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

Did You Know?


The game's release date was delayed twice during it's production. It was originally intended to be released in December 1999. It was then delayed until the 10th of April 2000 because Rare didn't want to release an unfinished game. It was then delayed again until the 30th of June 2000 because there were still glitches that needed to be fixed. See more »


On mission 1.3 when Dark is about to leave, the guards that stop her reload their pump shotguns by loading it as if it was a bolt action rifle. See more »


Jonathan: I'm sorry. I didn't realize you wanted him to shoot you. I can call in some more guards if you like.

User Reviews

Probably the best game ever.
12 September 2004 | by (England) – See all my reviews

Perfect Dark played on an N64 with the 4MB expansion pack is truly and utterly one of if not THE best video game ever. Goldeneye was fantastic but this has took it to the next level. Games like Quake 3, Doom 3 or Unreal Tournament might have better graphics but when it comes to sheer gameplay Perfect Dark is the king. The graphics for it are maybe not quite as polished as its predecessor but the amount of great ideas are unrivaled in video game history. Loads of cool meaty weapons (got to love the missile with the camera!). It's over 4 years old and still beats any first person shooter by far. Even though the sequel is to be released sometime in the future on the X-Box i doubt it will play the same as the original did. The missions are so cool and laid out well with a good story and character interaction. The thing that kept me coming back for more was the death matches with up to 8 players playing at the same time (human or sim) which was especially cool because there are so many modes and tweaks to make you play Perfect Dark for years to come. Forget Doom 3 with all it's eye candy but no depth. Keep with this little baby stuck in your N64. I found that i've never took the cartridge out the slot in over 2 years. LOL!
