GoldenEye 007 Reloaded Screens

When GoldenEye 007 Reloaded was announced I was most excited about the online multiplayer. The original Wii version had nicely constructed maps that made for a fun, if limited, split screen multiplayer experience. Honestly I’ve never been a graphics snob, always putting gameplay over visuals, and thus gave little weight to the new HD visuals that Reloaded would be boasting. I was wrong, the screens below bear almost no resemblance to the Wii title in terms of quality. Instead of blocky, minimally textured polygons we are treated to a vibrant world with enemies that look like actual people. In addition, the enhanced visuals extend to the game’s various locations, allowing artists to add that extra layer of grit to the environments – so key now that it is Daniel Craig’s Bond in this version. This allows even the most miniscule aesthetic details, like the paintings in a nightclub hallway, to pop off the screen and add to the game’s immersion. We still don’t have a firm date for Reloaded release, but you will once again be fighting for queen and country as Britain’s most famous secret agent when GoldenEye hits PS3 this fall.

  • It looks nice. I used to love Goldeneye on the N64.

  • I got Goldeneye on the Wii and I’m slightly dissapointed that the locations and enemies look exactly the same except a little more detailed

      Well it is an upgrade, not a new title. So it must have the same locations to adhere to the same story. However, it seems they have tried to add enough new features outside of the main narrative that play to the console’s strengths, i.e., online multiplayer, HD visuals, to make it worth a look. 

      Hopefully more GoldenEye-esque Bond titles will head to PS3 in the future.

    This kind of game re-re-make can be a very good idea for the publisher, as they don’t need to pour loads of money into making a whole new game. Instead just add better looks & trophies (Yo!).

    Sony likes this kind of thing and was the exact reason why the Move™ was made & the reason why i got one.. House of the dead: Overkill, Goldeneye, Conduit and many more. All with better looks and 1.1 controls.
