First Impressions: Goldeneye 007 Reloaded

Released in November, Goldeneye 007 Reloaded is Activision's latest Bond game despite being an updated PS3/360 version of last years Wii release which was a rehash of the mid 90's Nintendo 64 classic.

Featuring HD graphics and decent voice acting from Daniel Craig (Bond) and Judy Dench (M), Goldeneye both looks and sounds the part one would expect from a modern day Bond installment.

The action is simple with one button stealth attacks and familiar controls as you take Bond on another MI6 adventure.

The game starts in Russia as you track a general who is selling military equipment on the black market. In true Bond fashion, within 10 minutes you are taking on a small army and shooting down helicopters.

I enjoyed the small part of the game I played which seemed to be in real time. It could just be the story but I had 45 minutes to do something and after stuffing around for a while it turns out I was six minutes behind at one stage. It could just be a coincidence but if not, and sections of the game are in real time, I'm a fan of this concept.

As with the original, Goldeneye Reloaded features multiplayer gameplay with 14 maps and the ability to play as classic characters including Jaws and Oddjob. As I didn't play the multiplayer I'm not sure if the classic paintball option is available.

Goldeneye 007 Reloaded is available now on PS3 and Xbox 360.
