Considered to be one of the greatest video games of all time, Nintendo 64's award-winning GoldenEye 007 is based on 1995’s GoldenEye movie starring Pierce Brosnan as everyone’s favorite womanizing British spy, James Bond. Developed by Rare and released in 1997, the first-person shooter features both single-player and multiplayer modes.

In the single-player campaign, players take on the role of James Bond as he (meaning you) tries to stop a criminal organization from using a satellite weapon to hit London in order to cause a global financial collapse. Navigating a series of free-roaming 3D levels, the player has to complete certain tasks such as rescuing hostages, collecting or destroying items, and meeting with non-player characters before exiting each level.

As for the split-screen, multiplayer mode, this one allowed up to four players to compete in different types of death match competitions.

Now, if you're a gamer, you'll know that games generally have two sets of rules: The ones that are actually put down on paper, and those that everyone who plays the game is aware of but never outright say. With that in mind, SYFY WIRE now takes a look at five unspoken rules of engagement for N64's GoldenEye 007.

Check out our exclusive video for more, and let us know if you're one of those gamers who have played (or are still playing) GoldenEye 007.
