Nice. I've been looking for this for a while. My local BB used to have it for $20, but I never got around to grabbing one.

If you can still find this at toys r us, it goes for about $5.00, its the collectors edition too. Still a good deal on amazon, the multiplayer is awesome.

How can you tell? No one plays this game on Live. Bought this game few months back at Fry's for $8 but have not found one single multiplayer session. I gave up after few days of trying.

Gross exaggeration....the last few months my friends and I have played this...still a number of players that play and it still has a pretty good community...plus bots and 32 player support...very solid multiplayer!

+1 to that. This is an awful, awful game... one of the most disappointing I've ever played. No matter how cheap it is, please don't fall for it, people!

Single player is pretty poor, but I had a good time with multiplayer. Of course, that was summer of '06 when pickings were pretty slim on the 360.

It's just one of those games that was great at the time and hasn't aged well. Halo 3, Gears 1 and 2, Call of Duty and Battlefield all blow it out of the water. Normally I'd say single player is worth it for that price, but the story was just insultingly bad compared to the first Perfect Dark. I can't even recommend this game to big fans at this point in time.

Nothing beats PDZ for playing with bots or a relaxed game with friends. It's just plain fun. I know many, many people that played hundreds of hours in PDZ and enjoyed every minute of it.

I enjoyed this game playing alone. Also, playing against bots are fun and can be challenging. Good game, good price but not really comparable it terms of lasting entertainment to a game like CoD:WaW or something imo.

bought for 5 at toys r us. Have seen at Frys for 8$ repeatedly (with ALOT of copies in stock). Game doesn't seem to be bad... just seems like they over printed it by ALOT (more copies of game than there were consoles originally i think). Yes i'm talking about the Metal-Case version not the regular.

:rofl:


Sorry. This game is to be avoided at all cost, on all difficulties, under all circumstances. Truly. If you were faced with buying and playing PDZ or having Vinnie the Enforcer stop by your place with his baseball bat, you'll want to run from Joanna and welcome Vinnie into your home.

to answer your question directly, yes, it is better on the harder difficulties. just like the original, with higher levels of difficulty comes more objectives, access to more parts of certain levels, and more challenging enemies. on the harder difficulties, the single player game is definitely a hardcore gamer's kind of game. it expects you to look at what you have and figure things out without a lot of hand-holding.

this is probably where the game loses mass appeal. on the easier settings, it seems too simplistic and standard and on the harder difficulties it requires a lot from the player, perhaps too much for most players. for me, it was the right game at the right time. it's the kind of game that gets better the more you play it because you will keep learning all of the little details that make the game more fun. i think this is why so many people are so negative about it...they probably just sat down, played a few levels on easy or normal and decided it was crap and never touched it again. this is an ideal game for patient gamers willing to throw a lot of time into it.

regarding the multiplayer, it was awesome at the time. it was definitely my favorite online game from launch.

as someone who has played this game a lot on all difficulties and modes, i think it is one of the most under-appreciated games of this console generation. yes, the story/acting is ridiculously terrible, but it is so bad, it's good. it has lines like "i'll never complain about garbage again".

You can put me in this group.


Perfect Dark Zero Metacritic Average: 81(Generally favorable reviews)


The only reason people hate PDZ so much is because it wasn't Goldeneye or the first Perfect Dark gameplay with prettier graphics. The campaign mode wasn't mind-blowingly amazing, but it isn't a 'terrible' game by any means, just underwhelming considering Rare's last two shooters. You can find FAR worse games overall just in this generation alone, never-mind on the N64.

It's a great game at $13. It also has a few free maps on the XBLM that are remakes of some Goldeneye multiplayer maps.

I remember buying this and CoD 2 at launch. One of the games was a lot of fun, the other one was PDZ.

You're not funny when you make unreaslistic negative comments about this game. Did it live up to expectations? No. Is the single player good? No. Are there a lot of people playing this online? No. But it is absolutely ridiculous to tell people to avoid this at all costs for under $15. I've easily played ten FPS's on the 360 that are worse than this game. And unlike those games PDZ doesn't have any gamebreaking elements, it isn't frustrating and it actually has varied environments that aren't completely bare. The multiplayer maps are extremely balanced and varied and there are multiple levels and personalities of bots that can be added to enhance multiplayer when you can't get a lot of people in a game.

I like the game just fine. It's nothing revolutionary, but I like it more than the Call of Duty series or Halo 1 (haven't played 2 or 3). But then I like Haze more than those too, which people have an irrational hatred for as well :roll:

As for the story, at least there IS one. It unfortunately uses a modified Halo style (basically) two weapon system, but it does have some fun weapons too.

I wouldn't call it awesome, but it's average at least IMO. It's fun enough if you like FPS, and for the price is worth it IMO. I mean I do like it much more than supposedly "better" games.
