Well, I've been kinda semi-addicted to Perfect Dark for the past few days (mostly the combat simulator now. Already Beat the game), and decided to ask; Which did you prefer, Goldeneye, or Perfect Dark? Both are easily classic FPS's, and are great, but for me, Perfect Dark is better in my eyes. Cool levels, music, and weapons and charactors. Just more 'cooler' than Goldeneye was. Goleneye is great too, but Perfect Dark is my favorite of the two.

I wish oh wish, I had Goleneye. But alas, I do not.

Well I own both, and personally I've always favored Perfect Dark over the original Goldeneye. Most of my friends do too, but there's some out there that just like being Bond over Joana Dark.

Perfect Dark was just more my style, futuristic, dark and eerie, etc. And I think it had a lot cooler weapons, like the Slayer rocket launcher, the laptop gun, which gave new meaning to strategy in multiplayer.

Last I remember, I had well over like ... 200 hours of gametime for multiplayer, yeah me and my friends were obsessed.

I was also able to beat PD on Perfect, which in Goldeneye, I could never beat 00 Agent.

The Duel level was always fun, nothing better than getting a headshot on Trent.

PD > The Eye.

One of my favorite defenses in multiplayer was this:
- Find a corner / niche hiding place.
- Set proximity mines around it.
- Place a laptop gun above you.
- Pull out your Slayer, and take people down.

While you're sitting there comfortably, chasing people with rockets, if they try to go for you ... hopefully the mines and the laptop gun will stop them. Just hope nobody you're up agains't is good with a grenade launcher or anything.

Oh i beat you by a long shot xeo...i've got 2 months of gametime in PD multiplayer XD I was really obsessed to attempt and beat a bunch of perfect and dark bots on multiple levels.

OH nah nah nah, that game is so awesome, i don't know how people could prefer eye over dark, dark is made by the same dev. team, with the same concept, but with more stuff and makes it an even more appealing game.

My favorite guns would have to be the Magsec 4, Callisto, Super Dragon, and the pyschoactive gun, man was it fun to turn enemies into allies in 1 player mode

I have both, beaten both, gotten most cheats for both but played a lot more Perfect Dark because you can actually put ennemies on multiplayer.

And the multiplayer makes sense (it's a combat simulator, not just reckless killing). More weapon, good plot. Man I loved this game.

Recently my friend and I were argueing over what was better, the Dragon, or the SuperDragon.

With common sense, I'd say the SuperDragon is much better, but you have to admit ... throwing the Dragon and waiting for someone to pick it up thinking it's a gun or ammo ... then "Boom", that's pretty funny.

I seriously spent so much time on this game. Beat all the difficulties, went through it again on co-op with the computer, everything. Ah, good times. I'd say this game is still probably the best Multiplayer Console FPS, with Halo coming after it. (Don't want to be a fanboy, but I love Halo, but if I had to choose one I'd easily pick PD)

Did anyone here beat all 30 Challengs "without" cheating?

I sure as heck did.

I got as far as 24, but couldn't go further....

Man those one hit kills annoy me. (My friend did beat it, but he was just lucky )

Edit: Also, I got Perfect Dark as soon as it was released.

Ah, the great old One Hit Kill games, those were awesome in both PD and Goldeneye. Honestly, they don't work out too well in other games. My friends and I tried to manipulate the settings and make kind of a mock "One Hit Kill" gametype for Halo 2, and it didn't work out too well.

Yeah, my friends dad bought me Perfect Dark, brand new, for $70 out of nowhere. He's a huge gamer, and in the past he's given me games like Blaster Master and junk, knowing I'm a gamer too, so I guess he just thought it would be nice?

HoboConductor: You seem a little dangerous in this game. :p

I've never played Perfect Dark.

In GoldenEye, though, I was pretty much invincible as long as we were in a big, open level, and I had a sniper rifle. Or, a small level and I had grenades...


Too bad you couldn't have both sniper rifles and grenades in multiplayer.

Yeah, but I'd say ... well for me and now at least, Perfect Dark and Goldeneye are a little hard to go back to.

Adjusting to the graphical style of that time, and the good old crazy N64 controller, it takes some time.

But meh, not that long I guess.

... Never played Perfect Dark?

not my fault, not my fault! The stores sucked, and I didn't even get an allowance at the time. We lived too far away from a real game store, and... well, Wal-Mart sucks.

Well I remember seeing the game recently for sale for $7 at Gamestop, someone would have to be stupid NOT to pick that up.

So yeah, if you're lucky enough to see it for a price like that, don't let it slip.

I don't have my N64 anymore. All my games sucked for single-player, and I don't have enough friends to enjoy multiplayer.

Bah. There's always emulation, when I get a better computer. =/

Well that's where Perfect Dark comes in, bots. And they are actually pretty fun to play with.

But yeah, I guess you could play it via emulation, just try to play it sometime, you won't regret it.

Although it certainley seemed like a total pwnage gun, the Reaper failed me on more than one occasion. I'd spot a enemy, and once the thing really started to spin and fire, I've already been killed by whatever rifle they got.

My favorite Combat Level would probably have to be Area 52, Temple, or Grid. In Temple, the main room could get pretty crazy at times.

[Temple, main room]
*Xeogred throws laptop gun on to the wall as far as he can.

Goodbye.

Seriously, with bots ... if you have like a ton on, just simply do that, and well, you'll be getting 50 kills in no time.

My friend and I would always do this and see who could rack up the most kills, of course while this was going on, we were killing anyone in our path, eachother, and destroying eachothe's laptop guns in the main room.

Yeah, the Laptop gun is pretty cheap,a dn can really rack up the kills, or say protect you, as you Farsight snipe other folk. Or you could always hurl a bunch of proximity pinball grenades into a crowded area, and get some easys kills the way.

Holy crap dude, I totally forgot about the Proximity grenades ... those were hilarious.

And the Farsight just plain rocked, my friends always complained that they were cheap, but it does take some skill to be a good shot with those ... minus the Dark Sims, even up close.

Dang, I seriously think I'm going to dust out my N64 tonight to play this game.

I love perfect dark. I think the multiplayer is great and is a bit better then Goldeneye. But I have more fun playing Goldeneye. Goldeneye was just a game me and my friends loved to play for hours. I know each are just about the same except for the story line. But my friends and I just loved the James Bond themed shooter.
