Excerpt: When people talk about what game started the first person shooter as we know it today, Goldeneye is the answer. Though Goldeneye started that style, Perfect Dark perfected it. It has a brilliant campaign mode with three difficulty level's that will have you playing for hours.
Pros: amazing gameplay, excellent multiplayer options, a range of great weapons, life span of game
Play it NOW, it stands the test of time well, and is one of the best shoot 'em ups ever made

Excerpt: A truely brilliant game, perhaps in some ways, an updated Goldeneye. This game was made by 'Rare'. They made Goldeneye, Banjo Kazooie and DK. Set in the future, Agent Perfect Dark is an athletic, attractive, female Agent not to be messed with.
Excerpt: Developed by Rare (the same developers behind the sensational Goldeneye), Perfect Dark is essentially a Science Fiction version of the game! You play as Joanna Dark, a female operative who must search and destroy people from around the world!
Excerpt: This game reared only toward the end of the N64 lifespan, the consol that gave us Goldeneye to which in many ways this feel like a sequel. Perfect Dark takes a Lara Croft type strong female character, gives her a haircut and puts her up against evil galactic aliens and a giant greedy US corporation.
Excerpt: After the massive success of Goldeneye on the Nintendo 64, Rare set about creating a follow-up game. Enter Perfect Dark, a sequel which doesn't quite match the heady heights of its predecessor. Perhaps the biggest let down for fans of Goldeneye is that in Perfect Dark you don't get to play as Bond.
Excerpt: Rare succeeded in the rare (no pun intended) feat of making a brilliant videogame adaptation of a film with their seminal FPS Goldeneye, and so their next effort, Perfect Dark, was hugely hyped up as the next "killer app" for the N64.
A superb game, which was one of the best for the N64

Excerpt: Perfect Dark for the N64 was one of the best games. It has pretty good graphics, which can be enhanced with correct RGB cables and the gameplay is excellent. There are loads of levels to fight your way through. The unique thing about this game is that you play as a woman - Joanna Dark.
Excerpt: Perfect Dark is a first person shooter created by Rare, the developers of the classic shooter GoldenEye 64, and is a superbly well designed, updated and improved version of the aforementioned classic game.
Excerpt: I had this years after it came out and have to say it is as good if not better than Golden eye. The Controls and layout are the same but there the similarities end as the plot pulls you into a world of spying and killing.
Nearly perfect game from Rare, one of the best games ever released!
7 February 2009
Excerpt: Perfect Dark was by far the most hyped game to be released on the good old Nintendo 64. Using the same game engine to that of Goldeneye, Rare once again set about creating an absolute masterpiece.
