    The best Nintendo 64 game without a doubt.

    The best FPS ever created on any system. I can't count the number of hours I have played this alone, and with friends.

    This game blows my mind every time I sit down and play. Despite new consoles coming out with better graphics and bigger sounds, this game has completely unparalleled gameplay. The missions call upon you to be a variety o... Read Full Review

    Perfect Dark is easily the best FPS on the N64, and probably one of the best FPSs of all time!

    Perfect Dark really is lacking nothing, the game is designed well and the gameplay is amazing. It has a solid storyline for single player, but the multiplayer aspect of the game is really the best part. The single pl... Read Full Review

    Blondes are hotter.

    This game had a lot to live up to, namely the success of Goldeneye. It stars a female this time and deals more with sci-fi themes. I thought the ability to walk about the complex where you first sign in was of good desig... Read Full Review

    Perfect is its name, and thats the game. From the most intelligent developers to date !!

    Why is this game so good? One tell-tale sign is because so many FPS games have tried to copy parts of it since then, but daren’t copy the whole game. On release the game appeared too expensive with the requirement for y... Read Full Review

    Boring, frustrating, and nothing like the console version.

    I bought this game because of its name to be honest and it is not at all a good game. The entire thing is a frustrating trial and error affair full of cheap deaths and unfairly advantaged enemies. Even if this weren't tr... Read Full Review

    Note: This is only a mini review, or actually just a 2 sentence thing.

    Perfect Dark for the Game Boy Color is no where near the level of greatness that is Perfect Dark for the Nintendo 64. But no matter what, you should own this game. It adds tons of new content to Perfect Dark for the N64 ... Read Full Review
