funny you should ask, as I just bought this game today..
From the first board I played, I got the impression that it may be a bit easy....yeah, easy. Which is fine with me, because I sucked so hard at Goldeneye ...anyway..
I say, if you like first-person shooters, definitely go get it. because it's one heckuva games. Graphics are great, AND..you get to drive a tank, and drive his cars...
Despite what the video game websites say, it's a solid game. I'm guessing they don't like it for the same reason they didn't like Wave Race: Blue Storm....it's just like the other games. But, I never owned Goldeneye,and if you haven't, or just love bond..then definitely get this one..
