Skyfall is the twenty-third James Bond film and Daniel Craig’s third outing as Ian Fleming’s 007. Directed by Sam Mendes (American Beauty, Road to Perdition), the film coincides with the James Bond film series’ 50th anniversary. A self-contained outing for the world’s most famous secret agent, Skyfall sees James Bond (Daniel Craig) returning from the dead to face his most dangerous adversary to date – Raoul Silva (Javier Bardem), a cyberterrorist with hidden ties to the head of MI6, M (Judi Dench).

In 1997, Rareware released Goldeneye 007 for the Nintendo 64 to rave reviews. Based on the blueprint of the film itself, it sold well over 8 million copies and set the groundwork for all console first-person shooters to come after it. It also set the bar for any subsequent Bond games incredibly high. Maybe it was the over-powered James Bond who could carry an entire arsenal and fire two weapons at the same time, or the classic multiplayer mode that guaranteed players good competition between themselves and their friends. Whatever the reason, you would be hard pressed to find a James Bond game released since that was as much fun to play. Now, thirteen years after its debut, Activision releases their own remake of Goldeneye 007 on Nintendo Wii… and it’s different enough to become a classic game all on its own.
