A truely brilliant game, perhaps in some ways, an updated Goldeneye. This game was made by 'Rare'. They made Goldeneye, Banjo Kazooie and DK. Set in the future, Agent Perfect Dark is an athletic, attractive, female Agent not to be messed with. Joanna was trained at Carrington Institute, and passed the exams with flying colours. One of the best features of this game is that each weapon has a second function (by holding B). Also, the intelligence of the enemies was advanced for its time. The missions are futuristic and can be very difficult, especially on the hardest difficulty. There are around 15 levels, all very big, and well thought out. As ... Read the complete review

Developed by Rare (the same developers behind the sensational Goldeneye), Perfect Dark is essentially a Science Fiction version of the game! You play as Joanna Dark, a female operative who must search and destroy people from around the world! You have access to your mansion (where you have a variety of options to do such as practising on a shooting range or riding a jetbike)! The main game consists of a series of missions, ranging from having to rescue a Doctor (who is inside a computer), to freeing an alien that has been captured by the government! You have a large range of weapons, each with its own unique secondary ability. For example the 'Dragon' is a ... Read the complete review

After the massive success of Goldeneye on the Nintendo 64, Rare set about creating a follow-up game. Enter Perfect Dark, a sequel which doesn't quite match the heady heights of its predecessor. Perhaps the biggest let down for fans of Goldeneye is that in Perfect Dark you don't get to play as Bond. Instead you play as Joanna Dark, tasked to bring down an evil corporation. Due to this not being a true James Bond game, Perfect Dark lacks the iconic weapons and locations that made Goldeneye so much fun to play. That doesn't mean that the game doesn't offer some cool features. There are some very cool weapons in the game, such as a laptop which you can attach to ... Read the complete review

This game reared only toward the end of the N64 lifespan, the consol that gave us Goldeneye to which in many ways this feel like a sequel. Perfect Dark takes a Lara Croft type strong female character, gives her a haircut and puts her up against evil galactic aliens and a giant greedy US corporation. You play as Joanna Dark a special agent working the Carrington institution- run by wealthy Scotsman Daniel Carrington. Your mission if you choose to accept it is to (though you don't really have a choice) is to penetrate the corporate DataDyne building to steel valuable information on their fringe science researching and possible alien connection. You are dropped ... Read the complete review

Rare succeeded in the rare (no pun intended) feat of making a brilliant videogame adaptation of a film with their seminal FPS Goldeneye, and so their next effort, Perfect Dark, was hugely hyped up as the next "killer app" for the N64. While not quite as amazing as the hype would let you believe, nor as great as Goldeneye, it is a fun game and one of the best for the console. Visually, though, you might be a bit disappointed that not much has been enhanced beyond Goldeneye. The visuals are solid but they just don't push the boat out, and when there's a lot of enemies on screen, you will encounter considerable frame rate drops and chugging, which not ...
