lancervhead's review of Golden Eye 007

“As far as first person perspective shoot-em-ups go...”

★★★★★

Good Points
Excellent playability, easy controls and totally addictive!

Bad Points
Graphics a little dated now but this does not affect the game play at all.

General Comments
As far as first person perspective shoot-em-ups go this is ranked among the top 5 (along with Doom and Kill Zone). We had all seen what was possible with this type of game a few years earlier but Goldeneye took the basic premise further, adding mission objectives to a film environment we were familiar with. The game is actually quite difficult throughout its many varied levels, but this should not put anybody off as when you are playing it you sense that victory is within your grasp the more you learn from your mistakes.

The graphics are a little dated, with characters having photo simulated faces mapped onto their heads and quite blocky body parts, but this is a small flaw in an otherwise great game.

Where Goldeneye really comes into its own is in the Deathmatch option. This allows up to four players to fight in a level of your choice (on a four-way split screen) with weapons also chosen by the players. Anyone familiar with the Doom game with the same option will know how much fun this is (planting mines then watching the split screen as mate walks onto it being a favourite of mine). Add to this the option to choose characters from nearly all the bond films and you'll find it hard to play any other game.

This game is proof that film tie in games can be brilliant! Goldeneye is ace!
