This is more for those who have played Perfect Dark and especially on the N64. Clearly PD64 was a masterpiece and arguably one of the games of the generation. It sits on a 97 meta and basically continued the FPS train for consoles before Halo did. One of my all time favourite games ever made due to its complex design and stealth and it masters everything with the only fault being the N64 hardware which is saying something since that was the most powerful system at the time even compared to the most powerful PCs. 

Now with the rumours of Joanna Dark that will be a TPS game, I actually like the direction of going TPS and if they can turn Perfect Dark into a Splinter Cell/MGS mixed with Tomb Raider than my hype will be though the roof. PD has so much potential and I am hoping they make this PD game a serious and dark story based off the N64 game and straying away from Zero. 

As a fan of the series, this is a dream game if they can nail it.

If it's true I expect to be massively disappointed. The reason I enjoyed the original Perfect Dark wasn't the story or anything it was the multiplayer modes with bots, something that all devs seemingly ignore completely these days and I expect Microsoft will be no different in that regard. So whatever they do with it I doubt it will even remotely resemble the Perfect Dark that I loved on the N64

This is good. Bring it!



Gameplay > Graphics

Substance > Style

Art Direction > Realism

i guess anything is ok at this point. I imagine MS would want their own 'Uncharted' style game. PD makes sense for that.



I’m interested either way. We have enough shooters though, so an adventure game like Tomb Raider would be cool.

No. Give us a pure reboot in the same way doom did it. Then I'd be interested.

A Reboot would be great, I can definitely see that having great potential, however to be honest, PD64 was that good I don't really see the point in Rebooting it aside from making it look better. Maybe offer us a true sequel to the N64 game, Perfect Dark 2.

Fair point, we all want another PD64 game, however lets look at the reality of the modern generation. MS already have 1 of the best sci-fi shooters on the market in Halo and bots and multiplayer modes can quite possible be added in the next Halo games. Having two Sci-Fi shooters competing over the same thing to me is a little pointless. Halo can focus on those things you mention where I see PD has a lot more potential in becoming something a lot more greater than just another MP game. I can see a true epic story in its already fantastic sci-fi world. Could quite possible become the next TR/MGS game on the market something MS can house as there very old.

If Halo added bots for it's multiplayer modes then that would be great.

But Halo isn't really the same kind of game as Perfect Dark was so I'd still want that from any Perfect Dark game too. It's the weird characters, crazy weapons and all the different game modes and maps that made it interesting to me. Plus all the challenge modes they had as well. Timesplitters was great for the exact same reasons, understandable since it was made by the same people. But other games with bots have never really lived up to those games. Call of Duty and Killzone have had bot modes at times but it's just been regular multiplayer with bots and I'm sure if Halo were ever to add them then it would be the same, but that's not what I'm looking for.

I 100% hope they go the Tomb Raider route with it, we have enough shooters on Xbox. Make it a reboot, set further in the future. Change her appearance somewhat. Cinematic focus. 3rd person action-adventure with stealth elements. Hopefully the rumors are true and it's already in development, I would love to get it early next-gen.



I'd prefer it to be the Splinter Cell of Xbox although I wouldn't mind this rumored route.



I don't see what good it would do to turn Perfect Dark into a TPS. Just...make a damn Perfect Dark game.

If they really want a 3rd person game I'd much rather see them resurrect Jet Force Gemini.
