Despite it's flaws, the campaign can be fun the first time around and multiplayer is good, but the title is decieving.

Graphics are decent and the game never seems to go below 30fps and has some cool visual effects, but some of the textures and level designs are a bit bland. Sound is one of the high points here with great weapon effects, good voice acting with enemies shouting your location and what weapons you are holding, and the music (composed by Paul Oakenfold) is great and seems like something from any high-octane action movie.
The single-player game is actually quite fun the first time around and has a couple of missions that you might want to replay again. All of the eight levels might take about 25-45 minutes to complete each, so it's not extremely long. The only problem is that there are some tedious and annoying parts in the later levels. You can also unlock multiplayer options and concept art by getting the high scores in the campaign, but the concept art shows some features that were strangely left out in the game which probably would have made the game better than it is.
Multi-player is great with a good number of maps, settings and modes. The duel maps are great for 2-player deathmatches and the other maps are well suited to 3-4 player games, but be sure to turn on the turbo mode because running isn't very fast in multiplayer. It also would have been nice if there was an option to turn off the eye powers because they feel like cheats most of the time.
GoldenEye: Rogue Agent is still a good game for James Bond fans and is still worth a rental or if you can buy it somewhere for a cheap price.
