sweet, Goldeneye is back, they've redone it polished it revamped it and...it's on the Wii

(at least there's no friend code needed)

Mmm I am somewhat convince into buying this. I never play the original one due to not having the N64 and when I first saw previews of it, I felt it was just a remake and was made for nostalgia. Now that I see that it's alter quite a bit I made buy it (from the look of it, it clearly out shine The Conduit) although there is some others games I want to buy first (Donkey Knog Country Retrun and Golden Sun Dark Dawn). I guessing this will go into my xmas list.

i find it hilarious that

a) there's a good shooter on the Wii
b) there's a good shooter on the Wii and it's james bond, the one franchise little kids shouldn't be into on the console little kids are on
c) the fact that the reason this game is good is because it uses as you said "pretty much an xbox 360 controller" instead of that wii mote crap
d) the party scene is playing Deadmau5 (at a school dance last night, i urged a request to play it by writing it horizontally in big red letters and personally handed it to the DJ, but he never played any deadmau5. my freind saw the paper, but didn't know it was me who gave him that, and he took it and drew the mouse head on it and urged the request)

i've been hearing word of golden eye and i always though they were talking about the original, i didn't know they made a new one until now, thank you for the update.

"This is as good as gaming currently gets"

You're telling me this game is as good as it currently gets?

I've lost all faith in The Escapist review staff and their ability to be objective.

I'm curious as to whether or not you're able to go to the secret island in the Dam level this time.

Not getting a Wii for this but if it was for Xbox, probably even if I would want a remake of the reall one instead.

mmm yeah... I think I'll pass on this one.

PlasticTree:

Can I play the game with a normal Gamecube controller, or do I really need to pick up the Classic Controller Pro?

I wasn't able to test this specifically but it says that you can play with the old Wavebird controller for the Gamecube.

It's a good game that I would recommend to any owner of the Wii, and that is the very definition of 5 stars for me.

Not perfect, but it's an enjoyable experience all around.

Why isn't it good? have you played it?

Thanks. Well, then I suppose it's time to force my two brothers into a game of James Bond Nightfire once again!

You feel comfortable saying this title is as good as gaming currently gets? I highly, highly doubt you can't name an FPS you enjoyed more or thought was better than this - and if you can, this game clearly isn't as good as it gets.

I never said it wasn't a good game.

Daniel Graig!?!?! That RUINED it right there.

This is NOT what we wanted Nintendo....we wanted a PORT....NOT a remake.

For Shame.

No. I will not believe that this "remake" is better than the original. The original was almost a perfect stealth, shooter, thing. All they had to do was up the graphics and make it work on a controller nowadays. But NO! They had to make it so you didn't switch through sixteen different weapons to get to your mines and NO! you don't have to slap fights but instead it's all ONE BUTTON! Which is the downfall of a lot of games. And the campaign was amazing in the original and now it looks like nothing.

I'm sure you guys will be having fun in the office playin the multiplayer maps

-M

I played the game today and I gotta say, without the gold controller that it comes with, the game can't be played effectively.
Other than that, it's pretty nice and makes me nostalgic for the old one on the N64.

Not a huge fan of the motion controls. I find them extremely hard to use. Think I'm just going to use my gamecube controller. I for one am pretty fed up with the whole wii motion stuff. Am I the only one who thinks it's not innovative and just a pain the ass? Honestly if nintendos next gen console is heavily reliant on motion, like the wii is, I won't be buying it.

The James Bond remake offers the best multiplayer on the Wii and an updated campaign.

Did you say "Dame and Judy Dench"? You do know that Dame is a prefix title, right? Not just someone else?
