What made GoldenEye 007 so good?

Was it the controls? The first of its kind on consoles? Something else?

Whatever it was, I’m not so sure developer Eurocom will be able to revive the series on Wii, especially after reviewing their unimpressive portfolio.

I suppose they could surprise us. After all, they did make Dead Space: Extraction. And a lot of people seemed to like that game. (I thought it was meh.) But overall the revamp feels more like a cash-in than any genuine attempt at reviving a classic.

Whatever the case, Activision will release GoldenEye 007 on November 2, exclusively for Wii. With four-person split-screen and eight-person online, is this a day one purchase? Wait and see? Or a pass?
