It's official using Oddjob in 007 was cheating...

Now, 21 years after GoldenEye graced the N64, we finally have official word that yes, picking Oddjob WAS cheating - and the ruling has come from the developers themselves.

In an oral history of GoldenEye published on Mel Magazine, Karl Hilton, who was the lead environment artist on the game, and Mark Edmonds, who was the gameplay and engine programmer, put the long-running debate to bed: if you picked Oddjob you were a dirty cheat.

“We all thought it was kind of cheating when we were play-testing with Oddjob, but it was too much fun to take out and there was no impetus from any of us to change it,” Hilton said.
