Activision had an interesting balancing act on its hands with Goldeneye. It knew that this was a nostalgia title for the Nintendo 64 crowd, yet it had to be wary of “copying” anything from the Rare-developed 1997 title of the same name for legal reasons. So the company goes back to the source material the film, that is, replaces Pierce Brosnan with Daniel Craig, and builds an entirely new game — yet all the while hoping it rides its name recognition right off the shelves. “Somebody’s remaking Goldeneye! Remember Goldeneye? Goldeneye!”
Well shit, that just about kills the game for me, I was under the impression is was a straight up remake of the original, but with new features and other cool new stuff.Â Perhaps this will be just as good as the original game?
