Probably the top multiplayer game of all time. I think it helped bring gaming to a wider audience and out of the nerd closet. Now whether or not that was a good thing or not...

This for sure one of the great N64 games. Multiplayer wise it was a dream to play but the single player was not very good. Honestly how often do I have enough people over to play this anymore. The answer, never. I am giving this a 4 star ranking purely for the nostalgia factor of yesteryear.

I don't even want to think about the many hours I spent playing this in multiplayer. As far as I'm concerned this is still the best local vs. multiplayer out there - if only the one player game was as good. So much fun, I feel like I need to break this out again just to relive the memories.

One of the best video games of all time. This game defined the first person shooter after Quake and Doom almost killed it. I still remember when i first bought this game and was blown away by the smoke coming from the bullet holes in the wall. Something I will never forget. The N64 was worth buying just for this game.

The First FPS to Achieve Mediocrity

Prior to “GoldenEye 007,” the first-person shooter (FPS) was largely the domain of PC gaming. I gave the genre what I consider to be a fair shake, as I played “Doom,” “Quake II,” “Heretic,” “Hexen,” and “Witchaven” on PC way back when they were new. I tried to like the genre, but just couldn’t see what was so great about it.

When the 5th Generation of consoles began, it became apparent that console hardware was approaching something vaguely resembling parity to PCs (of course, consoles still remained static for 5+ years while PCs required annual or bi-annual upgrades to stay up-to-date). Thus every developer in the Western world jumped at the chance to start dumping their trash on consoles as well as Windows.

Thus “GoldenEye 007” was born. As a tie-in game for the movie of the same ...

The FPS That Others Can Only Try to Be

This game alone made me a fan of the FPS genre. Goldeneye's wide variety of levels and weapons and familiar feel from the movies kept me interested in the story and not just going from point A to point B shooting enemies. The challenge of unlocking cheats and beating the advanced modes kept my playing for hours and hours.

I may not be in the norm on this, but I thought the 'C' buttons for strafing and tilting up and down gave this game great play control. Sniping was easy and fun, and small amount of auto-aim gave everyone a fighting chance.

Multi-player put this game over the top. Goldeneye took advantage of the 4 player option on the N64. My friends and I in high school would play this for hours and hours on weekends. They claimed I knew where they would spawn, which could b...
