Nintendo’s “GoldenEye 007” game paved the way for first-person shooters with its innovative gameplay. The things that have made “GoldenEye 007” so enjoyable are its vast supply of weapons (many of which were inspired by the movie) one could use, karate-chop action, the multiplayer mode, and the ability to use cheats. The cheats added to the game’s replayability and made it more fun when playing alone or with friends.
Released in August of 1997 for the Nintendo 64 console, and rated Teen for animated blood and violence by the Entertainment Software Rating Board, “GoldenEye 007” allows gamers to play through the events of the movie. “GoldenEye 007” also provides players with cheats to enhance the gameplay, or to just help out when things get a little too difficult. Many of these cheats can help players progress through the game, like providing the use of all the weapons available and offering invincibility. Some cheats are more for fun, like the DK mode cheat, which changes all the characters into big-headed ape-like versions.
