Original GoldenEye Dev Has A Slight Issue With Remake

Martin Hollis, who while with Rare was one of the men behind the original GoldenEye on the Nintendo 64, has some kind words to say about Activision, the publisher pushing the remake.

Oh, sorry, did I say kind?

"I imagine it is a business decision isn't it?", HOllis told Official Nintendo Magazine. "This name is valuable, let's use it. I find it hard to picture Activision's top management being excited about the original and wanting to do it justice. In fact, I find it hard to imagine them being excited about any game. It's my perception that they are trying to be EA, only more so. I think they are doing a fine job at that."

Before you think he's saddled with a load of sour grapes, Hollis does have kinder words to say about Eurocom, the actual developers working on the game, saying "they are a good company" and that "I'm confident they have done their very best".
