    *could HAVE

    Anyways, looks good. And were the game to receive more than a facelift (it really has aged poorly) it would have been something I'd pick up.

    Looks like Goldeneye if it were made 3 years later.

    Yeah, I was expecting ....more of an update...they say they've improved it, but I only see a few minor differences. Maybe it's a good thing it didn't come out...

    I am going to speak heresy here and say Golden eye didn’t do anything for me.

    Burn him! He's a witch!

    Comon, it was one of THE best N64 games and the best multiplayer game of its time! I remember having my 3 buds over on the weekends, and we'd play split screen for hours. I've played Aztec more than any other map on that game.

    Perfect Dark was the only game to compare to GoldenEye.

    I'm almost in the same boat. I did play my friend's copy, single and multi, and it was fun for a bit but I never loved it enough to buy it for my N64 library.

    I never liked GoldenEye as much as the N64 Turok series. All I want to know is does this mean we are or are not going to get the rest of the Rare games on the VC (I demand Banjo-Kazooie and Donkey Kong 64)?

    EDIT: And what about Turok 1 and 2 for that matter?

    Woo. We almost had an old game with nothing but updated graphics.

    Mm, yes. Let's make Nintendo the "bad guy" here. If the roles were reversed, would Microsoft allow a game that they'd financed and put their name on to be released on a competitor's console? I doubt it.

    People may not like it, but this is business.

    I concur with you both. Therefor you are smart.

    You too are smart. Stop making sense! This is talk of consoles. All sense must be thrown out the window.

    First, I think it's important to realize that this is a Live Arcade game, meaning you pay about $10 to download it. Most Live games are quickie affairs, like Pong and stuff, usually completely unaltered. The most meaty Live Arcade game I've seen is Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, and that game was still virtually unchanged.

    The purpose of releasing old games on Live Arcade isn't to cash in and force you to double dip and pay full price, but to let new players experience some classic oldies for a low fee. And, if you sold your N64 and your PS1 broke long ago (true on both counts for me), there's no way to relive Goldeneye or C:SOTN except on Live Arcade.

    That the graphics were spruced up is only the icing on the cake. I actually read the article, and it seems like the 360 version would have kept all the glitches too. And with the flick of a button, you can revert back to unaltered N64-quality graphics.

    Exactly the points I was gonna make. These are re-releases of the old games, not completely redone versions. Does it look bad these days? Yeah. But so does every other old game released on XBLA so far, too in its original mode.. The adding in of the "enhanced" modes is only a bonus, really. And while there's many more new and modern games to play, i'm sure 4 player multiplayer over Live would have been a blast.

    I can't agree, I think CastleVania:SotN is still one of the best looking games I have played. Just because its flat 2-D doesn't mean it cant compete with fully rendered 3-d worlds.

    Thats a shame, it would have been Rare's best game in over 5 years.

    And I am going to have to agree with Gnaw. It may not hold up today, but for it's time it was a great 1 player and multiplayer experiance. Perfect Dark too.

    you could just as easily blame microsoft and say they're being greedy by wanting a 360 port of a nintendo exclusive. either way, the companies didn't agree so it didn't happen, so in the end no one is to blame. i honestly wish microsoft hadn't bought rare, it's been nothing but trouble ever since.
