Very readable review, despite it being super long. Very personal too, which is what I enjoyed most about it. Sadly, I did not have a similar experience with the game. =(

Thanks, Marc. Zero isn't that bad, but nor is it brilliant. I wager you played half an hour then quit!

Pretty much. The first level is ugly and boring. I didn't anticipate great things.

It's not close to the best FPS on the 360, though it's also nowhere near the worst.

I'll probably never pick it up again, but I got my money's worth of fun from it.

I played for half an hour then quit. Bought it for $14, ended up trading it in for $8 about a year later. Earned 0/1000 achievements, didn't even bother finishing the first level. Still feel silly for buying it.

That's almost exactly the same experience I had. Though I bought it for a measly $4 (used) and sold it back for $2.

Still have mine. I picked it up years back for £5, so it's more or less without value. But I don't mind keeping hold of it; every now and then it briefly reappears on my local multiplayer rounds.

The first level's not really even a real level; it's a tutoral! You all quit too quick.

Oh, I forgot about the tutorial level. I got past that one. The one where you start on the dock is where I gave up.

This and PGR4 were my favorite 360 Live games. Too bad no one plays them anymore.

Oh yeah, I tried singleplayer and it absolutely blows.

Having recently re-experienced the original Perfect Dark through the XBLA re-release, I decided to take a gamble on Zero since it was dirt cheap. I'm enjoying it but your review does make fair points, particularly about stealth being difficult thanks to insanely resilient and observant enemies. I've been pleasantly surprised by the multiplayer 'combat simulator' though. There's no one playing it, but even the bots are nicely challenging.
