  1. For a game that came out of nowhere Dark Angel delivers the prime time goods and then some. [Jan 2003, p.60]
  2. Just as Dark Angel is guilty of repetitive character models and backgrounds, the game design is guilty of repetitive action, which is unbelievably stagnant.

    Unfortunately, the stealth elements fall tragically short of well conceived—it’s more along the lines of comically maddening.
  4. I probably got very close to the end, but I just couldn't endure it any longer. The wretched camera angles, the lackluster level design and the repetitious gameplay were more than I could take for a full 25 missions.
  5. The game is essentially a distillation of everything "cool" about the show, so after about five minutes of play, you start to understand why the show was cancelled. [Feb 2003, p.104]
  6. Even wedged between a sesame seed bun and two succulent patties of seasoned beef smothered in fried onions, mustard and barbecue sauce, I couldn't get Dark Angel to taste any better. This game is strictly a chuck steak.
  7. Not even fans of the cancelled TV show will find anything remotely resembling fun or enticing gameplay in Dark Angel to justify the rental expense.
