Possible licensing issues? Nintendo was the publisher of the original, so they main retain some rights to the name.

Daniel Craig. Daniel fucking Craig. This is not GoldenEye. This is... GoldenEye Christmas Special or something.

Hey! Why not reboot Halo 1 but the with the story written by M. Night Shyamalan. Or Half-Live with Kratos as a scientist.

Shame on you.

Looks like a vintage bond game, in both good and bad ways.

The good way is that it looks like a pretty fun shooter, the bad way that it's hideous.

Oh great, another amazing game turned to shit. They should've done what Microsoft did with the Perfect Dark remake that was released on Xbox Live. But nooooo, that would've been way too good. Instead they made the game into your average run of the mill FPS.

I am quite mad.

Why all the hate?
It's just Daniel Craig's face, plus the graphics are better than the N64 version, and the gameplay is probably the same golden formula that still works nicely.

Yeah, I don't know about this one. They've been trying to make this particular brand of gold lightning strike twice now, for quite some time. They came close with Perfect Dark, but all other attempts have ended poorly, for the most part.

Aside from the ludicrous plot Perfect Dark was a far superior game. It had more depth and options than any game I've played before or since. Now everything is about graphics so no one is going to make games with 60+ weapons that all have second abilities, or co-op AND counter-op. Those were the good old days when developers cared about the quality of their product.

Sure, and aside from the sometimes childish colourful aesthetic, it was, at its core a much improved game. But the simplicity and grittiness of the first was something the second was lacking. Both great games, and this one will have some mighty big shoes to fill if they wish to top them.

looks fun, but...
*sigh* did they REALLY have to bring back Oddjob to the Multiplayer? I hope they fixed the aiming mechanics over the last 15 years :(

Wow, this looks ugly. If it is as fun as 007 n64 it will be awesome but, damn, the graphical quality almost looks worse than the original. Mr. Craig's oblate spheroid head certainly doesn't improve matters any.

Actually watch the 4 player split screen, all of the aiming looks terrible.

I looked at this and thought 'Man, these graphics look awful.' Then I saw it was on Wii and was no longer surprised.

looks like it'll be fun. better than n64 obviously and hey, maybe I'll be able to follow theplot, rather than compare it's likeness to the original movie

I'll stick with Goldeneye Source. I am glad to see the team is continuing even after the guy committed suicide, and they're honoring him by finishing it.

My Wii remains dusty.

There is a fine line between changing so little that it looks like an obvious moneymaker and changing so much that it looks nothing like the original, and this one tiptoed over that line quite well before stepping on its own shoelaces and tumbling to the side. It changed a little too much.

I mean, the original already let you drive a tank. Twice. You don't need much else.

Of course this is just a trailer but since I don't have a wii it's all I'll know about it anyway.

I played this game at PAX and it really is just a watered down Call of Duty. The multiplayer feels NOTHING like Goldeneye. It feels like a bad fan mod for Modern Warfare. This is just a cheap licensing gimmick cash in game.

DO NOT PURCHASE

That's my beef with this game: it's not. It's basically a Modern Warfare mod, judging from the gameplay videos. Sprint buttons! Melee buttons! Instakill melees! Wouldn't be too surprised if there was regenerating health in there as well. All in all, it's a cash-in.

Dear Daniel Craig,
You have ruined James Bond by making him into a lame version of Jason Bourne who doesn't have any cool gadgets, any funny quips, or any personality. Please crawl into a dark corner somewhere and die.

Dear ReiverCorrupter

Thank you for your letter.

I regret to inform you that your copy of the latest James Bond movies must have had a miss-print in the opening credits. I am an actor hired to play a character. I did not write the script, build the sets, or direct the movies. I feel your feelings must be directed towards the studio and directors of the franchise, and not the cast or crew.

Sincerely

Daniel Craig

thirteen wins by a landslide.

OT: It looks like a good game. Sure, it won't be the same without Pierce's pixelated face at the start of every level, but to be honest, that's not really important.

Not a Bond fan, but honestly, this game's graphics look like shit. What the hey, what is this, a PS2 game? Pete's sake, I know it's for the Wii, but No More Heroes looked way better than that.
Aside from the graphics, oh joy, another FPS. Yeah, I'll pass.

Dear Daniel Craig,

Thank you for your prompt reply. I apologize for my over-zealousness. Perhaps I was a little bit too hasty. However, I must question why you were so willing to go along with what was such an obviously terrible turn for the franchise. And why could you not at least dye your hair? Though in your defense I would rather have a blond 007 than another ginger like Roger Moore. Please do not accept any more roles as 007 unless they revise the scripts to the point at which you are actually permitted to play James Bond. Also please tell Matt Damon not to try to act anymore.

-Yours,
ReiverCorrupter

I was just about to type a sarcastic, well thought out response and then I see someone has beaten me to it.

The comments here are really suffering from Yahtzee Fever.... Brought about by a bunch of wannabe-Yahtzee's. It's cool to be negative. Yes it's on Wii so pointing out that the graphics aren't shiny is like saying the sky is blue and the grass is green. Add to that no one has *actually* played the game...

If any of you dolts want the original Goldeneye, go and find it. It's not that hard. Then you can sit there and have a little smug party all by yourself for 5 minutes, all the while realising how badly the game has dated.

As an end point Pierce Brosnan was a wanker and the films were about on par with the original Get Smart series for the amount of HAM they had stuffed into it. Daniel Craig brings the Connery back!

Dear ReiverCorrupter

In answer to your question they offered me a vast sum of money, and, to be honest, I needed it. I was in TOMB RAIDER for God's sake! And did I get a sex scene with Angelina Jolie? Did I fuck. Now I've got more money and ass than I know what to do with. If they want to remake James Bond, and pay me by the fistful then let them. I've got my pick of classy Oscar bait roles now, and even if they replace me I can ride the whole 007 ticket for the rest of my career. Sean Connery was just some git with a Scottish accent, now he's been knighted, and it sure as hell wasn't for Highlander II.

If the studio wants to save on gadgets and hollowed out Volcano lair sets then that's fine and dandy by me. Also if they don't want to dye my locks then that just means I don't have to spend an hour in Makeup with tinfoil in my hair while someone touches up my roots.

Also a lot of people have tried to stop Matt Damon, but to be honest he throws such good Wrap parties that, to be honest, it's worth just sticking him in movies. You should try his Potato Salad, its to die for.

Hugs and Kisses

Daniel Craig

P.S. To thank you for your helpful career advice here's a signed picture of myself looking smug.

I'd be pretty interested in this if I had a Wii... and it's the first Wii title that's made me say that. However, I wouldn't be interested enough to buy it on release day; the levels seem different enough (as if you can tell from that trailor, but still) that it almost looks like a different game with the Goldeneye title. If it was literally just the old game with upgraded graphics (lol), a few extra animations for getting into and out of the tanks and real names on the guns I'd buy it, but soembody taking "artistic license" with the level design and plot... not worth the risk.

Oh and I'm with the "what on Earth is Daniel Craig doing here?" crowd; while I didn't particularly like the new Bond films I'm under no impression that Craig was the cause of that dislike (poor plot, long plot and badly written plot pretty much sumarises why I spent half of Casino Royal wishing I was somewhere else). On the other hand... Goldeneye's Bond is Pierce Brosnen (that's probably spelt wrong), he's the actor who played the films, that's the likeness in the origional game. Whenever a new actor comes out they don't go and dub him in to all the old films do they? So leave the dubbing out of the games too, even if they are built from scratch every time!

damn ive always been a fan of "fun and playability is greater then quality of graphics" but jeez. they are really just hoping to bank on fanboy sales aren't they.

i saw someone using oddjob in multiplayer! you noob! :p

is it just me or were they essentially advertising split screen multiplayer, a mechanic that is rarely used these days that is missed and useful but it is not something to base a game around

harvz:

dont you worry, it has a very well fleshed out single player and online multiplayer, but when the nostalgics think goldeneye, they think splitscreen

I got it just a few minutes ago.

HEY GUISE! No one's played it yet, so let's all say it's a bad game that should feel bad, even though none of us have seen anything more than a few trailers! That way, we can all feel extra smug when our friends buy it and it turns out to be pretty decent, despite our predictions!

YEEEAAAAH!

You, sir, win at the internet for life.

Personally, I will get this game, and love the hell out of it. I loved (and still play) the original GoldenEye, and, while this is different, at least they are making an EFFORT.

If you wanted a port of the original, why not just play the original? I understand some of you might not have it anymore, but what's stopping you from going to a swap meet, and buying a ~$10 used copy?

Second, just because Craig is in it doesn't automatically make it bad. Sure, I would have LIKED to see Brosnan there, but his likeness is trademarked (or something) by HIM. And Brosnan did not want to return to the 007 series. Besides that, as others before me have said, Craig did not make Bond "gritty", the writers/producers did. Craig just plays him.

Third, there is a reason why the game is a Wii exclusive, and why it is VERY different from the original. The original GoldenEye was a N64 EXCLUSIVE. Nintendo has SOME rights to it. However, Rare made the game, but is now owned by Microsoft. Nintendo and Microsoft would have both released a port of GoldenEye, but Nintendo would get the original, while Microsoft would get an HD port. Not to mention, the rights to the 007 game franchise belonged to EA, and now to Activision. Just getting GoldenEye out again is a freakin' miracle. Of course, Rare owns the levels of the original, so Eurocom can't just do those levels.

All in all, I'm gonna get this game. It looks fun to play, and a good game in its own right.

'Guys, thinking up new ideas is hard!'

'I know - let's sell an old game again that people liked!'

'Yeah! We're sure to make money!'

Shadowsafter:
Don't let nostalgia fool you, my friends! Look closely and then watch the trailer for your current favorite xbox/Ps3 Game. THIS game is nothing short of laughable compared to the xbox and ps3's efforts. If this is the best the wii has to offer, that thing can keep gathering dust in the corner...

Oh good sir, you have opened my eyes! well, actually... you have opened my eyes to the fact a WII EXCLUSIVE has worse graphics than an Xbox/PS3/PC release would, and literally fuck all else, since you have nothing to say about the gameplay. Shock horror, the graphics aren't as good. Who gives a flying fuck about that? I wish this was coming out on other platforms, because it looks, genuinely like some modern-day fun with the old-school shooter formula.

mindlesspuppet:
It's being made for the Wii... so it looks dated before it's even released. Seems pretty pointless.

Plus Daniel Craig ruins it.

Oh, and who genuinely cares if we don't have the same old low-res face of Pierce Brosnan in this title? does the presence of Daniel Craig really make it worse? what's next, complaining that the dialogue isn't done entirely in text like the wonderful dream-like magic days of old?

They already appear to have taken ludicrous liberties with the rest of the game, and Craig isn't the one who decided that new Bond should be grittier, is he? No, he's just the actor who plays him as the people in charge want. It's a shame that some Bond purists direct the hate at this guy when he's just the face of something the studio decided on. It's not like Craig was the one who said "hey, let's make it all serious and dark!" he was just the guy who got the call that said "Hey Daniel, we're making Bond all serious and dark! want in?" and he said "being a professional actor, I will accept this role, because it pays well and I think I can handle what they're asking of me".

/rant

First before I begin my rebuttal of your damned ignorant rant, I want to say this: Go **** yourself.

Now that that is out of the way, let's talk about how stupid you are.

Do you really think you can post this as your opening, and then expect a response to that?

No, seriously. As harsh, foul-mouthed and arrogant as the rest of your post may be, I'm not even going to go so far as to address the points it makes. Not when the points are made in a way that outright state "YOU ARE RETARDED AND I AM NOT! HERE IS WHY!". Would you really debate something with someone like that in real life? You do realise that an opinion is, you know, entirely subjective?

I hate to be one of those condescending sods who think they safeguard this community, but seriously: proceeding to scream insults at someone who disagrees with you (as opposed to say, just politely discussing something) not only immediately invalidates everything you say, but will also get you in trouble before long. It's happened to the rest of us, it'll happen to you as well. So do yourself a favour if you came here for some real discussion: Just discuss things and don't bellow mindless threats at those who express a view different from yourself. That's not a thread, that's just common sense.

But if you're going to carry on this way, then any response you post will probably just read "HAHAH YOUR WRONG DUMBASS". But that's fine. Talk to people however you want. In the end, it's not like anyone has to listen to you.

The N64 classic on the wii?... it looks like it's stillon the N64!
