After decades of waiting, the original GoldenEye 007 has finally been brought over from the N64 to modern platforms. Players on the Switch and Xbox Series X/S can now relive all the magic of the first Bond FPS, now with some major improvements in resolution and minor tweaks in gameplay.

Wondering how these 2023 releases compare to the N64 original? Obviously things are going to look and run better, but are there any ways the N64 release is actually equal to, or better than the re-releases? The gang at Digital Foundry is here to take a deep dive and figure things out.

It’s a shame you have to jump through a few hoops and manually remap buttons on Switch to use more modern and better controls but the Xbox version has that baked in.
