In 1997 GoldenEye was released for the Nintendo 64, this game received overwhelming praise and became very popular, therefore it is no surprise that a remake is coming to the Wii, however recent multiplayer footage I came across left me less than impressed.
Obviously a lot has changed since the 1997 release, at the end of this post you can see a video showing the multiplayer combat mode which features in the 2010 Wii version.
The video in my opinion is very disappointing, obviously we weren’t expecting great graphics, however there are some other fundamental problems which I think will frustrate even the most understanding Nintendo gamers out there.
The video shows poor framerate and poor physics, however the biggest problem in my opinion is the aiming system, most people are used to a dual analog stick setup, one for walking forwards, backwards, left and right, and the other for looking around, I have no hands-on experience with the game but I very much doubt that this old school setup will be popular today, what do you think?
We have embedded the gameplay video below, however to see it at a higher resolution check out GameTrailer.
Does this gameplay video put you off GoldenEye 007 for the Nintendo Wii?
