      1 out of 5. Not a great game

      Goldeneye rogue agent is a first person shooter on the Nintendo DS were you take on the role of Secret Agent James Bond on various missions throughout the world. The different game modes are single player, virtual training and two multiplayer modes - single card play and multi card play.

      Single player is were you single handedly fight through each mission on the maps which involves you killing every enemy in the map and reaching a point at the end. Different maps include Transit tunnel, funhouse, atlantis, moonraker, golden gate, uplink and carvers press.

      Virtual training is pretty much the same as single player were you can practice on maps you have already completed and unlock them as you progress.

      In both single player and virtual training you have the option of playing on your own or playing it wth friends. Multi card option means you both have the game and means you will be able to play more levels and different modes whereas the single card option where only one person has the game means only one game mode (deathmatch) and map will be unlocked to you's.

      The game has a little bit of customisation by giving you thirteen different skins to choose from when playing and allowing you to choose different types of guns to suit each mission. These can both be unlocked with progression through the game.

      On playing the game itself I wasn't too impressed with the graphics and the gameplay was also lacking quite a lot. For a game that looks arena based it doesn't give you random positions for enemies like other games of its type but instead has the same enemies in the same places and once the level is done you could do it again with your eyes closed.

      The controls for the game are touch screen based were you control the movement of your agent with the buttons on the left and by touching the bottom screen can control the cursor on the top screen. You then shoot with the right shoulder button. I wasn't a big fan of this setup and although it can be changed, all other modes were similar. It seemed quite awkward to move about and aim and a bit jumpy at times which isn't good for a first person shooter game.

      The game was fun when I initially bought it as the touch screen seemed a novelty thing and I thought i'd get used to the controls however I never really got used to them in the end and even when enlisting my friends to play it they didn't really like it either.

      The price is also very high for this game unless you can shop around and find a sneaky second hand version for cheap.
