The Very Definition of "Meh" 0

Rare may be one of the most legendary developers in the history of videogames, but they are also notorious for taking their sweet time in getting projects from the development phase to the store shelves.  Kameo, the other Rare 360 launch title, was initially an N64 game, so that should give you an idea of how long they take.  It's been five and a half years since we saw Joanna Dark on the N64 (and over EIGHT years since GoldenEye...feelin' old yet?) and although much of the original team is no ...

Beauty is only skin deep 0

The good: Good multiplayer - great sound - Co-op.The bad: Graphics are good but everything looks so shiny even the dirt is - weak story - boring campaign - guns in multiplayer are very weak - some missions are very confusing.You play as Johanna dark who is some sort of agent but its never really explained as to what type of agent.The story is weak.It turns out some bad guys have gotten a hold of some sort of weapon that could help them take over the world.And of course you have to take them out....

Gamer Referees And PS2 Caliber Visuals 0

Remember the unofficial sequel to Goldeneye that everyone seemed to pass over?  You know, that Rare title featuring a slender, red-headed chick?  No?  Well I don't blame you.  Despite receiving rave reviews, Perfect Dark was passed over by many due to the launch of the PS2 and the drought of quality titles for the N64.  The title was also plagued by horrible slowdown, so even its inventive weapons and co-op multiplayer couldn't save it.  By the title's small group of fans, Perfect Dark was well ...

A great game that every Xbox 360 owner should play! 0

Perfect Dark Zero has been labeled as the "Love it or Hate it" game of the Xbox 360. However, many of the "hate it's" have been derived from gamers who have made inaccurate comparisons to other games and also from gamers unable to adapt to the game play and tendencies of the game. While not perfect, PDZ is a game that every Xbox 360 owner should play, if not own. The story, while not entirely strong, does give you a reason to keep moving forward. It doesn't always make sense, but it does provid...

Good shooter 0

Being one of the most anticipated and wanted games available at launch for Microsoft’s brand new console, Perfect Dark Zero certainly had everyone’s hopes up that it would certainly deliver in terms of perfection. Brought to us by Rare, the company that gave us the infamous Goldeneye for the Nintendo 64, and of course Perfect Dark for the same system, the game certainly had the force behind it to make it quite an experience. Perfect Dark Zero is a game 4 years in the making, but was it really wo...

A good bunch of ideas 0

The Zone Reviews : Perfect Dark Zero.ok, a little words from your reviewer. All my reviews as stated in my blog are on fully played games, so you can be sure all my opinions have fundamentals, and also I review games for the game itself, not taking into account if its a sequel or not, so new gamers to a franchise can play them in full experience, so dont be surprised if I give high scores to sequels that do not improve lots on the series, enough said lets get it on.The comment.Perfect Dark, a la...

Perfect Dark Zero Review 0

When I first decided upon purchasing an Xbox 360, there were three games I ordered for it, Need for Speed Underground, Kameo and this. Perfect Dark Zero soon became one of my most loved games of all time, Why you ask? Lets take a look./* Firstly I must say I didn't play the previous Perfect Dark for the Nintendo 64, so I cannot compare this version to any of its predecessors. */Single PlayerI popped the game into my console on December 2nd to be greeted by high octane dance music as the introduc...

A great game, but it doesn't really live up to the original. 0

If this was a stand alone game, I would just say, "Hey, this is a pretty cool game, but its got some problems". However, this isn't a stand alone game, this is a sequel to what many including myself consider to be one of the best shooters of all time. So this game is going to be held up to higher standards, and it is going to suffer for it.The graphics are very good for a launch game, and showcase the potential of the Xbox 360 well. Lighting is heavily used in this game, and seems to be what the...

Not a selling point for the 360 0

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. Using cover seems more of a hassle than any as it doesn't even c...

Perfect Dark Zero - Fun, but not perfect. 0

Overview:---------------Fun to play but does suffer from bad graphics, slow frame rate, and frustration. The Good: ----------------Overall fun to play. The weapons are great and the secondary firing option on each weapon is pretty creative and fun.The gadgets you use along the way are fun too. Threat detector goggles show all enemies and bad things with a red outline while good guys are outlined in green.   This is really useful because the red outline makes the enemies stick out and very easy ...

Perfect Dark Zero review 0

This is my review for Perfect Dark Zero for the Xbox 360.This game has been out since the very launch of the Xbox 360 and I have had it for a little under a year now and I still play it on the multiplayer with my friends. The career mode is very unique in the way that its set out and basically gives you different missions and levels depending on the level of difficulty you have chosen to do the level on. Like on easy there might be 3 objectives and then you try it on hard and there’s like 7 diff...

Amazing Shooter 0

Game play : Perfect Dark Zero is a game that came out in the year 2005. I purchased the game and I didn't play the campaign completely and didn't bother on completing it because I beat a lot of games in short time. Recently I picked it up again and gave it a second chance and I started playing it. You start as Joanna dark a bounty hunter. The story itself is pretty dull there is not much. Saving mankind and theres this enemy Zhang Lei is the one who tries to take over the humanity and you try to...
