GoldenEye N64 To Wii Comparison, Dam Vs. DamS

This is the Facility level in the N64 game.

Let's compare...

Those parts of the Dam level are shot-by-shot recreations. But the Wii version deviates with a wild truck shootout and some other excitement. We'll be seeing more of this game this summer and hope to bring you all the GoldenEye info we can, so you know how the new one compares to the classic.
