`GoldenEye 007` named best film to game adaptation

14-May-2009 • Gaming

The Independent has named the James Bond title "GoldenEye 007" on the Nintendo 64 the best film to game adaptation in videogame history.

Often voted highly in best-game-ever polls, "GoldenEye 007" released in 1997, beat out to the likes of Star Wars and Indiana Jones to the #1 spot.

This is easily the best James Bond simulation ever produced and a true landmark title. GoldenEye is not only one of the finest first-person-shooters to emerge on to home consoles, but also an amazing multiplayer experience. Never before had the control scheme for a game such as this worked so well on a home console. While it is testament to the developers' talents that, in a time before multiplayer patches and downloadable content, the multiplayer aspect of the game stayed fresh for so long. Now if only Nintendo could negotiate an agreement with Microsoft to see its release on to the Wii's Virtual Console catalogue.

#1 GoldenEye 007 (Nintendo 64)
#2 The Chronicles of Riddick: Dark Athena (PS3/Xbox 360)
#3 Lego Indiana Jones (All formats)
#4 Blade Runner (PC)
#5 Die Hard Trilogy (PSOne)
#6 Star Wars: Tie Fighter (PC)
#7 Spiderman 2 (PS2/Xbox)
#8 Alien Versus Predator (PC)
#9 The Warriors (PSP/PS2/Xbox)
#10 X-Men Origins: Wolverine (PS3/Xbox 360)
