Amazon.com Product Description: James Cameron’s Dark Angel is a third-person action-adventure game, with emphasis on stealth and fighting, based on the hit TV series of the same name. Set against the backdrop of a post-apocalyptic Seattle, the game lets players take on the role of Max, a genetically enhanced super-soldier, on a quest to reclaim her past by finding her sister and fellow genetically altered escapees. As a child Max escapes from Manticore, her military creators, along with a handful of her siblings and makes a life for herself on the edgy streets of 21st-century Seattle. Haunted by dark memories of her victimization at the hands of Manticore personnel, Max is on a quest to reclaim her past and locate her missing siblings. Max believes that by finding her family she can overcome the battle that rages inside her, as the soldier she has always been is confronted by the woman she wishes to become. You will play through multiple missions and objectives on each level, which will include side stories of lost siblings, destroying Manticore, and helping Logan Cale overturn corrupt government movements.
Better than buffy!, November 11, 2002
Reviewer: A gamer
i have played both the ps2 and xbox version, as there was very little differnce between them. This game reminds me a lot of buffy the vampire slayer only better. The motion isnt as stiff as it was in buffy. The xbox version had a little more fluid motion as the fighting was felt almost like dead or alive. Like I said the difference is very little. Dark angel has many alphets like buffy, except more prettier. The fighting is very good. The part i really hated about buffy was that u can only do 3 hit combos when u press the same buttton again, but in dark angel u can link a lot more moves when u button mash. Enemies range from thugs to what it looks like burglars (I havent seen the show at all so i dont know what significance those ppl have to Dark Angel) the atmospheres are kool. The only thing they should work on is dark angels face, it sorta looks like jessica alba, but not really. The thing that i love the most of course is the motion. its great. i think it is 60 frames per second two times as much as buffy. and max does some acrobats and gymnastic "stuff" like flips and aerial "stuff".
i really liked playing this game, but i only played it for lik 30 minutes so i really dont know the true essence of this game
