will be a train wreck the way Rogue Agent was.

Well i don't have a problem in particular with the idea of a remake, Considering microsoft and nintendo can't come to some kind of agreement/conclusion  to release the original goldeneye on their respective virtual markets. I think mainly everyone will have a problem with the modernized remake because of the nostalgia factor involved, and some people will even complain about Daniel Craig being the new character model along with the changing of Alec Trevelyan's character model. i don't have a problem with this because After all this is a remake and a re invention of the video game unlike trying to cash in and trying to sneak into that sweet goldeneye nector like rogue agent did.  After all, this is not a multi-platform game.
 
I think a lot of us who grew up playing goldeneye and have played many of the disappointing fps bond games over the last few years are still worried and aren't convinced or confident that this bond game is any better. Rareware really has done something special with the original. but i must remind everyone on this blog that goldeneye hasn't aged very well in recent years. i think it is interesting to see a lot of the modern first person shooter mechanics we see today implemented into this game. it kind of gives us a idea on what goldeneye might have been like in this day and age. 
 
The video game isn't out yet, but i am anticipating it's release and i cannot wait to play it. I am not saying it is going to replace any of my nostalgic moments from the original goldeneye. but i can say that i am ready to make new nostalic moments along side those old ones. because the game looks like fun and i have faith that the game will have some kind of replay value. Cheers.

I'm on the fence, but I suspect I'll be disappointed. of course, I hope I'm wrong. (please make me wrong, Activision!)

Posted by Synthballs

I probably won't be picking it up. Even if the reviews are good. I don't want something to get rid of the nostalgia I have for the original game.

Posted by PrivateIronTFU

Well, it seems to be a remake in story only. Everything else I've seen makes it look fun as it's own little game. But I don't think they'll tarnish the reputation of the original in any way. Plus, nobody has played the game anyway, so who are we to judge it yet, really. As I always say, it's just like 'Innocent until proven guilty', but instead, 'Good game until proven to be shit'. You have to give them the benefit of the doubt.

Metroid Prime 3 had some of the best controls this gen because they perfected the Wii aiming.

@Kahnero: I totally agree with you

I don't have a Wii, but I trust Eurocom as a developer.
