But let's be honest. It looks absolutely terrible. Surely something with this kind of gamer love buzz could have some TLC applied to it, but Activision is going to brute force them N64 textures right down your throat, baby.

Less characters than the N64 version? Aiming high I see, Activision.

Its too bad you're still a prick with a stupid gimmick.

I could forgive the shite graphics if there was even a chance it would have good, smooth online multiplay. But it won't.

I think it looks as good as The Conduit and a number of other FPS, that and its not complete yet, its only in alpha. I have faith in it, I know its popular to take a shit all over Activision, but I don't think this is one they are going to screw up.

Honestly, I'm buying it no matter what, so I'll reserve judgement until I see more.

In terms of it being Wii exclusive, a thought... Activision famously took a bath on 'Quantum of Solace', which they *fully* chalk up to the fact that it was very similar to and released around the same time as World at War. In an effort to avoid the same issue, GoldenEye is on Wii. Not only do they not have a conflict, they also have a 'shooter' game releasing on Wii (which doesn't get CoD games day-one) the same time CoD is dominating 360/PS3, maximixing Activision's November sales potential.

Honestly, though, if this is why the Live remake was scuttled, I'm not entirely happy.

I didn't think it looked that bad, and we're getting it through youtube goggles, highly compressed, so maybe it looks better then it looked there. I guess we'll find out. I should note that I have never even seen the original game.

I am worried, the last bond game was a barely average fps. I am really worried about this game.

Blasphemy! Daily Goldeneye + Mario Kart 64 battles after school back in the day was the best shit ever. I really want to see a video of this.

I'm guessing Activision is trying to somehow get overpriced DLC involved on the Wii.

For the record, I'd much rather have Craig than Brosnan. What a horrible choice for Bond he was, but, then, really the problem was that the franchise should have been shut down long before either of them. Certainly before Roger Moore, give or take a movie or two.

Here's the thing, Brosnan was Bond in Goldeneye. I suppose you would just have Brosnan airbrushed out of the movie and replaced with Craig too right? Pretend Brosnan never acted as Bond in "Goldeneye".
That's what Activision is close to doing with Craig as Bond in this. It's a complete slap in the face to real Goldeneye game and movie fans.

Bullshit.

This isn't Perfect Dark, or any other remake that has come before. This is a movie licence and, therefore, will always have these problems. Even if they re-released the original GoldenEye, I guarantee you that Brosnan would've been out, along with the rest of the cast. Actor licencing deals are tricky, and wouldn't have applied past that initial release. If they wanted any of the likenesses for those people (Bean, Janssen, Coltrane), too, they would've needed completely new deals, which likely wasn't financially reasonable.

This is also a trickier situation because Brosnan is, technically, the first Bond actor to be, ahem, 'let go' from the series. Everyone else made a decision on their own, but Brosnan was basically told he wasn't coming back. So, you have a guy that likely isn't very happy with the franchise, and a current actor who is hugely popular and has already signed away his likeness rights.

Whether you like or not, this, or any other re-release of GoldenEye, was never going to feature Pierce Brosnan. Me, I'd much rather have Craig than the nameless Bond of Agent Under Fire. So, look, stop with the whole 'slap in the face of *real* fans' train, because that's not what replacing Brosnan is. You want to get on them for making this instead of an HD re-release of the original? By all means, I can get behind that.

The Brosnan thing, though? Complaining for the sake of complaining.

I know it's a Wii exclusive, but here's to hoping it's just a timed exclusive and that it'll get a proper release on the PS3/360. I was a Nintendo owner from NES to Wii, but I just don't feel compelled to play the system anymore when I've got my PS3 sitting here with a backlog of games 10 deep.

Either way, I'll still at least give it a try on the Wii. If it brings back the great nostalgia of the initial release (Grenade launchers in the Complex!), I'll give it some playtime, for sure.

I'm still of the opinion that this is the result of a deal made during the whole GoldenEye HD remake debacle. From what I read, Nintendo was balking at a lot of it, and Activision wanted to keep them happy, since they were the biggest company. It wouldn't surprise me in the least if Activision looked at it and figured they could make more money doing this than letting MS release the HD remake, all while keeping Nintendo happy. That seems to be the bottom line here... keeping Nintendo happy. Plus, Activision already has billion-dollar shooter franchises on the other two consoles, so I view this as a way to get a piece of the Wii pie.

So, I wouldn't expect it to show up anywhere else. Looking at it, they'd have basically needed to make two seperate versions to do that, and there isn't much of sign of it. There may be some sort of clause that states they can release it elsewhere if sales are abyssmal, but I'd say that's likely the only shot we have.

Why are people mad that Brosnan's not in it? He's NOT Bond anymore.
