GoldenEye 007 brings the world's most famous secret agent, James Bond, to life on the Nintendo 64 - complete with license to kill. Using the full power of the Nintendo 64, GoldenEye 007 puts you right into 007's tux and bow tie in a first-person action spectacular. But there's more to it than just blowing away bad guys - you will have to accomplish a variety of espionage objectives, like planting covert modems, copying top secret documents, and diverting the destructive course of the rogue GoldenEye satellite system.

GoldenEye 007 puts would-be double "O" operatives through the paces in 20 challenging missions, each with three different difficulty levels. With each difficulty level, the intelligence of your opponents increases and the complexity and number of objectives grows. Following and expanding on the story line of the hit movie, GoldenEye 007's missions span the globe; from a secret base in arctic Russia to the a giant satellite antenna cradle suspended over the steaming jungles of Cuba.

While the actual game's budget is of course, Top Secret, Rare and Nintendo have spared no expense in creating one of the most immersive gaming experiences ever. Almost two years in the making, the game is worth the wait. To capture the atmosphere of the movie, the game's developers visited the movie sets several times during production to gather research materials. Rare's designers used photographs, movie footage and actual blueprints of the sets to create the complex level layouts. The result is one of the most realistic 3-D, first-person games ever. GoldenEye adds an unbeatable license to thrill.

Only the Nintendo 64's exclusive 64-bit technology could handle the detailed, realistic, three-dimensional environments of GoldenEye 007. Crawl through ventilation ducts, explore secret passages, even drive a tank - you'll have full freedom to explore every location of each mission. If you're not stealthy enough, you'll end up in a fire-fight with motion-captured guards who react with deadly force to the threat of any intruder. No matter how you approach a mission, you can be sure that everyone will end up gunning for a piece of James Bond!

While a single agent can enjoy GoldenEye 007, the excitement multiplies if you have more than one player involved. Grab a few extra N64 Controllers and hook up with some friends for some spy hunting action in GoldenEye 007's multi-player mode. Up to four agents can enter one of 11 arenas for a spy-versus-spy duel to the finish. You'll have Q's entire arsenal of weaponry at your disposal as you attempt to terminate your adversaries. With a variety of different missions available even in multi-player mode, GoldenEye 007 will challenge even espionage experts with hours of game play. You've satisfactorily completed the GoldenEye affair, and all surviving Janus Syndicate mercenaries have been rounded up and put into custody. However, Janus's Control Centre, and their other hideouts, are still intact for the most part. Rather than demolish these structures, we've decided to use them as training centres for our Double "O" agents. You will encounter from one to three opponents, including your old friends and foes, inside each maze-like arena. Your mission: live and let die.

For the ultimate in immersive game play, though, you'll need to equip your Nintendo 64 controller with an optional Rumble Pak Controller Accessory (not included). With the Rumble Pak, you'll actually feel the sudden impact of an enemy 9mm round, the concussion of each grenade explosion, and the unique recoil of each weapon as you fire it. Now YOU are there.

If you've ever fancied yourself as a secret agent then GoldenEye gives you the opportunity to wade into the action. It is very complex game and assured of classic status on the N64.
