Description

After being fired from MI6 for your ruthless behavior in an MI-6 simulator, you begin to work for Auric Goldfinger doing evil deeds. 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'. Your Goldeneye can do four separate things which are to see through cover, toss enemies around, use a shield, and hack into computers. The levels in this FPS are all basic run-and-gun style.

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.
