GoldenEye 007 is held in very high regard among gamers, and with good reason. It was considered a revolutionary game that was way ahead of its time, and has had a world records set for each stage for over 12 years. The oldest of these records lies with Dam, the first stage in the game. And now, that time has been beaten.
On agent difficulty, the record was set on September 27th, 2002 by Bryan Bosshardt, who completed it in just 53 seconds. This has now recently been beated by Karl Jobst, who has beaten the time by a single second, clocking in at 52 seconds.
GoldenEye has always been a popular game among speedrunners, and will prove even more so now after Jobst proved that the records that have been set for so long can still be broken. The video below showcases Jobst’s triumph, though you’ll only need to watch the first couple of minutes of the seven-minute video.
As you can see, Jobst is strafing to the gate, and within an eye-shot, he has shot off the lock and sprinted his way to a new record. The run is recognized by The-Elite.net, and proves to be a monumental achievement after such a long time in extremely prestigious title.
Speedruns are always impressive to watch, and this is definitely up there with the best of them, considering how long the previous record had been held for. We would like to congratulate Jobst on the effort, and hope that it encourages more players to attempt to crack the other records set.
