Perfect Dark looks near-perfect

In owning a Nintendo 64 during my formative years, I subscribed to the age-old philosophy of “less is more.” While I did not own as many games for that system as was the case for my original PlayStation, the games that I did own (Super Mario 64, Kirby 64, Banjo-Kazooie and Banjo-Tooie), I made sure to obtain the maximum amount of enjoyment that I could get from them.

Although I did not have the opportunity to own it, I greatly enjoyed the opportunity to rent Perfect Dark. When I played its newest iteration on the 360, I had fun…but felt that something was missing.

Rare’s decision to port their original title to the 360 is a good one; however, maybe “port” is the wrong word. Considering these screenshots and the ones shown by Kotaku, Rare is certainly doing their best to make sure that this title will achieve perfection.

In addition to looks, the game will also include “specific Xbox Live features” along with all the original features included in the game.

Whether Rare succeeds in making this version of Joanna Dark’s adventure perfect again will be up to gamers. They will have the chance to judge when it becomes available winter of this year.
