    1. I have always loved sci-fi books or books that have background stories for games I have heard of or love. This game Perfect Dark Zero I have heard of but never played because I don’t have either an Xbox 360 or N64. With most books you get an excellent background of the character, place the game is in, the time (the year), and who is the enemy and all that. In this book it starts off with Joann Dark staying at the head of a super-corporation’s home 6 months after the murder of her bounty hunt [...]


    2. RATING: 3.5PROTAGONIST: Joanna Dark, ex bounty hunterSETTING: 2020SUMMARY: An experimental novel by Greg Rucka, the book continues the epic story featured in the XBox 360 game, Perfect Dark Zero. It's a thriller set in 2020 and involves corporate espionage. Joanna Dark slays all dragons in her path. As you might guess, since it is based on a video game, it is high on action and a bit lower on character development. Rucka pulls it off, just as he does for anything he touches, but it doesn't measu [...]


    3. I forgot how much I loved Rucka's female characters. I would gladly read a whole series just about Jo, and Cassandra and Velez were awesome as well. Need to get the sequel on audio too.


    4. It's a novel based on a sci-fi FPS video game. Assuming you aren't expecting Shakespeare or Harlequin Romance material, this isn't half bad.The characters are surprisingly well done, and even the cardboard bad guys aren't. The plot line skeleton would fit a video game just fine, but it's fleshed out here with enough detail to make it believable and somewhat logical.In fact the only real downfall of the book is it's written like it's the next sequel in the game. It doesn't end so much as pause af [...]


    5. This Book is a very nice Sci-fi. It features the time when everyone tries his hand in the play for power. Scientists rule the world and not always for the greater good. Agents with enhanced abilities get lots of action on the game board. I have find out that this book was made after the computer game only after I started reading it. And by then it didn't really matter. I was too curious to let it go.


    6. This fast paced, action packed novel will keep you on the edge of your seat. Since it is told from multiple perspectives, it allows the reader to opposing viewpoints converge into the overarching storyline. The characters are well developed and the plot is intriguing. I can't wait to read Perfect Dark: Second Front. Books like this are the reason why I enjoy reading; the sci-fi genre offers so much originality and creativity.


    7. I loved the original Perfect Dark video game for the N64. It was amazing! So ahead of its time! Groundbreaking and imitated by many games since(including popular ones like Halo). The second game was not very good, but the books based off it are pretty good. The story is good and the book is short enough so it doesn't drag out.



    8. Having no real affection for the Perfect Dark video game, I was satisfied with this book just because of Rucka. Futuristic corporate espionage is a fun sandbox for him to play in.


    9. This is a good story, fast-paced, and a quick read. I greatly enjoyed it, even though I've never played anything on an XBOX360.


    10. Starts off rather slowly, but the book picks up around page 50. Not a great story, but for Perfect Dark fans this is entertaining enough.


    11. Based on the video game Perfect Dark. Greg Rucka manages to create a three dimensional character worth caring about. Packed with action.
