The Classics N64 Game Has Never Looked So Good
Nostalgia can be a powerful thing. The things as you remember as a kid or a younging are always somewhat romanticized by the time you reach adulthood. This is the case with movies, books, tv shows, and of course, video games. GoldenEye, at the time of its release, was groundbreaking. It was ahead of its time in almost every way imaginable. Looking back on this game, all those things are still true, but sadly some things do not stand the test of time. Particularity the graphics. To get around this little problem, a development team of fans has reworked the entire game in the Unreal engine and it looks amazing.
The game is still in the very early stages of development. But the team says that they are aiming for a 2022 release date. The group behind this ambitious project has stayed true to the game and not messed with the core gameplay that we all know and love. The goofy sound effects and reload animations are still present. So there is nothing to worry about.
This is also the same team that worked on GoldenEye: Source. So it is a safe assumption that they are passionate and will remain true to what made the game so lovable in the first place. The graphics that are in the demo trailer are by no means jaw-dropping. But they are definitely a huge improvement from the 1997 original.
Multiplayer has not been mentioned yet but fans should not rule it out. Hopefully, we can all relive the blinding rage of trying to shoot Odd Job. Or the feel satisfaction of throwing out a ridiculous Karate chop to Russian scientists.
When the remake of GoldenEye does finally come out it will be available on PC.
