James Bond returns. GoldenEye 007 is one of the greatest games of all time, but Nintendo dares to make a game with the same name and Daniel Craig as James Bond. Will they succeed?
Goldeneye – game of the year 1998 and maybe the best game of all time?
Now it’s obvious why Nintendo didn’t allow Rare to release a nearly finished Golden Eye XBLA, a 1:1 copy of the old Golden Eye but with HD graphics for XBOX 360 – they’re making their own Golden Eye game, because NINTENDO still owns the license for Golden Eye.
With that being said, Nintendo must be pretty confident that they can make a worthy successor, a game they want to call “Golden Eye”. This is probably the greatest challenge ever, because Golden Eye has influenced the entire genre more than any other game.
Golden Eye 007 won’t be Golden Eye
The new Golden Eye won’t be a copy of the old one. It will be an entirely new game with new levels, but it will follow the same story and you’ll meet a lot of old buddies in the multiplayer part of the game that features of 40 characters like Jaws and Oddjob.
HL2 Mod Golden Eye: Source still up and running
I am now even more surprised that Nintendo hasn’t shut down the very successful GoldenEye Half-Life 2 mod yet. If you haven’t tried it yet, do so now, it’s worth it!
Daniel Craig vs. Pierce Brosnan
Golden Eye Wii will be starring Daniel Craig as James Bond and not Pierce Brosnan. It doesn’t really make a difference for the gameplay, but it will make a difference for the atmosphere. Craig played James Bond really well, but it wasn’t a James Bond movie any longer, it was something different. Not bad at all, but different.
