Perfect Dark’s excellence comes through in the co-op mode. Every mission can be done together with a friend – online or on split-screen. There aren’t two Joanna Darks, though. One of the players takes control of another character, sometimes not anywhere near his friend. Working across a map and puzzling your way through to each other is the best experience in the game. If you’re not experiencing co-op, you’re not even getting half the game’s value.
Perfect Dark Zero is a tactical first-person shooter that continues the story of Joanna Dark, from Perfect Dark on the Nintendo 64. Offering vastly improved visuals and the best co-op mission-based gameplay on the Xbox 360, this launch title has staying power.
