Perfect Dark Zero (Xbox 360)

 

It's tempting to try to put Perfect Dark Zero in perspective by spending a lot of time on topics other than what makes it such a terrific action game. One of the highest-profile Xbox 360 launch titles, this near-future first-person shooter is the...

Elvis has re-entered the building. Nostalgia is everything in this business. It is really one of the foundations that keep the video game industry going. Perfect Dark is a prime...

Good updated graphics ; A ton of content for ten bucks ; Still a fun game

No checkpoints in levels ; Objectives are very vague

Perfect Dark Review

 

Why you don't actually want a GoldenEye remake.

It's totally Perfect Dark, complete with online multiplayer and co-op; familiar control alternatives are helpful

Awkward controls; bland, confusing and repetitive environments; iffy matchmaking; frustrating lack of direction

Despite it being a killer remake, Perfect Dark itself is past its prime. I'm glad that my biggest sticking point, the awful controls, have been addressed - you can swap to a straight-up Halo or Call of Duty control scheme. It's a small gesture, though,...

A great polishing of a great game that comes ten years too late

HD graphics and smooth framerate ; Brilliant sci-fi weapons ; Massively complete multiplayer

Levels which leave you lost ; Dumb AI ; Everything feels dated

Perfect Dark is a conspicuously aged game; many years older it seems, than Halo, and somehow even older than the less ambitious but more solid GoldenEye from four years earlier. But if you were there at the time, if you queued with us at the game...

Perfect Dark

 

Perfect Dark is a game considered by many to be one of the two classic shooters that defined the genre on consoles (with the other being Goldeneye). And considering Rare's failed attempt to make a proper sequel, it is clear that the original Perfect...

Single player campaign is still a blast; co-op is amazingly addictive; plenty of multiplayer options and maps to choose from; the up-scaled graphics look nice

Controls have not aged well; multiplayer is not as fun as you may remember; hard for those who have never played this on the N64 to get into

Perfect Dark

 

When it was originally released on the N64 way back in the year 2000, Perfect Dark was one of the most ambitious first person shooters to date. Building on the success of its spiritual predecessor Goldeneye, developers Rare created a game with a rich...

Joanna Dark enters a next-gen combat simulator.

Hardcore old-school fun; Tons of multiplayer options; Same game we remember; Controls with second analog stick

Perfect Dark - Review

 

It has been almost 10 years since Nintendo 64 owners were spoiled with the release of Perfect Dark from Rare. It was praised as being a game unlike any other, near perfection. But looking back on the game, it was filled with flaws such as the frame...

Even though the gameplay was left untouched, the game now runs smooth as silk which was one of the biggest frustrations when trying to play multiplayer on the original version of the game due to the massive drops in framerate. The drops are completely...

Still great for those who loved it, Perfect Dark may be a little long in the tooth for everyone else.

inspired in other games. It's like I don't need the walkthrough anymore, because I just played the game last year. I guess the game just made an impression
