Take a straw-poll of gamers concerning their favourite James Bond game, or their favourite N64 game, or even the FPS that changed the way they thought about the FPS genre, and chances are the answer will be the same each time. Goldeneye, release on that sadly obsolete console back in 1997, was a true watershed moment in the history of gaming and it is rightly heralded as one of the best point and shoot games of any generation. That success of course spawned a Wii redo last year, with frankly disappointing results (the shooting and navigation mechanics actually dropped in quality), and there were some of us who thought that might be the final, insulting legacy for the iconic Rare-released title. But then all was made right in the world again when Activision announced their intention to release Goldeneye Reloaded, an updated, improved version of the original which would bring Goldeneye screaming into the 21st century. Featuring new single-player content from the re-mastered adventure, as well as all the time-honoured characters, from Oddjob to Jaws, the new incarnation promises to be the only way to re-live all the classic moments from one of the greatest games ever to be released. And today, with the release a little over a month a way, we have a brand new trailer, unveiling some of the stealth elements of the game... http://youtu.be/Dlaqh_8-aws
Goldeneye Reloaded is available to buy on the PS3 on 28th October and XBox 360 the following week.
