I’ve been waiting a long time for Joanna Dark to make a second appearance, and on the whole Perfect Dark Zero makes the wait seem worthwhile. I’m not going to pretend that PDZ doesn’t have faults because it does, but I have still found myself playing this game more than any other launch title.
The single player missions are challenging enough to keep you playing, while Perfect Dark fans like myself will want to see how Joanna ends up at the Carrington Institute.
With Kameo, Rare proved that it could make a game with unparalleled visuals, but distinctly lacking gameplay. With Perfect Dark Zero Rare has managed a far better balance. Ultimately, if you’re thinking about what games to pick up with your X360, make sure that PDZ is on your list.
