GoldenEye: Source is a total conversion modification of Half-Life 2. It is a fan made recreation, released for free, with only one goal in mind; to bring the memories and experiences from the original GoldenEye64 back to life using Source Technology. We want you to look at this mod and remember the first best multiplayer first-person shooter ever made. We are doing our best to bring in the opinions of the community to create a game that everyone is going to enjoy. But, we are not here to recreate the game exactly how it was in GE64, a lot of things have changed since they first designed that game, mainly in technology and gamers experiences. We are here to take the game even further but at the same time provide a lot of those fun elements that hardcore GE64 fans will enjoy. We've got experienced team members all across the board, from professional level, to amateurs looking to make it into the business working hard to make this dream a reality.
Maybe some parts of the mod have an irregular level of details, sometimes very high, other prety flat and simple. anyway the feeling of being playing the old N64 version is fantastic and very constant. the weapons are well balanced. 8 of 10 and surely the old project lead that died on 2006, will be very happy to see how this ended.
An amazing Half Life 2 Modification.
Having been a huge fan of Nintendo 64's 'Goldeneye', this is a more-than-nostalgic blast to the past. The visuals are amazing, making very good use of the Source engine. You'd think you were playing Goldeneye. Add in Online multi-player and you've got a remedy for perfection - There isn't a thing about it that isn't good, and yeah, even though it's hard if you're a new player - Stick at it, you're not gonna get any worse, are you?
If you're reading this, I suggest you download it already. Having played games for Over 14 years (And being only 18), my knowledge of games and I can tell you it's brilliant.
This mod is probably the most well made Half Life 2 mod I have ever played. The original Goldeneye for the n64 had great multiplayer maps, and this mod has brought them back with near perfect detail and consideration. All the classic maps brought back nostalgia from playing in the old facility level or the mysterious complex level. Then those exact maps were remade to fit the modern style of gaming. Playing the new remade version of the facility level was amazing! High levels of detail and textures were outstanding. Every single weapon was brought back from the original game, including the sounds. I had fun experimenting with lots of weapons like the Moonraker Laser or the RC-P90! Every scenario from the original was brought back also, including new scenarios that the developers added in for extra fun! The design is a flawless counterpart to the revolutionary n64 version, with physics and updated graphics with great lighting. The developers went out of there way to make this so detailed that they even added the best part of the classic bunker level: Being able to shoot out lights. The achievements are hilarious and challenging to get, but fun enough to keep you playing for hours. The ability to create your own server easily for others to play on is great also, as with any source game. The addition of bots really makes the game easy to play for beginners too. The gameplay is flawless, and being able to throw proxy mines in hidden places and having your enemies fall into your traps is hilarious.
All in all, I give this game a 10/10 because the developers really had Goldeneye in mind, and made it even better.
An outstanding mod that did what I didn't think was possible: To revive the spirit of classic multiplayer shooters. And as a person who really enjoyed the original, I can safely say that this is an improvement in every aspect.
The gameplay hasn't changed much, which is good. The only real change is the fact that you can use an actual mouse to look around, which was not really possible on the N64. All the classic maps are back, including my personal favourite (Facility), with updated textures and models. The Goldeneye weapons return as well, giving a great deal of variety and allowing players to find their own winning strategies. And if you're a person who doesn't care much for online play, there is offline play with bots.
Despite the bot AI being a little stupid at times and there's no crosshair unless you press shift, I don't really see any problems with this mod. Great job, modders!
