Did You Know?


The game was intended as a on-rail shooter. But the creators began to experiment by letting the player move around freely. After awhile, the team decided that a move around shooter made the game much better. See more »


The idle animations for the guards with pistols were not changed from the ones for the guards with automatic, two-handed weapons. Guards with pistols will begin idle animations in the two-handed rifle-holding pose, then will end the animation by coming to rest in that same position, but then snapping back to their original, hands-at-the-sides pose.

so far unbeaten.
16 December 1999 | by See all my reviews

Quite simply, Goldeneye is the single greatest N64 game to date. The learning curve is just about perfect, and you'll still be playing it with your friends months on, as the multiplayer mode is nothing short of exceptional.

The system for acquiring cheats for once requires some degree of skill, rather than simply knowing which buttons to press, and the challenge of Aztec on 00 agent level is astonishing.

All in all - it's the best game I've ever played on the N64
