The default control scheme will probably feel a bit odd, but Reddit user Cuesport77 has suggested changes that will bring it in line with modern shooters. I tested this and it works beautifully (although I chose to use the left analog stick to move, the right to aim).
1. Go to System Settings > Controllers & Sensors > Change Button Assignments.
2. Create a control profile for GoldenEye.
3. Remap the left analog stick to function as the right analog stick.
4. Remap the right analog stick to function as a left analog stick.
5. Remap the ZR button to function as ZL so you can shoot ZR.
6. Remap ZL to function as L so you can aim manually with ZL.
7. (Optional) Remap L to function like B so you can activate things with L.
8. (Optional) Remap R to function like A so you can switch weapons with R.
(You will now need to navigate with the right analog stick and A/B or L/R, depending on whether you followed steps 6 and 7.)
9. Launch GoldenEye and start a mission by navigating the menus with the right analog stick.
10. Pause and go to Controls.
11. Go from 1.1 Honey to 1.2 Solitaire.
12. Go to Settingsand turn the Look Up/Down setting to Upright.

So it offers more advanced bells and whistles than the Switch version, but lacks online multiplayer (you’ll still have local split-screen).
