Digital Foundry’s John Linneman also repeated some “weird” effects in the Xbox version that he has compared to the Nintendo 64 version, particularly with “wobbly vertices and textured stitching”. Code Mystics responded immediately is because of the “authenticity” of this version, not one hitch now introduced: “It’s just easier to see in high resolution. But the glitches were compared to a Nintendo 64 during development. That was there too, but blurrier.”
Nice to compare these directly. However, there is definitely some weirdness going on with the new releases. You may have to zoom in on that CRT thanks to the moiré camera distorting it. pic.twitter.com/a5ndxehbsS John Linneman (@dark1x) January 27, 2023

Some quick thoughts after 100%’ing GoldenEye Xbox:
– Disappointing 30FPS lock.
– Some graphics issues. Visible seams. Misrepresented textures.
– Performance issues.
– Operation is “OK”. Graslu00 (@Graslu00) January 27, 2023
