GoldenEye 007 is a 2010 first-person shooter video game developed by Eurocom and published by Activision for the Nintendo Wii video game console, and the Nintendo DS handheld game console.[6] It is a reimagining of the critically acclaimed 1997 video game of the same name, which was developed by Rare for the Nintendo 64. Both games are, in turn, based on the 1995 James Bond film GoldenEye. The game was officially announced by Nintendo at their E3 2010 conference presentation.[7] A Nintendo DS version is also in development and will be produced by n-Space. The game will be released on November 2nd, 2010, as will be another Bond game, Blood Stone.

Development

Although Pierce Brosnan starred as Bond in GoldenEye and was featured in the 1997 game, current Bond actor Daniel Craig's likeness and voice will be featured in the game. Judi Dench, who did portray M in GoldenEye, will voice her character. The main Characters have all been remodeled as to prevent confusion from the original GoldenEye 007. [8]

David Arnold, the composer of every subsequent Bond film since Tomorrow Never Dies, will compose the game's score.[9] The game's script is penned by Bruce Feirstein, the writer of the original 1995 GoldenEye film,[1] who has described several changes made to update the story in the fifteen years since its release; for example, Alec Trevelyan's motivations have changed as the character's backstory involving a Lienz Cossack father would make Trevelyan seventy-one years old in 2010, whilst Valentin Zukovsky no longer has any connection to the KGB. Feirstein said a sequence of the game is set in a Dubai arms fair.[10] Rory Kinnear will reprise his role from Quantum of Solace as Bill Tanner, M's Chief of Staff.

Features

[[File:|thumb|left|GoldenEye 007 will feature re-imagined areas from the 1997 title]] While GoldenEye 007 is essentially a re-imagining of the popular Nintendo 64 title, the game does have some noticeable differences. Levels have been altered to reflect the game's modified story. According to Craig Harris of IGN, "GoldenEye still retains the basics of GoldenEye's story, but retells it in a way that makes sense with Daniel Craig's interpretation of James Bond".[7] Likewise, the game features modern game design techniques to coincide with other modern first person shooters, such as destructible environments and online multiplayer.[11]

Eurocom has also added a few updated features as well as some original features that were in the original Bond game. Instead of the watch, players will now use a mobile cell phone to scan documents, take photos, and communicate with MI6. The original GoldenEye 007 featured a cheat menu, Eurocom has confirmed the return of the cheat menu, which will be available from the start. All of the classic cheats will return except a few like DK mode (Big Head Mode).[12] The game has also updated the Al-Bot system previously used in Quantum of Solace. Each computer player will have its own Al-Bot system to make each computer player different and challenging. This game is one of a few Wii games to allow use of several different control schemes. GoldenEye 007 can be played with the Wii Remote with Nunchuk, Wii Zapper, Classic Controller, Classic Controller Pro, or the Nintendo GameCube controller, potentially allowing four players to play in different styles simultaneously. Goldeneye 007 will also give players the ability to peer around cover by tilting the Nuchuck, but this feature is only implemented in the Wii Remote and Nuchuck control scheme. An additional bundle featuring a golden Classic Controller Pro will also be available at retail[13].

The game will also include 25 confirmed weapons, all of them closely based on their real names. In the debut trailer, the following weapons are seen with their simple names: Walther P99, Walther WA 2000, Tokarev TT-33, FN P90, AK-47, Heckler & Koch G36C, SVD Dragunov, and FN SCAR.

Multiplayer

GoldenEye 007 will include 8-player online multiplayer, in addition to four player split screen.[14]

Multiplayer will include characters from the single player campaign, such as James Bond and Alec Trevelyan, plus numerous classic Bond character including Jaws, Francisco Scaramanga, Oddjob, Ernst Stavro Blofeld, Baron Samedi, Rosa Klebb, Red Grant and Julius No. It will also include 5 enhanced levels from the original GoldenEye 007 as well as the new game itself, including the Archives, and Facility. Additionally, Online Multiplayer will include XP progression, unlockables and multipliers.[15]
