007 VIDEO GAME TITLE: GoldenEye 007
PLATFORM(S): Nintendo 64
BOND LIKENESS: Pierce Brosnan
Like the movie, GoldenEye 007 starts in Arkhangelsk, USSR during the mid-1980s, where MI6 has uncovered a secret chemical weapons facility at the Byelomorye Dam. James Bond is sent to infiltrate the facility by bungee jumping from the dam, then join his friend and fellow 00-agent Alec Trevelyan in destroying the factory. During the mission, Trevelyan is apparently killed by Colonel Arkady Ourumov, but Bond escapes by commandeering an airplane.

GoldenEye 007‘s menu system is presented as an MI6 dossier. Four save files are available to track the player’s progress through the game’s twenty missions, each of which may be played on either “Agent,” “Secret Agent,” or “00-Agent,” difficulty settings, with higher difficulties requiring the player to complete additional and more complex objectives. M, Q, and Miss Moneypenny provide background information on the chosen mission and its goals.

Once a mission is completed, the player may either continue progressing through the story or choose to replay a previously completed level. Completing certain missions within particular target times enables the player to unlock bonus cheat options which make various changes to the graphics and gameplay, and upon fully completing the game on the 00-Agent difficulty level, an additional “007” setting allows the player to customize the challenge of any mission.

The player’s initial weapon in most missions is James Bond’s Walther PPK. Most of the game’s firearms are modeled on real-life counterparts, while others are based on fictitious devices featured in the Bond films, such as the Golden Gun and Moonraker laser. The weapons vary in characteristics such as rate of fire and type of ammunition used, and inflict different levels of damage depending on which body part they hit. Stealth is an important element of the game: in order to avoid gunfights with multiple opponents, it is advantageous to eliminate soldiers and security cameras before they spot or hear the player. Certain weapons may be powerful enough to shoot
through doors and helmets but are very loud, while others incorporate
suppressor or zoom lens attachments to aid the player in killing enemies

Some gadgets from the James Bond film series are featured in the game and are often used to complete particular mission objectives; for example, 007’s in-game watch includes the laser from the GoldenEye film, the remote mine detonator from GoldenEye and Moonraker, and the electromagnet from Live and Let Die.
