GoldenEye 007 (N64)
Advantages: super gameplay
Disadvantages: really none
In the last few days before Christmas, I am having memories coming flooding back of playing this game at Christmas with my brother. I remember when he got his N64 and the first game he got was Goldeneye. In the game, you are James Bond, of course, setting out to complete a series of missions in true double-o- agent style.
Goldeneye is probably the best computer game I have ever played. Not just on the N64, but on any console. In terms of playability, this beats everything else hands down. To say it is addictive would be an understatement. It is not so much the single player mode which hooked people, but the split screen multiplayer, which was stupendous fun.
First off though, single mode; you are Bond as he revisits locations from the film and solves puzzles. Along the way you have to avoid the bad guys and shoot them, using a choice of weaponry. Bond has his trusty PPK, but there are some amazing weapons to collect as you progress like remote mines, missile launchers and if you don't fancy getting too violent you can simply walk up to an enemy and slap them until they die. Genius!
The graphics are pretty hot and the controls easy to master, I am pretty useless with controlling and even I managed it quite well. You can set difficulty levels too which is great for beginners and those who wish to return to the game and improve their skills.
The two player is great fun. You get to choose a location, then go head to head in a shoot off. You must seek out your opponent then destroy them before they get you. This is made even more fun by having a selection of characters to pick from. How about being Baron Samedi or Oddjob as you race through a library!
The music is tense and hooky, the loading is quick and everything just runs like clockwork. Quite simply a wonderful game that will give you hours of pleasure.
