The names Bond…..Basildon Bond…..no, hang on! that ain't right! One sec while i sort my papers……

Right. Sorted. Now, being a Bond fan, I had to snap up this game as soon as I got my N64. And I haven't regretted a moment of it. Its fast, fluid, has graphics that stand up even to today, and follows the plot of the movie closely. From the infiltration of the Arkhangelsk Chemical Weapons Facility right up to the final confrontation on the Radar Cradle, you experience every breath taking moment of the movie. With loads of weapons on offer, intuitive controls, bonus levels, a cheat mode that brings hilarity when you use the invincibility and all weapons cheat together(use the tank shells!) and an excellent multiplayer game bolted onto the side, GoldenEye 'is quite simply brilliant' ((c) Dave Darling). Ask anyone who has or had an N64 what they're favorite game is, and they will respond with GoldenEye. It has had that much of an influence that people still play it today. In fact…..ooo, look over there! Is that Sam Fox? (runs away to play GoldenEye!!!!)
