A first-person shooter that mixes spy and sci-fi, Perfect Dark is both a thoroughly engrossing one-player experience and a riotously fun multiplayer romp. Easily one of the best games of its genre on any video game console, this long-awaited follow-up to GoldenEye 007 is a must-have for Nintendo 64 owners–and a damn good reason to be one if you’re not.
I guess we’re too far removed from the generation that Perfect Dark comes from for me to really make a good connection with this. The game is rough and the story is limited and the VO work is just unfortunate. I wasn’t able to finish this one, it’s just too much.
