Goldeneye 007: Reloaded runs through the Severnaya, guns blazing

We already gave you our thoughts on the robust multiplayer modes of the other online shooter showing up to fight this holiday season. Now, in a new walkthrough video, we're able to take a look at the singleplayer side of Goldeneye 007: Reloaded. Last time, the developers walked us through a stealthy approach to combat. Not this time. This time, they go for action, and show off the enhanced, expanded, and re-imagined level Severnaya level. It's a lot different from the one in the original Goldeneye level (which you can see videos of on YouTube for comparison), but the heart is still there...

The video highlights a number of interesting changes from the original, including the game’s “interactive” score, which helps to make it feel as though the music in Goldeneye was specifically written around the dynamic firefights, and the first-person cutscens, which replace the third-person cinematics. It also shows off a good deal of gameplay, which looks like it could be a lot of fun, even if it's not all that original.

Granted, it's essentially a remake of a remake, so we really shouldn't expect anything too remarkably groundbreaking. As long as it's enjoyable – and reminds us of countless hours spent playing the original – it will have done its job.

    Looks solid enough, but I probably won't consider it til the price has dropped.

    It looks like it plays okay, but I think the overall concept smacks of desperation. A remake of a remake of one of the few decent games based on a movie. Come on guys.

    This game reeks of mediocrity

    He got shot like a hundred times and didn't die.

    methinks he's playing on "normal". which begs the question: when did this sh*t become "normal"?

    Trust me Coop, it's fun (assuming it's of the quality of the Wii version). It's more fun as stealth than straight shooter, and the AI isn't great, but it's still a solid CoD-like campaign, but with more stealth and self control
