Xbox Evolved: "Perfect Dark hits Xbox 360 through Xbox LIVE Arcade next week on the 17th. Get an early glimpse of what's in store for Joanna's jaw-dropping return. "
Cannot WAIT to get this!
yup, best downloadable game this year
I think many people are going to buy this, play it and then realize, nostalgia is not their best friend.
yea cant wait. was at a friends house earlier this week and we dusted off his n64 for some practice. still as fun as i remember it. cant wait to play this one online. cyclone superdragon laptop gun dy357-lx mauler and falcon 2s :)
My goodness. The person playing this game is a complete tard and has no idea what the definition of "HD video" is. Doesn't take anything away from the game itself but damn man. Know where you're going and blurry much?
Same here when is it coming out BTW.
I prefer Goldeneye, but this works too. The laptop gun is the greatest thing ever!
The release date is clearly above the video...
GAME OF THE FOREVER Day 1!
and I've never had an amazing fps experience like perfect dark, one of the greatest games of all time if not the greatest man look at the xbox version, MAAAN, everything is perfected, framerates, graphics and the soundtrack\sound is clearer than ever unbelievable beating missions on perfect agent is miles better beating modern shooters, you see, in halo, cod, kz2, gears 2 etc..., th emission structure is the same, only more powerful enemies, in PD, the game add missions, the level just become one hell a rollercoaster ride, amazing just amazing game and oh Imagining playing this game on live, split screen vs splitscreen will be a golden experience, nothing beats my selection of weapons and keep in mind that there will be no framrate constraints in the multiplayer, you can add bots, mines, rockets as much as you like 8)
Let's hope this is back to the old Goldeneye/Perfect Dark days...boy i loved those days
Amen to that
Looks pretty damn sweet. Can't believe how good it looks. Too bad Microsoft and Nintendo can't come to an agreement for Goldeneye.
Wait so Microsoft was actually trying to bring Goldeneye? And Nintendo c0ck-blocked em? NOT COOL NINTENDO!
Yea that is a bit unfortunate, this is probably as close as we're going to get to any Goldeneye-like game. Still, I'm enjoying the nice nostalgia boost from this game.
uhhh...you could say that... I guess lmao. But yeah - hopefully it still comes. No pun to the c0ck reference either :/
Would be awesome to see a done up Goldeneye. Ahh, the memories... :D
I read somewhere that Activision is also involved as they hold the rights to the James Bond franchise.
Doesn't look too bad...I'll wait for the trial.
XBLA game of the year.
pfft, downloadable game of the year!
Perfect Dark is awesome. That said, E3 usually unleashes a whole host of new XBLA games for release later in the year. There were Shadow Complex, Splosion Man, Monkey Island and Trials HD last year that came out the latter part of the year. Who knows what we'll get thrown at us this time?
reminded me of DOOM, but seriously, the game does look ugly compare to most modern day shooters. I suppose you can't expect too much from a downloadable.
Only $10 cannot wait plus w/ 8 person multiplayer via live is going to be excellent. Everyone I know with an Xbox 360 is buying this on Wednesday.
wow its only 800 points!? awww man that's is too awesome
lmao looks like poop
Kinda similar to MAG.
I have the superior version of this game on N64, no need to rebuy it in the flopbox 360. It would seem that since Microsoft is doomed in the console industry, they have to remake old games like PD and BK. Brb, GoW3.
I use to play nthis game all the time back in 2002 and 2003, I would always invite a few friends over and all we would do is play the Comabt Simulator and listen to Def Leppard and Blue Oyster Cult. I have never played a game like it since then.
Everybody needs to buy this. I want Perfect Dark 2 to happen.
I guess if you have no other games to play then that might be one reason but shooters have evolved a lot over the years and going back to this game just wouldn't be fun at all. Not to mention a lot of what this game did, Timesplitters just improved upon anyways so it would be better to just go and play Timesplitters.
@Chubear Yeah i kinda agree with you. never the less il still pick it up
we still play PD and JFG and WR on our N64... couldnt have picked a worse time to release this game... I just finished ME2...than FF, BadCo and God of War next week...with those games, who has time for this game I just dont get it. Great price, but who has the time with all those AAA games I just mentioned.
since MS bought them?
Perfect Dark is my 2nd fav Rare game after Golden Eye, and I honestly wouldn't compare neither of their next gen works to either of these if anything its a compliment, since its still Xbox Live exclusive right? you're just looking for a quarrel, well i won't give you one =) enjoy PD in HD, i'll have to stick to my N64 PD =P (see? I loose, now you can be happy)
The sad part is that this is the best game Rare will have ever released on a Microsoft console. Back in the N64 days, they used to pump out solid gold every year. By the gods, what happened to Rare?
Never played this, missed out on it, sadly. Considering getting the HD'd version. I mean...it's so cheap! Still want Serious Sam HD FE though...
The graphics are so last gen and the animation reminded me the N64 days... Everything sucks...
It reminds you of the N64 days because it is in fact an N64 game with improved visuals.
Poor droids our arcade games are better than their retail.
"Ours" you say little asstard bot? I have an N64 and played PD WHEN IT ORIGINALLY CAME.... so how it could be x360 exclusive? But dont worry delusional little patethic retards bots dont have any games and dlc to play in their sh1t-crap-unreliable piece of thrash console, so this game its fine And be careful its more complex than gaylo and Modern warfail so dont be angry if you couldnt pass the first level in easy settings with autoaim HAHAHAHAHAHAHA
Does your N64 copy of Perfect Dark feature 8 player online multiplayer, updated visuals and a smooth as butter framerate? Didn't think so. Must suck that you never see anything this cool on PSN though huh?
Jason, you're a jackass. So are you edoman. Fanboys of any console suck and just don't get it.
both the crapbox and n64 are not HD consoles, anyway
You're a jackass too
He is right, the xbox is not a HD console. And don't get so worked up kid, it would seem that you are angry over such an unimportant matter like this *snicker*
I'm not pissed in any way that the 360 isn't an HD console. And DUH that the 64 isn't. I'm pissed because he said "crapbox". It's childish. I love all systems and hate all fanboys. I can express my anger in the OpenZone and, respectfully, I expect anger to come back at me. Screw fanboys. They just don't get it
I don't get it. They updated things with a higher resolution, why not go the more logical way, and REMAKE the game, with fresh new models and lighting. To be honest, I remember playing like 10 minutes of the game way back in the day. (my older bro and I still couldn't pull ourselves out of Goldeneye multiplayer) I miss split screen gaming, I really do. So few games have it anymore.
Because they didn't want to perhaps? Remaking the game would make it a 60 dollar title and this is being done for a 10 dollar game. Not to mention that Rare isn't even porting this to the XBLA, they're having 4J Studios handle it.
I'm glad they did it this way. Remakes always feel really soulless to me. Like Turtles in Time - it's basically the same game, but they sucked out every bit of charm the original had. Agreed on split screen, though. Left 4 Dead is the only game I can think of that still does it.
...of watching a person that probably hasn't played this before. I found myself saying, "No! Go that way! You missed that thing over there! You were already there DAMNIT!" I still have and play the N64 version but will be getting this too. Looks great. I'll see you on Xbox Live deathmatch. Oh yes.
i want this on my ps3 looks alots of fun
