New players will find a lot to enjoy and the people who completed speed runs blindfolded will find new layers to enjoy.91Game Revolution
I can’t imagine a better way to revive a classic.90IGN
Of course Perfect Dark is going to feel outdated, it’s 10 years old! But what we have here is one of the best remakes in a long long time.86Console Monster
It is a good chance for Perfect Dark to reach a new audience, and for the gamers who enjoyed the original to play again this classic.85Vandal
Frustrations aside, Perfect Dark is a great example of how a remake should be done.85Game Informer
This is a great game to renew to a modern version. I remember playing this on Nintendo 64. Great missions and great graphics. great job on the renewal100Clone25
If you are a fan of Perfect Dark or even Goldeneye, then you should absolutely buy this game. It is ten dollars well spent.83ZTGD
It’s still not entirely perfect, but as far as ports go this comes really damn close.83Gaming Age
But the experience of playing Perfect Dark for XBLA definitely feels behind the times.82TeamXbox
An awesome, if ancient, shooter that still plays like a dream in multiplayer. We urge you to try it. [June 2010, p.85]81Games Master UK

Perfect Dark’s updated visuals help to keep the game feeling fresh, but some of the design elements are beginning to show their age.75GameSpot
Perfect Dark is worth as a Xbox Live Arcade title. But it’s not the sensation anymore like it was before.75XGN
Perfect Dark lives through its various multiplayer modes and not because of its great graphics. Despite all the cons it is a nice game for a quick round full of action.69GamingXP
Perfect Dark is a classic game, but it may not be as exciting for modern gamers.65Gamer Limit
There’s a good chance you’re just nostalgic if you think this is a great game. The artificial intelligence and the single player mode however have their faults.60Gamereactor Sweden
A nostalgia-fest which hasn’t aged well – but it will still bring a massive smile to the faces of old blokes. [June 2010, p.118]60Xbox World 360 Magazine UK
Despite it being a killer remake, Perfect Dark itself is past its prime.50GameShark
This game was ahead of its time with its amazing graphics and character design. Even though the graphics are no longer up to date, the game still stands as a classic and a must play.70neomoonsevin
