Nearly all of the elements from the original Goldeneye video game/film are adapted here in some shape or form, with some radical changes made to many characters/settings/etc. to better adapt them for the modern world. The one major element missing outright from the original game/film is the character of Boris the computer hacker, who has no equivalent character here.

The 'Goldeneye' title has also been used for the 1995 James Bond movie _Goldeneye (1995)_; a 1989 television biopic of 'Ian Fleming', Goldeneye (1989); the James Bond video game GoldenEye 007 (1997) which this game is based on; and another video game, GoldenEye: Rogue Agent (2004), which used this name to take advantage of the popularity of the first game, but had a wholly different story. These all make 'Goldeneye' the most ever used phrase for a title in the filmed James Bond universe.
