Wouldn't real-life GoldenEye just be the original movie?

Usually, weekends at Dtoid are extremely slow, but we were so chock-full of stories over the past couple of days that I held off on posting this video. I only just now remembered it was in my inbox. I don't see how I could f...

Review: GoldenEye 007: Reloaded photo
Review: GoldenEye 007: Reloaded
by Matthew Razak

Last year, James Bond returned to videogames in both GoldenEye 007 for the Wii and Blood Stone for the PS3 and 360. In a change from the standard outcome when a franchise hits multiple platforms, the Wii game was the one that was more polished and more fun to play. Even more surprising is the fact that GoldenEye 007 was a perfectly satisfactory follow-up to its namesake and by far one of the best FPS experiences on the Wii.

Of course, even before GoldenEye 007 came out, people were crying foul that it was a Wii exclusive, mostly because people like to cry fowl whenever they get the chance. All those fowl criers can stop now that the game has come to both the PS3 and the 360 in glorious hi-def with a new engine, extra content, and a more robust online component.

Is it worth picking up if you've played the Wii version? Or if you didn't, is it worth picking up in a holiday market crowded with other shooters?

Hands-on with GoldenEye 007: Reloaded's multiplayer

Like most, I am a huge fan of GoldenEye 64. It was my gateway drug into the wonderful world of first-person shooters. Hundreds of hours were wasted in "slappers only" multiplayer matches, causing the frame rate to come to a ...

Activision announces GoldenEye 007: Reloaded for PS3/360
by Jim Sterling

Activision has officially announced GoldenEye 007: Reloaded for PS3 and Xbox 360. It will take the Wii remake of the classic N64 Game, run it through a brand new engine to deliver HD visuals, and support the PlayStation Move controller. 

The remake will include a new gameplay mode, "Mi6 Ops Missions." These challenge levels are distinct from the campaign and provide players with a series of Assault, Elimination, Stealth and Defence objectives. 

Naturally, multiplayer will be a big part of the experience, with 16-player online matches and a whole batch of new weapons, maps, modes and characters. Don't worry -- the classic four-player split-screen mode will be included for old schoolers!

It's scheduled for Fall 2011. You can get a first glimpse of it on the official site.

Review: Blood Stone photo
Review: Blood Stone
by Matthew Razak

GoldenEye 007 for the Wii wasn’t the only Bond game to come out this holiday season. No, the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 also got their dose of Bond in the form of an original Bond adventure called Blood Stone. Since the day these two games were announced it was easy to find people excited for both. We know that GoldenEye turned out great, but not everyone has a Wii, and Blood Stone is a different take on the franchise anyway.

Does Blood Stone enter into the ranks of other quality Bond games like the aforementioned GoldenEye, or does it fall short of the high standards its protagonist conjures up? I finally got the time to charge through the game and can easily tell you that the only reason you would ever choose this game over GoldenEye is if you didn’t own a Wii.

So if you’re one of the five people in America in that boat, please read on to see if Blood Stone is for you.

Review: GoldenEye 007 (Wii)
by Matthew Razak

Let’s get this out of the way first: no game will ever be GoldenEye 007 for the Nintendo 64. The unique combination of advancements in technology, controls, gaming and culture are not going to collide like that ever again. It was a revolution in gaming and those come along very, very rarely, and usually not in the form of a licensed videogame.

This fact won’t keep companies from trying to cash in on the name, however. EA already did it when they had the Bond license with their relentlessly middle-of-the-road GoldenEye: Rogue Agent and now Activision is taking its shot with the Wii version of GoldenEye 007. Calling it a Wii version is a complete misnomer, however, as this is an entirely different game with very little actual connection to the original GoldenEye 007 other than key plot scenarios.

Taking that fact into account and the previously discussed fact that no game will ever be the N64 version of the game, let’s let GoldenEye 007 on the Wii stand or fall on its own accord as we dig through it below.

Bond's classic villains strut their stuff

One of the things serverly lacking from almost every Bond game after GoldenEye 007 was the ability to play as some of Bond's classic nemesis. Did it make much of a difference unless you were being a douche and playing as Odd...
