spiredcrescent7's Perfect Dark Zero (Limited Collector's Edition) (Xbox 360) review

Not a selling point for the 360

The long awaited sequel to perfect dark for the N64 does not live up to the hype that it was given by people pulling for rare and Microsoft. Perfect dark starts off by giving you graphics that mimic those of the late current generation. Honestly Halo 2 looks better than this. The sound also doesn't seem to match up with the action at times and the the action really isn't that fun. You have a ton of weapons but non of them seem fun.

I am hoping that this game doesn't hurt Rare to much because this isn't their best work.
