Goldeneye: Rogue Agent Review

Image for Goldeneye: Rogue Agent

Ever fancied being a Bond Villain? Here's your chance

★★★★★

If you’d rather rule the world than save it, Rogue Agent will sate your megalomaniacal appetite. The first game to cast players as a James Bond villain rather than the suave superspy, the adventure follows a disgraced 00 agent as he squares off against Dr. No in a race for global domination. Familiar locations, including an underwater base and the Moonraker space station, are brought to wonderful life.

But while playing the bad guy makes for some brilliantly brutal moments — you can stamp on an enemy’s fingers as they hang from a window ledge and send them plummeting to their doom, for example — Rogue Agent lacks the depth, subtlety and pace of the classic N64 GoldenEye game.
