Described as your "personal, customisable weapon",
the golden eye give you a number of special powers, including:
Magnetic Field (which allows you to grab an enemy and throw
them in any direction using the right thumbstick), Magnetic
Shield (which will deflect any incoming bullet, offering
temporary invulnerability) and Biometric Scans (which surface
information about your enemy composure and health).
All that glitters isn't gold however, as the technology
that Scaramanga provided you is also a tracking device that
can be used by your masters to keep you in check. The "heads
up display" (HUD) will show you how much of each golden
eye power is available, and also indicate which direction
you are being attacked from.
MI6 revealed why Dr. No is scrapping it out with Goldfinger
in this month's Single
Player Campaign Preview, but now the wraps are off the
mysterious "Omen" weapon. Goldfinger has created
an Organic Mass Energy Neutralizer, or O.M.E.N. for short,
which will vaporize any carbon based life form that gets
in it's way. Auric wisely keeps the weapon on the move to
protect it from Dr No. getting his steel hands on it, and
it will be your job to see that he doesn't.
Incoming intelligence.. Now pay attention:
GRA will feature over a dozen weapons, mostly based
on the real-world, but a few "fantasy" items
will be in your arsenal.
As with the original GoldenEye, there will be no
"jump" action. Be prepared to use a lot
of ducking and strafing to avoid incoming fire.
Your health will automatically recuperate over time,
and can be supplemented by armour pick-ups.
Grenades will play an important part in the game,
especially when tossed up into the air and shot mid-flight
to create havoc.
As was originally planned (but ultimately scrapped)
for "Everything or Nothing", the number
of weapons you can carry will be limited to realistic
The classic "zip line" feature will play
a part in GRA level design, where you can slide quickly
between platforms on a wire.
Expect to see a Bond style opening title song by
a well known artist!
