GoldenEye 007 (N64, Switch, Xbox): keys, tricks and ‘cheats’
The Rare’s classic and agent 007 finally has returned in its original form after decades with licensing issues. While Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack users receive the same Golden Eye 007 from N64 with online multiplayer, those from Xbox Game Pass get more news. Among them, 4K resolution, 16:9 aspect, achievements and improved controls, including dual ‘stick.’
On Switch, the controls closely follow those of the Nintendo 64 and that makes them a bit more archaic for the FPS genre these days. They are somewhat problematic and getting used to them takes time, that is if the Joy-Con doesn’t have ‘drift’. If you have a Pro control -or similar wireless / USB – for Nintendo Switch, it is more recommended. After some testing, we have found that the 1.3 (Kissy) setup works best with these types of controls.
You can even make use of the GameCube controller to Golden Eye 007. By selecting the 1.3 configuration, you must sacrifice your scope in the absence of ZL to be able to shoot with A. In the rare case that you have a Nintendo 64 controller for Switch, the experience is identical and therefore ideal.
How to activate the keys or tricks of Golden Eye 007 for Switch and Xbox
To activate the keys, tricks or secrets of Golden Eye 007 in the Nintendo Switch Online and Xbox Game Pass versions, you first need to remember your methods. In the original version for Nintendo 64, it is possible to meet certain time requirements in missions to unlock them. This enables a ‘cheats’ menu among the game options, to later activate or deactivate the keys at will. Both single player and multiplayer.
It is also possible to press a sequence of buttons to activate the keys or cheats without having to beat the best times of each mission. These keys can be entered during the game, such as within the ‘cheats’ menu. In the Xbox Game Pass version, since it has a new and improved control configuration, inserting these keys is not possible. The ‘cheats’ activated by reaching time records do remain. In addition, Xbox adds 55 achievements to Golden Eye 007.
For its part, the version of Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack is basically the same as that of Nintendo 64. The two ways of activating keys or cheats continue in the same way and it is only necessary to adapt to the control configuration changes. The directions (up, down, left, right) make use of the pad and the corresponding C buttons with the right ‘stick’. Now, it’s harder to get them to work than on the 90s console.
