Perfect Dark Zero Review

Perfect Dark Zero had high expectations. after its release a lot of people were disappointed, not me. Well actually I was disappointed by a couple of things like the story being shallow and some of the single player levels were repetitive. In one mission you're supposed to escort a scientist to safe room to talk, it always seemed like I was going down the same hall over and over again. Although the online multiplayer was fun, the bot matches weren't nearly as fun. For the most part though PDZ is a fun FPS with great graphics, a pretty fun single player campaign, and an awesome online multiplayer game.

8/10

PDZ is a awesome game to own on the 360.
The story mode is fun, and you can play co-op on it, through live and on one system. BTW Co-op = FTW
Also the xbl part is VERY fun, i really enjoy a good game of infection (aka zombies from Halo 2).
The downside to this game is the cut scenes in one player, they really look bad compared to the gameplay which is gorgeous. Sound is good and replay value is HUGE!!! Be sure to check this game out!

Plenty of Eye candy, Great Single Player and Co-op

This is definitely a must play! Single player is well thought out and challenging (but not unbeatable) with plenty of replayability. Some of the movie scenes dialogue and animations seem funny, but hey we usually watch them once and then skip them the rest of the time anyway. The high point for me is definitely Co-op missions over xboxlive. Those looking for sheer multi- player madness, should probably stick with Halo or another FPS mostly because of a lack of options and quantity of maps. Even with some unique darkop modes and changing environments (which are visually impressive) you'll find replayability somewhat less than other FPS.
Also some may experience some difficulty in the transition from another FPS to PDZ. Its a different type of shooter altogether.

Things I'd change or add

less reflective and light textures
customizable controller settings
more reactive control on zoom
More maps and game modes, more vehicles
More stealth options aka (splinter cell)
Less dependency on headshots for a kill (particularly in missions)
Option to add other gadgets collected within missions (ie threat dectors, xray, and nightvison goggles)

In summary, I'm enjoying PDZ for what it is, miss some of the things it isn't, and am looking forward to Halo3 later this year. Another great RARE game.
