GoldenEye 007 N64 games get HD update using Far Cry 5

What about Oddjob?


Fans of the N64 probably remember hours of sitting in front of the television and playing through GoldenEye 007 (and fight over who had to cheat and play as Oddjob). The 1997 game has now been revived! Well, sort of. A YouTuber has created a version of GoldenEye 007 in Far Cry 5level editor. Finally, our dream of playing this game and returning to the Silo map, this time without the bulky sight system, can live on.

Krollywood, YouTuber who spent 1400 hours recreating the iconic game, talked to Kotaku about it. In a direct message revealed that the recreation includes every level of the 90s, with the exception of the two bonus levels. Far Cry 5 is not the only game with the ability to edit levels, but for Krollywood it is better due to the number of items at your disposal. And it managed clearly to all our advantage because this version of GoldenEye 007 strikes us right in nostalgia.

First-person shooter was one that captivated a generation for its revolutionary multiplayer deathmatch mode that set the standard for multiplayer games going forward. That the game also included inventive games that required more hiding than previous FPS games, made an absolute impression. Gold eye was very popular and consumed Nintendo 64 fans in the 90’s, and it is still considered one of the best games of all time, and certainly among the best movie-to-game adaptations ever.

In a Reddit comment, Krollywood said that the levels are available to play via arcade mode with Far Cry 5. You can look up the PSN username “Perfect-Dark1982.”

Like a proper HD remaster of GoldenEye 007 or the next generation console release seems more and more unlikely, this recreation is the second best thing. Now the question remains, what is the best game mode? Our money is on The Man With the Golden Gun. You can see an overview of the levels below, plus some comparisons to the original game with permission from Kotaku:
