Did You Know?


The opening screen of the game is a parody of a BBFC Cinema Classification screen seen before every classified film in the UK. This is most obvious where the red-outlined white circle symbol containing the red number '4' (stated to mean the game is suitable for 1-4 players) looks very similar to the BBFC's '12' or '15' certificate. Coincidentally, the UK cinema version of GoldenEye (1995) (which was slightly cut by the BBFC) was certified '12', and the uncut DVD version released in 2006 was certified '15'. See more »

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
