Control style is a style of control of GoldenEye 007 that is found in a number of styles, and is available in many of GoldenEye 007 related titles, including the original, the XBLA leak, the Wii re-imagining, Reloaded and DS versions. While GoldenEye doesn't allow for full customization of its controls, it does allow the players to chose from eight predefined control styles. The styles change the functions of the control pad, control stick, C buttons, and the controller's six other buttons. In other titles, however, they may change the functions of different buttons.
Single controller setups are designed to be played with a hand on the center grip and the other hand on one of the outer grips. While having a hand on the right grip is the most popular setup all of these styles are designed to be playable using either configuration.
Dual controller style are designed to be played with a hand on the center grip of each controller. They allow for analog movement, turning, looking, and strafing whereas only two of those can be available at a time on a single controller.
Special Controls (Nintendo 64 and XBLA versions only)
There are special button combinations that function regardless of which control style has been selected.
Reverse Weapon Selection: Press the fire button while the weapon button is held down. Bond will switch through weapons backwards.
Faster Firing: Press the weapon button repeatedly while the fire button is held. This is especially useful with any semi-automatic weapon (pistols, for example).
Alternative Detonator: Press the weapon and action buttons together while remote mines are the active weapon (can be pressed in even if weapon button is pressed first or if action button is pressed first). Any mines Bond has placed will be detonated immediately.
