ABOUT
GoldenEye 007 is a 2010 first-person shooter video game developed
by Eurocom and published by Activision for the Wii video game console, with a handheld version for Nintendo DS developed by N-Space. It is a reimagining of both the 1995 James Bond film GoldenEye and the 1997 Nintendo 64 video game GoldenEye 007. The game was officially announced by Nintendo at their E3 2010 conference presentation. The game was released on November 2, 2010 in tandem with another Bond game, Blood Stone. It took on the elements of a modern shooter while retaining a classic name. A remastering of the Wii game was released for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 consoles in 2011, re-titled as GoldenEye 007: Reloaded.

Although Pierce Brosnan starred as Bond in GoldenEye and was featured in the 1997 game, subsequent Bond actor Daniel Craig’s likeness and voice are featured in the 2010 game and the plot has been modified to fit with the current style of James Bond films. Judi Dench, who has portrayed M since GoldenEye, reprises her role for the game, though in voice only. With the exception of M, all other main characters from the film have had their appearances altered, though they still retain their original names.

Unlike the original video game and therefore movie, the whole story
takes place after the Cold War due to the Soviet Union’s replacement by the
Russian Federation, so the story does not jump nine years ahead after the
opening sequence.

The story is set some time after the events of Quantum of Solace it begins as James Bond (007) and Alec Trevelyan (006) (Elliot Cowan) are on a mission infiltrating a chemical weapons facility in Arkhangelsk, Russia, which is believed to be the source of weapons used by a terrorist cell to target British embassies around the world. The mission goes awry when Trevelyan is caught and apparently shot by General Ourumov (Laurence Possa). Bond escapes by detonating explosives he had placed throughout the facility before stealing a motorcycle and chasing a plane over the edge of a cliff, fleeing Arkhangelsk.
