GoldenEye 007 is a first-person shooter developed by Eurocom and published by Activision for the Nintendo Wii and Nintendo DS on November 2nd, 2010. Released in tandem with James Bond 007: Blood Stone (for the other seventh-generation consoles), GoldenEye 007 is a re-imagining of the 1997 Nintendo 64 Rareware classic of the same name (as well as a looser re-imagining of the 1995 movie GoldenEye). Much of the original game's story and gameplay mechanics have changed, including the portrayal of Daniel Craig as James Bond, switching the setting from the post- Cold War 1990's era to a modern late 2000's setting (in similar vein to other James Bond films starring Daniel Craig), and re-doing the multiplayer component, including online multiplayer for up to eight players (complete with a persistent experience system with unlocks and achievements) as well as the classic four-player split-screen multiplayer.
The game was ported to the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 and released a year later as GoldenEye 007: Reloaded, revamping the controls and graphics engine while boosting the player limit of online multiplayer to 16 and adding a special challenge mode known as "MI6 Ops Missions".
GoldenEye supports four-player local split screen multiplayer and online play. The online mode supports up to eight players and features a full experience system complete with unlocks and achievements. In local multiplayer, characters from other James Bond films including Francisco Scaramanga, Jaws, and Oddjob are all playable.
The game includes the following characters from GoldenEye and other James Bond films as playable characters in local multiplayer:
As in the Nintendo 64 version, there is a long list of playable minor characters and minions such as: Slav, Hazmat, Soldier, Pilot, Security, Sky Briggs, Red-one, Red-four, Red-five, Red-nine, Pvt. Gurov, Pvt. Harkov, Pvt. Shkadov, Pvt. Kozmin, Jones, Davis, Smyth, Adams, Two-Two, Two-Four, Two-Six, Two-Seven, Sgt. Glebov, Sgt. Baikov, Sgt. Chzov, Sgt. Drashev, Five-One, Five-Two, Five-Three, Five-Four, Vincent, Boris, Allonso, Sgt. Morozov, Sgt. Zotkin, Sgt. Udalov and Sgt. Shubkin.
