    A great First-Person Shooter for Xbox 360.

    Perfect Dark Zero is one of my favorite release titles for the XBox 360. The graphics are gorgeous, the main character has personality, and it's a good combo of shooting, stealth and puzzle solving. I've been testing... Read Full Review

    Graphics are great, but that's where it ends.

    As the console's first first person shooter, a lot was expected from it. Before it came out the screenshots looked great and gameplay looked compelling, so it was one the games I was most looking forward to for the XBOX ... Read Full Review

    AN XBOX 360 classic

    I heard that this one is one of the best FPS for XBOX 360 and I ordered it to play it. Well, the gameplay is simple, you have tasks that you must perform with your gun. As a female agent, you travel round the globe to s... Read Full Review

    Aside from being Perfect Dark It sucks

    What happened? Perfect Dar was a great game! This "Next-gen" Sequel is horrible! First of all, they changed Joanna Dark`s character model. Fine. It sucks, but I can deal with that. But the bad parts show up. The gamepla... Read Full Review

    Perfect Dark Zero is better than most would have you believe, but it could have been so much more.

    Perfect Dark Zero is a prequel to the original Nintendo 64 shooter and puts you in the tennis shoes of a young Joanna Dark learning the ropes about espionage from her father as they get mixed up with the likes of dataDyn... Read Full Review

    This game is something unique

    The campaign's plot is non-existent. It's that bad. The gameplay is what makes this game worth any salt. There are 13 missions total in the campaign and I was just beating my head against the wall as I drug myself throug... Read Full Review

    Perfect Dark Zero may not fill the legendary shoes of it's predecessor, but it's still a fun shooter you can appreciate.

    Pros: -Solid campaign -Good multiplayer that features plenty of different modes and customization options, can be played with up to 32 players online and features bots for offline -Good variety of weapons all with mul... Read Full Review

    Perfect Dark Zero's excellent combat and great multiplayer more than make up for any issues.

    Perfect Dark Zero is a prequel to the original N64 classic. While I wouldn't say this is as good as Perfect Dark, it's still a damn good game that is under-appreciated. The weakest element in PDZ is the story. It's poorl... Read Full Review

    What Would Elvis Do?

    The original Perfect Dark was so darn good that when I saw this for a measly twenty bucks I couldn't pass it up. I spent a good year on the original--it was an all-purpose shooter. Even if you were alone, the multiplayer... Read Full Review

    PDZ...Pretty Disappointing...Zebra? (I don't like it, okay!)

    Perfect Dark Zero is a prequel to the 2000 N64 hit, Perfect Dark, but hey, you could've fooled me! The game is nothing like the previous installment. Joanna Dark is no longer a tough, respectable, British agent. Now, she... Read Full Review

    Awful game

    Basically they completely gutted the original Perfect Dark, removing most of your options, totally changing the story (Joanna was originally a British secret agent, now she is an American teeny-bopper), and essentially m... Read Full Review
