How the Perfect have Fallen 2

If you go to the settings screen when you play the updated port of Rare's seminal N64 shooter, you'll be "treated" to the smallest, most tepid of jokes and references. There are three different control styles to choose from the menu. The first option, called "Classic", attempts to recreate the button configuration as found on the N64 controller. The other two control settings are called "Spartan" and "Duty Calls". Even a game player only peripherally aware of important shooters will realize that...

The name's Dark, Perfect Dark. 0

For almost 10 years, Perfect Dark for the N64 has been my favourite game.  I remember all the hype in the magazines, and painfully awaited it, following all of the development and details as they were released.  I was in the store the day it was released, and was so disappointed when I was asked for ID (I was 14 at the time, but incredibly huge for my age - I'd never had any previous problems).  I was even further disappointed when I discovered that all expansion paks were sold out and I had t...

Perfect Dark is an Impressive XBLA Package 0

Perfect Dark was originally released for the N64 in 2000 as a spiritual sequel to GoldenEye 007. Now it comes to the Xbox Live Arcade as a download for 800 Microsoft points with a cosmetic upgrade to work in HD and a smooth 60 frames per second. People who've played this before should know that the game is nearly unchanged from the N64 version. Those who have never played Perfect Dark might find it a tougher sell to spend points on a ten year old first person shooter. However, even if you're not...

It would be a sin to pass this classic game up. 0

When you think of classic FPS shooters, whether your a hardcore gamer or not, Perfect Dark should be one of the first few games that should appear in your head. If its not one of the first 10 that you think of, please burn every game and system you own and never play games ever again. Perfect Dark may not have been the first shooter or the most unique shooter, but it definitely revolutionized FPS gaming with its multiplayer.Looking back at the game, the graphics may have significantly dated comp...

Perfect Dark XBLA Review 0

By - Craig H.Almost 10 years has passed since Perfect Dark was originally released back on the Nintendo 64. During its time it was one of the premiere FPS games (along with Goldeneye 64) and paved the way for modern day console FPS’s. 4JStudios and Microsoft did an exceptional job at fan service and provide a reminder of where the modern day console FPS’s got their start.For those unfamiliar with Perfect Dark, the story follows a British secret agent named Joanna Dark who is trying to figure out...
