Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this game, based on the James Bond universe, casts players as a 007 colleague who joins forces with the series' famous villains.
Is It Any Good?
It's too bad the game fails to capture the big personalities of the Bond baddies, instead delivering a disappointing, by-the-numbers shooter that just barely manages to be fun. The things that have made the Bond franchise successful for so long -- creative gadgets, wry humor, a sense of style, and clever solutions to desperate predicaments -- are totally absent.
Despite the techno soundtrack and slick presentation, GoldenEye Rogue Agent offers very little beyond pulse-pounding battles with a seemingly endless horde of semi-intelligent enemies. It is worth noting that you can wound an enemy and use his body as a human shield. Overall, while the fast-paced, frenetic, and bloodless firefights can be fun, they underscore the sad truth about the game: GoldenEye Rogue Agent uses the Bond label only to distract from the fact that it has little more to offer than killing and explosions. Even Bond's greatest rivals have more pride than that.
Did we miss something on diversity?
