Officially revealed this week, GoldenEye 007: Reloaded is Activision’s latest attempt at capturing gamers’ attention with the James Bond franchise. But can it deliver?
Based on this reveal trailer and the first batch of screenshots, I’m not entirely sold. Granted, I’ve not seen or played a single second of the game for myself, so the verdict is still out. But if these first glimpses of the game are supposed to get me excited, I’m finding it hard to muster more than a shrug.
It doesn’t look bad, really — I’m sure developer Eurocom is more than capable of delivering a decent shooter experience. But with so many other first-person shooters hitting the market this fall (including Activision’s own monster, Modern Warfare 3), does the 007 universe truly have enough to offer that it’ll be worth our time?
