Rare's Nintendo 64 classic, Goldeneye 007, is treated a bit like Blade Runner when it comes to sequels and remakes. Cutting-edge at the time of its 1997 release, the fear that anyone could come in and try to soil the fond memories spent playing Facility in multiplayer is extraordinary.

This Nintendo DS remake takes us through an updated Goldeneye 007 storyline, with Pierce Brosnan replaced with current MI5 actor Daniel Craig. As a result, there isn't so much an emphasis on gadgets as there is a one-device-does-all PDA that allows Bond to hack into terminals and manipulate technology.

The core gameplay mechanics have been treated with such care and respect, that playing it on a Nintendo DS almost feels like you're playing the original on an N64 control pad. Updated graphics and alternate scenes make up the visual differences in this version however. Touchscreen-specific controls allow you to switch between weapons seamlessly, and a map is always in view so you can always get to the next objective efficiently.

What 007 game would be complete without multiplayer? Take the game online for up to six-player action via the Nintendo WiFi Connection. Eight multiplayer maps are available with an array of different modes including Golden Gun mode.
