Perfect Dark Zero was the first and BEST first-person shooter of this generation

Perfect Dark Zero was the sequel to Perfect Dark and it featured Joanna Dark. It was a launch title for the Xbox 360, making it one of first major FPS. This was a first-person shooter that you can tell they put effort into. The graphics were meant to showcase what the Xbox 360 could do. It had a single player campaign and a multiplayer, and basically the game played like Halo, which is awesome.

The reason why I think this was a great game is because it had four difficulty levels, different objectives within the levels, it had co-op mode, and had a multiplayer that was a lot like Halo and it included bots. A lot of FPS don't even have bots. It was one of the first games to have achievements (well all of the launch titles had them). Basically, Perfect Dark Zero had a lot of new things that hadn't been done before, and Microsoft actually planned a lot of cool things with it. It had everything that a FPS should have and they put effort into this game.

My question, I've heard some criticisms about this game, but I'm not really sure why. The game sold well and was a platinum hits game, but they didn't make a sequel. I wonder why people didn't like this game that much. I just think it's a great Halo-clone game, and they did a good job with it.

I'm curious about your thoughts on Perfect Dark Zero, and perhaps what characteristics a great FPS shooter should have, if you think another FPS was great as well.

Also, it's a prequel not a sequel.

Best FPS this gen and you don't even know anything about it....

Oh yeah, I guess Perfect Dark One would be the sequel, which would be really cool if they released Perfect Dark One on the Xbox One.

I bought this game when it was first released and never finished it because it was all around terrible

terrible controls
terrible HDR lighting
terrible "story"
everything in the game was shiny for some reason

PDZ does have some of the best textures this gen though thanks to the bump mapping.
