Best wii shooter so far!
I have seen the movie GoldenEye (which was awesome), but I never played the original N64 title. But hopefully, one day it will come on the virtual console. When I heard about the remake, at first I rolled my eyes, but I changed my mind when a friend told me how awesome it was.
The story follows the movie, mostly, they change some of the locations of some of the events in the movie, and I don't want to spoil anything for people who don't know the plot of the movie. One thing that was weird was the changing of characters. By this I mean, they got Daniel Craig as Bond and changed all the other character voices and designes. It doesn't take away or add anything to the game, it was just pointless and I wish they didn't change the designs and got the old actors from the movie, but the voice acting was very well done anyway.
The graphics are good for what the wii is capable of, there is sometimes a choppy frame rate, but it's nothing that will affect the gameplay.
You could use either the wii mote nuchuck combo, classic controller pro, or gamecube controller. I liked the wii mote nunchuck combo. For those of you who prefer dual analog stick aiming, use the classic controller pro and get the game with the gold controller like I did.
What I liked a lot about the gameplay was how you had to put a bunch of stealth in it and there would be some running and gunning in it, so the game was never boring. From what I heard, the levels aren't recreations of the original, so don't expect the exact same campaign. One thing that I don't like was that the game could be dark at times. Yes sometimes you were given night vision goggles but the darkness could still get annoying. The split screen multiplayer was so much fun, it's the best part of the game. You chose your character to play as and the weapon that they use, choose how the match will go and the arena, and thats it. The online mulitplayer was good, but not great. The lag could get very bad at times, but other times there was no lag and it was a lot of fun. Oh and the game is hard even on the easiest setting.
Good: Controls, Graphics, Single player, split screen multiplayer, online mode is fun when there's no lag, voice acting difficulty.
Bad: Too dark sometimes, minor choppy frame rate (in single player mode), the online mode isn't fun when there is lag.
Overall, "GoldenEye 007" for the wii is amazing, anyone who has a wii and likes first person shooters, get this game now. And those of you who don't want to get this game because you loved the original so much, give it a try, you might like it.
I give this game a "9.5 out of 10" (Superb)!
