A female spy named Joanna Dark who received the highest grade ever from her spy training at Carrington Institute is sent to rescue a Doctor Caroll who sent a distress call to Carrington a few days before. Doctor Caroll was apparently being forced to do work for a company called dataDyne that he thought to be wrong and dangerous and needed to be rescued. The story escalates from there going everywhere from Chicago to Area 51 and even getting involved with aliens in this futuristic spy tale. Written by WildkatSam

Perfect game
16 December 2005 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

"Goldeneye" was one of the first games released for the N64 and was a huge success. Many gamers still consider it one of the finest first person shooters ever made. The success of the game was mimicked in the years to come with more and more Bond games emerging, but none of them lived up to the originality and intense gameplay of "Goldeneye." But in 2000, Rareware (the makers of Goldeneye) announced plans for a sequel of sorts named "Perfect Dark" - based on almost identical gameplay, it would be about a female secret agent/spy, and when the game was released it was an instant success (it was also one of the first games to make use of the "Rumble Pak").

"Perfect Dark" is a brilliant FPS and very unique. It mixes different genre staples - spies, aliens, UFOs, puzzles, everything. The sequel is coming out soon for XBox 360 and I'm thinking of purchasing an XBox platform just to play the sequel - that's how impressed I was with the original "Perfect Dark" video game.
