  • Very excited for this. I distinctly remember in 8th grade waiting for the release date for the original Perfect Dark. I don't care what people say, but Perfect Dark was superior to Goldeneye because it was a sequel in terms of the style and gameplay. That doesn't mean I didn't absolutely love Goldeneye when it was around, however. Also the multiplayer was fantastic and a huge upgrade from Goldeneye, not to mention the AI in it were brutal. Die-hard fans will remember Perfect Dark actually had the original Goldeneye guns as a cheat if you completed a speed run on one of the levels.
