If you're looking for a great first person shoot-em-up game then
look no further. Perfect Dark is probably the best one you can, and
will find. With awesome graphics and sound you'll feel like your in
the game itself. The blood looks so real and the swears are so clear
that you hold in your breath so a passing enemy doesn't hear you and
you wet your pants in a huge fire fight. It's completely addictive.
Graphics: 99 out of 100
The graphics are so unbelievably real that when an enemy gets shot
through the head you see a blood splat against the wall. Then when
he/she falls to the floor even more blood gushes out. Everything in the
surrounding area is so realistic. For example if you shoot metal the
bullet hole looks like you shot metal and if you soot wood the bullet
hole looks like you shot wood. (P.S. you know how the bodies in
Goldeneye disappeared ten seconds after you killed the guy well, in Perfect
Dark the bodies stay for about ten minutes.)
Music and Sound: 100 out of 100
The Music and sound is so extremely clear you sometimes want swear
right back at the game for calling you a **BEEP**. I have never heard that
quality sound from a video game before. You can hear your self walking
the crackling energy from the energy beams. You can hear the computers
working a sipers rifle, you can even hear the elevator going up and down.
It's just a great experience overall.
Game Challenge: 100 out of 100
Perfect Dark offers tons of challenge but people that get frustrated
easily shouldn't let the challenge get in the way of having fun. For
example instead of trying to get past the first mission in single player
you could get your friend to help you in co-operative. In the solo-missions
there are three levels of difficulty Agent (super easy) Special agent (More
than a casual gamer can handle), and perfect agent.
Game Play-Fun: 100 out of 100
Perfect Dark is not just a great game in single player you'll have one heck
of a time in multi player even if your playing alone. In multi player there
are cpu controlled characters (I'm not going to get into that right now the
first wave for my perfect dark tournament will come in less than fifteen
minutes). Any way you will have hours (maybe even days) straight of
enjoyments. The scenarios include King of the hill, pop a cap, hold the brief
case and your out and out bloody combat.
Overall: 100 out of 100
