After the first mission (Which is the simulator) you are assigned a Goldeneye by Francisco Scaramanga who acts as the villain’s version of 'Q'.

A mediocre shooting game at best, with some novel ideas... Xbox lord of daedra (63)
A game that had potential but didn't make the cut.... PlayStation 2 TwoDividedByZero (149)
A shooter so mediocre that it's an achievement in its own right PlayStation 2 Zokolov (66)
Not a bad game, considering PlayStation 2 Goldeneye (12)
A boring repetitive shooter. GameCube Caltrus (344)
Pretty dull, but does have Christopher Lee... GameCube Keeper Garrett (963)

Trivia

GoldenEye 007

During the games production, it was rumored that the original GoldenEye 007 video game would be buried within the games code and accessed via a special Easter Egg type of command. The idea was dreamt up by designers who felt that Electronic Arts was trying to piggyback off the success of Goldeneye 007 by calling their newest game "GoldenEye 2", which has no resemblance

Story

Although one of the villains from the James Bond film GoldenEye appears in the game, the stories have no real ties to each other. The plot of the film revolved around a weapon called the GoldenEye which used a nuclear bomb detonated in the upper atmosphere to create a damaging electromagnetic pulse on earth.

Title

The name GoldenEye was originally the name of Bond author Ian Flemming's home in Jamaica.
