The seventeeth James Bond movie released in 1995 with the irreplaceable Pierce Brosnan (007) and Sean Bean (006-Janus).
The name GoldenEye pays homage to Ian Fleming (James Bond’s creator) because he worked on an operation called GoldenEye during the Spanish Civil War.
GoldenEye takes place during the Cold War, my favorite era for fictional stories. Nothing is more badass than secret operations during winter to destroy a hidden military base storing nuclear missiles.
GoldenEye, Red Alert, I grew up with this Cold War imagination and I love it.
I love snow, I love high-tech military devices, I love spies, I love English and Russian and I love nuclear weapons. Think about the movie “Lost in Space”, this is again a fiction based upon the Cold War with the West forced to send a ship into space because they are losing the war against the Reds.
About GoldenEye, I prefer two scenes over the rest, at the beginning when 007 throws himself from the cliff to catch the plane, and at the end when he is driving a tank in St. Petersburg’s streets.
This is a great movie, the best amongst James Bond movies and Pierce Brosnan was the best James Bond.
Released in 1997 on Nintendo 64, GoldenEye 007 is one of the main FPS of the video game history because the campaign and the several challenges are excellent, as well as the multiplayer mode, 4 players on the same TV, the good old days…
This game was hard but the story was very interesting and really close to the movie. The gameplay was perfect, you had plenty of weapons and gadgets, you had sometimes to be stealth to avoid too many enemies in a gunfire, and you could start again a level to end it faster to unlock bonuses.
GoldenEye 007 is one of the main game of the video game history, a masterpiece among FPS and on Nintendo 64. I remember spending hours to unlock the bonus and on multiplayer with my friends. My favorite weapons were the RC-P90 and DD44 Dostovei. Later I discovered Counter Strike, Battlefield, Call of Duty, but my first FPS was GoldenEye 007 😉
It would not be interesting to have the stat-blocks for 006 and 007 because who would want to track James Bond? I prefer to give you the rules for some weird tools and weapons, so you can use it in your own spy setting which I hope will take place during Cold War 🙂
