Follow TV Tropes


Trivia / GoldenEye (2010)

Go To

  • Follow the Leader: The game borrows many mechanics from the Call of Duty series, as well as the obligatory tropes that most other current-gen FPSes have.
  • Keep Circulating the Tapes: Due to Activision losing the James Bond license, this game is out of print, like the original version, and a rerelease of this game is unlikely at best. The irony here is that the remake was done specifically because of issues with the original version.
  • The Other Darrin: To make Daniel Craig's replacement of Pierce Brosnan as Bond less jarring, all of the other characters in the single player campaign have also had their appearances completely altered as well. They're all new designs (some based on the voice actors), but it does fail a little in terms of polish — notably, 006 looks rather doughy and generic for a super agent/supervillain. His scar isn't noticeable.
    • Though Ourumov, at least, actually looks somewhat better, since his character model no longer has a vacant expression frozen on its face like in the original game.
      • But he's missing his epic hat, and he's fat, so he's an easy target in Heroes.
    • Zukovsky is no longer played by Robbie Coltrane, but at least he maintains a Large Ham attitude in multiplayer and he's not a bullet-magnet in Heroes mode.
    • Averted with Judi Dench reprising her role as M, although she's never seen in person.


How well does it match the trope?
