it'one of the hottest Arcade games around with plenty of nostaliga. However I didn't play it that much so I dount I'll get it this time around. If Rare releases and XBLM Arcade version of James Bond's Goldeneye I will most definetely get it since it's a game I probably played for more than 100 hours back on the Nintendo 64. These days of course I only play Xbox. Gotta have soime standards! :)
sorry for the double post - just noticed some different weapons from the original. looks like they are from goldeneye.
can anyone confirm if the goldeneye maps are in like with the original? facility and temple? to the perfect dark noobies out there, you have to try this game type. ffa - map temple - proxy mines and bouncing grenades, then stick one gun with the threat detector. it's proper savage! it's like grenade dodge ball
Finally a decent game gets put on 360. I had to shovel through gallons of craptabulous FPS halo COD crap, but now, finally, it pays off to have a 360. I don't know why I even bothered to get the 360 two years ago, two years of my life WASTED. I should have been playing the n64 all this time getting ready for this epic masterpiece to be re released on the now decent 360. By the way this is the last nail in the coffin for wii and ps3 if you ask me. I would rather choke on a over salted dog pile than own that crap now...
This is exactly the kind of thing I'd like to see alot more of, I love the fact that they decided to stick with the old engine and just improve textures and whatnot, If they wanted to do a complete graphics overhaul, why not just make Perfect Dark 3? I'd much rather have a $10 to 15$ updated classic than new $60 garbage. Sooo your working on Blast Corps now right?
PS RE: GodOfSyn. Good PD knowledge. Just have to say though, the remake of the temple level....not a new addition. Its unlockable even in the original in addition to a second remake from Golden Eye, one of my most memorable gaming moments ever....the Facility a.k.a Goldeneye's Facutly. Though, that'd be hellza nice if they cared to develop a new multi map, or even a new campaign mission. But, I really shouldn't ask for any more, PD rerelease is exactly what I've been pineing for for some time now!
to this day, I have still never been able to recapture the gaming greatness I remember from back in the days of Perfect Dark!!! Many amazing games have come out since, but PD is still probably my most favorite! Updated graphics, even if only HD, frame rate, and textures, are all I need to be content with an already amazing game! And now you say.....xbox online?!?!?!?! Holy f**k!!! Hell yes!!! So long as all the features are kept intact and I get online n nicer graphs, PD can't go wrong!!! This will be probably the first and only Live Arcade game I count the days down until and wait for a midnight release....it'll be interesting celebrating a release from the comfort of my own home for once ;) Ha ha
As long as the keep the laptop gun so u can place down the turret and the gun that shot through walls ill be happy...and the mines and bouncing grenades.
Cant wait to get this game .. Lol the n 64 game was totally awesome .. I remember sticking proximity mines to bots .. also camping with my buddies and laptop guns :D! so awesome .. the only thing I´m wondering is if it will be possible to play with friends over xbox live against bots
Cant wait for this. I don't care if the graphics could be better, the gameplay is top notch and not many games come close to it. For me a definate purchase
They really should've taken this game and given it the graphics of Perfect Dark Zero...that would've equaled a day one purchase for me. I'm not a complete graphics freak but damn, I spent a lot on my LCD TV and my latest gen system, so I want games to look good on it, at least. Anyways, after seeing how badly this game has aged, I'll wait for a Deal of the Week on it...nostalgia can only get a game so far with me, especially with much better looking and equal to or better playing games out already and coming soon.
@bergerkings Rare made Goldeneye and then made Perfect Dark, they were actually offered to do Tomorrow Never Dies but turned it down because they didn't want to get caught up in the Bond universe. The look, sound, gameplay etc.. is nearly identical to Goldeneye, though Perfect Dark required you to get the expansion pack for extra memory for your N64 so you could play at 640x480 which was (HD) back in the day which is now standard resolution on 480i TV's lol which is not HD of course. Anyways they rehauled the resolution to full 1080p and it will run at 60 fps meaning it will be super smooth and sharp. They even added online multiplayer and leaderboards, it comes out March 17th and will totally rock!!! Lastly, they have a remake of the Temple multiplayer map in Perfect Dark which is why you see it at the end lol
hmmm im glad this is coming out... everyone wants a golden eye remake (me included) but it wont happen... this might be rare's way in bringing us that... especially the MP... did anyone else see what looked like the temple map from golden eye toward the end? and they look and sound very very similar... i never played the original perfect dark so i'm not sure on how similar they actually are but sound effects and the overall look reminds me of golden eye.
Perfect Dark on my 360?....yes please!! I've got this on my N64 but then i wouldn't say no to a HD remake. Also, to all those complainers of the game not staying true to the original, just look at all the other games they brought to XBLA from other consoles like REZ: apart from the addition of 5.1, some new visual FX and HD, it remained all the same gameplay remained untouched. (i have this on the dreamcast) so i'm stoked to see previous gen games brought into HD
@ themc_7 it won't happen as they don't legally own the James bond licence, they sold it after they made golden eye to EA and then sold on to activision in 2006. so as much as everyone wants it, it will most likely not happen.
Other remakes I'd love to see, in ranking order... 1. Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest 2. Medievil 3. C&C Red Alert 2 Imagine if they added more levels to the secret world in DKC2 Imagine if they simply released RA2 for play on PSN and XBL
A great idea...thankfully its only 10 bucks, otherwise it ain't happening lol. These older shooters did NOT age well. If you have a working N64 fire it up and see what I mean. I can already see people camping with the farsight, laptop gun, and my personal favorite...proximity mines! I break into cold sweat thinking about kamikaze sim and his fists of fury/point blank grenade launcher XD.
One minute you're in a Blade Runner setting doing super shady corporate espionage, the next you're fighting aliens! I love this game! Definitely worth 10 bucks for a chance to play the king of FPS's again.
one of the best games ever.now they need to remake the single player.i went out and bought that graphic booster required to play this game on the 64 when i got this game
come on lets stop saying silly things just for the sake of it, the N64 version will not always be the best, yes it's one of my favourite games of all time but don't let nostalgia blur your memories, it ran like an absolute bag of turd especially on 4 player split screen with lots of bots and the N64 controller was stupid, big, clumbersome and fiddly, you had to press a button to look up or down for christs sake. Personally I prefereed it running on an N64 emulator with an xbox 360 pad so the buttons were configured like a modern FPS on a console. sod the graphics it's all about the playability and depth of gameplay modes with this game and the fact it will hopefully run flawlessy, this should be the dogs dangly bits.
Won't ever beat the summer playing it and Golden Eye with my brothers and neighbors on the 64 but would love to go back and play it.. and not have to find the box my 64 is in lol :)
Sooo many memories. Found myself remembering every single gameplay scenario and calling out weapon names. Hope this comes out on Games for windows live too.
Hey, stop complaining about graphics! If all you need is outstanding visuals then simply go watch some movies. This is a classic game.
A) they maxed out the code making it 1080p so they couldnt do anything to the models, B) ITS PERFECT FRIKKIN DARK what more needs to be said and, C) its 10 dollars...its going to be amazing, i still play mine on my N64 i dont care about the graphics but its a nice update for 10 bucks, stop whining
wow, that looks REALLY bad. not only do the graphics appear to be subpar, but it doesn't even appear to know if it is taking itself seriously or not. And in this age of near photo-real graphics in increadibly well scripted shooter/action games... I dunno' 'bout this one.
I love this game, but come on, the graphics look barely updated at all. Seems kinda lazy to me. They could have done a total animation and model overhaul instead of just making the textures look better.
