    Does this game deserve a remake?

    It would be awesome if they remade if for XBLA with online play. But I don't know if it would be worth the effort. 

    What do you guys think?

    I really don't think so,unless the original could be ported directly to a downloadable form with updated visuals,with everything else untouched(which is impossible btw since between microsoft,rare,and nintendo shit is split up license wise). The game is classic for its time,but a remake of it in this day and age with an actual overhaul or new content I don't think would work.

    I'd rather have a sequel (a real sequel, not a prequel) that's worth a damn.

    I agree.  It would only be pleasing for nostalgia. But overall there are so many better games, and the genre has almost been perfected since its time.

    They should have just stopped after the very first PD.

    Why the terrible GBC and Xbox games I don't know.

    Maybe. It would be the next best thing to having goldeneye, but that has a tonne of licensing issues which perfect dark does not. So I suppose. Why not.

    Sounds good in theory.

    In practice it would most likely be terrible.

    Rare, Nintendo, and Microsoft have worked things out before, so I think it's certainly possible.

    Yeah what doesn't make sense to me is we heard all about the Goldeneye remake that was going to come to Nintendo Wii and XBLA that was eventually axed by Nintendo, what I don't understand is why it was never just done with Perfect Dark, which even had some of the same multiplayer levels in it.

    How about the a new game in the same universe? Joanna Dark's story seems to be done at the moment unless it should continue with a random mission.

    If they went back to the roots of PD64, yes a remake would be great. I think that Goldeneye is far more deserving, though.

    Maybe...Perfect Dark Zero broke my heart. I read some great scores, then quickly bought it. "Wait a minute, this game blows..." /Sad Face
