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. If you get bored of the campaign you can always try the challenges in simulation mode or test your shooting skills in the firing range.
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. Instead you play as Joanna Dark, tasked to bring down an evil corporation.
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. While not quite as amazing as the hype would let you believe, nor as great as Goldeneye, it is a fun game and one of the best for the console.
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. The overall graphics are fantastic for being the 64bit machine game. I still play it to this day and I probably will continue to play it.
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. The back side of the box presents a brief summary of the plot and the games features which I will inform you of in the review. There are also a few screen shots present. (I will also include some at the bottom of the review).
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. The multiplayer option is amazing with a first for Nintendo, in that there are high frag weapons with bots to take the damage. You can pit yourself against the best sim or the meat sim, it is your choice ?
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. The two main arguments I have seen arise from the misery guts that hate everything that is good is that it is too much like Goldeneye and the other argument is it isn’t enough like Goldeneye.
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. This turned out to be a killer combo, Goldeneye was one of the fastest selling N64 games ever, but when has a company ever released a million seller and not made a sequel?
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. The main problem were that the AI was absolutely laughable.
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. The best first person shooter ever seen- mixing stealth, shooting, and of course James Bond.
Pros: /fantastic multiplayer, plenty of challanges, great graphics .
