The game is based on the titular 1995 movie, marking the debut of Pierce Brosnan as James Bond. Goldeneye 007 was acclaimed for its multiplayer modes and the benchmark that is set for FPS gaming. Even though the game was a critical success globally, the game remained banned in Germany for the last 25 years. However, in a rush of good news for Goldeneye fans, the game has finally been unbanned in Germany.

Following some changes in the Federal Center for Child and Youth Media Protection, Goldeneye 007 has been removed from the classification of the “Media Harmful to Young Persons” list.

The N64 Online collection has a plethora of classic games such as Super Mario 64, Mario Kart 64, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time and Mario Tennis. While this definitely a nostalgia trip for the Nintendo fans, the hefty pricing of $50 along with added expenses might make fans think twice. Fans have been quite unhappy with the subscription plan for Switch Online services but the addition of more classic games might change their minds.
