Advantages: Tense and thrilling - a timeless classic with brilliant missions and mulitplayer mode.
Disadvantages: Make some more!
A great James Bond film, an absolutely incredible game.
For its time, Goldeneye was miles and miles ahead of anything else.
The designers, 'Rare' have made some other brilliant games - Banjo Kazooie, Perfect Dark and Donkey Kong to name a few. This was so successful that they've made a new Goldeneye on the Wii - which was never going to be as good!
With around 20 missions, you're skills are tested, battling against russian guards, with many, many weapons. The levels follow the film quite well, but you should not compare this to the film.
There are 3 different difficulties - Agent, Secret Agent and 00 Agent. There is also a 007 mode, where (if you win EVERYTHING) you can customise enemy health and reaction speed etc.
The gameplay is brilliant, and on the hardest level, levels are still hard to complete, as enemies get better, and there are more missions to do on each level. However, it is easy to pick up and play.
The controls are easy to use and you can pick up how to play quickly. It is useful to 'strafe' with the C left and C right buttons. You can also run quicker this way. Some guns have a zoom on the aim (holding R). You can cycle through weapons easily, and reload when you want. Ammo is on the floor as a box, or as a gun.
You cannot kill people like Trevelyan and Ourumov, as they are main characters (until you are actually meant to kill them!)
Train is a brilliant level, so is Control and Frigate.
Multiplayer mode is tense and thrilling, where you and your (up to 3 more) other friends can battle in a variety of levels. You can also choose from loads of characters including old favourites such as Oddjob and Jaws.
Also, the cheats are great! I recommend using them, as you can have so much fun with all of them. Invincibility, invisibility, turbo mode, unlimited ammo and all guns are some good ones.
This game revolutionalised FPS games - it set the standard for games to come.
The words timeless and classic are used too much, but this is definitely, DEFINITELY a timeless classic. I would highly recommend this game, and if you can get it quite cheap, then you so should.
Summary: Timeless Classic, with so much to offer. Hours and hours of fun to be had, so PLAY it!
