I have serious doubts about Activision and Goldeneye. Still strikes me as a cheap trick.

I agree, it feels like a complete nostalgia based money grab.

Classic gaming back from the dead? That's not a good thing you fucking idiot.

It looks like it could've been great, but they picked the wrong system. Goldeneye may have been on the N64 and so the Wii seems like a good fit, but everyone's going to compare this to the newest Call of Duty and it just can't begin to compare, no matter how skilled the developers are or aren't.

Sooooooooo........ is anyone on the site actually going to buy this game?

I absolutely loved the first GoldenEye. Hopefully, this one will be more than just a cheap rehash.

why......

That video just made me want the game even less.

Am I meant to be excited?

Posted by Daniel_Newton

Seriously, it's not that hard to have some friends over to play some Goldeneye on an N64.
Better yet, set it up on an N64 emulator on a PC and play it in high definition, it'll probably look better than this Wii version will too.

All this split-screen doesn't make me want this game- it makes me want a Timesplitters 4.

They're really humping the nostalgia effect for all it's worth. 
  
Feels soulless already.

This might be the final nail in the Wii coffin.  I don't know another person who owns a classic controller so 4 player is impossible.  The Wiimote is awful for FPS.  The graphics look grimey as hell and Nintendo arent exactly known for their online ability.
 
I'm calling 3 stars max on this one, probably 2.

Still no Xenia, where am I going to get my sadomasochistic dominatrix fix?

i have my fond memories. that's enough for me.

This reminds me so much of the Brink developer videos--"British guy throws out marketing terms to describe why his game is so amazing/great." Reaction to said videos: Immediately lose all hope the game could even be slightly good.

The original will remain the best.

cause I totally love having my screen chopped up 4 ways...
 
no, no i do not.

Posted by ProfessorEss

Man this looks lousy.

Posted by Sooty

The Wii continues to impress me, it was released in 2006 yet still has a hard time matching the graphics found on a 1998 Dreamcast.

Posted by RedUFO

Wow, overwhelmed by the ridiculous hate this is getting. 
 
It looks fun.

Posted by ArbitraryWater

Yep. If I didn't need more proof that this is nothing more than soulless nostalgia exploitation... There's a reason why multiplayer gaming has moved past split screen.

I can't wait to re-live the golden era of GoldenEye's 007, I remember the perks, unlocks, and ranks like it was just yesterday...oh wait no I don't because they were never in the game. Activision is trying to do a nostalgia money grab and can't even get the nostalgia part right, the multiplayer outside of split screen looks nothing like it did on the Nintendo 64 version of the game.

Posted by Claude

I think I'll get this for the holidays. Looks like fun.

If I want a Goldeneye Fix I go for Goldeneye: Source

" Is it possible to recapture the magic of Rare's N64 classic? Activision hopes so."

 
Activision hopes so
 
 Activision 
 
Yea, it's gonna bite. They're gonna just play off nostalgia instead of doing anything meaningful to make the game good.
Posted by jonnyboy

Nope.

Posted by hmmisee

God it looks shit

Posted by Sly_Ry

I won't understand if Max Zorin isn't in the game. He actually...yano, GUNNED DUDES DOWN. 

Posted by Krrutch

couldve seen this selling a shit ton more if they released it on xbla
although i imagine they cant due to licensing

Posted by Tomkang

4 player split screen "Classic gaming back from the dead" lol. Halo 2 did that.

Amen to this. Kotick-bullshit detector's rocketing sky high.
Posted by PosableActionFigure

No, because this is not the N64 and it is not 1997.

Posted by Cday

TLDR: 007 Modern Combat
 
For people who claim to like Goldeneye so much they sure have no problem with bastardizing it.

Posted by Nilazz

Sorry, but this looks like shit.

Posted by Rotnac

this actually just makes me want to play the original more... lol

Posted by commandercup

I love how they cut out to the people playing... especially since they don't look very excited

Posted by MeatSim

All this would seem impressive if it was 1997.

Why?
Posted by ch3burashka

Still a cash grab, at least from the managerial perspective.
