GoldenEye 007 returns to a Nintendo console as an exclusive, updated version of the 1995 film. Featuring a slightly altered storyline written by screenwriter Bruce Feirstein, who co-wrote the film's screenplay, GoldenEye for Wii adds completely new levels, alternate locales, destructible environments, and even a new Bond: the original film's Pierce Brosnan is replaced by the likeness and voice of Daniel Craig. Each level can be played in different ways, depending on your style. Those who enjoy stealth can attempt to slink through areas unseen, while those who prefer a more direct approach can engage enemies with guns blazing. Bond will be able to use 25 different weapons in the game, from assault rifles and rocket launchers to proximity mines and smoke grenades.
Like the original GoldenEye on N64, multiplayer support is a key component. Eight classic Bond characters, such as Jaws and Oddjob, are playable across ten maps and three main game types. Matches can be further customized with a choice of 17 modifiers. Up to eight players can compete online, earning experience points to unlock gadgets, perks, and weapons, while up to four can challenge each other via split-screen display. Multiple controller configurations are supported as well, including the Wii Remote and Nunchuk, Classic Controller, GameCube controller, and even the Wii Zapper. Two versions of the game are available: a standalone release and a limited edition that includes a gold colored Classic Controller Pro. ~ Scott Alan Marriott, All Game Guide
