Soundtrack Saturdays: Goldeneye 007 – Archives

It’s hard to imagine what gaming would be like without Goldeneye 007. Based on the famous James Bond movie, it was one of the finest multiplayer games of its time. Every modern first-person shooter owes something to its design. Up to four players could hunt each other down at the same time, using a plethora of guns, bombs, and knives. The ridiculous amount of codes and secrets (including a functional ZX Spectrum emulator!) made every fire fight entertaining. I doubt I’m the only gamer who remembers the floating mine glitch, or the tedium of tracking down Dr. Doak in the second stage. Despite aging poorly in terms of graphics and simplistic stage design, its fundamental mechanics are solid. The superb soundtrack adds some much-needed ambiance and keeps you engaged in the mission. Nearly 20 years later, you can still find gamers willing to give it another round.

If you want more Goldeneye, you can find the full OST here.

Good gaming, good music.
