Am I the only one who Liked/Still Likes this game?

I just really enjoy this game. The stylized look. The feel of the controls and weapons. The multiplayer and singleplayer. I just really enjoyed this game, yet it seems like everywhere I go there is never a strong fan community for it.

All I know is, I am DESPERATELY waiting for a sequel!!!

Yes? I don't know...I hated it. The game just didn't feel right to me. It's been a while since I played, so my memory is naturally foggy, but I remember I never liked it.

It was amazing at first, since it was one of the first games I played on my 360, however its incredibly outdated, to the point where it sucks any fun out of the game, way too hard as well, and not fair hard, I couldn't even finish it on normal, constant re spawning enemies are a joke.

Nah it was a good game. Now it is completely outdated, though. I didn't love t, but it was ok.

Man, I'm a big fan of Rare so I was really excited about this game. I got it for $15 new, and still have barely touched it. I played the first level, and just found the aiming to be so inaccurate that I kind of stopped after that and haven't gone back to it since. I'll play it again some day, I'm sure, but I'd rather finish up some other games first.

I was so fucking cut when I heard the Perfect Dark sequel was going over to Xbox, fortunately for me it didn't even closely live up to the original. But I played it and it seemed like a decent game.

It was kind of a mixed bag for me.

Yep. Its not that it was absolutely a terrible game I'd say to most people. It just wasn't what they were expecting as a follow up to one of the best console defining FPS. That has a lot to do with the Rare who worked on it though no longer working there at all...the Rare that is there now is pretty much no one from the Goldeneye/PD team....if I had knew that at the time I wouldn't of even gave it a chance. Its like when EA came out with a game with "Goldeneye" in the title....thats just an insult.

I feel the same way,I thought it was a great game

Does anyone know how much this game ultimately sold? (I'm pretty sure it was a lot i just want to make sure.) Because I'm desperately waiting on a sequel..

I enjoyed the action levels, but the stealth levels were poorly designed and the stealth features were implemented badly.

Since it was one of the first 360 games I played I thought it was enjoyable. I played the online alot even though it felt I was playing against a bunch of bots. Now looking back at the game the rag doll effects are hilarious.

It was one of the first games for x360 as i remember, so naturally i bought it. As people before said, it was far too hard even on normal, aiming was sketchy, etc. But the 16 bots on a map was very fun, just shredding through a bunch of enemies with a dragon or something. Also I liked the look of some of the guns and maps. I don't think any sequel ideas are in the works, but I'm not sure about that.

I thought it was ok, but I preferred the original.

The biggest problems with it were the terrible aiming, the bad cover system and the respawning enemies.  Anybody who's tried the game on anything higher then normal mode will tell you the game was incrediblly hard too.  I can live without a sequel 2bh, the good came nowhere near to the bad in this game.

The single player sucked. But I loved the multiplayer at the time.

#20 Posted by Bucketdeth (8048 posts) -

I loved this game man, I loved the muliplayer modes they had, like the Timeplitters type infection mode, me and my friends had a blast playing that.

i loved it and want to get it again.

I enjoyed it, especially its multiplayer and the early levels.  However, I thought the stealth-requiring levels and the difficulty were a huge downer.

I thought it was pretty good. The single player was rough, but the multiplayer was pretty cool and it has been a fairly active title (though I haven't played it in nearly a year). All in all it was a neat first experience for the 360.

I liked it but Perfect Dark felt unrefined and lacking the depth of the original N64 classic itself.

Worst thing about the game: It got quite good reviews (9.0 by Greg back at GS) so I bought it when I got my 360 and was pretty disappointed after playing the game the first few hours. I only had cash for release games at the time (2. was PGR3 which was great) and I was really annoyed by the fact that I chose Perfect Dark over Call of Duty 2 or Kameo which are both great games in my opinion. Another odd thing was that you couldn't jump which kind of made the multiplayer modes less appealing.  
All in all I think that game really sucked, still does and always will!

I would like it if it weren't for the abysmal aiming.
