What is Perfect Dark?

The game follows Joanna Dark, an agent of the Carrington Institute research centre, as she attempts to stop an extraterrestrial conspiracy by rival corporation dataDyne. The game’s campaign mode features a variety of levels, each with its own unique objectives. Players must use a variety of weapons and gadgets to complete the levels and defeat enemies.
