There are games that, for some reason, are part of that collective imagination that puts them on a pedestal and stays there for decades without anyone daring to contradict the majority. GoldenEye 007 This is the work of Rare. A Rare in a state of grace for these years when it belonged to Nintendo and repeatedly threatened to return. Now it’s a reality and we’re asking the million dollar question: is it really that bad?
GoldenEye 007 and memories
No one will take away Tourniquet 007 its place in the Olympus of video games. Initially appearing in 1997, it came to improve the panorama of shooters recreating one of the most memorable James Bond films. A plot that had as its protagonist a system of satellites capable of destroying targets on Earth from space in the blink of an eye.
GoldenEye 007 belongs to the time of shooters which are currently unplayable because they don’t use two The sticks to move the character and control the camera, therefore, the latter had to be done with buttons, which had a Nintendo 64 gamepad that was recovered (remember) from the central piece to use the famous analog stick. A great step forward for the time.
Now, the fact that in 1997 we managed to enjoy this game and at the time it overwhelmed us with its “realism” and all the other “-isms” you can think of, does not justify that we have had to suffer the turra from those who have been calling for this game to return. Since we have Nintendo 64 emulators and increasingly powerful computers, why would anyone spend time on some sort of remaster? Well, they did.
He has aged a long time and badly
I must say in advance that I am a lover of retro. A lot. I have and I collect all the consoles and computers that have appeared in Europe since the end of the 70s, but if there is a time for which I have no particular affection, it is the beginnings of 3D . Saving PSX and Saturn, the Nintendo 64 and subsequent PS2 were responsible for countless attacks playable where 3D environments were freezing, empty and lifeless.
Watch the trailer for GoldenEye 007 reminded me that these corridors of the secret facilities could very well be those of a hospital or a residence. It does not matter. The gesture of the enemies sucks
As we tell you, love it retro don’t make us all jump through the hoops of saying that GoldenEye 007 is a great release now in 2023. This is further confirmation that some games just need to stay in memory, improving like fine wine and stop trying to rediscover them because we will find many, many faults. And with what we have on us with it (apparently) superb atomic heart, change at this stage a Ferrari for a Twingo… as I don’t want to.
By the way, did he tell you he was trolling you? long life to shooter which changed the course of the genre on consoles (wink, wink).
