Did You Know?


The game was originally planned as a Super Nintendo title. 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.

Guard: So Mr. Bond, what do you know about the theft of the GoldenEye?
James Bond: Ourumov stole it. He's a traitor.
Guard: Nonsense, Mr. Bond. General Ourumov is a hero of the Soviet Union.
James Bond: Perhaps he was one, but he has betrayed you now

James Bond: Natalya has done nothing wrong. She knows what happened at Severnaya.

Still As Good
3 July 2000 | by (Edmonton) – See all my reviews

A Great Game, very enjoyable (if you know how to use it), recommended (espesially for Bond fans), all that old good comment review stuff. Let me add it is much better than the 80s game of Octopussy, where James Bond is a stick figure and all you do is scale trains. I'm sure Pierce Brosnan is proud, and Ian Fleming is chuckling in his grave. I bet he never knew how much his life-inspired character would influence the world- and how much violence would be added to it. I think he'd be amused by the latter, however.
