Perfect Dark review

Reviewed April 03, 2005

John L says: "I'd be remiss if I didn't mention Perfect Dark's wicked multiplayer mode, one packed with enough depth and nuance to make bland crapfests like Timesplitters 2's (admit it, you only liked playing as the monkey) squirm. The design is rad; levels such as the glass-intensive Grid, which features two large rooms connected by an elevator and some tight corridors, never fail to amuse, and the weapons fit just as neatly into this as they do the solo campaign."

And yes, if you’re wondering, I’m going to be making a lot of Goldeneye references in this review; PD is a sequel, so it should be better than its precessor. "
