I remember that I watched it when it aired and promptly flipped out about Perfect Dark Zero. I still don't think that game got a fair shake. It doesn't hold up now days for sure but at launch it was a great game IMO.
Perfect Dark was one of my favourite N64 games and I hated Zero at launch; it just felt like a completely different universe.
I may feel differently now, but at the time it just felt like a relatively generic shooter.
