Step into the Dark... As Carrington Institute's most promising new Agent, Joanna Dark must uncover the truth behind the dataDyne Corporation's recent technological breakthroughs - breakthroughs which could have serious consequences for mankind.
The Perfect Dark game is your chance to save the world from the evils of virtual international corporations. This game for the Nintendo 64 takes you through nine levels and 17 challenging missions. You will assume the persona of a talented secret agent to keep the world safe from the machinations of the evil corporation dataDyne.
Gameplay follows the former bounty hunter on behalf of Carrington, Joanna Dark. She aims to stop the truly dark side, dataDyn and the Skedar, from winning. The game's campaign mode follows her through this mission. In this original first-person shooter game, the player crouches, ducks, leans, and drops from ledges as Dark. The character uses a wide range of weapons to take on her enemies. To make it more realistic, the damage taken during combat is location based. One of the prominent features of Perfect Dark is the advanced weaponry and a range of gadgets available. With over 40 weapons to choose from and customize, building your artillery collection in Perfect Dark is an adventure. Special cheats make this an even more exciting challenge.
For a player more interested in social gaming, Perfect Dark also features three multiplayer systems. The multiple systems include co-operative, counter operative, and the combat simulator mode. The screen splits both horizontally and vertically when there is more than one player. Computer controlled players and simulators can also be used with each pre-programmed and assigned preset behaviors. An Expansion Pak accessory is required for the full multiplayer options.
