GoldenEye remake will feature 'much tougher' opponents

If you want to beat the upcoming Wii GoldenEye remake, you may need a sharp eye. According to Nintendo, it's going to be bigger, better, and badder than the N64 classic.

In the latest Nintendo Week, producer Dawn Pinkney said, "The enemies are much tougher opponents, because obviously things have moved on since 1997. They're a lot more physical this time around, so they're going to come up, they're going to melee you, they're going to kick you, as well, if you're crouched. They use cover really intelligently."

Sounds like they motion-captured the bullies at my high school.

In addition to improved AI technology, Activision went with a tougher, more action-ey James Bond presentation to mesh with Daniel Craig's new, more ass-kicking portrayal of Bond.

"Daniel Craig's Bond is completely different. He's so brutal, and physical, and agile and that was really exciting because we were able to bring that into the gameplay. You're vaulting through the environment... you're punching enemies, you can punch glass, you can vault through glass."

Bond smash!

    @db1331 That'd exactly the same way I feel. Maybe just because the original was such a feat on the N64, but this new one just doesn't feel as special. For example, my favorite memories of the original was totally perks, XP, and classes (that's sarcasm, there). There's updating a game for modern times, then there's completely forgetting your roots.

    I enjoyed this game back in the day but that was when I was like 8 years old. When shooters were still young. After playing Bad company 2 and halo reach I don't think I will be getting any other shooters.

    Improved AI on a 13 year old game! My mind was just blown.

    I was hoping the enimies wouldn't be the same as the original...

    @db1331 The same feeling seems to be present here. Did we love the original? Yes. Do we want to play a remake of a 13-year-old game? Hum. Well, actually, probably not. But we'll see.
  • db1331 - October 26, 2010 7:02 p.m.

    I love shooters, love Bond flicks, and I loved the original Goldeneye on 64. Hell, Goldeneye is probably my 2nd favorite of all the Bond movies too. But I am not looking forward to this game in the slightest. I can't quite pinpoint why though. "Do you expect me to be good?" "No, Mr. Bond, I expect you to suck."
