Guide Review - James Cameron's Dark Angel

When you first pick up James Cameron's Dark Angel you will be pleasantly surprised. The graphics are good, Jessica Alba does great voice work, combat is fun, and there seems to be a lot of potential.

Unfortunately after beating the tar out of several dozen guards and blowing up countless 'gas cans' to bust through walls you wonder if there's going to be anything more. Unfortunately there isn't. The recipe is pretty simple: beat soldiers, whip out a key, sprinkle in a boss, repeat. The level design really holds back an otherwise promising game.

If you are a Dark Angel fan, you'll love the game. There are bonus pictures, interviews, and more. But, if it's a choice between Buffy, Spiderman, or Dark Angel... well I don't like her odds.
