Goldeneye 007 is fondly remembered by millions of people and its influence on the industry is impossible to ignore. It was this one in which he demonstrated the potential of multiplayer shooters, leading to franchises such as Call of Duty. Without Goldeneye, the existence of Halo, Battlefield, Destiny, Overwatch, and Valorant would likely be very different from what we know. However, paying full attention to 007 makes them forget about one of the brightest shooters in the entire genre. This is Perfect Dark, who turns twenty today.
Launched in 2000, Perfect Dark was the shooter Rare decided to do after Goldeneye 007. The reason is simple: they had to participate in an auction for the rights of James Bond and another company (probably EA) bet much more. So instead of spending a lot of money on the brand, they decided to create their own property. Gathering ideas they thought of during the development of 007, Rare created his own shooter. A science fiction shooter about aliens seeking to recover a damaged ship that is located under the sea.
What makes Perfect Dark so valuable? The role that aliens play in the campaign gave developers the ability to create numerous creative weapons. Half of the weapons in the game are from alien technology, like a sniper that can break through walls or a machine gun with propellers that can quickly rotate to make it a contact weapon. Along with this, his creative campaign has exciting missions and full of entertaining objectives. All this without exciting a large amount of multiplayer content.
Perfect Dark fans are still waiting for a new installment
