GoldenEye 007: Reloaded
GoldenEye 007: Reloaded Demo Out Now on Xbox Live

View author's profile

If your unsure as to whether Activision and Eurocom's reloading of the N64 classic GoldenEye is worth its weight in, well, gold, then there's a demo of GoldenEye 007: Reloaded now available from the Xbox Live Marketplace for Gold subcribers to download, offering up a wee portion of the game to play through.

Apparently the demo gives you a section from the opening Arkhangelsk level, which usually concludes with the death-defying bungee jump. In the demo, you can't get that far however, but it's still worth downloading if you're considering squandering some cash on the game, but want to find out if it's any good. That's what demos are for, see?

You can download the GoldenEye 007: Reloaded demo from the XBL Marketplace now. Add it to your download queue here.

[Thanks, Chris]

I'm not sure why they think they can bottle lightning again after the runaway success of the first one.

Everyone tries to 'bottle lighting again' if the first was a runaway success.

It's just that they have to keep it in context. What was good and revolutionary back then might not be applicable to today.

Even if it's super quality remake I still find it way too pricey. Should've released it on XBLA/GOD for, say, 1600 ms points, then I'd buy it for sure.

@14 yeah that's before they caught on that us poor suckers would buy their games without having a sniff of it.

People really ride Golden Eye's dick don't they? Was it a great game? Eh, sure... sure it was. Personally, I never cared much for it, but back in the N64 days, I played my FPS games on PC and the N64 was for Conker, No Mercy and WM2000.

Remember Perfect Dark? All the swooning over it? Then when it was released on XBLA, people hated it. Why? Cause it was NEVER THAT GOOD!

@19 I have to disagree with you there, the amount of hours I sank into the N64 version was unimaginable; it truly was one of 'the' great games.

However I have to agree with your No Mercy comment; the greatest wrestling game of all time along with Royal Rumble on the SNES (the AI in ladder matches really did take no mercy!)

I can save you all the speculation. I own it and can tell you for a fact that the only worthwhile mode in Single Player campaign. Mi6 Ops is boring, and the MP is so laggy, it's unplayable. I swear, Nightfire on GameCube ran smoother in 4 player split screen.

@21 Now that was a good game. Reloaded was just plain awful to me. I was hoping for another Blood Stone type, but that obviously didn't happen.

Hey, crack smoker, lay off the crack. I dunno who you're speaking for when you say people hated the Perfect Dark re-release (btw, this Goldeneye is a remake, not a re-release), but I didn't hate it. None of my friends who got it hated it. And unless Im mistaken...

nope, critics and user reviews dont hate it.


Activisions games were pushed to the bottom of the priority pile a while ago. This year I passed on Goldeneye and one very well known IP for the first time (every year I've bought 'that game', beaten it on Veteran and traded it back in). People always say 'speak out with your wallet' and Im trying to do that. If I pick up Goldeneye, itll be used for 20 bucks sometime in 2012.

@25 he means its not a remake of the n64 version. Its a remake of the game that has nothing to do with the n64. Goldeneye wii. I think

Saw gameplay from it, totally ruined the original, should've ust kept the original gameplay with better graphics, heck, i would buy it even if it had it's old graphics. Why change what's not broken?

Decent game but not worth definitely not worth $60. I'll look for it on the cheap in the future.

This game isn't worth buying for two reasons, there isn't a gold 'R' on the cover, and it's published by Activison.

@26 The Wii version was a remake of the N64 version... This article even says it's a remake. He's trying to say that I haven't played Goldeneye on the N64. Obviously I left it sealed and refused to put the cartridge in >.>

@23 I personally didn't care for Bloodstone but it's a million times better than this slop. I was REALLY hoping for another Quantum of THAT'S an awesome Bond game with amazing MP.

Save your time, Downloaded the deamo and this is one of the worst FPS for the xbox this year. It was good back on the Wii but here the graphics are sub-par it dosent feel very fluid or realistic (No recoil on any guns) which just adds to the pile of small experience breakers like bodies disapering after a few seconds.

Maybe a bargin bin pick up or a rental but thats about it.
