Summary: this game was one of my all time favourite nintendo 64 games and i was so exited when it was coming out on XBLA i loved everything about it the gameplay, the story, and the cheats you can have in the game and the challenge modes you can do on Combat Simulator and customize your own game setting 10/10 for me
Summary: I felt compelled to give this game a 10. I mean ultimately if you don't give Perfect Dark a 10... then what on Earth DOES deserve a 10? Everything about this game is compelling and satisfying with quality and developer talent dripping from it. Imaginative, varied and fast-paced gameplay, captivating mission objectives and levels, great characters, amazing weapons, just an overall excellent game.
Summary: Perfect dark is a must play. It stands as an example on how re-releases should be handled. The revamped textures in HD look great, and the frame rate has been upped to a lovely 60fps, making the game run smooth and look smooth. It means that older players wont need to rely on nostalgia to enjoy it, and newer players wont be put off. The game is great.
Summary: For those who have played this on their N64 and enjoyed it, Should definitely purchase this game no if, and or buts. This is basically the same exact game that you played on the N64. The only addition is online co-op (I'm very happy that they kept local co-op) Also, a cool feature in online co-op is that you can play in splitscreen mode. Yes, even in online co-op. See your friend screen on top (or bottom) as if he/she is playing right next to you on the sofa.
Summary: This game has everything against it now a days, and when you compare it to recent titles it has problems like dumb AI, weird glitches and weird difficulty but despite that this game is freaking awesome! It cannot be more fun running guns out and blazing through this game and killing every enemy you see, picking up the amazing selection of guns and completing objectives. I can't be more satisfied since this port is just great!
Summary: As far as i'm concerned,This is one of the greatest games ever made! Certainly the best on the N64 IMO.I dont know why everyone goes on about Goldeneye,this game is far superior in every way,& has genuinely groundbreaking ideas,such as a friend being able to play as your enemies in the campaign,& Co-Op for the campaign,which was almost unheard of in those days,especially for an FPS.While Goldeneye,was a pretty generic game,with notthing particually special or outstanding...
Summary: By modern standards, Perfect Dark feels almost too simplistic, and it can be frustrating at times. The campaign and story are sometimes confusing too. But it's still a LOT of fun. If you played the original on N64 and liked it, I can honestly say that you'll have even more fun with this new port. Just a warning though: Online matchmaking takes forever, so it's best to play this game with either your friends or bots.
Summary: I can't find a thing wrong with this game. It really shows that in a world where FPS games don't age well a few upgrades can make all the difference. I was afraid going back to Pd after 10 years would bring me to the reality that nostalgia had me fooled. Not the case. This is a perfect example of how to "port" an older game to a new console.
