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
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.
Excerpt: this game blew my whole perspective on first person shooters right outta my ass. With titles like James Bond: Goldeneye and Doom on my hitlists, this game has come a long way from those titles. I love the capability for AI teams and etc that were restrictions on Goldeneye.
Excerpt: Multiplayer: Yes, up to 4 players can play all together. Expansion Pak: Required to play the solo missions. The game is nicely packaged in a rectangular cardboard box with great art work on the face of it.
Excerpt: Perfect Dark is an amazing game for game play and is a graphical genius. You play a female secret agent working for a spy company. The evil Cassandra is bent on taking all the advances that have ever advanced, ever.
Excerpt: The long awaited half sequel to Goldeneye depicts you as a secret agent Joanna Dark in a mission to save the world from an alien invasion. Too many complaints have been made about this game which will make you think purchasing such a good game would be a mistake well you’d be wrong.
Excerpt: Goldeneye sticks in the hearts of many as the greatest First Person Shooter ever, Goldeneye is some of Rareware's best work ever. The idea was genius, just take a worn out first person shooter mold, add tons of depth to it, and add a sort of spy/espionage feel to the game.
Pros: Great Multiplayer, Tons of Extra Modes . . .
Excerpt: After playing through GoldenEye on the hardest setting, completing all the time challenges, thoroughly liquidising all my friends and so on, the idea of a sequel excited me somewhat. GoldenEye is an absolutely fantastic game - one of the best ever, might I add - but it's far from perfection.
Excerpt: OK, I’ll get straight to the point. This is the best console multiplayer game ever. If you own an N64- you MUST buy this game. There- I’ve said it. The rest of this review is kinda pointless except to try to justify that last statement, but here goes… It started like this: November 1997- Goldeneye.
Pros: /fantastic multiplayer, plenty of challanges, great graphics .
